green big bang - wow thanks korea and everyone

Dear Bob cc Camilo Ed Amy 

Huge privilege for me today meeting you in bethesda - when muhammad yunus lost grameen bank he published the story of all his microsolar had gained from neville's intelligence so I  regard your and your founder neville williams as the origin of microsolar in the same way that 10 years of youth interviews in bangladesh has led me to believe sir fazle abed is the origin of girl empowerment and almost every other micro-profession solution (in the case of health shared with jim kim and paul farmer), and that the quadirs were the first to free bangladeshi villages with mobile leapfrogging partnerships. Additionally  your wife coming from taiwan and you speaking mandarin is a huge blessing given the hypothesis (which i will spend rest of my life on) that global youth's sustainability is now connected more with the  valuing sustainability alumni and youth economies   of the chinese than any other fifth of the world's people

(Sir Fazle Abed and the japan ambassador to dhaka were kind enough to host two 4-hour roundtables in 2012 in memory of my father from which we learnt about sir fazle's need to find an open learning platform and his race to build the world's largest cashless bank based on  mobile text - the second of these goals has been achieved thanks to the quadirs and their mit/dubai networks as well as the original mastermind of mpesa in kenya) 

As you asked me i will drop a line of introduction to lord stern in uk as he may be the best english speaking connector of green big bang club and is the only english speaking person i have so far found charged over next 12 months with interviewing the UN eminent leaders club so that their knowledge is circulate in mubai june 2018 second annual meeting of aiib and argentina g20 july 2018. I assume he will also blend prince charles knowhow networks from Home | Ashden  and the various bbc nature correspondents now on the case

Green Big Bang Club was launched last month at the first annual international gathering of 80 national delegations of AIIB (Asian Infratructure Investment Bank) . The goal of Green Big Bang Club is assembling 2000 place governors who wish to benchmark how their people can go to carbon. This club is basically korea's number 1 partnership commitment to china at very top levels of both country's leadership (few more notes on that to come). Since Japan Abe is not expected to last out Jinpings second 5 year term to 2022- south korea and china are pivotal to many of the world's greatest opportunities and risks in peace and energy. The island economy jeju hosting aiib 2017 this has recently upped its population from 100000 to 500000. As an autonomous region it is choosing its own education curricula and certification of graduates. It has a world class conference centre with gutsy events every month much like dubai's world trade center,

 May i first introduce you to Camilo, Ed and Amy all of whom from mid aigust will be within 8 blocks of columbia university in ny are doing extraordinary stuff which i hope could be won-win with you. They have been kind enough to suffer knowing me for quite a long time and their efforts are inspirational

So as i mentioned this morning camilo is at columbia but also has started up the wall street imperative fund- this aims to take 5000 rural people out of poverty at a time - its demonstration case is in rural mexico

CAMILO - bob's latest focus is taking 5000 rural people totally solar at a time- and is being run particularly in haiti; in addition bob and neville have designed the world first 2 year curriculum of solar and green from the community up. This has its first wave of students starting now

ED started deep development work in south sudan in the early 1970s; today he leads the collaboration network World Possible - with intel and others this catalogues all completely open learning contents such as khan academy - and helps african schools and other test this through the rachel device - which permits up to 50 class or others in the same room look at all open learning content. 

Amy and i first met virtually in a change the world mooc segment of jim kim. Her first trip outside china celebrated the 16th creative children olympiads - a week long event on the white house elipse 2015 leading up to july 4. Since the launch of the UN sustainability goals she has been shuttling between us and china events and picking up practical experiences on the way:
during sir fazle abed's 80th birthday party last spring, sir fazle abeds family asked her to help pilot a sino-bangladesh girls newsletter
harrison owen has trained her to host 5000 conflict-busting people events he calls open space technology
she will be at columbia university studying quite close to jeffrey sachs from mid august
she attended the launch of gordon brown jim kim and jack ma's at un last september
she's also visited dubai and her main peer friend at tsinghua unoiversity helps link in all relevant uae youth summits
she's connected with the youth ambassador networks at vatican university and knows the lead group at organisation of american states who colaunched youth in development summits with jim kim in dc

Could i ask  you to converse or share any information in any ways that suit; bob i know you said understanding camilo's 5000 person approach sounded one first talking point

I am recommending anyone who value bottom up girl empowerment curricula map back how to influence g20 at argentina summer 2018- the g20 does 362 days of homework with citizens and students groups. This is the only franciscan values summit of the foreseeable future that China can massively influence. Jack Ma has already been dispatched to argentina to make this the second international country after malaysia on his sme free E world trade platform. The presidents if argentina and chile (michelle bachelet - prevuosly the founder of unwomen foundation financed by ted turner) are the main south american leaders turning up at jinpings belt road forum.

