abedMOOC.com started from a brainstorming dinner convened by Japan Ambassador to Dhaka who noticed my father's surveys of Asia Rising begun with Japan 1962 (endorsed by JF Kennedy) had not completely detailed Bangladesh Rural Advancement's  contributions to sustaining humanity and celebrating nation building through women empowerment . Dad's last public birthday party had celebrated launch of Muhammad Yunus Global Social Business Book February 2008 with 40 guests at Royal Automobile Club, St James, London. Father had also paid for sampling 2000 of Yunus books, 10000 dvds (youtube style interviews with all grameen directors during summer 2008 when the Nobel judges opened Yunus Museum in Mirpur, as well as part of launch of 2 Journals by Adam Smith Scholars in Glasgow that had emerged from Yunus making the 250th keynote speech on Adam Smith Moral Sentiments Dec 2008. But Fazle Abed whom my father never got the chance to meet had started 11 years before Yunus Grameen Bank 1983 Ordinance , built health and agricultural foundations, and then schooling -altogether a 5 dimensions approach that was not possible to appreciate from onee dimensional microcreditsummit yunus the clintons, queen Sofia staged annually from 1997. Abed said we could do a Mooc if it was laid out round C for collaborations. He was keen to map how 6  Collabs per the 5 primary sdgs had been integrated through 2 quarters of a century 1972-1995 when rural meant no electricity grids or phones; 1995 when partnering platforms afforded extraordinary leapfrog models that could be designed with mobile networks and solar. It took 16 trips while Abed was alive (and the curiosity og many graduate journalists _ to get this mooc started, and we still try to update it even as Abed left the world in Dec 2019. We welcome corrections and omissions. We have attempted here to map the deepest economic miracle

  XUN21 feb 2021 UN Secretary-General António Guterres in a message read out by UN Resident Bangladesh Coordinator Mia Seppo  said Abed’s contribution in poverty alleviation and sustainable development are sources of great inspiration for the UN.  

“Sir Fazle Abed’s vision became Brac’s vision. He was against all forms of exploitation and discrimination. He was a strong advocate for women and through Brac he designed development models that placed women at the centre,”

Abed also understood that opportunity starts with the help of education, and Brac’s education model has been replicated around the world. 

“For Bangladesh, in the 1970s diarrhoea was the biggest killer. Sir Fazle Abed helped the country make dramatic advances in overcoming the disease through highly effective national campaigns. 

“Today the focus is shifting towards resilience in the face of climate change and humanitarian crises. Brac today is among the main responders to the Rohingya crisis. I know that Brac will continue to keep alive the vision of its founder.”

Guterres said the UN will stand with Brac in carrying forward Abed’s important work.

mapping asians gift to humanity- 100 most collab universities of sustainability generation

in asia universities of life were planted by women in tropical villages from bangladesh to china- solutions to save infants from death, moters from srvation and exclusuon were borderless across the continent but it was epidemiologists who made the translation from bangladeshi to chinese, from muslim to confucianism; the reason why these translations did not go west acroos rest of asia starting wth india goes back to how the brirtish partitioned the conrinemnt; india was told in 1947 pakistan would control  muslims east of calcutta; this cruelly spun 25 years more poverty round the peoples of the bay of bengal nbow excluded from what they had helped to build as the 19th century superport of cacutta; it wasnt that abed and other women empowerment networkers didnt want to share solutions across the while of asia; it was that only china respected bangladesh village women

 -may i recommend that making your glasgow event a repeatable zoom  that covers the breadth and depth of the debate abed wanted students to question about the purpose of universities is critical-- i may be wrong but i would like to know which of the following ideas will be raised by the people like malloch brown that you invite to your cop26 event; =========================================================================================draft story 2021-2001- aded asia's universities/students================                                                                               IN MAPPING Asia’s 100 most collaborative universities in sdg generation,Expect different segments – abed uni segment = deep learning, data-mapping and action segment gravitates round this question

Over half century since moon landing, What do we know about billion poorest women networks' unique contributions to sdg generation?


