i will start with asking ed resor to phone you - ed coordinates open learning contents Module Search - OER2Go - The Web Unplugged  - it would be great imo to see arctic content there
From everything I can see there are huge win-wins with your goals and various chinese elearning platforms, AI teachers assistants, big data for youth analysis and community-deep research areas - ultimately tsinghua university and jack ma are the most connected epiecentres but i think 2 people who are semi-dc based can help arrange contacts and/or clarify if my optimisim is correct
cheng li at brookings - i will see if he will let me book a meeting
mary young who usually lets me book a meeting when she is in dc - but who is in beijing to memorial day- I will see if she heels able to take Q&A online
From my experience of the tufts summit that max has several years of arranging there are many youth who want to connect elearning platforms - maybe max can clarify what is best way to help them linkin
When it comes specicfcally to polar-nature knowledge i will write a leter to cousteau to see if he knows how to access my friend paul rose who is bbc ocean and polar explorer and in middle of uk people which go up to prince charles as well as across britiish council climate champions etc
At Economistdiary.com I try to maintain diary of leadership summits which impact all the things we talked about - much is converging theough 2 summits whose main contents are being chose by UN emiinent committee which includes Norway's Solberg

1 at united nations general aasssembly sept 2018 where guterres has asked best elearning for refugees and other excluded youth 
2 macron paris march 2019 which i assume will have a lot on climate - also my daugther is an undergraduate in education and french so i have personal motovation to maximise french networks over next 12 months
Additionally Canada's Trudeau and Jack Ma are extremely close as can be seen at how they hosted 3000 people training at toronto recently Gateway '17
Fathers last 2 projects sponsored over 20 visists by youth journalists to china and bangladesh
Some chinese students at columbia and oxford have been asked to help reposition bangladesh's girl empowerment networks round BIllion Girls Boys Alumni - ie the billion youth who most need community livelihood education because their communities face the most extreme sustainability challenges - this is where my frends in Bangladesh  brac. - a guide to collaboration's best for the world organisations are already responsible for up to 150 million village alumni mainly female
My understanding is that education (his reponsibility for half a billion under 30s livelihoods) is one of 4 things xi jinping always discusses when he convenes leadership summits even if this doesnt show up so much in recently published polar belt road- i am expecting may 2019 beijing summit  Belt Road 2 to connect the 100 national and rghional leaders who can invest most in sustaining youth
If i can be of help clarifying anything very happy to try ( I do not claim to understand all the politics going on round DC  - any optimism errors are mine alone)
