100 times more tech every decade has changed everything - see von neumann alumni; BUT which universities and school systems are helping youth connect PRACTICE most needed for last mile sustainability everywhere children are born to sustainably co-create with; .
..Can humnas design a world in which each next girl born has a good chnace to thrive?Clearly this question was not the purpose of the white men from Europe who from late 1490s set out to acquire places -in new world America via old world Africa and Asia...Scot Adam Smiyh can be read as both the last person to ask this question in would before engines (moral sentiments 1758) and first 16 yeras of engines (advantage of nations 1776) . (Adam's first disappointment was that Scotlan's land of engineer was unable to join in an united states of english speaking freedom- instead america decalred indepndenc leaving Scots ruled by London. iN 1843, Lomdon Scot James Wilson founded The Economist to renew Smith's question - could queen victoria start desiging empire of commonwealth instead of one starving the Irish, stuntiing the peoples of India etc/.The centenary autobiography of The Economist in 1943 recognises that root cause of world war was the then G* most powerful nations had not been addressing this question: when the war ended in 1945 the UN was foinded to have another go at asking this question as well as to reboot advanced economies.It can be argued that about 75 years later, digital UN2 as advanced by Guterres (with quest for digital cooperation beginning 3 months before his 10 year appointment when educatirs reviewing the first year of sdg4 saw a system with no hope of most youth's inclusion- humans didnt not just need goals but transformation of systems connecting every community) Apps that share life critical knowhow multiply value in use unlike consuming up things. It beggars belief that essentially the same 8 empires that misapplied machines 1760-1939 have brought the world to the verge of extinction again by not valuing digital cooperation/learning economics even though we have had satellite coms since 1964 and von neumann 1951 briefed economist journalists on the world's most valuable question what (above zero-sum) good will peoples do with 100 times more tech every decade 1930s to 2020s....You don't even need hi-tech to see how a billion asian women ended rural poverty 1972-1996. At fazle Abed's 80th birthday party a tent went up at brac's car park in dhaka with 5 subspaces - each was like a waxwork's stiry of a decade of progress so you couild see what added to what in what sequence (figures were actually made of paper mashier. We have filed the journey of the 30 greatest cooeprations womens webbed to end extrreme poverty here. Lets hope it reminds those lucky enough to be at the edge of every hi-tech under the sun that the most valauble purspoe (indeed all sustainability goals) needs to go deep into maos blueprinted by hand. Otherwise an algorithm is only as usful as what data it excluded. Abed died decembere 2019 just before guterers started to ask will un2.0and ed3 get digital cooperation right or are we condeming the younger half of the world to be the first extinction generation.What would you do if you were a young economic journalist who had survived his last drays as a teenager as a navigator in allied bomber command burma campaign and in 1951 you meet von neumann in princeton and were instructed on the biggest journalistic scoop ever - train economic journalists to ask what peoples want to do with 100 times more tech every decade 1930s to 2020sI can tell you what my dad norman did, and some of his followers. Dad really liked Kennedy' two sixtoes challges: moon race mostly because staellite telecoms could one day connect all being to share life critical knowhow; and interdepence of a triad of human development - about a tenth out of atlantic 2.0 (ie america) about a tenth out of atlantic 1.0 west europe - over 65% out of pacifi ocean with perhaps 15% yert to identify which coastines to access world trade from (80% being shipped); meanwhile dad spent hos 1950s listening to what peopels wanted - eg as only journalists at borth of eu messina 1955; aged 39 the economits let dad sign one surbvey a yera so 1962 he chose peoples of japan and asia Rising; 1963 peopels of Russia; 1964 brazile and latin america...1969 rainbow alliance of usa;from 1972 dad was alarmed that nixon had taken dolar off gold standards - so he addeed in 40 year future survey focusing particulary=ly of new tech of finance, education and health; by 1976 romanno prodi was joining in translating the entrepeeuirial revolution worldwide communities would need... and from 1884 dad and I tuirned 40 yera futures into a book form - 2025 report listing sustainability deabliens and probable best first and last chnaces to globally and locally brainstorm solutions - of course alumnisat needed to bring down costs of millennails universities to near zero - the opposite of making colege studnts the biggest debt class.While covid makes Asian networking a challenge, I mainly host meetings in ny (eg around Flatiron) or DC region or by zoom; i am interested in people who have a solution they want to mentor 1000 student community builders to apply; speed & scale- if app is really useful you soon get 1000 by 1000 alumni actions for sustainability -12 years ago my number 1 sdg hero started debating 100 times more effective universities and this matched my dad's life work at the economist so this is why- i now believe 1000 mentoring circles can be funded through NFTeds but only where endorsed by United Nations- could this fit with whatever you most want to share?? - more coming at www.alumnisat.com and friends' co-platforms of metacodes.comwelcome from chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk Who do you learn from most? 40 years ago - I co-authored 2025report.com - searching for world's partners in sustainability. After 9/11 I nearly gave up until my friends and I came across Fazle Abed and a billion Asian women's work since 1972. After 15 trips to Bangladesh here's a catalogue of extraordinary partners in sustainability and transforming education

book sampler draft - What’s been happening to humanity over the last 75 years?