We know that Bangladesh was the first top 10 population nation to offer local experiment Collabs to researchers from richest nations, and that village women's progeny inspired by abed saw this about scaling  -there are now 3 generations of abedian women- probably the 3rd generation lead the rural to city transformation; % of urban population tripled during abed's 50 years -bangla was born 90% rural -while official gov represented 10% urban lives  ,trend expected to double go from 30% to 50% by 2050

thanks to the chens and james grant within 10 years the abed way became a borderless responsibility of billion poorest uniting mothers in china and bangladesh round 5 core markets value chains of rural keynesiaism

across  sdg2 land/food, 3 health, 4 education, 1money,  5 100% trust-productively inclusive community building ie smith moral sentiments summary of markets before engineers existed


It can be useful to adam smith alumni to appraise how direct access to village collabs helped "aid research" versus 4 industrial revolutions viewed as

A Engine power

B Mediation/morality of community culture -ie communications power

C Computational flows beyond slide rule/paper multiplying 100 fold every decade since death of von neumann

D Real time platform and quality/transparency data governance by ai algorithms not people- nb i use ai to mean all tech convergence since death of von neumann- so we dont have blockchain for sustainability yet but it is how ai/autonomous systems not human brains can analyse real time localities; we dont have many gps devices linked in for sustainability yet- sadly western "social media" is the design of  spun round the opposite of sustainability cooperation worldwide


Clearly university researchers who visited with village bangladesh or village china in 1970s and 1980s experienced reality of innovation challenges unimaginable sitting in ivory towers - specifically

How do people value/behave round the sdg1-5 life changing markets when they have no access to

Electricity grids- as health researchers know literally everything needs a different design if you have no electricity


B There is a hidden agenda that americans are not free to discuss- televisual plus media since 1964 (tokyo olympics 64 was first satellite coms broadcast) has been designed -ref norman macrae 1969 neurotic trillionnaire culture of nixon's state of americans-

In America media maximises fear, to disempower/hollow out community participation- there are many possible measures- eg how many  Americans employ psychiatrists or how their most expensive millennials celebrities are now drowning in mental health crises as confirmed by the first in series of covid-olympics; (with covids half life now expected to be at least 5 years and quite likely the whole of the rest of un-ssdgs 2020s- or why is more in usa is more spent on keeping 25% poorest American youth in prisons than in colleges; even if this is not judged on moral sentiments ground the majority of under 18 youth in usa today are non-white- are we preparing for 2030s when prison population of 20 year olds larger than college population- this is why mapping 100 asian universities of sustainability needs to lead not the people at osun- sorry! 

-women villagers emotional capital never had communities ruined by tv; and when they were given first access to solar and mobile

They leapt into lifesaving apps in the 5 core markets opposite to apps silicon valley capitalists designed- fortunately bracnet founding partner with abed was a japanese in silicon valley; actually jack ma's story is interesting- his founding partner in internet was taiwanese silicon valley jerry yang of yahoo who fixed softbank to be ma's main partner until covid forced softbank to sell out jack ma- there is a small part of singapore alipay and its main lab is bkash as shameran may be able to personally introduce you to; abeds 2nd last honor was from singapore- could you and shameran visit mahbubani and those in singapore who valued abed? i will try an make abeds most critical supporters of 21-22 at https://www.catholicuni.com/1971 this starts with guterres promise to help brac and since malloch brown claims to have edited the 2000 millennium goals he most know someone in both guterres and soros inside circles


3rd and 4th industrial revolutions - C&D above - need more discussion not just on the 5 core markets of rural keynesianism ending extreme poverty but on what abed called INTEGRAL TRIANGULARISATION of end poverty, grow middle class, go green- it is important asia identifies which places's universities are designing every GRADE FROM 9 UP INSPIRATION of curriculum of ai to support these queries- from 2011 if not earlier abed debated this with most Asian ambassadors and unesco event hosted in hangzou 2013 with both abed and the aga knan testifying face to face -possibly the first public exchange since 1971's war - abed's main joyful advice in starting up 100 asian uni collab go benchmark singapore, korea was his advice in 2011- in other words can eg Singapore share say

