|MOST EXCITING IDEA UNITING 100 UNIVERSITIES STUDENT UNIONS TO SUSTAIN HUMANS MACHINES & MOTHER NATURE Fortunately the worlds great educator sir fazle abed was already making 100 open universities of sustainable his 5th and final decade long mega-project in an extraordinary attempt to marry the women economics maps of ending povert with expanding middle clases with leapfrog tech partnerships that most empower worldwide youth to advance humanity.In 1984 co-authors of The 2025 Report included The Economist's Deputy Editor Norman Macrae. Our purpose to explore the Keynesian logic of why millennials with a trillion times moore tech than the moonshot generation - and urgently needing to be the first sustainability generation - would need a transformation in which education not economics is valued by all as the communal system which advances humanity.In the intervening 37 years, our friends have seen this view become exponentially more urgent - with covid just the most recent signal that humans have not yet applied remarkable technology leaps by von neumann and others in a way that values all lives matter. We do not see the UN's 2020s sdgs decade as just another media game but humanity's last call. Who's purposes with education give us hope in the 2020s of living up to neumanns (to 1957) and kennedy's (to 1963) valuation of youth. Examples:sir fazle abed to 2019 --- continuing fei-fei li in association with economistdiary.com we aim to profile the events to link in your millennials be that by zoom or for real:eg yidan dec 2021|

adding to the Q&A 3 louise richardson is arguably more connected than any european with last best chance of youth futures 2021 - supporting 360 degree edu research, mixing irish and scottish worldwide networks even more than irish biden alumni can in glasgow, valuing womens empowerment, potentially helping develop turing scholars now brexit has thrown uk scholars out of erasmus; i had problems with platforms sound and there was almost nothing developed in the networking space; its a pity the doctorate day has been hard to access globally; i wish each yidan event would include 5 minute summary on what the new event added to abed's 6 by 6 networks through which education -not economics- multiplies practices of all of sdgs1-5 as well as mapping back tech for all sdgs- abed's final education-legacy framework through 2010s 100 universities sharing their educational alumni and solutions offers simple way to massively open online cooperation so youth can actively be first sdg generation and humanise AI; the unesco keynote was the only disappointment - there are 30 YEAR lessons from mit media lab 100$ laptop but opposite to his; its very important that oxford, mit and chinese diaspora leap beyond the broken silos designed into empire education; Unesco hosted a great ai-edu summit in 2020 -pity that viwpoint excluded; regarding celebrating edu abed's main lesson- education is not a linear process; poorest women are abused most by those who perpetuate system of child's chance to develop brain is ended once they fail one standard examination email@example.com thanks to charles luminaries and his youth team in hong kong - for all the hope they share

generations of my family know quite a lot about the similarities/differences of oxbridge (ie oxfird and cambridge) and quite a little about camford (eg boston's cambridge and stanfords silicon valley) -- of course like any explorer i would lovce to hear from you if you can guide me to sighting my brain has previously been oblivious too- while i have always been happier questioning than being examined on things (with the exception of pure maths systems maps) i realise i am an extremly blind person in the sense that i only really speak english and html and a few coding languages which are now almost extinct like fortran...
both oxford and cabridge were very late in offering business schools and to this day dont really practce engineering the way smith/watt started in glasgow 1760s; in fact adam smith compared oxford campus with glasgow- a hopeless place - doesnt value youth experiential learning, designed/finamced for the conveience of professors- ironically while both oxford and camridge claim to be haves for pure science exploration; oxford is connected by the river thames to the city of london and so big finance and big politics, and these days by motorways to centre and north of england- while cambridge's claim to travellers fame was once that you could walk all the way to london on land owned by the royal family and indeed continue your pilgrimage to the church of england's high synod at ely
these days oxford is an epicentre of vaccine pharma because britain's pharma and chemical industries alway located themselves west and north of london whereas the dna of life was open sourced out of cambridge which tended to be where royal socuety od medicine leaders who valued the nhs more than money making congregated
oxford and camridge share two things i loved during the 7 or so years i visited them- union debates where two sides can goto devating war with eaxh ther but afterwards go share a pint- unlike usa students are free to dring from age of 18 which also explanis why college feasts get boozey and the best cellars outside france are in oxbridge colleges- and then there is student-led theatre at least in cambridge where keynes legacy is the arts theatre whih became the footlights space where the pompous bbc was torn to shreds by the likes of moty python ., not the nine oclock news, rowan atkinson and pretty well any culture that has a sense of humor opposite to parliamentary parties
oxbridge also more or less monoplses all schhols curricula, and hiw youth are examined - idf not by being the only certification board then by being the one all teachers are instructed to see as the gold standard
this has particular difficulties on missing curricula likr history og how london colonised so much ofhumanity that world wars became the consequenxe of the first century and a hlaf of man and macines- a consequence which included how the two thirrd of humans living on the continemnt of asia were all but left out of human development until a transformed japan started to help asia rise once freed to do so by ameeicas constructive interventions in japan and south korea of the 1950s;
there is a problem that most of the borser conflicts across asia were drwan in stone by the whire royal empires of britannia, netherlands which sucke in japan from the late 19th c - so while these 3 royal families networks could know much more about conflict resolution acrooss asia from 1950s on, it has been american who have made the miltary decisions which since the death of jfk have not been culturally explicable and probaly driven by 1 owning as much cheap dirty energy trade as possible and playing a game alway 100 times behind von neumanns technolgy against wherever russia next sponsored dictators; strangely americans have never really understook greater india or greater china where half of humans develop lives; they have for example often tarred china with the same communist brush as the evil stalin even though china leapt free of all beief in russia from 1968 if not earlier- interali the cultural revolution was abouth the chinese people discovering the cost of mao's purchase of nuclear tech from russia starved up to 10 of chinese in 1960s; once you understand the chinese collective mindset has been to use engineering and village agriculture to escape all such russian controls, banning your students from studing curriculum of how a billion chiese people led by womens community building end poverty is a stupid or even evil thing for curriculum controlers to do

