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

Wednesday, July 15, 2020

sir fazle abed died 20 dec 2019 - so we aim to catalogue cases partners of fazle abed coailitions here
health partners the finance servce then education and other partnere- you will se e that up to 50 ers worls connecting tguhe most digitallhyi divided vilagers to timing when to tgech leapfrog involes a lot of details - if you need ti understahd  case in much deeper levels than tehse summarues - we sugget you conatct leadership at brac univrsiti the colalition dur fazle abed set up t be his legacy

oral rehydration coalition -format peer to peer training in villages  e pakitan cholera lab , chinese barefoot medics james grant unicef - lives saved since 1970s quarter of all village infants humid asia (eg bangladesh d china)- direct estimate quarter a billion people led directly to half a million village mother jovbs- par health franchise -basic health education and pharmacy-  jointly with borlaug village rice businesses led to banking for poor microfinance plus first of 8 components of total value chain of banking for poorest- led indirectly to life expectancy rising 40 to 60s and end if cultural expectation that mothers bred 8+ children so that 2 boys live; led to brac village mothers being the grassroots fieldforce for small pox inoculation- and brac being leader in deepest approached to ending tuberculosis, cholera -one of the big lessons of treating infectious diseases in last mile health systems is maximise inputs of those who survived the disease and have the antibodies to be frontline local servants and virus tracers

ending stunting during first 1000 days - sufficient food security/infant nutrition vital during fort 1000 days otherwise neither body or brain will develop fully- rice became main food security staple to end starvation as well as a sustainable village business  mothers could operate- alongside this a veggie like carrots needed since rice alone doesnt have enough vitamins to prevent eg night blindness

asian alumni of the american borlaug saved a billion lives by researching how staple crops could be maximised to small farm production- some crops like rice really dont have much scale advantage- paddy fields do not have an equivalent to huge american plains- locally a farmer can minimise chemical fertiliser if she has a seed optimally adapted to local conditions and closely watch no diseases start- fortunately the food prize presents alumni of borlaug in a good mixture of chronology and most impact-
poverty alleviation worlds most valuable school curricula

food and water security, ambassador_kenneth_m_quinn/ former us ambassador to cambodia and 20 year coordinator of world food prize initiated by borlaug the american researcher "Green Revolution" who probably saved a billion asians from starvation or stunting - abed was the 28th? laureate , the first was india's DR Swaminathan , the second was dr chandler who founded the international rice institute (IRRI) in Philippines in 1955 and Taiwan's AVRDC in 1972, the third was india's Dr. Verghese Kurien a mechanical engineer who developed diary cooperative network for indi's small farmers "operation flood" 1965, the fourth dr niederhauser who helped make the ;potato the number 4 staple crop in the world by developing disease resistant potatoes - working out of mexico his knowledge made mexico self-sufficient in ;potato production by 1962 and he established the Inter-American Potato Program in 1961 and the International Potato Program in 1966 to allow scientists from many countries, to collaborate in solving food production problems. Such strategies became the keystone for the newly created international agricultural research centers. the fifth were americans Edward F. Knipling & Dr. Raymond C. Bushland whose work from the 1960s successfully combated particular insects ruining crops , the sixth was China's | He Kang former Minister of Agriculture of the People's Republic of China, for implementing the reform policies that enabled China to become self-sufficient in basic food during the 1980s when his work helped the chinese compound food production by 8% each year in the 1980s

remembering the colonial age left half of the world mainly on the asian continent subsisting from day to day every advance in small enterprise crop science mattered more in the 1950s than all the nuclear scientists - more precisely read our biography on how von neumann was desperate to have a few years on the planet innovating programable computers having given his life to us race to nuclear

maternal care and wellbeing going hand in hand with infant village case - in countries like bangladesh with not enough trained nurses even for the cities - designing the basic health services raising life expectancy to 60s required innovation of para-health networking as well as maximising relevant teaching in schools-

in transferring brac lessons to africa, forme world bank leader jim kim has said 2015 something along the lines- i now realise its not exponentially economic to design a nation "economic assistance" until is hs a basic health system which brac provides the best value example- of course there diseases that bangladesh doesnt get but with about 80% of world poOrest living between latitude 30 and minus 30 bangladesh is a lab for vast majority of goal 3 solutions

ending tuberculosis - brac solutions attracted partnerships with jim kim george soros paul farmer and bill gates - all during the period 1995-2005- this also ed to james grant school being the founding college of brac university and swarthmore's epidemiologist vice chancellor being a leading member of the original governing board of brac university- swarthmore college was also the inspiration of other only other wise education laureate to include new universities in his alumnis's toolkit for education revolution - see patt

finance partners
by being the worlds first bottom up relief agency founded by a former regional ceo of an oil company multinational sir fazle had the ability to change both model of disaster relief and of development in fact fazle dared integrate 4 economic levels at same time - 1 village, 100000 village positive cashflow replication, national leaders , global market leadership 
PGP goal 17 correction - he never left girls out of public private partnerships- it takes 3 value multipliers to triangularise a any system mapmaker will confirm

