March 2014 Update on Architecture of Youth Jobs Summits

First,  World Bank's Jim Kim transcripts- these are as exciting as anything I can find on youth summits and urgent advice on how social movements can be sustained if we value youth economics - of course I welcome knowing alternate sources

The other is my own very rough view of architecture of Youth Summits -some of the colliding systems that need rearranging bottom up and openly if net generation is to be most productive, sustainable and collaborative time for youth all over the planet. Just a discussion document ( In many ways online versions of this document are easier to discuss than printed but great to know if parts of it make sense and other parts need more clarification!)

Many thanks

The world's first change the world mooc can be evaluated from many perspectives - which explain how difficult it can be to identify the missing curriculum of job creation for the net generation

As just one contrasting example - see top21 people of 2014 youthare recommended to action learn with by friends of my family's work on moderating the entrepreneurial revolution curriculum started in The Economist in 1972 

This is the wiki of the course  (1st week of march 2014 corresponding to last week of first rendering of this course which had been billed as an opportunity to learn from the september 2013 social good summit new york)- would welcome doing a skype tour of it if anyone is concerned about where we can go next

Critical Thinking in Global Challenges (University of Edinburgh, option to earn a verified certificate)
This introductory course will give you the opportunity to better understand what critical thinking is, and to practice and enhance your critical thinking skills. To do so, we will use the context of some important global challenges that affect us all, and to which we have no clear “correct” solutions: for example, the implications of increasing human population on global resources, energy, environment and climate. 
The course starts on January 20, 2014 (5 weeks long; 1-2 hours/week).
Click here for the detailed course description: 

How to Change the World (Wesleyan University)
How to Change the World has its origins in the Social Good Summit held in New York, which brought together some of the world's most creative entrepreneurs, writers, academics and political leaders to discuss ways innovative thinking and technology can address pressing global challenges. We will discover together what actions we can take to make a difference. 
The course starts on January 20, 2014 (6 weeks long; 3-5 hours/week). 
Click here for the detailed course description: 

The Age of Sustainable Development (Columbia University, with Jeffrey Sachs)
This course provides an introduction to the interdisciplinary field of sustainable development, drawing on the most recent developments in the social, policy, and physical sciences. The fundamental question is how the world economy can continue to develop in a way that is socially inclusive and environmentally sustainable.
This course starts on January 21, 2014 (5 weeks long; 6-7 hours/week).
Click here for the detailed course description: 

How Green Is That Product? An Introduction to Life Cycle Environmental Assessment (Northwestern University, option to earn a verified certificate)

Turn Down the Heat: Why a 4°C Warmer World Must be Avoided (World Bank)
It is now becoming clear that without necessary climate action, the world may become 4°C warmer by the end of this century. As this threatens to roll back decades of development progress, this is a ‘make or break’ point. This course presents the most recent scientific evidence as well as some of the opportunities for urgent action. 
The course starts on January 27, 2014 (4 weeks long; 3-6 hours/week). 
Click here for the detailed course description: 

Globalization and You (University of Washington)
This course is perhaps more focused on economic globalization, but there are some interesting learning elements in it that are very relevant to climate change, e.g. on governance, resources and urbanization. This course offers an evidence-based analysis of globalization that addresses what is happening to us personally as well as economically. 
The course starts on March 31, 2014 (4 weeks long; 3-6 hours/week).