you have time for a quick zoom on astra zeneca- modi has announced that he's betting india's health on distributing zeneca; it was bracs sir fazle abed who back in the 1980s united with james grant of unicef to do bottom up immunization- not sure who has that knowledge any longer; back in 2005 it was supposed to be in 3 americans minds - jim kim bill gates, george soros friends at columbia health/mailman college; none of the 3 seem to be connected any longer now sir fazle has gone; but maybe sunita knows if there any indians at world bank who can help relink this or geeta may know if london colleges know who else is helping astra zeneca in other countries.. i am putting some notes on this at www.economisthealth.com and www.astra.place

Over 5 decades serving the new nation of bangladesh from 1972 solutions innovated by all the truest friends of fazle largest ngo coalition gravitated by biggest population challenge of all - how poorest women develop places to end poverty. Sir Fazle was as modest as he was determined- he used to say, the poorest women do all the hard work, my best friends decide there is something they want to do with their life that applies to all of us., as an engineer i simply listen out for a beautiful local solution and pick ones i can find ways of helping villagers scale massively
we are going through all the transcripts of fazle - to collate his advice on university - do you have any firstname.lastname@example.org
70s resilient community change disaster relief to bottom-up to direct cash transfer
sir fazle took on the challenge of building a national service eg health - where none existed in villages ie places without electricity grids or running water- which do you think mattered most when building a health service - health servant leaders or financial wizards?
80s last mile health servants - the first lesson 100000 villages need to share- cataloguing vilage businesses of para health and nutrition- change aid part 2 planting sustainable microfranchise business models wherever village women can energise them

