9 2015 summit now: How to prioritise agenda of millennials? future convergence of microeducation and microcredit summits: how manyhi-trust community banking circles can your real and virtual livelihoods sustain in ending poverty and unemployment? now we have global village platform like kiva zip, puddle, nanocredit, cashless banking , credit student unions celebrating peer to peer financial literacy curricula from age 7 up The Economist's exponential valuationimpact viewpoint from 1984 on why open education's 10 times more or less costly social architectures would determine how empowering it is to be in the first net generation 10 Post Card - Final.pdf Post Card - Final.pdf, Nearly Free Nursing College: note how yunus 2006 (speech) promised himself the freedom of a new beautiful dream when he won the nobel prize- the social business of healthcare for everyone depends on nearly free nursing colleges and nursing literacy curricula from age 7 up; fortunately this converges with motivations of africa's first satellite launcher and sal khan's 2nd app after maths; this is why the fee nursing college may turn out to be the virally most popular of 100 youth and yunus postcards being circulated in between every world pro-youth sustainability summit- related futures debate: 1984 The Economist questions what will happen during millennial generation to nations; whose politicians let basic healthcare become 10 times mor... or communally inaccessible
7 social stockmarkets connected to freeing unseenwealth researchers- in 2001 bush followed by 2003 eu banned unseen wealth research; yunus was a biggest loser as the value of his trust networks got on a moores law doubling up to at least 27 billion dolars but had no legal protection bank in Bangaldesh from random government takeover; social stickmarkets chould code eactly what model/auditing each entry is millennial citizen monitored by; whomever is next milennials biggest dream-maker will be attacked on all sides by millions of MBA clones until more students know of trilliondolaraudit than of MBA 8 which are the other top 10 curricula you would like yunus to nominate a free university collaboration leader of eg 1 regarding curriculum of ending all the low-trust consequences of tv mass media how does this link into his daughters university of stars model - singforhope; eg 2 who is helping yunus map how direct youth worldwide trades can sustain 10 times more health and wealth than when every trade has government or bad banks big brothering over it
3 which 2 value chains do women and youth for empowerment have most leverage over -why not the fashion industry; and the goodwill of the mobile telecom billionnaires?

5 has anyone ever seen inter-generation growth of a place without peacemakers and inequality-busters leading the public service way? if so why does nobel separate economics and peace prizes?  this has become the major worldwide youth dialogue with nobel peace summits - including 2013 Warsaw, 2014 Cape Town, 2015 Atlanta

why do the world's top 10 religions separate their curriculum of service to ending inequality? if the 21st C is to enjoy a social media world, why isnt there enough public broadcast media to message these millennial needs every day in every social action way

2 does your university administration take The Economist's recent majority conclusion to heart- the MBA curriculum damages your nation's futures not just the brightest students; what is the way ahead for valuing the potentially most educated professional 25-40 group the world has ever celebrated: look at which universities make their most valuable professor the most collaborative one who show students how to open source microfranchises of businesses majority owned around a purpose that exponentially accelerates the human lot across inter-generational time periods - not quarterly extraction..; ; choose some contexts to test the most valuable professor on - does she or he know of the green energy- a billion yunus model that can be open sourced to help millennials end the carbon value chain..,

30000 Microfranchsie search to Poverty Museums

which of these 4 types of empowerment network are best for millennials to trust as meta-centres for which types of microfranchises:

the pre-digital commun ity bank

the post-digital community bank

the most trusted mobile telecom owners

the most trusted open educational platforms?

1 future youth-sustaining capitalism- exploring the win-win social business purpose of every trillion dollar market while attending to the top 20 anti-youth vested interest groups that elders accidentally spun during tv's mass dumbing down age

.MILLENNIAL meta-colaboreation worldwide summits and IHUBS 2015-2030now - and promoting the most valuable celebrations ever to have brought down degrees of separation across our human race- to end the unfortunate greenwashing of the top-down millennium goals process that characterised 1997-2015, which 5 world youth summit formats could most empower millennials investment around their own 21st C goals if youth and yunus and all people of goodwill linked in to them in every actionable way and through designing the smartest human media to be in every way the opposite from the dumbest media which the tv age of the west 1950-1997 spun

4 brainstorm the ways in which students could be in charge of the worldwide university value ranking league- i review how university partners with coursera and khan academy platforms to change the roles of its most expensive teachers and buildings; 2 explore how youth destructive capitals eg washington dc start with the least pro-youth valuable universities - and some sister cities in africa start with the most pro-youth elearning and real learning curriculum vitae 6 dare to host debates after every nightly news on where are the short-term demands of elder generation destroying the freedom of our children; know the fables of what happens to whole nations and continents when once in a generation sacrifices are not made by elders on behalf of their next generation;s and does the 21st C unique new innovation of a boderless world make this collapsing systems crisis ever more irreversible in way that eg orwell big brotherdom foretold