In DC the previous ceo of brookings established 2 remarkable relationships. He founded brookings inside tsinghua university and appointed its leadership under the main beijing organiser of green think tanks. In Dc he promoted the main chinese american biographer Cheng Li of jinpings diary and and of thinktanks. You can seen cheng li's CGTN interview last week with their number 1 female broadcaster Tian Wei geared to maximiing sino-us friendships no matter what. Cheng Li says the one thing Xi Jinping doesnt know how to do the right way is to meet pope francis and eg include his green encyclical in the middle of all the action debriefings now that china has to lead paris climate actions - note jack ma has made alibaba main olynpics sponsor tokyo-paris-la since green missions will be his main new edge from 2019

for those who might say i am overoptimistic about xi jinping i would ;point to 3 things
-china had to be the sustainability connector according to me fathers work at the economist as early as 1977

-it feels to me as if jinping now has more people working on earth race to sustainability than kennedy had for the moon race in 1960s- this is through thinktanks that neither get interrupted by bipiolar politics nor by short-term corporatism (bad banking)

you only need to track cgtn to see every day investigative journalism on ;positive solutions of global 2.0 which in every way makes usa media look dismal-bordering-on big brother terrifying- investing in 1000 times more commns tech 2016 versus 1946 only ever could spin one of 2 ways - lets make sure its littelsister empowerment or what china calls "women lift up half the sky"

Bob if there's any way i can be of use relaying your good news etc at any time please tell me. Its great that we live 10 minutes away from each other.

bob could you help choose which of any of this draft below i send in introducing lord nicholas stern   (cgtn) to you- he is the second last english speaking person with credibility in beijing according to my 6 visits to beijing and digging around that chinese students like amy have worked tirelessly on  - his relationship with jim kim can also be enough to get to jack ma

 the thing is stern remembers my dad well as they commuted back to wimbledon once a week in the 1980s (when he was young and my dad in his 60s) a shared late night taxi even though as the most conscientious of labour researchers (the intellect that blair and then gordon brown relied on most as the 2000s became labors decade in UK) he probably found my dads ideas at The Economist weird- i only got 3 minutes with lord nicholas at korea aiib2017 last month and of course he had hundreds of more important people to talk to- i think it may be best if i am positioned as the fool with a story i wont let go while you and he work on some practical intervention


Dear Lord Nicholas

 Please may i introduce you to bob freeling (my neighbor in bethesda MD) and the practice source of microsolar girls freedom/happiness networking

My fathers last youth journalism project 2007-2010 while cancer took over his body was very painful because he sent me with young journalists from many cultures to interview muhammad yunus in bangladesh 10 times. We had hoped to launch a publication with adam smith scholars at july 4th 2010 event where Glasgow University had spent hundreds of thousands on promoting Yunus as keynoted of 250th yera of publication of adma smiths moral sentiments but dad died 3 weeks too soon

For all of us yunus was a hero because making end poverty as world famous as who won sporting world cups took the greatest passion and storytelling my family have ever documented across 4 generations of media and mediation people including sir kenneth kemp who as chief justice of mumbai worked 25 years with gandhi- grandads last job being writing up legalese of india's independence

but what the young people all found was that none of yunus stories actually identified the innovation sources; most of the scaling of pre-digital bangladesh had been done by sir fazle at brac not grameen on its own- micro solar skills came (in direct briefings to yunus) from bob and neville williams self network, mobile phones came from the quadirs at mit and legatum

ironically my father and i had published the first risk of greenwashing  genre in sustaining global partnership (now called SD goal 17) in 1988 after i had spent a decade with mit database technology helping compile social needs of thousands of markets across 50 countries

in 2008 -9 it took me more time than it should to have discovered was that microcreditsummit- the original millennial goals summit from 1997 had been taken over by greenwashing even though its founding supporters had been european royals specifically prince charles (still championing green microenergy every year at Home | Ashden ) and queen sofia; although obama's mother had done heroic microcredit work in indonesia he didnt actually understand its implication versus the big banking crisis 

the error of microcreditsummit was each year had to be self-funded; increasingly it got funded by the big bad banks and their ipos of microcredit; and increasinigly it pressurised it keynoters like yunus to fund raise- there was no mechanism to build a curriculum of knowhow from summit to summit- in america there is not one top 20 college that lets students truly study how bangladesh empowered girls to build the 8th most populous nation

i believe that talking to sir fazle, bob and the quadirs now is absolutely critical for all future world leadership summits that want to empower youth with action learning from each community up

the triangularisation of girls, first time to access electricity, the first time to have communications (mobile) with reset of the world is the greatest economic and global villages freedom story ever- even if aiib itself has many other priorities these 3 deadlines are also mission critical for  sustainability class of 2017-2018

1 the host in jeju's green big bang network aims not just to connect 2000 carbon zero governors but to use jeju 's place freedom to assemble green curricula/certificates that connect with whole truth- sustainabuility MBA if you wish

2 jack ma spent much of the year before china's g20 summit in 2016 turning all the business20 homework into valuing sme's in every global market; download small enterprise china g20 report chaired by ALI BABA JACK MA -and see why greatest #learinggeneration thanks hangzhou in happiest collaboration opportunities ever played
the opportunity for some group to green20 on road to g20 in argentina july 2018 - the franciscan home of all empowerment models including yunus, sir fazle and jim kim is once in a lifetime

3 lastly because of brexit and trump much  knowhow cultural and scientific and coded only translatable through english will get lost unless the few brits entirely trusted in beijing start turning media like the bbc back into celebrating the values of parenting, live, safe communities- the bbc turned out to be the final straw in discrediting everything that could have been shared with students on bangladeshi girl empowerment; if it is also the last western straw in blocking chinese sharing goodwill and green livelihoods it will be the greatest world dis-service of all

lord stern- hope you and bob can talk and distribute far more sense than ever i can 

best to all, chris
