Its fascinating comparing stories of Fazle Abed (TeachFor.net stories) who got the opportunity to build most of a new nation's education system and Wendy Kopp who has linked together over 60 nations where graduate teachers are asking what purpose can education serve if there is to be a sustainability generation
TeachFor.net Story SDG0: Do you know the story of the marketer of the world's number 1 life saving cure? You might expect him to be the world's richest man. #Shetoo Instead he became sustainable womankind's number 1 Collaborations champion. This most exciting of all human interest stories gravitates inconvenient truths (see why churchill coined this phrase, gore adopted it to mobilise client crisis movements but missed its meaning to health servants) -there's no sustainable purpose in being a nobel judge, no whole truth in claim to be a world leader of human rights, mental health problems in being a millennials superstar, no evidence of being an economist worth trusting, waste of your life as a teacher if you cannot do mappng searches of the difference between family networks knowing and collaboratively connecting this cure, and those in this 21st C still in ignorance of it.
Life saving marketing's inconvenient truth stems from seeing humans living in the tropics (expected to be half the world) cannot develop without this cure or access to electricity grids (lots of energy needed to stay coll in a place that is humid day and night). When you look at the G8 biggest empires that fought world war 2 you will find all their capitals are north of the tropics. Not a cent of all the paper money they print goes directly to linking in this life saving cure's practice network- even the development economics world failed to trickle down a cent until our greatest marketing hero had made the good news multipliers of saving lives the number 1 currency og asia's poorest vilage mothers (wh became billiongirls.com)
Today, this may explain how these same G8 leaders (and 7 of their notions of democracy -ie us canada uk france germany italy japan EU (yup i kow that's 8 but the EU cheats in double conuting its bureaurats importance) bear the most responsibility for not stopping covid. They still dont understand health networking where the massive frailest populations multiply connectivity fastest.. OK the man who marketed this life saving cure was far more polite than I am about fake economists, fake professions and politicial rivalries, fake media men, fake celebrities et al. But since he died 2 years ago (20 Dec 2019), and since at least one leading scot who mediated 2020-1760 age of humans and machines died of this disease (founder of the economist james wilson) and since "only teachers can sustain humanity is the main lesson by family were gifted by john von neumann with my dadd being his biographer- when morals and politeness crash into species extinction i chose morals over politeness. I am just a maths guy. If you want to fame me for rudeness, sure i deserve that. If you want to tell me the intel of the world's number 1 life saving sure isnt relevnt to how technolgists humanise artificial intelligence- let 3.75 billions under 30s be our judges.
50 years ago, in 1972, The Economist called for (and updated in dialogues to 1993's Sweden's New Vikings) an Educational Entrepreneurial Revolution so that millennials' 20 year old graduates of the 2020s could celebrate being the first truly sustainable generation> This would need the greatest collaborations of all time as far as mother nature was concerned, and as far as 3 generations of humanity without borders would be concerned: today's under30, parents, and grandparents. While nature has always been bodreless as minimal data on climate shows, 2025 completes the 6 decade of 100 times more borderless tech being the legacy of john von neumann. In the first 100 fold leap, leaders of next generation inspiration chose the moon race to celebrate how soon no mission would be impossible. When we hit 2025 that will be a trillion times moore- where have leaders of borderless trust in our youths futures gone?