The networking era of Borderless Collaboration Innovation (freed by satellite's death of distance as a cost of communicating - can lead to sustaining 10 times more growth of every livelihood - if societies everywhere truly value Mass, Open, Online, Collaboration designed into every possible pro-student dynamic of education. However this rational optimalism will be sustainable only if millennials' goals and investments are designed around the assumption that discrepancies in incomes and expectations of rich and poor nations will be mankind's greatest compound risk

Exercise: what would a billion youth most wish to see in a 6 weeks mooc guided tour of human sustainability starting with some magical 7 minutes good news broadcasts-eg 1 from Lucknow: most illiterate adults can be supported to read a newspaper in under a month; the most abused under 21 girls in africa can find how to relearn to love their self in under 2 months- Maharishi S Africa -if you can help our research please email washington dc 1 301 881 1655

There is a research by Harvard professors and others which says Social media success of marketing is not effective 63%(Approx) time. 
Engaging audience/customers on a constant basis in social media is herculean task when the numbers reach to millions. So the best thing is to reach patients thru body implants or wearable devices which constantly monitor their body vitals and educate them on their health conditions. This method is very effective to reach large scale population; even those who do not speak English and do not have access to internet. I wrote a blog to showcase health industry status and where it is heading here. you can find many resources there to find a solution that suit's your requirement.

Radha, perfectly correct and you emphasise the critical importance of "measuring what we do". It is a herculean task however patients are using it so we need to "tap its potential". Patients are likely to be the best "guiding lights". I like this input.

anna (as always epteam network)  very timely info -thanks
when naila chowdhury  and I met taddy belecher on thursday as part of the Asian US Africa Diaspora week in DC joyfully mobilsed by ethiiopian . women4empowermentand open educational networks, he mentioned strong overlaps/trust between each others goals aa well as skoll networks that taddy and matt fllannery'ss knowhow/innovations can most inspire youth to linkin with 
It could be even more of an opportune time to meet Matt if he's now unburdened from day to day management issues but I can imagine lots of people may be saying that and am sensitive to his mention of family and health issues
look forward to ideas on what our next step should be

ps I am trying to write up half-pagers on the 10 dreams that youth most believe yunus wants to see realised even if he's not managerially going to help; some of these are also being published with yunus as viral postcards surveying what milennials want future of jobs summits to be
i believe one needs to be to do with
blending digital tools so communally that nobody ever needs to have their most productive moment unloaned and every local lender can have the safety of investing in growing local livelihoods;  
I expect you and lucilia's young professional association across 17 cities and epteam summits already have a better wording of how this purpose of community banking is in every way the exact opposite of too big to exist banking systems 
at the roundtable hosted in 2012 by the japanese ambassador to dhaka and guested by civil society builders like sir fazle abed, it was decided at that time that innovations volume 6 issue 4 inclusive finance needed to be a core readers club; if you have difficulty in getting that journal and really need it please tell me and I will see what I can do; its editorial team are the tech wizards responsible for all leading cashless banking systems
some further questions
question 1 do you have better wording of blue sentence
question 2 which tools and whose changes in laws most map this future
kiva zip, puddle (millennial world labs (MWL) usa and kenya)
nanocredit (MWL kenya, and by network reach eg w4e's first scaling, ethiopia family's first elearning scaling?)
other questions:
since I first met hidde two outstanding memories - possibility of taking aflatoun's world leading manual course of financial literacy for primary schools in developing world to next elearning level when there are digital apps that can be designed in as cases 9 year olds can study; I feel samara's 100-dollar satellite-enabled tablet at Yazmi may be what can gravitate this especially if it  turns out that negropronte and all relevant parts of media lab (led by ito) are wishing to see the same open collaboration as of course is brac sir fazle abed as one of largest scalers of aflatoun
have got to feel Bilimoria's latest network is very exciting too -of course its origin orphans out of india may have strong overlaps with the passions of the gandhi family at lucknow and the connections mostofa is linking 1 dhaka 2 dubai
Back in kenya we have ingrid jamii bora as founder of banking for orphans at jamii bora and the bridges schooling systems is currently the fastest replicating in the development world for what parents on about 20 cents a day schooling budget can directly vote for out of every community instead of top-down government organising such
assuming that millennials decide their popst-2015 goals require microeducation and microbanking summits to be converged, hopefully one of the top 10 content panels needs to link some of the people above - and who else is the dream team so that in future education leads netgen specification of purpose of banking and community sustainability?
IBM's purpose in microcredit and nanocredit and social business may need to be pro-youth negotiated now - you can see eg from these links where they are going; there is an odd history to this when you track the jam facilitation method of ibm 
  • IBM Jam Events

    HRH The Prince of Wales Start organisation and IBM Jam on "Smarter Business for a Sustainable Future" Download report. "The Systems of Service", a white ...
- publicly it was first used to set up a global unhabitat summit in vancouver; internally it was first used to unite ibm's internal probono culture- microcredit dashboards was the first resulting project; the team reviewed the fragmented efforts being made by such as grameen foundation and decided to leapfrog way beyond that- now whether the mission of ibm is to restore sustainablity of community banking is probably a top 10 question every millennial needs to know how to unite in asking of us corporate world (in passing i feel mastercardfoundation out of toronto need millennials to crowdround too especially when you look at its declared collaboration wish to impact girls liveihoods in various african countries)