This book is dedicated to two men, and one billion poorest women[i].   their lives show that hi-trust hi-tech action networking can sustain our species, and even turn the 21st century into the happiest and most loving time for every life on earth. In 2020, marooned as we humans are by a natural virus, we seek in a small but enterprising way to unite optimistic rationalism
Humanity’s 7 wonders?
We offer seven frameworks which mediate both men’s experiential learning curves, and gravitational attraction to sustainability development goals[ii]. They understood the likelihood of opposite system endgames such as orwell’s big brotherdom or the concerns that Einstein and Gandhi shared if nations undervalued family driven community building. HG Wells identified the core problem : civilization is a race between education and catastrophe.
One man is my father norman macrae. He spent his last days as a teenager in world war 2  navigating airplanes in bomber command over today’s Myanmar (then Burma) and Bangladesh then the eastern end of the british raj’s subcontinent of india. Surviving that experience, optimism became dad’s password.  He flowed through the last class taught by Keynes at Cambridge, married the daughter of the diaspora scot sir kenneth kemp who wrote up the legalese of india’s independence then became the economist’s end poverty and tech futures sub-editor for 40 years. Norman wrote over 2000 leaders for the economist but it was 17 years before he was permitted one signed annual survey. Typically of norman: his first named survey in 1962 considered his old war time enemy japan[iii]. Much to the English establishment.s consternation, dad reported the future of ever smarter engineering has arrived in asia whose peoples can now rise and rise. Fortunately prince Charles was deputized to attend the Tokyo Olympics, his rapport with the Japanese emperor’s family and akio morita of sony changed European decision-making futures by asking japan”s Sony to inward invest in “my country wales”.
 Dad saw borders as where risks to our species are most likely to compound. While I have always dreamed that the bbc[iv] could discover public broadcasting world service’s unique purpose, its only David attenborough’s lifelong exploration of nature’s borderless dynamics that matches our demands for smart broadcasting tv.  Moreover,  Norman never stopped scribbling about the need to love each other’s children and map back from the future possibilities with joie de vivre[v] – his retirement included a Sunday times column, the biography of john von neumann and his last project preparing a small foundation to send English and Chinese female apprentice journalists to Bangladesh 15 times.
In Bangladesh  our apprentice journalists met both sir fazle abed and Muhammad yunus. Both are extraordinary people but sadly yunus forfeited his bank to the prime minister making it even more essential that fazle abed’s alumni networks grew to be the world’s largest coalition of NGOs. ( By 1972 the economist started a series of future histories imploring organizational legislators to identify a best of government and corporate networking terminology -that’s what Bangladesh rural women partnerships by designing foundations with positive cash flows did but the english mindset to this day does not yet seem to have advanced beyond NGO non government organization terms )
Luck in timing blended with diversity of context is needed to turn journalism into transformation knowhow worthy of  youth’s application as the next generation  -an exploratory quest dad catalogued at the economist in his signature genre of entrepreneurial revolution. Soon after norman’s death Glasgow university helped stage a remembrance summit[vi] guested by Muhammad yunus, and The japan embassy in dhaka kindly hosted 2 remembrance diiners to my father where sit fazle abed was both chief guest and moderator of 4 hours of brainstorming. He chose :
·         a project coalition he believed he had time to assemble – partners in cashless banking for a billion
·         and a project he told the Chinese and anyone who would listen that was both a dream and hopefully his succession pathway – middle income traps can only be prevented by a coalition of 100 new universities that value the sdg generation most and are distributed round the world so that all populations lives matter[1]
A device used in this book is that names in bold print indicate that a search of worldrecordjobs.com will provide a lot more contextual details on these humans contributions and alumni. We also ask for two kinds of support- corrections are welcome if we have missed any life-critical knowhow ; and if you search our web and find your favorite human source is missing, we’d love to know – chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk

As I grew up in London of the 1950s/60s, I am eternally grateful for my life which would not have existed without the generosity of americans who twice saved the old world’s tri-continent and odd islands from global wars. But with hindsight I see that I too innocently believed in the American dream without understanding that systemically embedded the us constitution is also a living nightmare – that of being an underclass due to coior of skin, gender or other cultural minority[vii]
Its worth noting several limitations on English language education in the mid 20th century. Through my schooling the most advanced computational tool was the slide ruler. Additionally there was no curriculum of 20th century geohistory- perhaps the british establishment let alone its education profession could not agree what had happened. We were not for example informed that the era of empires had trapped nearly three quarters of the human race in poverty -rouhgly 55% on continent of asia , 12% Africa, 5% central and south America,  3% elsewhere without access to electricity grids or other utilities. Ironically I failed to chat about this with dad- responsibility for a weekly newspaper meant his mind was preoccupied six and half days a week