Two clear and present hypotheses mediated the coming global readership from 1972:
von neumann's legacy of 100 times moore tech per decade was in full swing - the west coast hub around intel rebranded itself silicon valley- its ai crown jewel stanford was in its 12 yeae as pacific coast lab twinned with MIT's east coast. Stanford had a lot to catch up with coding wise- it was mit women who coded moon landing
...come back soon if you want a guided tour through every continent on the magic bicyclical ride to sustaining kids, teachers and so all of us (some early cluetrails economistwomen.com abedplay.com teachforscotland.org ecop26.com 2025report.com - surviving co-author 1984 updates of the economist's first 140 years of smithian moral mapmaking email@example.com
by the 2020s the most valuable knowhow of both teachers and teens would change every 3 years- think about that put college students in debt to get a bit of paper examining perfection the way an old non-adaptive professors mind finds convenient will do one of 2 things - it will send you nation into being undeveloped as far as sustainability generation are concerned or make your nation the leader of extinction
The good news is 50 years of studying education's entrepreneurial revolution has been searched out by the world's poorest women and those who relentlessly valued collaborating with them - the greatest COLLABs earth has ever seen a species empower

If you are curious 3 of humanity's 4 most exciting summits of education revolution are on replay - peculiarly the one mainly convened by the united nations hasn't yet clarified its online presence. Meanwhile 2021 is the 50th birthday of Bangladesh where the whole of aid was changed by village mothers into platforms for collaboration entrepreneurial revolution with the help of probably the world's greatest ever educator Fazle Abed (first WISE laureate , inspiration of Yidan Luminaries ... and the greatest economist never to be a Nobel)
Story 1 - i am just a maths guy- probably in the bottom 10% of MA's from Cambridge DAMTP where such as steve hawkings used to run us over with a wheel chair traveling at 12 mph in extraordinary narrow corridors of mill lane's 1972 building. In 1989 I got a chance to help research her were the world's greatest maths greats educated - dad was doing von neumann's biography whose promise of 100 tikes more tech per decade he had scooped back in 1955. So the greatest maths minds of all time were home schooled by a street of merchants until they were 5th grade when in john's case he entered budapest gymnasium the best maths class of his age the city could provide.
worldrecordjobs tip 1 - we accept that practice makes sports wizards Csikszentmihalyi has studied brilliantly skillful people - their secret in plain sight: maximise experiential edge of unique competence- having met von neumann my father coined term post-industrial revolution in the economist (some now call this industrial revolution 3 as places who blend tech and human school designs to maximise experiential learning)- whats hopeful is this an above zero sum game unlike consuming up things. We don't need to compete between nations for millennial youth to maximise community enriching skills let alone sustainability. What is it above washington dc political barons of all sides that makes them waste our youth so.
When you look at how maths is taught in usa (which i have as my daughter grew up here ) you do wonder - is american education designed never again to value maths minds like von neumann's and what does that tell you. No Mr Biden its not china's fault usa has chosen not to train any extraordinary maths minds -there's something very wrong in the DC climate with how bureaucrats of all parties have designed schooling fir where 100 times more engineering code evert decade determined what human innovations valuing community sustainability mattered. Now of course 400 billion dollars into playschools could be extraordinary but please dont let the same failed adminstrators design the schools- 20 years of work now in 50 countries has piloted playschools -abedplay.com
Story 2: This years Yidan Prize has roped in 2019's 2 economics nobel prize winners to ask will it be 4th time lucky for 6 year old children who grow up in south asia- thats where one quarter of the worlds' youth grow up. They were unlucky in 1860 when the Scot Queen Victoria sent over to Calcutta died within 9 months of landing of diarrhea; when from 1906 the penny dropped on Gandhi that his profession bar of london barrister applied laws designed to stunt his own people (intriguingly instead of confrointing London immediately Gandhi aimed at total redesign of education recognising the empire system of graded standard exams is designed to throw out 99% as not being fit to adminster empire- in discovering maria montessori, Gandhi had found the ticket for every indian child to be valued but he was neither able to see that gift blossom i Independent India and worse at the last moment of designing national boders the 2 great trading pors then called bombay and calcutta were partitioned off so tow pakistans were born blocked off from world trade -that was never gandhi's map of the future nor my grandfather who wrote up the legalese of indi's independence) . Yidan is incidentally billionaire hubbing 21st c education's futures for all out of Hong Kong a city that knows more than anywhere how much the locations and upbringing of youth at our world's superports determines the futures of all of us.