Hi Chris, Naila,
A quick note to let you know that Matt Flannery is stepping down as Kiva CEO (see blog link below) and Premal Shah is stepping up (from President to CEO). His parents are from India and now live in San Diego. 
Best Regards,

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: Matt Flannery 
Date: Friday, June 27, 2014
Subject: Quick note Re: Meeting

Thanks for your message.  I’ve stepped down from my day-to-day role at Kiva!   I will remain on the Board of Directors and as a cofounder will forever act as an ambassador.  
You can read my blog about that here:
Thank you Kiva -- a letter from Kiva’s Co-Founder & CEO Matt Flannery
Dear Kiva Community,

After 10 years leading Kiva, I have decided to step down as CEO. First off, I want to express my utmost respect and gratitude to all of you. You’ve not only brought Kiva to life, but you've also brought so much meaning and inspiration to my own life. After many ongoing conversations, I've decided it's time to embark on a new chapter.

Personal life changes (e.g. family health issues, getting married next month!) make this the right time to pause and reflect on life outside of Kiva.  I also consider myself more of an inventor than a manager. A larger organization needs someone who gets daily energy out of scaling to new heights —as opposed to dreaming up new things.

This difficult decision is made far easier knowing Kiva has a solid foundation and is in a great place. We are financially healthy and growing.  Because of you, Kiva has reached incredible milestones: 1.3 million small businesses funded, nearly $600 million in loans. And we’re innovating new ways to reach new populations: 

• Kiva Labs -- Microfinance 2.0: lets Kiva lenders finance sustainable solutions in water accesshealthhigher education and clean energy for underserved populations around the world.
• Kiva Zip: a direct lending pilot powered by technology and trust, serving borrowers in Kenya and the United States.
• Kiva U: a movement to empower young people—from K-12 to college—with the opportunity to become informed, inspired and mobilized global citizens.

What’s next at Kiva? 

As we go into this transition, I feel confident we’re in good hands. Our President and my wonderful co-pilot for the last 9 years Premal Shah, will continue to lead the company. Premal and Kiva’s highly skilled Management Team will be supported by our Executive Board Chair, Julie Hanna, who has led Kiva’s board for the past 5 years. We’re lucky to have such great leadership continuity.

And I’m not leaving Kiva! While I’ll miss working at Kiva day in, day out—I remain on the Board of Directors, and as Co-Founder will always be a passionate ambassador for Kiva’s mission.

I’ve been overwhelmed with the generosity of your huge hearts. This community created by you has grown beyond anything I could’ve imagined. 1 million+ small businesses in 75 countries whose hard work and dreams have inspired not only me, but the 1 million+ Kiva lendersstaffKiva Fellowseditors & translatorsinternslending teams, supporters and Board of Directors.

I’m sending the Kiva community my love and best wishes. You've stood behind Kiva and continue to stand by the millions of people who share our dream.

If this is regarding Kiva, please contact Kiva’s President, Premal Shah

Highlights of leaders and yunus on education
Many sources have helped yunus develop the lowest cost nursing college out of dhaka- this has a real presence; surely ripe for virtual platforms like sal khan's on health to win-win with

In spite of gordon brown's life work having win-win foci with yunus - eg africa report, make poverty history report, energy report - and from 2014 his role as UN Envoy for education, journalists at Grameen Scotlandcannot as yet find any positive connections between yunus and brown in education

In spite of the 2 youngish French alumni of HEC (Faivre-Tavignot and Faber) who innovated global social business partnering with yunus at paris 2005 lunch at HEC, there is little progress in an open source social mba- even in days when coursera could make this the most popular millennials empowerment curriculum ever. It seems that yunus does not trust the idea of one meta-partnership representing his life's work curriculum

There has also been outstanding work on advancing social business curriculum out of chile but this seems to have got stick in politics caused by yunus most powerful agents

Yunus main corporate partner in green energy schneider claims to have an online energy university

The grameen intel partnerships in education and agriculture tend to develop mobile apps for locally actioning knowhow.

