Dear Embassy and pro-youth friends -Could I introduce you to Naila Chowdhury who is now a neighbour of mine and connector of women4empowerment networks and mobile tech purposes after 14 years of loyal service to Yunus technology networks. During my ten visits to Yunus in Dhaka my biggest eye-opener was when she explained how mobile technologists were moving over to Sir Fazle Abed - see eg While Telenor, George Soros, MIT and Dubai technologists had all begun with Yunus in 1996 with naila as first female director of grameen phone; BUT by end 2009 Yunus leadership team had lost all capacity to help biggest partners analyse collaboration threats ahead of time . This year 2014 Naila helped to organise these celebrations of Sir Fazle Abed which are particularly urgent for celebrating collaborations in global health, mobilising womens jobs (spreading nanocredit across Africa-Asia-Americas) and open learning :
***UN first ladies fashion networks- Prize for Sir Fazle Abed 
***World Bank TEDx - BRAC only end poverty ngo included in lineup:
  • Presenters | TEDxWBG
    Brazilian Claudia Costin, Senior Director, Global Practice on Education, World Bank Group ...D'Banj was born as Dapo Daniel Oyebanjo in the Northern city of Zaria, Kaduna -he's now Apple's ambassador for Beats...BRAC USA mobilizes resources for, provides strategic and programs services to, and ... Jim Yong Kim, M.D., Ph.D. is the President of the World Bank Group.

 Naila's friend who coordinates staging end poverty world bank tedx also helps Jim Kim leadership team design open learning campus - ie coursera partners in on-demand topics starting with climate risk, global health and freeing nursing colleges, youth summits monitoring public servants accountability, transparency and collaboration

The next 12 months to end 2015 offer once in a generation opportunities- what open training will worldwide youth be freed to access and peer to peer celebrate?
1 at world bank open learning campus?
2 at MD-Ethiopian-led yazmi - the elearning satellite for 5 billion Africans and asians- at mostofa and my annual elearning debrief  july 2014 with sir fazle was the topic he valued most; last year it was the who's who of open MOOC partnerships but in examining the acronym he said why not C for collaboration

PS Dominic if you are currently based in Jakarta , should I send an email introducing you to the yokoi's founder of akira foundation in Tokyo. It celebrates their father's work and Tokyo's university millennials for health - their father became president of Toyota after building Toyota relationships in Indonesia for quarter of a century. Not everyone knows that Abdul Latif sponsor of many of MIT's end poverty labs is founded on wealth made from Toyota Franchise in Middle East. My experience during Yunus years of living dangerously since 2009 is that the Japanese Embassy in Dhaka that has been tireless in asking both Yunus and Sir Fazle Abed what moral and cross-cultural support (if any) do they feel they need. Equally as father first surveyed in 1962 without japan's partnerships in quality revolution of electronics its not obvious how the Eastern hemisphere and China would have developed to today's state of being integral to millennials' goals and sustainability

survey 1of child centric education

My dream: everyone experiences Harrison Owen OpenSpace After%20the%20Rage.pdf

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
