Soon after Fazle Aded Died Dec 2019 Yunus posted this - as now the last vilage diarist of women empowerment

Since 2007 we have sampled 2000 yunus social busiens book; 10000 graduate journalist dvds made the week the Nober committee opened Yunus museum summer 2008 a slighly nelated 68th birthf=day party we have helped host his 69th birthday party wished in Dhaka bring eg the BBC's number 2 nature coorespondent paul rose, at the time the british embassy's number 1 education connectir dominic register, the ceo of brac bank and the corporate brand designedr of brac as well as numver 2 filmaker from Paris pof "Yunus Movie" and various London friends who had attended be 2008 last public birthday party of my dad The Economist's Norman Macrae with Yunus as chief guest. Fatrher's last article was on Yunus on his recognition taht subprime crisis might put v=back millennails a decade from theur aim to be first sd generation and was also the main concern of The Economist Boiardrro,'sremebrance party to dad  entrepreneurialrevolution.avi

Ij asembling we want to index the top 10 lessons from Yunus that you cannot necessairy learn from studying by itself


you need to go to abed first to understand how village women 1970s on were empowered to build last mile health services that ultimately raised life expectancy by 20 yeras reducing infant and maternal deaths close to worldwide norms; also to understand how education systems were designed by and with vilage mothers- in fact both abed and yunus celebrate action learning methods which they cite (Brazilian Francsican) Paulo Freire pedagogy of oppressed as founder of. Both abed and yunus transformed women from being histirically regarded as a week underclas into doing majority of vuilage/community development and becasue this directly saved the lives of children male respect for women in Bnagaldehs is higher than any other muslim nation of comparative wealth- it is higly likely with both abed and yunus that bangaldesh would be as dangerous to itself and regional neighbors as sady eg Afghanisatan is today; moreover Bangladesh has had to show more resielince to the refugee crisis caused by Myanmar 

as stated in the introduction to this web my father in 2008 saw 2 hugeky imporerant topics yunus amplified round the woprld- how will a superport infrastructure come to the region

will subprime destroy millennials futures in 2010s; on both of these issues he was tirless in us debates - whilst even obam's admoinsytration did not directly respond Yunus had us connections since his fulbright scholarship with van b=der bilt 1966- he had lobbied dc during 1971's war od independence; in comparison abed's unique relationships were with the 3 main empires to have imacted asia'[s b=history britain where he studied at glasgow and then on=btained hu=is job at roral durch shell; netwirherlands where he finally located his global office; Japan 

7 Yunus most unique contribution to what we can call aid 2.0 before (monile/solar0 was builiding vilage models with 60by 60 eie 3600mothers; niftier than abeds 15000 vilage models ; in other words while abed's foundations were sustaining meta-vilages of 100000 people at a time - yunus tag=rgeted 20000 vu=ilage mothers- approximately a banking team of 6 were expected to visit each of the 60 gtameen centres weekly; in general yunus bankers wer much younger than abe'd vilage empowerment hubs; 

fsoon after the grameen bank ordinance in 1983 yunsu initayed grameen dialogue with the help initially of american journalists as bootcamps for perhaps 20 u=international visitirs to learn- it was these dialgues that made him worldwide more famous than abed to theextent that mucrocreditssummit hosted annualy and initially lanucnhed by queen sofial and the clintons made yunus the number 1 celebruty of banking for the poor- however in spite of all the advocacy and estanblishing grameen trust international traijing, graneenb foundation as fudn alex counts started raising in usa amd relationships wuth sam daley harris and vidat jorgenssens as 2 americans critical to Yunus in America- it is not clear today which microcredit models survived without being taken over by parties that have ultimately diluted yunus visiosn; in this regard the abed moeel remains Bamgladesh's ultimate change to finacial service market designs

ftom approcimatelty 1996 both yunus and abed race to design leapfrog partnershisp by celebraing mobuile phone and solars potential trabsformation to vilage life; theiur intital diocuses are different- yunus aims to empower vilage telephne girls- with one franchsie per cenetre of 60 she hires her phone to rest of teh centre and becaosme  the centres quasi mucro yellow pages of whi to connect; abed was fra more concerned in making first use of digital to enjsuringa bout 20 national value chains remained eladers for the poor and not losing to other players in the sectir;-ultyimately gramen phone became bangaldesh's bigegst comapny but only third owned on behalf of grameen banks vailagers and brac beceomae the largesyt noigo partnership in the world; 

at yunus 70th birthday wush party hosted with smnurgi=hiba sxholars in Glasgow we launnced the jouyrnal of socail bueibess around yunsu and cemented the origins of the c=virtually free nurse training odel of grameen- both are lasting legacies with the bangladesh diaspora in scotland launching a second hournal of new economisc and preparing to celebrate in june 2023 the connections between bangaldesh women empowerment, all asia billion girls empowermemt, the economist end poverty and tech diaries 1843-1993 all c-sharing 265 smithian moral sentimenst summist and what we value as bangladesh's education models (microeducation summit)

in america yunus daughter has co-created a leading model of how young musician and theatrical arts can support each other and a city's youtth engagement while designing this to be a resilient legacy of yunus

since losing his bank in 2010 yunus has built the yunuscentre model- quite how this meiates hos legacy  in abb=ddition to monica netiwrksis still to be seen