Several universities partner yunus (caledonian, kyushu, california channel isles, ait thailand, German universities controlled by hans or saskia) but none offer open source content as far as we can see
Of these Kyushu is far the best positioned to change accessibility of millennials to yunus.
5 us states have now convened state-wide entrepreneur conferences hosted round the promise that winning students would receive pan state mentoring. The winning projects link together almost all the biggest general areas that us millennials could be regenerating communities with social business. There is a hope that the head of the georgia public university system will help unite all these streams of action learning during the Road to Atlanta process that extends to Nov 2015 and offers the final opportunity to learn how post 2015 millennials' goals should be invested in millennials, not in big organisation greenwashing

Number 1 impact /microeconomics valuation question of friends of yunus - Fellow Bangladeshis: are we ready to launch ourselves into a path to cross $1,000 per capita income, 8 percent GDP growth rate?, and to reduce poverty level to under 25 percent soon? MYUNUS 2006


Dear Bangladeshi Millennials 1 July 2014


1 did you go to social business day (yunus 74th birthday wish party); it was reported in the daily star that after bangladeshis, chinese were the largest group attending;  I have long urged you to form an alumni group of chinese - strategically connecting with yunus 2006 brochure on growing up with giants (reproduced below) and of course integral to his vision of social business superport at cox's bazaar which dad found to be yunus best idea of 2008 


Growing up with giants is about wanting bangladeshi and chinese youth to trade microsolutions and map value chains that end hi-cost and low-trust middlemen- none more urgent conflict-speaking than green ones and mobile open tech ones- have you made any chinese connections? are any hubs etc emerging as chinese visitors favorite places to meet bangladeshi tech wizards? where do ex grameen solutions tech wizards go and why arent any of them linking this in collaboratively- by serendipity washington dc's brookings has become the number 1 economic exchange between americans and chinese out of usa; before they become too famous for this I need to present their ceo (author of sustainble futures of chinese and indian milennials)  with other connectors


2 is it practical to find a day when sir fazle abed is in office and get 5 minute with him- try out the idea that i want to interview as one of top 10 in the world record book of job creators but not just to write a book but because many of the other top 10 most want to meet him or at least know what collaboration wishes he has; 


both of these searches connect with the reason why I thought the japanese embassy was staging the 2 roundtables in 2012; and the reason why I suggested the number one output of that process needed to be a shared monthly action newsletter; now that you are prototyping that in the context of both dubai summit and exchanges with lucknow please find a way of explaining that on one page that you can leave with eg both sir fazle and japan ambassador


what all great educational organisations need to sustain succession is extraordinary alumni networks- of our top 10 job creators only one or two have that; I have repeatedly asked doesnt the abed family want to discuss this; the reason I ask is every conversation I have ever had with sir fazle suggests he does want this- of cousre if I have misunderstood what sir fazle wants then there is no need to ask for an appointment for me to see him anywhere in the world that he finds most suitable


thanks chris

Fellow Bangladeshis: are we ready to launch ourselves into a path to cross $1,000 per capita income, 8 percent GDP growth rate?, and to reduce poverty level to under 25 percent soon?

Lucky to have two giants as our neighbours

India and China are almost there. They have already reached the 8 percent growth rate and 25 percent poverty level. They are becoming such political powers and economic power-houses that the whole world is gathering around them to get their attention.

Bangladesh is lucky to have two globally sought-after giants as her next door neighbours. These giants are not sleeping giants. They are super-active, and growing very fast. We must learn how to take advantage of fast growing giants. We must assess our best interest in building our relationship with them. In their turn, they’ll assess their best interest in having us as their neighbour.

Obviously, they will look at us as their market, their competitor, their partner, and also as a potential trouble-maker. From our side we must make it absolutely clear that we have no intention to be trouble-maker for our neighbours, nor do we want to see them as trouble-maker for us.

But a section of our politics finds it a very attractive theme to impress on the common people of Bangladesh that India is behind all the terrible things that happen in Bangladesh. If you don’t vote for our party, India will turn Bangladesh into her client state.

Countries are not made of saints only or angels only. There are bad people in India, who can dedicate themselves to do bad things to Bangladesh. Similarly, there are bad people in Bangladesh committed to do bad things to India. Both countries must remain vigilant to catch the bad people and punish them forthwith to uphold the friendship between the two countries.

Growing up with giants

When our giant neighbours bring the whole business world to their door-steps, our door-steps come very near to the business world. Visibility and contacts are very important factors in business. They come to us easily because of having important neighbours. If we play our cards right, our economy can pick up the speed of our neighbours.

Growing neighbours are also sources of technology and experience. Expanding economies keep moving towards more and more high-profit products and services, leaving behind low- profit, labour intensive items. This creates opportunities for neighbours. This is not to suggest that Bangladesh has to satisfy herself only with the markets and the products which giant neighbours are not interested in. What Bangladesh can do will depend on our level of efficiency and management skill. Bangladesh can find niche to provide high value specialised products and services to her giant neighbours.

I am emphasising on the fact that having two fast growing giant neighbours is a great boon for us. Let us dispel the fear that living between two giants is a scary prospect — that we may be stepped on from any side, any minute! On the contrary, we’ll be the beneficiary of coasting effect of having two giants next to us. We can get a ride on the fast train with them.

An open-door, open-arm country

Future of Bangladesh lies in being an open-door, open-arm country. We must not live under the fear of the Indian wolf. We must get the constant fear of the Indian wolf out of our system. If it is a real threat, we’ll have to prepare for it and get on with our lives. If it is imaginary, we’ll have to get our minds cleansed out. Frequent cries of Indian wolf is a sign of our political emptiness.