 5 universities each responsible for linking in  (eg student, prof exchanges)50 million sustainability livelihoods -50 million was abed's test of wheTher a university scaled!  after all he had scaled civic society partnerships (not ppp) to reach a billion livelihoods across people living in asean and bangladesh


if we map asia's 100 most collaborative universities of youth becoming the sdg generation- some can eg tap world economic forum and tech for good in Geneva -so help clarify in addition to singapore which capitals will host ir4 hubs determined to at least match Singapore’s potential liberation of 250 million livelihoods- will Tokyo, will beijing -did you say your last job connected you with number 3 person at peking uni –both places weforum and global youth shapers abedian entreprenEurs are planted eg singapore universities will each take responsibility for networking 50 million sustainability livelihoods


Other eg brac and ashesi university will continue to ensure women villager collabs are designed across Africa, the south, and tropical continental asia- brac university has at least 3 alumni networks 

Supporting that- ask mr and mrs chen to help clarify james grant college as number 1 world collab in extreme health challenges


celebrate erum through yidan about how every childs first experience of education is loving playful and safe


Ask shameran how the 6 moving pieces of finance designed by his father currently depend on SCALING ultra poor graduation LOCALLY TO GLOBALLY- this is like playschool to kids but is first experience of money for poorest illiterate villagers - abed cornered the startup of being human in health money and education; 100 asian collab universities need to be the roof to his foundations, and they need to leap forward each student year starting now 21-2...

1.1 2.1 3.1 4.1 5.1 STARTING UP 5 COMMUNAL SECURITIES - FINANCIAL, FOOD, HEALTH, EDUCATION, engaging communities openly with love & inclusion

 5.1 Meta-Collaboration Platforms Fortunately Abed's greatest mistake got him into designing  collab platforms for 100000 person livelihood meta-villages : micro-macro so to speak. To South Asia's smartest young engineer in 1972, at birth of Nation Bangladesh:  it seemed initially natural to spend his life savings rebuilding homes (15000 villagers) flattened by war. Oxfam rated it best relief ptoject. But Abed was broken hearted- -tens of village mothers were dying of starvation weekly- his answer 1.1 microfranchising solutions, transforming aid if needs be

What seemed urgently obvious to abed became a transfomration in aid1.1 .He needed to urgently design microfranchsises however small but so village mothers gained positive cash flow while ending starvation eg rice prodiction , building last mile heath service (eg distributing basic meds). Histiorically culture had prevented vilage women from being productive agents - here was a chance to square  a nationsd economy - manpower*womenpower.

For women to be massively, collaboratively and communally empowered to build a nation ending poverty the 5 most trusted and collaborative knowledgeable people they need access to are land engineer, educator, health worker, agricultural networker and banker

if you follow abed's 5 decades of empowering a billion rural asian women you will see how the 30 hunicorn jigsaw pieces (6 for the 5 primary sdgs) keep on being upgraded/gravitated around these value multipliers. We call microfranchise startups huniocors as these were too valuable fot abed the entrepreneur ever to want to exit - after all his putspoe was empowering women to end poverty across gebnerations not to cash out in any particular quarter. There is nothing more beuatiful sociallay and economically than a positive cashfkwo model as long as it trasnsaaparently intergars win-wons of all productive and demanding constituents. Adam Smith's ethical market design was being introduced through Abed on the Indian continent for the first time! No wonder Adam Smithians hail Abed as Glasgow's Universities most extraodtinary alumni sine smith and watt 1760s. If there is tio be a sustainability generation don't miss lieaning everything that can be found in the 30 collaborations 1 nillion Asian women empowered 2020-1970 - thank you Abed Bhai


