Dear Miles and Friends- Miles are you in new york middle of next week or back in columbia where my frend camilo from wall streets Imperative Fund – Lifting communities out of poverty, in 5 years or less will be?
MILES SPORTS Public-Youth-Private Parterning CAN SUSTAIN 17 GOALS COLLABORATION CULTURES
Playworks I love your case out of colombia on how sports can change communities and youths world. How can we scale awareness around its possibilities and can we edit a catalogue of win-win solutions of sports, fashion, and arts-culture entrepreneurs
Probably pivotal in the sports world is the DC-based ceo of the special olympics whose other lifelong passion is emotional learning nicely echoing your case. African American Friends Baltimore are looking at how to scale his knowhow and that of Leana Wen (america's extraordinary public health servant with special interest in adolescence) featured with George Patton in Mattias Youth in Development WB event. Ironically the communities where Freddie Gray was killed were 1881 also the first black girls end slavery communities nurturing Thurgood Marshall as their best known alumn. So they need safe spaces to play sports (and school) just like you described Miles in Colombia.
Arguably number 1 in organically changing youth's world of musicians is monica yunus's www.singforhope.org though for sake of transparency I declare certain biases in wanting it to be. Out of the Vatican University that Maurice is Youth Abmasador for http://premiosciacca.it/ is a jolly happy model too
Of course many people valuing sustainable youths futures are chasing Jack Ma for sponsorship or being recognised as synergetic to his purpose or indeed all of Xi Jinpings China's rejuvenation purpose with half a billion under 30s who need to be sustainable employed.
Urgent though: in Davos this year Ma declared his Big Data Small wizard way of changing sports market so everyone could play is sponsoring the next 3 olympics Tokyo, Paris, LA - hence the need to build partnerships with local hosts- miko is working hard on the tokyo side, the idea of a free sustainability mba actually statred in paris in 2005 (I know who)
In any event Ma needs a catalogue of what turns sports, fashions and arts bottom up. Moreover Argentina is his biggest latin american partner on the ecommerce and social credit side alipay so one can expect his to play some role in argentina g20 july 2017 just as he did hangzhou g20 china 2015. Knowing Jack Ma partnership ecosystem is also essential to timely leapfroging your localities greatest chnace to co-create jobs-rich techology preferentially applied to include poorest girls and boys
Very exciting at Beijing May's Belt Road Forum was UN Antonio Guterres
declaration that this actions global2.0 beyond the chat we often do in NY. Belt and Road: Exclusive interview with UN Secretary General Guterres
Further BACK FROM FUTURE GOALS Mapping
CULTURAL PERMISSIONS OF BOTTOM-UP All the deepest pre-digital solutions (from Bangladesh's girl empowerment around sir fazle abed to farmer/kims partners in health) to ending poverty emerged from latin countries in the 1960s including Luis Peru and Colombia and Paulo Freier's Brazil. So Argentina convening Franciscan value g20 July 2018 (this student class yeras main incubation purpose) is timely as indeed the next year is luis 2019 youth and americas leadership event in Peru.
Back in 1972 my father at The Economist created the future history genre of entrepreneurial revolution - would the net generation be sustainability's and livelihoods best of times, or would orwell's big brotherdom be how the global village world spiralled off course? People like gifford pinchot of the intrapreur movement out of tarrytown quickly joined in the genre as it evolved in the 1970s. So fathers last project assmbled Adam Smith scholars around Muhammad Yunus to launch Journal of Social Business - sustainability as system design; economics as job creation networking out of Glasgow Univerity 2008 (250th celebration of publication of moral sentiments) to2012 with Gordon Brown chief local fan of these 4 years of youth empowerment.
Fast forward 2030now 2020now: My family and friends goal is to bring out either a book or a mooc on solution franchsies of world record job creators and initially to see it published in chiense and english though latin languages and japanese and korean are essential too. It may sound crazy but i am confidnent that by 2020 China's top public servant university Tsinghua and MIT will have mooced a sustainability MBA where the theory and certification is free for those students who spend 4 years applying it. A nice reversal of the MBA being both the most expensive and most sustainability destructive curriculum - it was after all designed from the outset round big banking
If anyone I know gets close enough to Jack Ma to explain their movement it would be important to me that all the people circulated here were included as much as they wanted to be. Four years ago Alizee/amy was watching the ony 10 minute segment jim kim has ever mooced while finishing her degree back in china; basically maurice at vatican university and she have been seraching global youth-led movements ever since - miko is her japanese american friend and miko's husband invented extextiles which can change fashion branding; camilo arranges wall street funds to end poverty 5000 people at a time in latin america and both he and amy are working out of columbia university wuth class of 2017-2018.
SINO_US FRIENDSHIP CIRCUMNAVIGATING TRUMPDOM
Over decades extremely practical relationships have been planted between henry kissinger , the c100 chinese american network he helped start 30 years ago around musicians and architects and brookings in both DC and Tsinghua, and the people i have got to know after 6 visits to beijing. I am happy to map connections such as brookings with anyone who wants to including the people at IYLA I met yesterday.
The five youth-edited associations of loosely partnering entrepreneurs we are trying to form with the hope that one gets close enough to jack ma to explain the other 4 in addition to sports are:
big data small tech wizards
green big bang
education starting with the very simple culture-interfacing idea of making second langiages 10 tiems more affordable for systainability goals youth to converse in- everywhere that china extends belt road project the soft power secret at any boder place is to set up dual language schools
and those who value everything that sir fazle abed did most to sustain in empowering girls to build bangladesh
Sorry that was long. If people dont like the whole idea but see things to leap forward with in eg womens empowerment subgroups please do but making sure amy can help with any chinese translation is simplest way to ensure scaling with all the chinese friends networks she has been taught to open space by her mentor harrison own Welcome to Open Space and scale collaboiratively and through the joy and hope of youth which right now in mr trumps america (and arguably the sceond worst media in the world after north koreas media) needs quite a lot of undercover work to safely but urgently re-open society for worldwide youth
I also have a question for Diva- She was india and the world's youngest participant at mattias' youth in development and in the last class to get president kalams youth award before his untimely death for exploring how etextiles on animals could monitor theiur wellbeing. Diva did you get to Harvard starting this month? I know a few people in Boston and 2 timelines are extremely urgent to all my chiense friends
India G20 2019
Mumbai 2018 AIIB and Green Big Bang Club update (2000 governors becnamrking how to race to thriving carbon zero economies - korea's signature gift to millennials world)
I belive the youth paricipant from the phillipines has a pivotal piece friends in beijing need so i will be writing something similar to her - say if anyone wants to join in
Thank you for all doing brilliant work in valuing youth openly