In the world today domination does not come through sneaky conspiracies. Domination comes from economic power. If we remain a poor country, everybody will dominate us, not just India. Moving up the economic ladder quickly is the best protection from all dominations. Let us not confuse this issue.

In order to move up the ladder quickly we should open all our doors, invite everybody in, encourage our people to spread themselves all over the wide world, show their talents and win over the confidence and appreciation of the whole world. Hiding behind closed doors is no protection at all.

Let’s make Bangladesh the cross-roads of the region

Let’s envision Bangladesh as the cross-roads of the region, if not the world. Let people, products, investments from all over the world flow into Bangladesh, and out of Bangladesh, with utmost ease, safety, and efficiency. Let’s make our laws, institutions, bureaucracy, travel and transportation facilities, financial system most friendly to the movement of people, investments, goods and services in and out of Bangladesh. Let’s build everything in Bangladesh in such a way that Bangladesh becomes the natural first choice of hard-nosed investors and traders. Let Bangladesh be Bangladesh International. Let us all agree on this vision and then move forward unitedly to make it a reality at the fastest possible speed.

To make Bangladesh an international cross-roads we’ll have to address the following:

i) Reduce corruption level drastically.
ii) Provide reliable electricity all over the country.
iii) Open up ICT and make Bangladesh a very attractive country in terms of state-of-the-art ICT.
iv) Build a mega-port in a suitable location along the Chittagong coastline capable of serving the following countries: Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, Eastern India, Myanmar, and South-Western China.
v) Build highways to connect the mega-port with all six countries.

We must visualise Bangladesh as the ICT, industrial and trading hub of the region. On the first day of 2006 we have signed a document which has the potential to change the economy of SAARC region. The document we signed was the document relating to SAFTA agreement. Now Bangladesh should take the lead, rather than wait for initiatives to come from other countries, to move SAFTA forward. We can be smart, open our doors, convert disadvantages into opportunities, and change our destiny.

Geographically, Bangladesh is strategically located to provide access to international shipping to Nepal, Bhutan, Eastern India, Myanmar, and South-Western China. We should start making appropriate preparations, in consultation with these countries, to create facilities for access. Again, it’ll to be our call to draw attention of our neighbours. We’ll have to do our home-work well to show them the benefits accruing to them by opening up the access to the sea-routes through Bangladesh, and doing business with Bangladesh. We’ll have to resolve formidable political and technical issues with India. Remaining passive is not at all to our interest. It is actually very costly in terms of gains foregone. True leaders not only have visions, they have to have the burning drive to push through the solid walls of obstacles to make their visions come true. Vision must be backed up by hard work and dedication.

Mega-port at Chittagong

Mega-port at Chittagong is the key to making Bangladesh the cross-roads of the region. With the economy of the region growing at a sustained high speed, demand for the access to a well-equipped well-managed port will keep on growing. A region, which includes two giant economies, will be desperately looking for direct shipping facilities to reach out to the world. Chittagong will offer the region the most attractive option. Even today, despite the problems of present Chittagong port, Kunming is requesting permission to utilise this facility.

With global competition becoming more fierce shorter and shorter lead time for delivery will become the magic formula to attract business. An efficient mega-port at Chittagong will be in high demand. This port can be built and owned by a national or international company with government participation in equity. It can contract out the management of the port to a professional port management company.

International airport

Mega-port may support an international airport in its proximity. With appropriate aircraft servicing facilities and hotels, this airport can become an airline hub. It has the advantage of cutting distances to many Asian cities like Tokyo, Osaka, Beijing, Shanghai, etc, and taking off the pressure from important SAARC airports.

Highway network

During the SAARC Summit held in Dhaka recently, Dr. Manmohan Singh, Prime Minister of India, proposed to build a highway network to connect the SAARC countries. We should enthusiastically welcome this proposal and offer our plan to build highways connecting Nepal, Bhutan, Eastern India, and Pakistan. We should make sure that our highway network extends upto Cox’s Bazar, so that it can be connected with Myanmar, Thailand, and China in the eastern side.

Regional water management plan

With borders opening up, highways criss-crossing the region, businesses growing, we can create mutual trust among our neighbours, leading to right kind of political climate to engage them to work towards preparing a regional water management plan in conjunction with the plan for regional production and distribution of electricity. Fortunately, this region has an enormous capacity to produce hydro-electricity. With political understanding Bangladesh can meet her ever growing electricity need from a mutually beneficial arrangement with Nepal, Bhutan, and India.

$100 lap-tops for school children

Bangladesh has a very young population. Half the population is under the age of 18! If we pay serious attention to them we can create a dramatically different next generation. Some countries are already signing up with MIT Media Lab to provide $100 lap-top to each school student, just like text books. Lap-top to a child gives a message. Message is: Discover yourself, discover the world, create your own world. There is no reason why we cannot sign up with MIT Media Lab to do exactly the same and give lap-tops to our students. Let us not miss this world-changing opportunity.

