Frameworks, Maps, Games- 2025 Report- Beyond Extinction Ed


Those of us alive in the 2020s share an extinction responsibility - saving our human race.

Exercise - as a fileldbook to chnaging the world so that its younger half are the first sustaimability generation, we will be asking you to clarify your own purpse of frameworks, maps and games.

Rought=ly speaking the difference beween these 3 ways of viewing human relationship around motherb earth is

Framework is issued by an oficial organsation. It basically decalares from now on we will use a specified list of themes in the rules we make and in our interactions with professions and other offcial organsaitions. The main framework this bookn looks at was issued by the United Nations in 2017. It has 17 themes which it calls Sustainbility Development Gpoals. When declared in 2015, the UN asked nations and so places and peoples to Unite around applying these themes. A deadline of 2030 was set for all of our 8 billion lives to graviate around so as to maximise our species chaces of survival. The UN had been formed in 1945, when world war 2 and nuclear bombs made preventing extinction its worldiwde and local purpose. So if any formal institution can mediate extinction, we should all seek to either speak sdgs or demand those we elect to repersnt us do so. There are a lot of questions about frameworks - noy least  whether they are updataeable in a fast changing world. For the moment note we can say the same thing about languages or faith systes we may use to discover or apply meaning to how our lives and families and places develop

A map serves everyone who uses it. When connected to a framweork its actionaility is integral. It is the mapwe the peoples are going to apply both to our behaviours and how we think and learn. We cam think of a map as the simplest test of whetehr a system works. Tahe a large city with an underground. The map depends on wheter in real time its gets its users from a to b safely. It is interconnecetd with real life mapping above ground. But if you have seen the first ever maps of undergroiund in London, they have a miraculous quality. Eben though London has chnaged completly in 170 tears and hundres of more stations and multiple lines have been added the most central map is little changed. Its about 8 foot long by one foot high so that it can be dispayed typically above 3 seats in a carraige. Geogpraphically outside its very approximate; in side the system it keeps you making alkl theoptimal connectuons real time

Games in the sense this book composes are ways educatirsm stuenst and all of us can innocvte both our minds development and potentailly valuable ways to interact with framworks and maps. They may have prizes so as to celebrate human advancement during a particular time period - that could be a school year or a subdeadline of a framework. Thye may also be the mosyt effective viral way of connecting innovation heroines and heroes we all need when faced with such cr=ritical chalenges as moving beyond extinction

This book mainly intru=oduecs these frameworks and maps and games

Framework UN SDGs

Map 9 interconnecting routes to move the Un into the middle of the digital world determing 21st C generations' possibilities. IF UN2 roadmapping is successful there are related oportuntioes for gov2.0 of every nation, indeed every place goverenment. Seee eg the UN rankings of gov2.0 at level of nations

A users map of 8 communicatiosn ears the wprld has gone through from the old world discovering the new world to the web3 we live in by 2030 This map is a way of looking at future histiry which connectes the great innovation chalenge of going digotal as the mid 20th c Goats of maps saw human possibilities for develoment. Key qiestion wht goods will peopels unite around if accessing 100 times more tech every decade. While it is reasonable to ask whether this map is optimal for its interactions with the UN's official frame and map, its the nearest way we can see to how hostory shapes futures in ways thay Scots have been questioing since the middle of teh 18th centiry when Adam Smith wrote 2 extrordinary daries- the last attempt to describe marjets humans tradedd through before engines, and the first 16 yera view of how engines could chnage plaves and peopels and links between new and old worlds.

The following games:

In this book we are tlaking about learing games where the pakyers themselve innovate the rules to satay educatuionally ahead in designing the future. Of course this is artisticakly and cratively different from egs ports where a gials are defined by training you body or teams of bodies to score within an identivcally structured environemnet wherever the gae is played. Ironically the 2nd tele gae which defined human advancement form the birth of the UN has turned these soectair games into ways people can become world famous overnight. We make the plea that the younger falf of the world  (and everyone in education roles )now need as many heroines and heroes the first school year game connecting the UN's sdg frame with every digital change we meta-web through 2020s

World Record JObs creators - a game we have updated since 2008. If over the enxt schoold year a pachk of cards represented players whose alumni are most chnaging future livelihoods- who would your communities or networks most want indluded. Please note this is a game with no perfect answer -by defintion its trying to surve chnage and to help people appreciate dic=vesrely different vus=iosns of whats most urgent where we live.


