GO TO SOURCES- for peoples students and teachers uniting to prevent extiction

we catalogue events at EconomistDiary.com 

On goals1 to 5 we suggest start with www.abeduni.com or www.economistpoor.com

on sanitation we would probably start at singapore's www.worldtoilet.com which is also the bop hub - we have been publishing good hub guide since 2005 - unfortunately one of early partners the impact hub has not paid back social business loans that were made to it - until it does we recommend not going there - singapore is extremely useful place to have a connected sourec is- perhaps more than any other country its peoples are middle class and up - and understand that by massively advancing sustainability projects of neighbors singapore becomes the world's number i trading hub for good or at least sdgs -it is able to do this as it has a large enough number of tech wizards who actually go into government- there would be an interesting question as to wjetjer the uae might one day emulate sinagpore - 3 reasons why thsi may be long way off- womens culture is not equal in uae though some of its smartest people are women taking on lead positions; the region is having to transition from oil riches to the future; there remains a nightmare of conflicting and failed nations which will not mainly caused by the uae make its situation different from singapore that founded asean as a club of nations that historically promised peace to each other; admittedly what is happening in myanmar is becoming a test of asean leadership

as soon as we think climate we cant divorce progress from geopolitics - thats why the last para was long

Is it possible for media or universities to be designed to end poverty?

 Our Definition of Ending Poverty - a world designed so that each next girl or boy born has a good chance at life- in turn this means every community is designed to sustain this goal

History distributed life opportunities very unevenly geographically- even as President Kennedy declared the 1960s goal of racing to the moon - the majority of peoples lived in rural areas without access to electricity and with life expectancies over 20 years below 

Once you know that it should be no surprise that the entrepreneurship's number 1 university partnership of last mile health is closely related to partnering universities in ending poverty; ...

The main ways a billion village women in Asia ended poverty were through microfranchises :

replicating last mile rice production where knowledge linked ti alumni of borlaug increases village productivity several fold

designing last mile health services in bangladesh over 100000 village others made positive cashflow by doordashing 10 non prescription medical items; each mother had a route of 300 homes to visit weekly; over time she because the most trusted person for medical news such as when to get vaccinated

It wasnt until 1996 solar and mobile partners came to villages that village networking could be anything other than person to person; after that both internet and university could be designed to both connect partners COLLAB platforms and both microfranchise specifications and  deeper research - see these 36 collaborations which have turned brac into both the largest ngo partnership and the number 1 universities of 1 early childhood play, 2 last mile medicine, 3 ultra poor financials services...download one page guide

Between founding in 1843 to 1990 The London Economist overarching editorial purpose was mediating end of poverty.Its sub-editor Norman Macrae 1947-1988 was also biographer of John Von Neumann and advanced the logic of The Economist December 1976 that designing every community as a thriving place to ne born into would need bottom-up transformation in which biggest corporates and governments were likely to pose the greatest compound risks to the 21st C celebrating the first sustainability generation

why are partners in university of early childhood playschools huge jobs opportunity of sustainability generation

 formats for eg kids 3 to 6 year olds show wide variations in outcomes but the good ones are fairly easy to benchmark now that abed university has 15 yera learning curve

hgoal 1 create a space in which kids and teacher love each other- have safe space; enjoy peer to peer events like circular sing songs
make sure teacher is respected by whole community 

make sure tehre is a fullstructural program - playbooks which are understood for their learning content (eg montessori is about 90 yeras int this)

thetre are also some special and some magic additions

specials if some or all kids are under huge stress (eg refugees) then there is now a lot of transferable knowhow on why this is the urgent stage to inetrvene and help reset child's school expereince

magic we now know that if for example children are still having readinfg difficulty - there is a 30 hour intervention (90 days of 20 minute ie abou one term to resolve this )- no child should leave at age 6 illiterate; this also means chhildren start with much more equality (good for everyone) at primary school

-there are huge adcanatge to community parents teachers as well as kids if best way of playschool is applied

=========================================
poart 2 over last 14 yera we have received mire and more reports all of the world that half of kids are not going to find jobs unless they havenew abilities - eg enetrepreneurial and financial literacy wjasts jhappened is that classrook schools are gerareed t age of big employers that icreasingly doesnt exist; class room schools are not geared to amximsing apprenticeshops or community engagement even though these are where 21st c jobs are increasigly found

most skils now need esxpereintial practice- while we know a mistcian needs her own eperientual learning, its just as true of any use of technology or any perfor,ace in a service economy

by focusing the whole world on the emnw opportunity of early childhood we can resent relationships between school systems communite9s etachers kids and make sure that where needed all ages of schooling are redesigned

if you look at educational chpaters in 1984's 2025 report you will see much more exploration on why rechnology required chnage to schools; eleders have left it late not continuous belnding real and digital until covid came along- nows the time to make sure we seriously help everyone redesign including making sure teachers have time to relearn

if you look at antonio gutteres proposal to hold youth futuers summit in 2023 - the advantage will go to places that take the urgent opportunity to join in designing co-creative schooling processes which are simly at teh heart of playschool

chrismacrae.com and fazleabed.com

what would humanity miss if XXX did not exist? I published this new economics/valuation genre "Chartering"  with The Economist Intel Unit while working at the globalisation consultancy of one of the big 5 accountants 1995. Of all the leaders purposes journalists and researchers have chartered in last quarter of century, I value that of Fazle Abed most. 

As discussed here, Fazle's purpose devoted 5 decades 1970s through 010s -  helping a billion poorest women map up to 30 collaboration networks resolving life critical challenges .

