BELT Road quiz

Belt quiz is about earh's seas and coastal belt - which coastal belt is your country most dependent on, does if have a superport connecting mps of world favorite superports, do your peoples have access to this superport (nb we recommend analysing countries imprt and exports by 1 energy, 2 all other goods

wow sustainability goals took lot of work- special thanks to youth of china and golden era of sino-english language relationships-

Jan 2018 to celebrate the golden era of sino-english learning economies proposed by China and Britains Prime Minister help world record jobs creators launch = curriculum of Belt Road Initiatives shared by 100 nations 5th grade teachers - valuing goodwill partnerships needed to end poverty by 2020 and be benchmark for ecological civilsation by 2050 -mapping youth frindship networks : china to and from the workld's coastlines and overland (engineering 21st C rails, pipes of green energy, water telcom)

Sunday, September 30, 2018 - help with top 10 ways of valuing youth futures

TOP 2 World Record Jobs Creators for every child and teacher to enjoy in 2018
#2 Sir Fazle Abed (connector of Bangaldesh's and the world's girl empowerment networks since 1972)
#1 China's Xi Jinping is sustainability world's number 1 world record jobs co-creator  (search out guterres and other BRI co-creators) while he helps us celebrate 4 things:

1 curriculum of BRI from 5th grade up (what is BRI) -(help design BRI as geographiy and future of your trading nation game for 11 year olds and teachers)

2 end poverty in china by 2020; and make sure poverty never comes back to china or anywhere in sustainability's world of connectivity including refugees at its borders or wars or other ways youth futures collapse
3 rejuvenation of china- a dream chinese parents as defining the unlimited potential of children to be both productive and happy and to connect this spirit wherever they mobilise friendships around the world  (exercise discuss similarities or differences between chna 21st c dream and what peopkle used to call the american deam - for example withiut the american dream in the 1940s hitler would probably have taken ove the world with hatred and dictatirship of the middle of te 20th C-  in all probality nuclear wars woulkd have ended our species -eg read norman macrae's biography of john von neumann the number 1 mathematician of the american dream of the mid 20th C, the father of computing networks, and sadly a man who died before his time making sure that hitler did not get nucear first)

4 by 2050 china being a benchmark for ecological world trade civilisations

in november 2018 jinping uodated 80 million community servants across china on thes goals - the source speech took 3.5 hours to deliver- the question to studnts everywhere is can this be trasblated into a 5th grade quiz by you and your tecahers and communities; how else will you be the sustainability gebneration if such extrorsinary celebrations of win-win futures are not mapped across every regions BRI

1 free universities are designed around the whole education system should be designed so students (however disadvantaged) can be entrepreneurially free to co-create communities making up their nation's joyful future as well as their worldwide generations job number 1 - returning humanity to being sustainable (by 2100 the world will be a happy place if 10 billion people are thriving , it will be an unhappy place if our species is spiralling towards extinction- id you are among the half of the world under 30 yoday and aim to be a parent -imagine your chikd being uder 30 at a time when it is clear that climate in many parts of the wporld can not be safe

more on free universites -chosen as wise and UN eminent educators (leaders of sustainability goals) year of 2018

more on =  top 10 ways of valuing youth

(please note while is concerned with every age group - as of 2018 most education systems orgamnise every grade around what univeristies lead - this is something that is very much a pre-digotal legacy - we believe the likes of jack ma has promised that from 2020 he will deveote most of hos time to chnaging this - tell else who else you know who values youth as much as jack ma  (ma at UN; ma at 2020 olympics; ma at adrica; ma at 3000 person mastraining sessions ... where do you celebrate ma being at?)

BRAC partnership network is number 1 in empowering girls to be the sustainability generation and to celebrate searches of COMtech's deepest innovators of global 2.0 action networking. 

Consequently BRAC collaborations are trusted to integrate:
The world’s largest movement of beyond the classroom education
The world’s largest non government owned schooling system

Resilient world's origin of bottom-up disaster relief and community development networks
Number 2 (to China's Tsinghua) BRAC University concerned with future curricula of public servants
World’s largest cashless banking system  - one of the main ways to be 80% self-sustaining all work on ending Ultra poverty through livelihood creation. (Before attracting coders of BRAC had been asked to be the founding partner of the curriculum sharing association of Global Alliance of Banks with Values founded around similar concerns to those that evolved the G20 was after subprime's exponential financial crisis of the first millennials goals decade 1999-2008.)