One way to let all children, poor or rich, boy or girl, urban or rural, feel equal is to ensure access to computer and internet. This connectivity also takes off some of the unevenness in our educational facilities. We have already witnessed a telecommunication revolution. Within a short span of five years mobile phones have reached every village in Bangladesh. At the end of 2006, one in every eight persons in Bangladesh will have a telephone! With $100 lap-top, every school student will have access to internet telephony.

Our young people can be role model

I meet many Bangladeshi young people when I am visiting foreign countries. Many of us are used to meeting Bangladeshis in New York. But it is a quite different experience to meet young Bangladeshis in a small town of Spain, or in an island in Italy, or in Argentina, Chile, Columbia. They show up to meet me at the hotel or in the conference where I am speaking. They discover my presence in the town from the newspaper reports. They come individually. They come in groups. Among everything else they express their worry about the political situation in the country. I ask them how they got there. Each tells a horror story. Each time it is a story of perseverance, tenacity, and high risk adventure. It is quite an experience to hear them tell the story of how they moved from one country to the next, how they switched from one livelihood to another. They are doing well now. They have learnt the local language and understand the local way of life. They are at ease with local people. Story one gets from a migrant worker working in an Asian country is different, but not too different. It is the story of how they are cheated by the man-power agents, and how they are mistreated by the airport officials at the time of departure as well as at the time of visits.

Bangladeshi young people reached out to all corners of the world with basically individual and family initiative, using network of friends and relatives. Government has built some facilities to help them by making it easy for them to go out. But you hear more about the harassment, bribes, extortion and unresponsiveness of the government officials than nice things about these arrangements. These young people who live under extreme difficulties are making a big contribution to the national economy. They have been sending a very substantial amount of money as remittances.

Overseas remittance

The piece of information that amazed me is: in 2004, Bangladesh received $3.4 billion in remittances, compared to India’s $21.7 billion (and China’s $21.3 billion). That is quite an achievement! With nine times larger population, India’s share would have been $30.6 billion if she had received the same per capita remittance. Bangladesh remittance earning rate compares well with Pakistan too ($3.9 billion). Total remittance to Bangladesh constituted one-third of the total foreign exchange earnings of the country. Despite all the problems faced by Bangladeshi migrant workers, this is a very significant chunk of foreign exchange earning contributed by them.

More important than the quantum of foreign exchange earning, remittances go directly into poverty reduction. The World Bank Global Economic Prospects Report says this remittance inflow has helped cut poverty by 6 percent in Bangladesh and given a boost to the rural economy.

Building up respectability as a nation

Bangladesh is a rather new name in the list of nations. It came to world’s media attention mostly through disasters — floods, cyclones, tidal-waves, etc. Reporting on disasters always highlights poverty, and helplessness. That’s the image of Bangladesh that sticks in people’s mind. Two recent negative images have been added to that. One, Bangladesh has been repeatedly found to be the most corrupt country in the world, and two, suicide bombers are killing innocent people in Bangladesh.

Image of a country is very important when it comes to dealing with the world. The better the image a country has, the better is the deal it gets. To be successful in international relationships we’ll have to build up respectability as a nation. Luckily for us Bangladesh has a very strong positive side which counters the negative image to a large extent.

Bangladesh is enormously respected globally for being the birth place of microcredit. Every country in the world feels the need for microcredit. No country can ignore it. They study microcredit in academic institutions, discuss it in meetings, conferences and workshops. Most countries, rich or poor, have active microcredit programs. They all pay respect to Bangladesh for being the originator country. Bangladesh, microcredit, Grameen have become synonymous in the minds of people around the world.

Bangladesh is remembered as the country which gave the world oral saline to combat diarrhea.

Bangladesh earned respectability by demonstrating her skill and efficiency in disaster management. World media publicly suggested that tsunami affected countries and the US, after devastating Katrina, should learn from Bangladesh in disaster management.

Bangladesh is cited as a success story in producing enough food to feed her people despite doubling the population in 35 years.

In terms of human development indicators Bangladesh is third from the top

Bangladesh birth rate has declined significantly. Fertility rate declined from 6.3 percent in 1975 to 3.3 percent in 1999 - 2000, reduced almost to half. This is cited as a global success story.

Economic performance and human development indicators of Bangladesh have been moving upwards since early 1990s. GDP growth has been over 5 per cent during this period.

Bangladesh has very impressive performance in terms of the human development indicators. In terms of these indicators Bangladesh came out in number three position in the developing world, after China and Cave Verde.

Life expectancy of women in Bangladesh used to be lower than men. Now it is higher than men, a better performance compared to South Asia as a whole.

Female labour force participation rate increased dramatically between 1983 and 2000, both for rural and urban, with sharper increase in rural, than in urban. Female labour force participation rate in rural area increased from 7 per cent in 1983-84 to 22 per cent in 1999-2000. Urban rate increased from 12 per cent to 26 per cent during the same period.