 If lives are falling apart in your community I can try and help you search which 4 of 30 abed networks you need. At its simplest communities need hi-trust actionable advice/societal action networking on health, education, finance, engineering. They need this advice to have intergenerational consistency for at least 25 years. That's HERSTORY now evidenced by a billion village women!.

FUTURE Now: if my friends maths models since 1984 are correct -we somehow need to apply tech to deep community data everywhere that children are born and co-create first sustainability generation by 2030.

chris macrae short bio- the future of university became an amateur passion after my first job at uk national dev project computer assisted learning university of leeds; i never earned more than a masters in statistics from cambridge's' DAMTP 1973; from 1976 i helped the worlds biggest western companies collect data needed for innovation but from 1990 i became more interested in unique purpose of leaders- co-research with my father (The Economist's Norman Macrae) on 2 books including biography of john von neumann has made our main scientific hypothesis since 1984 that the human race's extinction battle with nature must be collaboratively resolved in 2020s - the most exciting time to be alive and celebrate fellow human beings 

>related knowhow -at normanmacrae.net 15 years of survey on Asia rising 1962-1977 including 2 new economic models rural keynesianism and japan/korea/taiwans CAPITAL coastal belt roadsters redesigning value chains of engineers as borderless sme networks and supercity infrastructures; 60 years of tech entrepreneurial revolution inspired by being biographer of what von neumann expected 100 times "moore" tech would be used to unite humans by 2020s please rsvp chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk Glasgow & Washington DC


i value transparency of family trees a lot - no need to read remainder of this post unless you love swapping family trees - i am at linkedin UNWOMENS -we offer economist co-blogs on 30 purposes from UN to Green to Health to Black to AI to future to Japan to ,,,

 welcome to my (friends & family) networks on yuth-centric learning on human nature worldwide- as diaspora scots i can trace some of my family's biggest concerns back to 1843- at that time my many times great grandfather was the isle of arran's missionary-  an island  which is today 40 minutes ferry ride from mainland scotland, and another 40 mins train ride from glasgow - see economistdiary.com ecop26.com xglasgow.com sdgscotland.com

the island probably consisted of 1000 servants 1 priest 1 lord's family; 20000 sheep- like the rest of scotland capitalists from london were ordering scottish lords- you make more money quarterly by raising sheep- thin the scottish people- my family's solution on sundays debate in one large village circle which family wanted to emigrate next and send a message to the lord that he could thin another 5 people if he paid their shipping usually to usa - this happened all over scotland until 80% of scots live worldwide

down in london, my hero london-scot james wilson thought empire thinning of people was just one of many human wrongs of white empire alongside slavetrading, genocide, colonising, and controling agricultural markets price so that neighbors such as the irish starved; he started a newspaper, the economist in 1843 as a weekly gossip letter he circulated in londons royal societies

at that time quuen victoria with albert was still young in heart and strong in mind- she liked the idea of reigning over commonwealth instead of slavemaking

so she gave james a bank licence- charter bank- to go develop financial services by and for the peoples of india out of the then capital calcutta - there in 1860 james died of diarrhea within 9 months of landing -it was to take 83 and 120 years before my family's intelligence directly converged with james wilson legacy

lets skip trough my family tree to my father norman macrae after just mentioning that my mothers farher was a 4th generation scot in bombay who had mainly been pharmacists (landmark: kemps corner) but sir ken qualified as a barrister about 20 years after gandhi but found humself as britains chief justice mediating gandhi for 25 years before ken's last job writing up all india's independence- he had been told to assume all india was one nation not the partition into unequal thirds it became; at around the same time gradad was typing up independence dad norman macrae was spending his last days a a teen navigating planes in bomber command stationed in burma; from burma you can look west across bay of bengal to india including kamala harris maternal homeland chennai and central asia, or fly south to singapore and asean , or look to your north to china and where the then enemy japan were ruling the skies

thanks to americans dad and so i existed- after being in keynes last class dad got a job at the economist where he was well positioned to take up james wilsons baton; within 15 years dad concluded japan had transformed in the most joyful way- it was developing around 2 new economic models one rural, one supercity which all asia could win-win trade with - thats over 60% of humans most of whom had never seen electricity let alone win-win trading maps for centuries due to colonisation mainly by london- in 1962 president kennedy within a week of dads publication consider japan was cheering on this new future sustaining everyone -kennedy started declaring american interdence as the future of von neumann's legacy-  but within a year both kennedy and medgar evers were assassinated- and quite frankly i cant really understand america's asian policy ever since- fine that not my business- but it most certainly was the business of anyone supporting billion womens empowerment around fazle abed;

... in the 1950s the teenage fazle abed travelled to glasgow to study naval engineering; this was about 65 years after gandhi had gone from indua's north west coast to london to study to be a barrister; fazle abed travelled from what had been india's far north east (recolonised as east pakistan his homeland was to regain independence as bangladesh 1971) : abed graduated from glasgow, went to london , mastered charter accountancy and by the early 1960s he had landed a job at royal dutch shell oil corporation; and by 1970 was his home regions ceo for shell; there a million people died all around him in a cyclone; this changed his life: for half a century he became a collaborative networker of villagers ending poverty -he redesigned disaster relief to be bottom up and aid around microfranchising women village entrepreneurs; - he was thus bringing what james wilson had left off 110 years earlier but in abeds case his bank blocked from serving calcutta reached out to provide the rural keynesianism investmemts and the village microfranchise solutions that up to a billion village mothers used bth to build bangladesh and rural china; how that was done can be learnt or co-created at www.abedmooc.com through 2020s if we want all our children to be the sustainability generation