BRAC Partners include: village mothers and daughters of Bangladesh, Gates Foundation, Mastercard Foundation, Soros, British and Australian Aid, MIT Legatum Foundation, Rice Science leaders, Last mile health schools ... alumni networks of such world prizes as Fazle Hasan Abed's at WISE, UNDP, Clinton Global Citizen, World Food Prize... as well as his Alma Mater Adam Smith's Glasgow University (and so the Scottish dream of James Wilson Economist and Commonwealth Queen Victoria to go beyond the Colonial World Trade pathways that Mercantile British Empire sadly compounded into 450 years of East-West Hemisphere trade concluding in world war 2. In New Year 2010 Awards, Queen Elizabeth knighted Sir Fazle -probably the pre-eminent South Asian knighthood in English-speaking history.

Any errors in wording above collaboration purpose  are mine alone -if this was a first contribution to a wiki how would all of sir fazles greatest connectors and education friends reword it?-- Ever since the Chinese graduates Amy and Yuxuan attended Sir Fazle's 80th birthday party they have been asking Mostofa and me why cant something like this be scaled "educationally" .so that Sir Fazle's girls unite the world of courage and hope youth need is massively understood in China and among those whose cultures share's rejuvenation dreams and SDG's urgent timelines for action out of every community

 In addition. the coordinator Justin Van Fleet of Gordon Brown's  (UN Education Envoy ) & Education Commission was asking in 2016 for Sir Fazle to make a speech or briefing statement to all the 30+ national leaders of commissioning education to go beyond the classroom.  I was one of several people who failed to actionably bring this message to Sir Fazle.
Please see footnote story of Van Fleet:--


Urgent reasons for for circulating this feb 2018 include
asking what contributions BRAC can make at :
the next 3 wise summits
the next summits of any sort where education and girls or sustainability genration's  livelihoods are core leadership concern
making sure that education and soft skills and girl empowerment and small enterprise solutions linkin everywhere belt roads develops or superstar events eg Ali Baba Olympics Tokyo are reformed. Critical today are big data small tech    possibiilities - eg needed if blockchain is to be part of the solution of poverty alleiaition.

(Right at this moment the UN eminent committee is being surveyed by 4 expert networks- new development banking, education, green , technology for humanising 4th industrial revolution)

If we can get the wording right chinese female graduates can translate why BRAC is second only to china's cpc 19 in demanding futires where girls lift up half the sky by celebrating how since 1972  the most valuable development dreams of Bangladesh echo China's. The difference is China has enjoyed diaspora (as early as 1970s the 3rd biggest finacial power ) inward investment in pursuit of this dream whereas BRAC girls have had to entrepreneurially earn every investment and in so doing have been recognised by some of the world's most extraordinary knowhow partnerships both in scaling 1.0 and 2.0 solutions

With the right wording we can make it simpler for sino-eglish speaking women4empowerent networks to clarify why sir fazle abed  (and educators he inspires) connects ( with other top 5 world record jobs creators such as Xi Jinping, Guterres, Jack Ma and Pope Francis (as well as survey through ever nation that joins belt road who they locally vote for as world record job creators for girls and end poverty communities for all

The folloowin speech was made in spring 2016 at brookings (long transcript here) by Justin Van Fleet before launching te Education Commission at UN September 2016. Sir Fazle had been invited as chief guest and main inspiration of Gordon Brown but I was one of the main people who failed to explain the timong significance of this invitation.

by JUSTIN VAN FLEET -coordinator of networks for Gordon Browns Education Commjison of 30 national leaders  (Gordon Brown is also the special UN envoy for education)


Can we start to be more comfortable when they're saying education is central to any social or economic reform any government wants to undertake whether it's a defense, whether it's a security reform, whether it's a health reform, whether it's climate?

Can we actually be more confident when we're putting out there what we're saying about education so that no finance minister or politician will disagree with that, and they'll actually start their statement by looking at what they can do with education? 

