Billanthropy refers to billionaires who have co-branded themselves as committing (up to) half their wealth to  millennials' goals. The 85 wealthiest people (ref 1 2) own more than the 40% poorest so help us map the league table of billanthropists below, and why end poverty innovation poses unusual challenges to this tribe

George Soros Benchmark Billanthropy -ref Keynes 2025Now

1 One of earliest billanthropists- first investment south africa 1978

Other firsts include:

1992 starts open society university with gorbachev and central european pro-youth networks out of budapest ;-> 2000 gorbachev starts nobel peace laureate summits with club of rome

1996 soros funds yunus' grameen phone - the start of ending poverty through village partnerships with mobile connectivity -see women4empowerment alumni networks of first female director of grameen phone

circa 1996 funds end tb in russian prisons with Kim and Farmer -  ultimately kim and farner beconme pivotal to end ebola out of west african ; by time if 20th open society laureates gusets are sir fazle abed of brac and paul farmer of pih

 2008-9 launches ineteconomics to rethink economics from ground up

 2012: 20th open society celebrations with fazle abed of BRAC and paul farmer (co-founder with jim kim of partners in health ) out of CE University in Budapest

Soros' childhood experiences in societies (eg see norman macrae's biography of von neumann and budapest'svaluation as best ever learing city for growing mathematicians) being destroyed by Hitler has conditioned an unique valuation of morality but one often criticised as being beyond politics and religious power games. His expert practice of proving which currecncies have become paper bubbles makes him an enemy of bad banking and arrogant politicians/medi men.

soros understands technical and geo political follies of european union - especially ukraine-russia- and everywhere youth in non-pivotal (according to german-swiss-luxembourg finaceurs) countries are being turned into lest generations -there is a clear system connection with walesa's solidarite networks and pope's (current pope francis was first made cardinal by pope john paul who had been cultural champion walesa needed during Poland's freedom from USSR.

survey 1of child centric education

IF SCHOOLS were child centric they would make age relevant interventions:

if anyone is illiterate at age 6 it only takes 90 days to change that - best of all a literate kid can be main helper in 20 minute session - see sunita gandhi

finacial literacy would be practicsed from age 8 - see aflatoun ( works in 100 countries

from age 10 pre-teens would have access to pfysical and mental health studies designed peer to peer -see Lancet

no kid would leave primary school without knowing how open space meetings/teamwork is facilitated

teachers would be celebrated for clarifying which skills involve experiential learning not classroom examination - while there is some recognition that music and sports involve practice, its shocking that coding isnt valued this way ..


Do you have life-changing moment to share? - what was it and what did you think or do differently after it?

example until 9/11, i assumed that (good) futures are happening somewhere in the world and would be searched out so that all could communally replicate them;  === 9/11 caused me to question whether global connectivity will give us time to find sustainable solutions for our kids- i became particulaly interested in places where good education leaps appeared but did not get app'd the world over - one example actually goes back to my favorite 1990s advances in schools that a small cliuster of new zealand schools pioneered - download it here

i welcome discussion of this book's parts at any time rsvp if you have a solution every community that develops youth could be cooperational

in 1984our book with economist editors 2025report made the case for 40 year commitment to every child identifying own skils dashboard and maximising AI curation of this- we valued this as sustainability critical worldwide cooperation - we see no logic for changing this concern

== we live in an age where most up to half of knowhow of techforgood changes every 3 years - we needed mindsets for exploration not for being standard examined; a nation that makes its college students its largest debt class is likely to collapse economically socially environmentally if web3 is designed for celebrating sustainability cooperation; and if web3 is not designed for neough yout to linkin the first sustainability generation then we are all heading the way of the dodo

I am learn to learn  

TECH - What is IT? and which exponential multipliers most impact human and natural futures?

AI   >. silicon chip singularity (ie when one chip > one brain in pure analytical capacity) - science fictiion no moore

who programs the ai - the race to include lost voices eg girls- the world of statistics re=-examined like never before (eg previously mass statistics very weak at coding meaining from numbers)

Biotech  >> Affective science (loveq and emotional intelligence remains human's unique edge over artificials for at least 10 more years!)

Some people say that Virtual or Augmented Reality has advanced at its best so far in last 12 months that there are hardly any qualified teachers only pioneering explorers- does this matter - well its VR which is your gateway to web3 - intead of just a mobile device you will like wear  a visual sensor system; equally others argue that you shouldnt worry about how fast you put googles on - what you should want is to take back ownbership of what you spend time creating virually- look at the small print of the big platforms you probably dont own anything without them..maybe this is a generation issue bu interstingly the met-generation can now work on chnaging anything that old systems are destroying (eg climate) ...t 

 IOT which things will now have brains and be as mobile connected as you are

Crypto - can communities celebrate financiang their own most urgent sustainability cooperations? if they dont who wil?

Cyber >> Drone - opportunities and threats of public spaces- first in spaces like the arctic circle if we dont use drones we will get no warning before the big meltdown

-the mkist memorable western campus event i attended in 2010s was tufts colllaboratory summit convened mainly by arctic circle youth under 25; 

one of the main debates how to help teachers in arctic circle schools empower their students to use virtual reality to visit other arctic circles schools communities; many of the changes and solutions are analogous; I am reminded by educators leading the compilation of virtual realty libraries of the DICE acronym - a reen might want to do something dangerous like climb everest, why not VR simulate that? there are impossible things a trainee doctor will never be able to travel inside a humans gut but that can be VR'd; there are catastropghic simulations - you would rid the world of bees just to test if donald is wrong about nature being more powerful than he is, you can simulate it; or the future of smart tourism may be curation of what a community is proudest of being visited for - this way ecotourism, cultural appreciation exchanges can be twinned to maximise celebration of each other- and by the way friends of the tourist can join in virtually- of corse this raises a metaverse question - that Hong Kong is leading the world on

being 100% public - good and bad hacs- note context matters - context 1 smart city context 2 isolated vilalge no moore context 3 make a huge land safe at borders
