isabella@unacknowledgedgiant.com: Can you help girls co-create sustainability's 3 billion new jobs: renew every community, renew planet, humanise exponential impacts of 1000 times more commnstech than 1946 ? Most exciting times to be alive : Over next decade (3 generations – half of world being girls & boys under 30, their parents and grandparents) will determine whether human race is sustainable.
Do you see why education must change way beyond 300 hundred old classrooms to empower girls to explore far more than history can examine? NB by 1969 about 12 times more comstech had led a small network of men to race to the moon while almost half of girls were too poor to have access to electricity grids let alone any progress of 250 years of Industrial Revolution. Inspired by miraculous developments in China and Bangladesh, GirlsBeltRoad invites every community to celebrate going beyond win-lose era of colonisation and carbonisation. Diarise sustainability's urgent search for world record jobs creators; empower girls to lift up half the sky by transforming orbits of education and economies back to celebrating sutsainability of everyone. Recommendation listen to why China's richjest technologist values LoveQ then dare to play the WRJC game of fives with everyone you network with. Girls stories of goodwill's 7 social wonders in on : bankers, food workers, health servants, educators, hi-trust media designers, disaster relief connectors, public service.

job creation man of the year - sir fazle abed - runners up xi jinping and jack ma

Of course all three need each other now that Xi Jinping and Jack Ma have announced the greatest 15 year marrathon for sustainability out of Hangzhou China G20 2016

still 2016 saw the 80th birthday of womens greatest living hero sir fazle abed- and whilst also being the greatest living designer of school systems,

 ironically his knowhow isnt translated in western hemispheres yet -at least not in a way that it needs to be appd's everywhere that youth's race to linkin jobs and sustainability goals happens on mother earth

......
its worth going back to 1972 when bangladesh was one year old - the poorest nation oin earth- so poor that while top down government tried to unite citiznes- it had no resoources to reach vilagers let alone the poorest female vilagers - so how did the miracle of empowering the world's porest womne to buiuld a nation really work

it becgan with at least 4 paralel pursuits at grassroots leveles:
the most trusted banking ever seen
the most relevant jobs related training
building a health system from next to nothing
and redesigning every market vilagers could reach so that smallest poorest hard working female entrprises had market access

always the secret was experiment with a small franchsie solution - once it was designed efficiently and effectively for girls empowermnt - expand big
so what started brac's helath service security in the vilages was realising that a quarter of all infant lives cpould be saved if illiterte vilage motrhers were taught how to perform oral rehydration - the best value life saving cure the worlld has ever seen consusts og giving an infant with diarrhea boiled water mixed with suitable proportions oif sugars and salts- when the world of aid saw that brac could scake such a service acros tens of thousands of vilages in spite of no edlectricity or other forms of communication otyher than person to person grassroots networking - brac became the place to find hundereds of microfranchsies - each creating livelihoods for woemn and deleivering life chnaging community swrvoices

in the process brac solved the crisis of entre[prenurial revolution - namley that none of the west big 4 organsiaational constitutions had a bats chnace in hell of linking together the sustaoinability solutiins the first net generations of teh 21st c would need in such a way that the very poorest or those in most life criotical need were not only served but then learnt to serve others.

congratulations Bkash

..
This year www.bkash.com of the end poverty network BRAC
 became the developing world's largest cashless bank overtaking
Mpesa. The low transactional costs of cashless banking are one
 of the greatest leapfrog transformations yet seen through
Industrial Revolution 1 to 4.

 This is quite an excellent development for Bangladesh
given bkash was only born in 2012. Its worth pointing out
exactly how destructive to the future of youth the opposite
sort of bad banking systems is. The slide from an open source
 preparing for India's civil service shows the new sort of
financial literacy that one would hope all job creating teachers
 possess

has the formal university become the least collaborative possible host for student exchanges needed between english and chinese speaking under 30s http://economistchina.net

there are now many ways i would far rather send and daughter or son of mine on 4 month exchanges

for example why not start with one of the 5 world class education summits (replayed and open space students to connect with the projects emerging from these summits)- 2 of these summits have already provided detailed briefings on why continuing education as usual will lead to up to all youth being out of sustainable by 2030

ir why not take a leaf out of partners in health book and swarm students of both languages to a context where their professions most urgent help is needed

or why not work out how to cross-fertlise hubs and blockchain between 2 sister cities- map the hubs and blockchains linked in by each city and help the students from both languages tour live action networking teams

why not replay the latest g20 invitations for under 30s to collaborate around sustainability goals and connect your student exchange with the next g20 preparation - ie germany 2017 or argentina 2018 or india 2019 http://amychina.net

==================================================
here are some global youth in development deadlines and curricula that most concern my family and global under 30s  friends

18 september gordon brown and 30 national commissioners led by China's Jack Ma launch at UN- what could education be if it wholly valued youths livelihoods and borderless positive opportunities of  www   

2 - a very small group of young chinese and africa-american ladies have been informally checking with educators over the last year so at minimum we hope to be able to host some youth cafes out of new york either side of the UN's launch but we are looking for how to brief youth to hub similar collaboration cafes in other cities- the chinese have been asked by sir fazle abed of brac to keep him in the reporting loop; we have a similar request emerging from women leaders of financial centers and project everyone's sustainability goals  around the world

3 we are developing a social incubation hub network targeted at innovations worth a billion dollars if they help girls build local communities around the world but where the inventor doesnt mainly want most of that in monetary extraction- and instead wants to be at mobile connected epicentres of amplifying social good and related livelihoods; its also our process that such innovations need to be marketed through open education modalities such as peer to peer learning,  not through advertising  ABC  google/bing/baidu

4 our dubai summit www.gycommunity.com  run by youth but banked by nations leaders is due to happen 29 november

5 our elder associates in dc are continuing to extend their cable tv network around the world focusing in green jobenomics and ways of transforming market sectors so that community-supported and family SMEs can thrive- unlike the thing extracting economy, we determine value round  postindustriual growth of places or nations can only be (developing/mas flourishing) people centric- and economists who argues the opposite is not in line with adam smith or any work my family has ever tried to mediate including father (keynes last student)  at The Economist and grandfather with gandhi in mumbai for 25 years before writing up legalese of india's independence

6 there are some particularly urgent health and  baltimore and jim kim vision issues but these are very specific to research on the world record book of job creation which may be too controversial for some -eg due to politics, america is falling down the league of job creators as far as our worldwide youth panel can see

many thanks for your consideration