Can we think more boldly about what other investments actually help us further education in the 21st Century? Let's look at infrastructure. I mean, there are things -- I look at -- we had an example in January where Jack Ma, who runs Alibaba in China, said in 60 years, Walmart was on this course to go to every rural village in China and actually deliver goods and services, and bricks and mortar schools. But in eight years, we actually leapfrogged by using e-commerce.

 So I'm not saying that there's a direct parallel in education, but we need to just think differently about the changing world, and how we actually react and interact with what the reality is, and can we think forward? And I think looking at innovation, we need to not be afraid of innovation. 

This came up during a dinner last week which I thought was really interesting. Would you go into an emergency room or an operating room, and have a surgery in an operating room that looked like the operating room of a hundred yeras ago?

Probably not if you had the option to go into a 21st Century operating room, or one of 2016. Yet, everyday, we're sending children to have brain surgery in the most unreformed institution of the last century. The classrooms of today look like the classroom of a hundred a years ago, so we need to actually think a little bit differently because it really is brain surgery. It's cognitive development. It's trying to bring young people up to be proactive and active members of our society, and we just need to be thinking more boldly and differently about that. So I think we need to challenge each other to sort of get outside of our comfort zone if we're going to sort of take this next big leap forward.

dear professor yan, friends of BeltRoad I as once in a generation 1 2 win-win  map/global2.0 network for humanityvery excited by the IFF ReportChina 2018 and in particular your profiling of the bay area and i think you mentioned 11 sub-regions each with world calss capacities

our student teams are publishing guided tours to chinese supercities and the overall edition of sino-english world record book of jobs creators...would it be possible to fix a short meeting with you?

 the scale of the whole Bay Area makes it harder (for me) to explain to leaders quests where to see first; we have mit friends who know the parts of shenzen which makes it a world class fab lab and makers city; and thanks to meetings at aiib 2017 in korea i believe i know who to start with when arramging tours for those interested in financial belt roads; and we know who leades the region's main education foundation

amy at columbia university has been my main transtalor at student network searcher for many years with her china based friend song,  but as belt road curricula eg scales  i am currently short of dc based graduates who might be interested in open sourcing this guide- in the event that you know anyone who might like details please ask them to contact me at any time; from my scottish view of economics,  the whole of eurasia continent and the two outlying empires UK, Japan have a moral imperative to end conflicts all along the silk road and eurasian belt that empire spun 1500-1946- this is at least one valid use of the english language that thise English experst close to AIIB can explain as pivotal to under 30s becoming the sustainability generation

sincerely, thanks for wonderful inspiration, chris macrae
Norman Macrae Foundation Futures of win-win china since 1977 - The Economist's Death of Distance Youth World Thought Leader

Wednesday, April 18, 2018

extremely interested in your contributions to brookings debrief of the IFF CHINA report today - did you say you have new book or other references i should go and read

what i learnt from my fathers 40 years at The Economist including his entrepreneurial 1977 survey of trusting china to sustain millennials 
is that there are many diuferent types of economics all connected by one consequence clarified in last chapter of keynes general systems - they expoenetially lock in a place's youth to what trade is possible- my father believed most late 20th C macroeconomists in west got very muddled the more they are sure they are perfect

i personally believe all of china's models are best for the world particularly understanding selectively the 5 million startups now emerging annually

  - which ones involve tech that can be replicated wherever youth are in communities with deep sustainability goals chalenges are what to encourage student union BRI clubs around

amy and her tsinghua friend introduced me to ying lowrey author of alibaba way and in middle of all jack ma solutions with her student portal currently amy is at columbia where ying own mentor nobel economist of mass flourishing is based

i live in bethesda - if you would be happy to meet me in dupoont circle region (and a few friends) - we are workingh hard to segment youth solutions by contecxts

dad started what has become 10 years searching solutions for bangaldesh's poorest girls and so much of china's south asia neighbors particularly those networked round sir fazle abed 

an in dc i am finding tech searches linking china with the 8 arctic circle countries want

i havent yet found an aiib or new developement bank cluster of nation stidents idc - but i do know the auditor of aiib who lives in georgetown and can happily introduce him to you if thats good

cheng li owes me a meeting but has so far been too busy to clarify when

cheers chris macrae bethesda mobile 240 316 8157
