Among many legacy problems inherited from British Empire across Asia; world war 2 had bankrupt Britain- so many colonies got independence with no transition. Arguably 50 hardest jobs ever pooped up: leading a new nation that had been a colony the day before; weirdly Bangladesh's short straw being assigned to pakistan to lead for 25 yeras 1947-1971 caused the innovation of aid 2.0 from 1971 - the nation's new gov barely had the revenues to organise 10% living in cities and national security : 90% rural peoples were left to networking Bangladesh Rural Advancement Cooperations-fortunatly they united around probably the most qualified and caring chartered accountant 20th C south asia would ever see; he would say it wasnt him but the wmen and those who chose to unite round gifts such as ortal rehydration - he knew where to search for community replicable solutions having been the regional ceo for royal dutch shell until half a million peopke around him were killed by a cyclone and as the work of immediate releif work turned to what next, shell sided with west pakistan army against independence movement- abed flew back to london to sell his putney flat (about 40000$), resign frok shell, and be ready to help with bottom up womens nations building - here are 5 intertgenerational solutions taking half a century to integrate - womens nation building of G1 funance G2 food security G3 health G4 ed G5 massive cooperation women emotional intel and resilience and a segway from centuries of no electricity to 21st C leapfrogging with mobile solar and SDG mapmaking cooperations uniting peoples futures
Purpose Questions from regarding.***Mass Collaborations to UN future summit 2023- are you tech wizard who can help us linkin New York & any other place where citizens demand sustainability for their children? rsvp
Educators needed to help with any of 30 collaborations making alumni of fazle abed the world's largest partnership in future of civil society and womens sustainability goals
do you have any connections with the netherlands- this is where abed's ideas on how bangladesh can share solutions/rural adaptations world needs on climate, and many ways of leapfrog social-business models 1 2 with technology both to end poverty, empower women, maximise middle class, progress both urban and rural youth can find optimal global partners
if you are interested in future of technology - look at this OECD paper -any questions?
** university graduate collaborations are the way to scale futures we need - do you work on 1) ultra poor, 2 playschool 3 anything else brac university and barcelona global university are celebrating worldwide 2022
Can you help us clarify (what Schumacher imagined as)  the greatest economic miracle by cataloguing  microfranchises and value chains designed round billion poorest village women across Asia; that's the eighth of the human population who raced over last half century to end extreme poverty whose historical "root cause"was how the British Empire had deprived much of Asian continent of access to the machine age that had started glasgow 1760; for 2 centuries access to engineering was mostly distributed where white empires gained...
we start catalogue of with Sir Fazle Abed BA Engineering Glasgow (brac) Bangladesh 1972 to 2019 - some dates are approximate - a date before 1996 means all instruction and people networking was done by word of mouth or by print where literacy existed; definition: by microfranchise we mean a (massively reporiceable) village busienss with positve cash flow however small but 1) so as to minimise risk to franchisee as long as she worked consistently as franchised and where the purpose was for most or all of the value to stay with the local producer; abed was quite happy to design franchises and once proven hand them over to government (because bangladesh began 90% rural the government initially had barely enough to serve citizens and national defences; later its taxation revenue could take over any microfranchise (eg schools) whose cashflow depended partly on grants; abed was always careful not to compete with government but civil society prioritised both rural keynsianism and entrepreneurial revolution by optmising microfranchise design and celebrating sustainable COLLABs;

Giant Leapfroging for womankind: after 1995 some partners brought solar and mobile (digitalisation of global villages meant "you can hear me now" for the first time in quarter of a millennium); also 2001 Abed started a university - at millennium goals parties in silicon valley, he had been asked to share his solutions worldwide...
and So Abed imagined how a university would enable millennials women empowerment to maximally co-create new solutions in line with the Abed/Schumpeter economic model as well as directly action learn how millennials raced to unite the first Sustainability Generation- we welcome corrections -errors are sollely mine - to start with 2 notes:probably abed's biggest mistake (which he enetreperenurially turned into a miracle) was spending his life savings on rebuilding 15000 village homes that had been flattened by wae; while sponsor oxfam ranked this as most effective relief project, Abed was mortified; tens of village mothers were dying weekly of starvation; scores of infants of diarrhea; he urgently had to design business solutions solving these local needs; once brac needed a central hub. one of its first operational services was a printing press

2018-2019 diary how to help brac most 3 world leaders have asked the wise summit (a format developed by Qatar's first lady Sheikha Moza) to bring best stuff from education to them in the next 12 months - since brac's sir fazle abed was the first of wise's 6 laureates -the question my friends are concerned with is how do we make sure all of 46 yeras of the best of brac is linked in 

i will increasingly post up any collabiration indes on this at

at ghana may 2018 main host president of ghana who also co-chairs the UN eminent advisers on sustainability goals

at un general assembly sept 2018, main host antonio guterres
; main conecerns refugee learning and all radical improvements education can make to a whole country's race to end poverty

march 2019 paris main host macron -who has become europe's nuber 1 leader valuing youth and has particular interests in climate as well as how paris can use olympics and other world stages to change the world

sir fazle abed advised me to keep debating this topic with his educational director at head office; i am just back in washington DC from a week at BRAC - prevuously my most recent visit was at sir fazle's 80th birthday when 2 chinese graduates introduced how keen china is to exchange girls led learning and edutech

i have had many discussions with friends at - they find that most national systems still dont encourage teachers or students to use eg khan academy - in china there is a very different story emerging around which now regularly stages live digital participation between 20000 students and their teachers and masterclass teachers selected from top schools - can you help with new york agency for global2.0 and wise@UNGA preview image - can you help with new york agency for global2.0 and wise@UNGA

dear ian , and friends i am sure people like amy and me in our different ways should be thanking you CHANGING LEARNING what we knew in 1984 without this 40 year map all sustainability goals are all greenwash? ; what we knew after sir fazle abed kindly...