the good news is this is a confirmation of the first 5 sdgs as intel and data everyone needs to trust building around

while building an undeveloped country please keep asking: is empowering this different from the western system of local government?; are those with knowhow behaving the way paulo freiere celebrates in pedagogy of the oppressed; we are talking about knowhow coming from living and learning with the people you empower - if for example a constraint common to everywhere abed's first 25 years of human development is no access to electricity grids (and so no telecommunication, no running water pipes) the knowhow has to be adapted to the local situation- by all means keep asking will there be an opportunity to leap to a better system - once villagers started to celebrate/hope from 1996 with microentrepreneurs of solar and mobile connectivity -what partnerships could take which sustainability goals to wholly new levels of valuing each others work and trust? 

in his last few years abed attended a civil engineering summit in bangladesh - typically he always had a personal story of a mistake he almost made until he listened to villagers and that he asked alumni not to make

4:5NOW PLAYING



5.1 when first taking on the rebuilding of 15000 village homes that had been flattened by war he asked a western architect friend to map out a plan- the villagers reacted in horror to the ma with main streets etc; they wanted homes built on the pieces of land they loved and viewed as rurally beautiful; in this first metavillage this was a reasonable request; if you remember the shell engineer who had first been turned into a poverty alleviation networked by a million people dying all around him in 1970's cyclone- abed was always asking does thos whole community have resiliency against the particular forces of nature it is situated in- unlike abed's first metavillage work over the 50 years would get more challenging as abed knew full well that if climate temperatures rice by over 2 degrees the chances of all the peoples in this 8th most populated nation being washed away increase exponentially- its not something under bangladeshi control it depends on whether neighbors are empowered by the 5 most natural community builders all across the continent

some people in the west may question whether it was good or bad fortune that the greatest collaborative spirit of women empowerment across the continent became the natural interdependence of bangladesh and chinese women - after all the way british history drew the borders all of myanmar, india and west pakistan saw bangladesh as the opposition;

5. notes on building 100000 person field lab 2004-1972

 book on fazle abed 

Golam Mortoza: Author of the book 'Fazle Hasan Abed O BRAC'.

  https://www.thedailystar.net/bangladesh/news/fazle-hasan-abeds-bangladesh-2084657   in 2004 abed recalls what he started and hoped in 1972 ...He smiled again, and started talking, "I imagined a happier and more prosperous Bangladesh; not the one we have now.' I used to visit Shalla in 1972 by travelling through difficult roads. I didn't feel any pain back then, and I still do not find it painful to remember those days." The success in Shalla smoothened the way for the future endeavours of BRAC. From the very first day, the way he conducted all the work is such a tale that, no matter how many times I hear it, it never fails to surprise me. He went to Shalla and handpicked educated young people who did not have work. He deployed them to collect data on damages. With the help of some teachers from the statistics and economics departments of Dhaka University, he analysed the collected data and determined the actual magnitude of the damages, and also the way forward. He brought enough tin from Japan to build 14 thousand houses.  He brought 6 lakh bamboos a huge amount of wood from Assam by floating the materials through Kushiara river. He built homes for people without any kind of irregularity or corruption. He also provided healthcare. BRAC managed to change the face of the war-torn Shalla within a few months,n Fazle Hasan Abed's own words, 'I went to London in 1972. There, I found out that the Oxfam officials are very happy with our work. BRAC was one of the best performing projects among the 700 projects that they were running across the globe. For that reason, getting money for our work became much easier.  


On April 24, Dr Muhammad Yunus, the only Nobel laureate in Bangladesh, spoke about the work of Fazle Hassan Abed. He said, 'All the people of Bangladesh have been touched by the work of Fazle Hasan Abed, one way or other. The span of Abed's activities was so vast that no one could be left out of its reach. Education, health, poverty alleviation, handicrafts—everywhere Abed has left his mark. Fazle Hasan has totally changed our traditional concepts of an NGO. He did things that no one could do before. No disaster could hold him back, he stayed in the frontline and became successful.