-in bangladesh the total value chain of finance is linked by brac models -as is international finance as far as remittances (into bangladesh these represent about a third of foreign currency earnings) or poverty relevant digital fintech is concerned- we will revert with a fuller list of partners - but brac's overall fintech solution is called bkash.com and its main partners today are quadir tech wizard family with mit-=dubai legatum support with bill gates and jack ma- the grant manual program is called ultra graduation - its research verification won the abdul latif/toyota middle east mit poverty lab nobel economic prize; microfinance plus (this model was never turned into a curriculum by 20 years of the american microcreditsummit whose elad storyteller was muhammad yunus), brac city bank with a focus onr 2nd generation of village mothers who now work in the city - this bank also connects with brac international interface for remittances- there is also a merchant banking coalition for the poorest led by brac)- the international operations of brac are handled out of the netherlands- brac was also a founder member of the trade association www.gabv.org global association of banks with values- this was co-founded by shorebank which for nearly 30 years was the benchmark financial service network for regenerating south chicago community- just as one of fazle's abed's core immunology knowhow partners was swarthmore's vice chancellor, shorebanks founders exchanged knowhow on banking

disaster relief agencies often collect funds only for relief- ie they fly in serve the immediate disaster relief needs and fly out with there being a bridge ti development- also tgheir process of tyelief does not maximise local training and it loses the relationshipos of trust which conversely sir fazle could build by living in a region to serve both relief and edeveklopmentg needs- although development economics gives fancy names - effectively sr fazle innovated direct cash gtrasfer - give this money and you will get this skilos capacity as well as reslient commuty aset (eg cyclone proof hut with pit latrine attached) scaling among these specified people- lend m oney and you will sgtart sustainable business in vilage which are designed as microfranchises : 1 so that if vilage mother worlks har she gets a ;positive cash flow - 2 so thye whole value china across the natuon included productivities and demnds of the pooerst

as well as microfinance plus which trains village women in a microfranchise and provides their saving and loan needs

ultra graduation gives the very poorest a grant and training so that over a 2 year period they can develop to stage that they can become a microfranchise owner
brac bank in the cities aimed to serve daughters and sons of villagers who had moved to the city, as well as local smes and put brac operationally in the middle of all emerging technologies starting with those needed to serve international remittances- about a third of all trading income into bangladesh comes from remittances

brac city financiers also have a consortium which can be described as merchant banking for the poor eg looking after currency and other issues that give the poor a seat in national decision making should a disaster hit

brac has an international office ipn the netherlands- it serves remittance; connects international fundraising for bangladesh as well as seeking partners who wish to transfer a brac solution to another country- brac cannot use any money earned in bangladesh so partners need to want to gtale long=ter responsibility for transfering a brac solution

brac also operates the world leading fin tech coalition for the billion unbanked- this uses text mobile - though the models for this first emerged among blackberry users in kenya, by around 2010 bangladeshi americans at mit had hired kenya's original system designer of mpesa and put together tech partners to match brac's deepest trust in the community- many of the partners in the coalition had first been brought to dhaka by this team with their for village phones- however after years of trying to implement this with muhammad yunus the etch experts moved on since a fintech model cannot be financed by an organisation with no savings- tech leaps forward require the ability to invest in leapfroging - the brac bank a billion coalition now includes jack ma and bill gates

brac is also a founding partner of gabv.org the global association of banks with values- this was set up with alumni of south side chcnago's shorebank; brac and shorebank shared a lot of ideas and new stages of development - unfortunately during the subprime crisis- the us bank that had built communities whchc obama emerged form went under;

i am not sure the world ever needs another olympics - anyhow not until we have ended all pandemics- if all the tech in the world cannot be humanly applied to that goal what is te pont of celebrating anything else

however I know fazle abed  (and so the world's largest ngo coalition) not only wanted to end poverty but like adam smith before him - he dreamed of a world that gave every person time to enjoy arts or sports as well as work and family/community -the experiential learning needed to entertain others builds the kind of self=confidence/respect every child most needs to know they can contribute

I would ask americans to consider www.kobe.mba and www.fazleabed.com as linking in the same future pathways for millennials to end plagues as well as not only legislating and  valuing all lives matter but enjoying all lives matter

wrj101.jpg  Humanising AI can make 2020s most exciting decade for jobs creators and youth as the sustainability generation- i have participated in at leat 100 debates on what humans and machines can do since my fathers first 3 debated in The Economist from 1962

  • what if every child/teacher had a japanese pocket calculator (dad brought one back in 1962 from his Japan trip -the first of 30 annul surveys he wrote in the economist- at the time engineers and students opitimum tool was thye slide ruler- one lead dimesnsion of ai remains can computers be billion times more detailed stasti9cians than humsns alone cpould be if we give them real big data and demand analysis at smallest level of dynamics
  • will the moon race inspire optimism around teh world that no mission is now impossible- what are the greatest humans dreams on earth to aim fir
  •  where will people become alumni of gordin moore's promiose that electronic engioneers will increats chip capacity 100 fold every decadee - that's a truillion times more macine intel than man raced to the moon with

 coming soo first full pach of cards - rsvp chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk to join in forts rounds of the game - for now hear are some rough links