One of the paradoxes of human evolution - at least as the english langiage records it - : we probably started in africa and around the med sea belt road
-plot for example the egyptian, muslim/ottoman, greek and roman empires- and their relationship to the land bridge we now call the middle east- walk south west from the middle east mediterranean from eg bethlehem and you will get to africa; walk north and west and o0nce you have passed through asian turkey you will get to southern europe ncluding
greece and italy
Golden Rule Chronology if we rewind humanity to when the greek empire was strongest it may have evolved religious homage to many olympian gods in direction of golden rule religion
eventually- the romans took over and as far as the western europe is concerned - took over much of europe by foot, provided an alphabet that was 25 letters complete, added the birth of Jesus to golden rule religion -christianity
the roman journest west and north of italy built roads far and wide through the continent -and over to the british isles- after first invading britain in 55 bc, decided under emperor hadrian that scotland was too far to go and built a wall there...this was also the time the empire started to contract-
meanwhile back in the middle east, arabian muslim movement were soon to grow around their own prophet on earth
- if we jump forward to marco polo's or st francis time -something amazing had happened- a pedestrian world trade route stretched all the way from the middle east med sea coastal belt overland to china- a huge relay across inland regional communities (often a full 10 degrees north of asian coastline where it runs close to latitude 20- for the trade to flow overland at the speed of yak neighbors cultures had to adapt to each other without borders-
THE SPICE ROAD
it seems that one reason why europe and middle east worked so hard to trade with the far east was this was the home of spices many of which were regarded as the medicines of their day and wer light enough to act like a win-win currency - the further you distributed it the more it was worth.So there;s teh old world approaching 1500- the east had never been designed around golden rule religions- instead organic consicousness movement united south asia china korea and japan-just like the western end of the silk riad had its bay area so did the easter end; being on these 2 one of these coast lines was probably the greatest place to design win-win trades out of- we know the venetians in particular had regained being the centre of european civilisation
Ironically nearly 8 centuries after Marco Polo's role as mayor of hangzhou, a citizen of this town by te name of jack ma remembered the importance of conccious neighbors in mapping world trade - note how one of the 2 greatest market makers the world has ever seen -see bezos and ma- followed up his branding of oriental ecommerce as alibaba with oriental ai scholars networks called DAMO
but what happened next was mainly north europe discovered royd the workd vogaes- the enw world to the est o0f amnerica, and circukmnavigating afri9ca to reach asia- boats nbeeded to be bigger and arjmed to win this race- while the italians concentrated on teh med sea the big game had chnaged to whomever had teh biggest mercantile force to develop the new world to0 te west and staging posts all along the south asian caostral belt to wherever spices of different soirts grew most
wile tehre were many battoles on teh way te 1% og people who lived in britan proved most efficient - in the early 1600 they added a j to the alphabet whi9ch to this day has 26 charctres - english became thye oredominat language, to the extent that thyere was a world trade monetart6 curreny it was the pound (newton had replaced teh silver standard with the gold standard), spices were wtill teir own currency. the brit sleaped fiwrad in oublishing science and bt 1760 amazingly the british colony of scotkand started upo bot teh futuresof eninbes japes watt and teh future of maoral markets adam smith-that was 170s that was- smith next book passinately demanded that britain see that america was multiplying a far loarger emigrant population on a contental scake hundres of tiems larger than Britannia's island - instead of trying to rule usa why not design win-0win free trades. London did not understand smithsian economics with teh result that america decared independence in 1776 - and for thye next 100 yeras americans focused on developing theor own continet while britain got on with extending beywond indiua to trying to cintrol trade with china and demanding opium be a curency. By 1914 the majoreity of humans who lived on teh asian contientb were traopoed in pverty mainly because britain's colonia rule made the caostal belt the dominant world trade route and one wehere britain extracted what it wanted from eastern countrries. To somne extent other wetser europ empires did likewise. In any event by 1914 1nnd the again in 1939 - the whole model of mercantile colonial was cola[sing . Nations all areound teh world wanted to ruloe temselves. America had twice intervened to save tyhe old world fr5om war. The dollar beceme the workds great trading currency. The nations of ethw orld met at sab frakjciscao 1945- so what happened next is bot the most important geonomic mapping exercise for undersranding tiday's sustainabiloiuty goalo race - and can in iur view be understood by emploring 4 win-win technolgies that emnerged between 1945-1960: on the ground rice secince and other solutions or rural keynsiansim making rural communiteis self sufficients- out of nthe easst's most powerful island japan better eneginnering of deming - and then the 2 hi-tech races into space including satellite communicatiosn nwhich oen day would end teh cosdt of distance as a way og knowledge networking, and computing brainpower whose inventir vin neuman died early becasusde of cancer but whose unprecdent value multipliers were decalred by alumni of gordin moore to multiply 100 times more analytical power every decade from 1965 to 20205 -tahts a trullion tiems moore
with all those technologies would it be possihle to design a world in which each next girl or boy born had a safe happy and productive opportunity for life. Why should that be difficult as long as we shared correct information on helping each others people do what nature gave them the most diversse advantages to do and as long as the new codes we medited found ways to bridge all the old cultures languages faiths...?
normanmacrae.netyou can explore 30 years of surveys aiming to love each others cultures -a swell as children - in The Economist starting in 1962...with the japan rising world epicentre of deming's better qualily engines which as well as more relaible vehicke started up suoer trains 100 tiem more efficient containerv ports, various sorts of machines ofr excavating and building suoercities as well as smart manufactirer of microelectonicsd