Child and infant mortality have been falling at more than 5 percent a year, malnutrition among mothers has fallen from 52 percent in 1996 to 42 percent in 2002. Primary school enrolment rates have reached 90 percent, up from 72 percent in 1990. Enrolment in secondary education has been rising. Bangladesh has already eliminated gender disparity in primary and secondary school enrolment and has made remarkable progress in providing universal basic education.

In the past decade, Bangladesh reduced infant mortality by half, at a rate faster than any other developing country has done, increased adult literacy rates by 8 per cent for women, and 6 per cent for men.

In terms of infant mortality rate and female primary enrolment, Bangladesh is ahead of West Bengal, Punjab, and Uttar Pradesh of India.

Progress towards achieving millennium development goals (MDG) in Bangladesh is surprisingly on track. According to data on current trends, Bangladesh has either met or is expected to meet most of the MDG targets. If right policies are pursued dedicatedly there is a good chance that Bangladesh will reduce poverty by half by 2015.

Capacity has been built, we are ready to go

Bangladesh has outstanding accomplishment in reducing child labour. According to UNICEF, percentage of child labour in Niger is the highest (66 percent). Bangladesh has one of the lowest percentages (7 percent). Nepal is 31 percent, India 13 percent.

The list of our accomplishments is long and very impressive. We notice the admiring eyes of international delegates focused on Bangladeshi delegates when we attend international conferences, be it microcredit, disaster management, health, education, renewable energy, environment, women empowerment, or child labour.

When we visit capitals of SAARC countries we are always asked: “How did you do it? What must we do to catch up with you?”

I am not saying that Bangladesh is on top of everything. Far from it. Our list of failures is much longer than the list of successes. I bring up the list of successes to point out how wrong we are when we throw up our hands in the air to say in frustration that we’ll never make it. This list of successes will convince anybody that not only will we make it, we have already made it in many respects, and will do better than many others around us, and like us.

Good news that comes out from these successes is that we have created the capacity to address all our problems roundly and solidly. Not only we have gained self-confidence, we are ready to earn the confidence of the world. Soon a Bangladeshi passport can bring out admiration and respect from others, rather than suspicion and disrespect.

It is hard work to score points in respectability. It is easy to lose points. One tiny incident, one tiny misstep, one tiny callous decision can push us down quite a bit in respectability. Let us hold on to what we already have, and add to it, as much as we can. It is our very precious capital in facing the world.

Tremendous energy waiting to be mobilised

World is changing very fast. If we are late by a day we’ll fall behind by years. We have come a long way and we are ready to go forward with speed. Bangladesh has the fire in her belly to keep pace with her giant neighbours. Let us not allow ourselves to slow down. We need the right politics and the right leadership to mobilise the tremendous energy in Bangladeshi young people.

Let us think and work hard to make it happen.


Entry from life in day of Yao Ming -China Nov 2013

This is so fantastic. Former Houston Rockets center Yao Ming is three years removed from his last game as an NBA player, and four and a half years removed from his last All-Star game as a dominant force in the pivot, but that hasn’t stopped him from attempting to turn himself into an anonymous scholar of sorts. As detailed by the New York Times on Thursday, Yao is beginning his third year at Jiao Tong University in Shanghai, China – an institution he chose in 2011 because he “wanted to feel the atmosphere on campus.”

Presumably the Frisbee Golf competitions at the quad, we’re guessing.

Here’s a snippet of Yao’s day to day life, from the Times:

On class days, Yao Ming, the 7-foot-6 retired N.B.A. center, wakes up at the crack of dawn to beat the Shanghai traffic. Carrying a lunch prepared by his wife, Ye Li, a 6-foot-3 former player in China’s professional league, Mr. Yao drives more than an hour to Jiao Tong University, where he sits through his required courses in the economics and management department. According to one Chinese news report, Mr. Yao would prefer to live in the dorms with his 20-year-old classmates, a move that would save time and energy, “but the beds are too small.”


“When I signed my first professional contract with the Shanghai Sharks at age 17, I promised my parents that, after my basketball career ended, I would pursue my studies at the university level,” Mr. Yao told reporters in Shanghai.

As reported two years ago by People’s Daily Online, Yao will be receiving a heap of private instruction in mathematics, English, journalism (!) and finance courses because he is still swarmed on the campus by adoring fans. He also had to give an initial press conference upon his first year at the university, one that was attended by over 100 media members.

The Times also relayed another interesting quirk to Yao’s life as a student. Most famous former athletes are expected to take on a figurehead role with the government upon retirement, acting as an ambassador for the country in myriad ways in order to take advantage of their celebrity. Because Yao had to leave home at such an early age to train with the members of the Chinese national team, though, he felt pressure to live up to the educational promise he made to his parents. Yao has taken on several charitable causes in his time away from the game, most notably in opposition to the cruel act of cribbing shark fins for food, but his commitment to chasing his degree seems real.

Which is tough, because as Yao mentioned two years ago, he’s a bit “rusty” when it comes to picking up on what most students have to work through in their late teens. Yao is clearly a very intelligent man, but going back to college in your early-to-mid 30s is no joke.