If i understand john is in oregon - one of 7 states my family in small way helped yunus challenge to state wide college student competitions -open source solutions needed 2009-2013 to go sustainably beyond subprime 
 paul is in brighton area - he mentions jack martin leith who was first host of a london open space I attended 2000; i know how 2000-2006  after 9/11 developed open space in London and south england , hubs , be the change- personally 2005 was a worst year for me my main open space associate colin morley was killed in 7/7; dads cancer was announced termina; my 8 yaer old daughter was being bullied in us school, and attending make poverty hostory's maion foundation ,eetings in london withh bbc red nose they were talking fund raising not solutions educatirs needed to distribute; and there was no undesranding of web 2 (mobile satabase race)
Is this enough to see wht metaverse designers , open space faciltatirs and those helpoing gureres chnage government need each other
Do we have a map of regional oipen space faciliraotrs who might want to deepen this discussion
cheers chris
 I was lucky that one person connecetd me with bangladesh which I had never been to. It turned out vilage women builth that nation byparticpating weekly in open space circles. This began eoiund 15000 vilage homes rebuilt after war had faletened them. There were 3 main types of vialfe circles - food, health/sanitaion, crafts and eg social forestry to earn trade with city. The purpose to help illiterate vilage mothers design small busienss micrfranchise in these 3 applicatiuon circles geared to end tens of mothers dying weekly of sravation and scores of infants dying of dehtdartion. I mention this because the bbc as world's number 1 public braidacster did endless harm by descriging this system wrongly - I monitired that endles harm from 2007. I dont like facebook but I am redesigning an economics grioup i posted in 2008 but forgota bout for 15 yeras; Glasgow feeinds & my my main blog on scottosh economics moral semntiments is
maybe I am wrong but at 71,  i see collision of metaverse and open space as last best chance- of course its very contextually geographbically and by whar issue under 30s half of wporld face first to resov]=lve comapred with ,ess my generation has spun
I am just a mathematicains so I love graet simple faciliation but dont do it muself though as marhet researcher and caluer of leadeship purspoe its ceteinaly in my opinion searching toolbag
I guess I am confused - relatively few open spaces seem, to masively craetre move,mensts which immediately lead to emplyment for thios who have particpp;ated- whn i have tried to ask harrison about this - i undersyand examples of follow through success include
eg when atalantolym[ics was 6 montsh be]hind schedule so needed os solutions
ironically I ddont believe hackathos etc during era of web1,2 have really used open space- often the hakathon has a bif digital sponsor
so if I am right its al to play fpor - how do we get best of open space , web 3 and live.lihood education

 m dad's case entrepreneurial revolution 1976 - need to change constitution and finance as for sme networks to save all community building futures; as well as livelihood development of half of world east of iran 1977  Two Billion People: A Survey of Asia
death of disance telecommuting; He saw a Jeffersonian future, in which, thanks to 
dad had survived being teen navogatitr allied bo,ber sommand burma; so had google maps in his gead before any20th c media person and met von neu,ann in peinceton who asked whether econos,its were interested in teh scoop - what goods could peoples first unite wherever they wer privileged to apply 100 times more etach [er decade -or in harroson case ever deeper real time globasl villages
i found open space in Uk just before 9/11 with oneof same faciliatrors as paul ie jack marting leith; my wife and daughetr had already moved to maryalnd where I found harrison was a neigbor o f ikne from abour 2006
I have only hade visit to oregon- with muhammad yusnu chalenging the states colege stidents to collaboiration entreporeneurship
Is it just 3 of us or do you think otehrs are interested? based in dc i really see new york as only affoedable space so for me its usefil that has proven how to design meta-conference and camous spaces and applies open space as part of its mix; amd I am trying tp connect all new york friends through the omnly part pf teh Un taht I matehmatically uinderstand gov2.0 by accident since 2016 have ben at main meeting of this in ny and geeva and at zooms
but where else do you sugest we linkin - is there a way to coperate; anything else I should try & clariyy??

may need to be short and long version of this question if its to help with millennials being first sustainability generation
Shortish Version 
Over least 12 months have talked to people designing metaverse to maximise millennials changing education and connect positive emotional intel some of call womens kindness (one ny billionaire is launching her next leap on kindness on valentines day) with the help of my favorite recording studio in NY
NY first became my fav place in USA when 9 brave educators (eg world bank jim kim) in 2016 told the UN hq that the sdgs were unteachable without change to every way learning time is spent - that has become Before this the UN had nothing for me coming from 4 generations of diaspora scots who prefer not to spend life's time on top down system design 
another asian new yorker Home | k20 Educators is in my searches a mile ahead in designing virtual spaces so youth don't need to be tied to costs (and silos) of physical conference centres or lectures driven by costly certificates -
 she has designed in about 4 best of meta-tools - eg augmented reality, game designs, blockchain to own what fashion or solutions you create or open source; 
AND open space
so short question who might want to chat with her (of course you are welcome to contact her direct) but my new york friends are trying to linkin a calendar of stuff through 2023 where we aim to help communities take back the UN (or at least youth scaling sdg solutions across communities)
so as one example march 21 to 25 has first water-sanitation-habitat summit at hq for 20 yeras and i know jack sim from singapore who is number1 in telling stories on value of toilets; jack's own story includes selling his 40 companies in 1999 and spending the last 23 years or cooperation solutions BOP Hub 
most of our new york meta- diary links in something asians are doing because they have for many reasons not seen the web as dominated by advertising;
