Collaboration Microwiki of Youth Capitalism
What is a Microwiki?
Its our name for a family of googledocs which:
1 Use the Gdoc like a wiki linking youth's most active project foci
2 Make league tables of next solutions ready for inter-community replication - we call these microfranchises and believe the clearest design criteria for these has been explained by Sir Fazle Abed (though tell us if you have a clearer mentor of maximum 9 minute training modules -the format we survey for million youth viralisation)
3 Ours search aims to linkin projects of what Jim Kim has called the 2 defining social movements of the net generation #2030 and youth jobs summits
The slides show some of the emerging clusters - for example
how can education most help youth create jobs
We are passionate about the C-word of MOOC - I value it as much about collaboration as course and curriculum. It seems to me that the 3 C's together with massive Open Online are defining entrepreneurial opportunities of the net generation. Our Entrepreneurial Revolution search for Net Generation is something my father at The Economist and I first started researching in 1972 - my first job being at what was then called The UK National Development project for Computer assisted learning.
My father's main job as a journalist of youth capitalism and deputy editor of The Economist : facilatation of leadership/innovation/investment discussions of the net generation 1975-2025 being the biggest opportunity and risk to human sustainability.
Those who design system to integrate millions of communities into a worldwide value exchange have known since 1975 that the net generation is more likely to compound either 10 times better or 10 times worse freedoms for 99% of peoples livelihoods- not something in between. The worse endgame remains clearly written up in literature as early as Orwell's Big Brother. The positive explorations are what the curriculum of Entrepreneurial Revolution started in The Economist in 1972 tries to charter.
2018 sees the 175th year of The Economist being founded to mediate an end to hunger and an end to capital abuse of youth, It is this context that I recommend a clearing house catalogue Collaboration Microwiki of Youth Capitalism
Attached are links to some early cases but please look at this as survey. If you see a big hole- in other words if the most collaborative youth movement source you believe in isnt mentioned- consider starting up a microwiki and telling us where to find it
20th annual Survey of top 30 ways students and mobile vilage mothers can create jobs
2015 will be the 20th yera that technolgy partners were invited by vilage mothers to explore the greatest life critical applications that they could mobilise and which youthworldbanking (eg gramen, brac , som members of gabv.org ) can invest in. This started by turing one vilage mother per 60 into a village to vilage human yellow pages through delivering the most affordable mobile phone service ever rented. (Grameen phone) Apps for every ;life critoiac dream of youth futures can now be found by surveying Bangaldesh and the other earliest nations of freeing mobile infsratructires for the most life developing solutions (Kenya is a world leade out of Africa). China is an extremely interesting case because it depends whether it will adapt the most joyful early experinecs of youth world banking from eg Bangladesh. Savvy global brand leaders are helping China and Banagldesh connect such youth entrepreneurial revolution - see eg Danone experiments in this field and debriefings shared with MIT Dlab

Youth Capitalism is the movement inspired by Keynes' General Theory that economists should design systems so that capital structures family savings into their next generation's productivity. This learning network started In The Economist in 1972 when we started 20 years of Future History debates on why the Net Generation would be the most critical time for Entrepreneurship and Valuing Youth's Exponential Sustainability.