We also look at an example of how a billion poorest woemn spent the half century from 1970 to 2020 celebrating support by one world class engineer. In effect the 36 cooeprations alumni of fazle Abed use criss cross what we maight call fraeworlks, maps and game design (both theory and practice). Its anbed's 36 cooperations invitaions that my family values as the overall winner of entrepreneurial revolution - the most talked about dialogue mediated during The Econosmist's 3ed century, which started up the gener of 2025 report in 1984 and which was ispred by trying to live up to the hopes of vone neumnnas generation.

p> In 2022 we are celebrating the 7th schools years 22-23 of what the UN now calls UN2 digital roadmapping - with 9 transfomrational lenses. 

4 new innocvation lenses of UN2- these emerged after a 2016 first annual review of the UN sdgs decalred 2015; in spet 2016 in nY ed and tech exerst realises that the gaols had no chance f advancing unless all the tech geneii in geneva completely cooperated with all the policy hy peopel ny; indeed you could argue the siloisation crisis was caused the other way riund; geneva was alaways the digital twin of the UN birth in 1945 - tahts because the ITU had been in switzerland sinec 1965 the birth of tekegrahs as the forst worldwide tele industries- because there is almost no value in eg 2 telephone systes, telecoms industries have alwys need cooeprative innovation whetehr that applied to telebraphs telephone television satellite and mobule telcoms; so this is how global connectivity has been hubbed out of e=switzarland sinee 1865

.4 submaps that UN2 (or all egov . digoital gov2.00 needs to integrate
.Ed's digital Cooperation -whats learnt with youth Ed's digital capacity building., what elders sespecially world's laregst deciosn makers unlearn and learn
.Tec'hs digial connectivity since 1865 .,AIGood -all other good tech - legacy from 1920s onwars of gaits of matsh eg nuemman Einstein - notably comoutation or blended comps and soms 
Please note as in any enegineer's roadmapping substems have clearly defined remits as footnoted; notably within the Un2 specification AIGoog refers to all demonstrably win-win digital advances; the risks'ethics of machine development is grounded in UN's 1945 specification namel- the 2 billion beings of 1945 wanted multilaterals to fulfil 4 interconnecting frives
.incusiin of peiples within a nation - ie the right of all to productuvity whatever sex,age faith, skin color eytc public serants should deliver tryst and safety.,
.human rights withn beynd and at borders (ege refugees - to adbvance the world to zero refugees ending wars and  climate destruction would be 2 necessary maps to progress .,puvlic seravnt are resoksible for public goods and commons this incldes eg the air we breathe and the airwaves we map tech advances through
Antonio Guterres took leadership of Un start 2017, an engineer who had lreviously served refugees across Un form more than a decade and before that led Portugal as prime minsiter; - he supported the development of digital coppartion as mapped above form the imtitial movement educatirs had foudned as digital cooeration; afyter brainstorimg with about 400 governments corprate sna tech-sociaetal ngus a 9th piece CODES added to the raodmap- this reminds us that nature evolves from bottom up - in fact it was einstein who proved masns top down science always eapproxuate as natire is playing more mucro dynamics than man can see let alone emasure- covid should remid us of that - it gad setimated that the universal quantity of covid has a volume less than a can of coca-cola;whetehrcovid ileustares the risks we haumsn take as we hypeconnect in realky crided spaces with all forms of life - whetehr covid was a lab accident as happened in us labs with anthrax 2001 or an ccudent of humans beciming too close crowded to eg bats (still thought to have been where the virus was incuanted by nature)

AI please note academics have a way of making terms narrower and narrower - while AI in 1960 refereed to all tech legacies of goats of matsh and was initially connecting 5 main psaces swtzerland, princeton corrdor to ai lab at mit, princeton corrodor to space and wat ai to dc and ege texas, stanford ai lab, tokyo where first order for silicon chips made to Intel and stanford was so large that gordon mores team invented programemable chios and promised 100 times more adcance in capacity every decade until chips now have switching power of huaan brisns; conversely some acadmics now refer to artificail intel/machine intel as confined to sitautions where ony amcahinescan givern a real time sevrice ebcause soi much behavu=ioral data aniw streaming in that human vrains can keep up with what an ulimited number of specifucally programeen ai can operate

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

3D printing aka additive engineering

Big Data Small by market tech sector Leapfrogging

Nano cf einstein - to innovate science model more micro
