20th century intelligence - ending poverty of half world without electricity -although Keynes 1936 (last capter general theiry money inetrest emplymen) asked Economists to take hipocrati oath as the profession that ended extreme poverty, most economists did the opposite. Whats not understandable is how educatirs failed to catalogue the lessons of the handful who bottom-up empowered vilages to collaboratively end poverty. There are mainly 2 inteligences to understand- Borlaug on food; fazle abed on everything that raised life expectancy in tropical viage asia from low 40s to 60s (about 7 below norm of living with electricity and telecomes). Between 1972 and 2001, Abed's lessons catalogued in this mooc had largelu built the nation of Bangladesh and been replicated with help of Unicef's James Grant acroo most tropical asian areas. What's exciting is the valley's mr ad mrs steve jobs invted Fazle Abed to share inteligences 2001 at his 65th birthday party. The Jobs and frineds promised to integrate abed's inteligence into neighborhod university stanfrd which in any event wanted Jobs next great leap the iphone. The Valley told abed to start a university so that women graduates from poor and rich nations could blend inteligence as Abed's bottom of the pyramid vilage began their journey of leapfrog modles now that gridd infarstructures were ni longer needed for sdiar and mobile. Abed could also help redesign the millennium goals which were being greenwashed into a shared worldwide system coding frame by 2016. There re at Abed's 80th birtday party , the easy bitwas checking this mooc was uptodate. The hard bit - what did Abed mean by his wish to headhunt a taiwanese american to head the university's 3rd decade starting 2020?

4.3 why sustainability may yet depend on how we spend youths time from 11+ 4.4

abed-japan embassy debrief 2012 quite frankly millennial goals up to 2015 overemphasised primaryaid  to exclusion of livelihoods and teens needs - as early as mid 1990s we were forced into being the world's beyond the classroom teens girls metalab but that may not be a bad thing- pretty much every community livelihood girls can own now has peer to peer mentoring clubs somewhere across brac international 12 countries -hi touch networking

37th annual update 2025report.com on education determines sustainability

===============if we are to leap forward in 21-22 we must get tech right for teens starting with women in most desperately challenged livesmatter communities

asia is discussing this through alumni and zoom summits of www.educommissionasia.org which starts 6 months of asia leading world change in education - see december's triple reports of the year - yidan hong kong; wise qatar;   rewired2021.com dubai and un and uae expo relay with japan

if there is anywhere that might change beyond classroom in usa try moving along with  czi 


 why did all 4 industrial revolutions devalue what sdg teens needed most?

the british empire system was designed to examine out 99% of youth as fast as possible- to adminster the empire you needed to be of one mindset intellectuslly- anyone whose talents could have been pracxtica - eg artistic was the first to be examined out; 

although flow studies of maximising human potential eg csik recomment maximising time each person spebds at the experiemtial edge of the most unique skill- few western edu systems permit that- in usa you getexamined or you become a top sports star or your on the streets

compare this with nordica langiage of we hsave no bad schools, no standard exams, no homework- all our communities are safe energetic places for teens to engage their afternoons in ...

when you look to abed alumni contributions to 11-17 education- you do have to look practice by practice; until 2015 millennium goal aid focused only on primary schols getting every child in one - so in the developing world, secondary funding is extremely scarce

the fact that this forces skill by skill investments - eg coding schools for teenage girls, oeer to peer adolescent girls health training, girls small enterprise clubs in ten skills women provide to women from haircutting to garment design may not be a bad thing but you certainly need to look specifically for whos inspired who for abed 4.3


when it comes to white empire history of not valuing most teens you might want to check out my fathers 1986 survey in the economist which rewinds back to the start of adam smith's industrial revolution and appraisal of what oxford's purpose was in selecting which teens it neded and what it would do to them

    manolo yes i think it would be great if we can start one message group which specifically asks which places support 11th grade up alumni- this can for example be the magic of american intl schools; through the extraordinary 1990s book jeffersons children by botstein-- as you know from discussions with joseph and his superstar teen afghan musician - it was intended to be the dna of soros worldwide new uni partners but the carnegie and tufts and central euro uni civic engagement method used doesnt seem to me to start with 11th graders.... conversely my understanding is if you graduated from barcelona ai and its servant leader community projects engaged in from age 7 up then wherever you go barcelona around world - even harvard! -barcelona and so english-spanish most entrepreneurial dual skills is one of the sdg networks you always love being in; so which other sister cities value their 11th graders up for lifelong impacts in co-creating the first sdg generation; i assume inger can find that our for nordica unless before cop26; i assume friends of sunita can star to map many indian states in that way; i say an interview of mary robinson earlier this week in her capacity as leader of mandela elders - she says the pandemic in one sense is a cause for hope- its the first time in the 21st c that even those who enjoy the greatest powers of global are asking for system change (for 3 years at start of 21st c i moderated emotional intel for european union across all cities - barcelona was officially top knowledge city - for the eu descxended from that valuation of barcelona youth through subprime to making madrid its top down enforcer is something i barely understand even after attending wise in madrid -manolo i will try and catch up - is anything happening between your teenagers michigian university one of the few places to award abed on health, amazon & nations navy as health servants to the excluded; if there is something happening then you need to write your own ltter to qatar foundation if i may be so bold and/or contact abeds most relevant friend in africa on that reeta roy mastercard foundation also tufts alumn and potentially able to reconnect jim kim with africa which existed while he was at world bank but sadly has gone missing since trump removed him .ops as safiqul knows a high point in soros/aded life was 2013/4 abed os laureate- all of abed , soros, pih.org paul farmer travelled to 2 days of celebrating 1 abed 2 bottom up health servants 3 soros economics in budapest; then hungary's borders were flooded with immigrants due to terrifyingly careless eu policy; and narionalism took off in hungary and blamed soros- this is not what budapest teenager von neumann intended with industrial revs 3 and 4 just as what we got up to world war 2 was not what glasgow intended ir1 2 to spin from 1760 - can anyone bring a map to cop 26 of every year n history where something went globally off path from human common sense- one advantage of reading dads bio of von neumann is you can make at least 50 missed crossroads of peace tech worldwide- welcome suggestions of any tech book 1950-2020 which can be used for such a mooc
