Girls Sustainability ABC – Asia, BRAC @ Bangladesh, China
Man has just landed on the moon but back on planet earth imagine hundreds of square miles where communities of people have next to nothing. They have been flattened by a cyclone that killed half a million people and a war of independence. Their new nation is the poorest but one of the ten most populous in the world. During the region’s history of colonization, electricity grids never reached these people – they were not part of what the empire wanted from the trade it designed.
WHERE GOAL 1 IS POVERTY ALLEVIATION
In such communities, what adults as well as children can directly train each other in is life critical. Education networks of this sort are anchored in practical skills much of which are far removed from sitting all day in a classroom. In the 2010s when a job creating genius like Jack Ma says that over half of youth will be unemployable if they are just confounded to classroom education, we suggest that the world is extremely fortunate that there remains one 100 million person alumni network with community-based learning origins: BRAC@Bangladesh
This leaflet celebrates an exploration of the value multipliers of community-based education empowered by the fairer sex. Due to colonial and other consequences BRAC @ Bangladesh is mother earth’s deepest (global-for-local) hub for innovating solutions to many of the most pressing challenges of the 17 sustainability goals that the United Nations has prioritized as collaboratively urgent by 2030.. If you are a parent we invite you to promote joyful awareness of this collective experience as a critical success factor for the half of the world aged under 30 if they are to be the sustainability goals generation.
This publication is part of a 50 year media retrospective of friends and family of The Economist’s Norman Macrae who was inspired in 1968 by the imminent moon landing to launch fiercely optimistic debates on technology’s coming “Entrepreneurial Revolution” around mother earth.- a movement that became dad’s life work until his parting in 2010. firstname.lastname@example.org