Especially when you’re being mobbed by fellow classmates on your way from class to class. The packed lunch from the missus helps, though, we presume.


anna you tell me over 30% of uni of san diego are asians

we can of course adapt tebabu's model to have correspondents of millennials across whole eastern hemisphere but please lets make sure the chinese feel epicentral to this because win-win trade with china remains number 1 way to get millennials networking their goals for a sustainable planet -eg if china gets green energy right in time climate can be saved before half if bangladesh is the wrong sort of puddle

right now the  superstar of the future of chinese education is also the number 1 retired star of the NBA - hence a triad of exchanges between africa americans and chinese - the former commisioner of the NBA and director of thurgood marshall is also the agent Yao Ming trusts most

ultimately nobody's a real friend of yunus who doesnt build win-win trades between bangladeshis and chinese only china is big enough to ensure bangladesh doesnt become the next Egypt -reread 2008 yunus book- cox's bazar

If we have both East Coast and West Coast hosting inter-hemisphere summits before Atlanta nov 2015 

then we can get back to Free EDU's pro-youth futures

question the 3 stages why missing grassroots curriculum of clean energy was never yet been offered to students

1 back in the Presidency of Jimmy Carter, Neville Williiams was assigned to champion solar energy - questions to ask: why did congree serially chnage funds for solar energy back to dirty energy; when nevile wilaims took solar energy to developing world with why didnt his knowledge really start to open source unitil Muhammad Yunus talked to him

2 regarding the clean enrgy for a billion off grid people model of mkuhammad yunus written up by nancy wilmer - why is it there isnt one associkiation of open source replicators across countries instead of many rivals each tryong to bring it to developing countries

3 regarding china's make or great impact on clean energy and climate in the next quarter of a century, why isnt a  mooc of yunus clean energy curriculum already a number 1 partnership with a chinese university

During Bangaldesh's pre-digital banking (20th C) , the microbanking models of Grameen and BRAC were miraculous win-wins. Unlike Yunus' banking coircle growth which was mainly urganisc - ending poverty one banking circle at a time; BRAC tended to design mass interventions across all vilages aimed at changing a value chain -eg dairy, poultry so hundreds of thousands of jobs for the poorest would gain a sustaiining wage- or in some of its first cases providing a service which the villages had never previously enjoyed capacity to  sustain. The BRAC roll-out "small may be beautiful but in bangladesh large scale is absolutely essential requires very different operational capabilities. ;programs need iterative testing before they are launched. Efficient, effective and explandable are criteria that BRAC and its mass funders demand to see R&D'd. The Yunus model permits a lot more experimentation - as indeed was the case from the start in 1976 when the grameen project was a bank for poorest men and women but by 1983 emerged with its own Bangaldeshi ordinmace as a bank with 98+% women members and owners.

Moreover with BRAC being the supplier of the vast majority of vilage schools- these served all porest community children including thise Grameen mothers had committed to send to primary schools as one of te 16 decisions of becoming a member

Three of the most trustworthy summaries economists have ever written form the same practical conclusion for advancing the human lot (of the 99% of us) though their contexts were different.


The conclusion : the number 1 job of the economics professions is accelerate the race to end poverty and the number 1 means for doing this is to structure capital systems so youth's livelihood opportunities are sustained out of every locality. (If the human race is to be nature's most sustainable species then hpefully 7 billion beings can agree on a simple definition of the end of poverty: wherever you are born you have at least a fair chaince of healthy and productive livelihhod)


1843- this was the conclusion of the founder of The Economist. Admittedly his reason for mediating pro-youth economics was that he had become an MP determined to sack the majority of MPS who had by 1843 become representative of vested interests such as corn monopolies (who caused famines) not of 99% of peoples. James went on to celebrate severely testing the industrial revolution's biggest decision-makers views ahead of time and convincing Queen Victoria that it would be more fun to rule over an English Constitution of commonwealth than of slave-making. She dispatched him to Calcutta to reform Raj's ruling systems where he died 9 months after landing needing oral rehydration (the first health service solution that was to scale the grameen and brac networks)


1930s By this time it was clear to keynes that because the world is ruled increasing only by economists and meta-system philosophers, elderly academics whose theories dominate nations professions and politics design what futures youth will be sustained or destroyed by. Reread the last 3 pages of his General Theory or his last essay on persuasion - it provides a complete framework for understanding every macroeconomic folly grandeuir that is currently destroying net generation livelihoods when open technology ought to be empowering te humanly most productive time to be alive


2008 Yunus's first book on social business - especially the first chapter- announces ahead ot time the collapsing distrust being spun round the world's biggest banking system and politicians and academics in their ivory towers. It connects his 2 lifelong learnings- of why the safest banking system are grounded in serving the world's poorest village mothers day to day banking needs; and the investment arms of these banks match the mothers goals of investing in health and  job creating education for their children

 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.

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

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;
