some thoughts from discussions around yunus and youth:
1 yunus believes forestry could be a huge social business - one region he is advancing that in is Haiti
4 grameen has just published the grameen nursing college curriculum - this could be world changing as it is arguably the first curriculum every published by a real university service that aims to be as nearly free as possible; cf with online curriculum which start from being free!
7 it has been projected that bangladesh will be first 100 million nation to be drowned by climate change if we don't launch enough green energy 1 in time - naturally this makes friends of yunus world leaders in mapping green energy microfranchises
8 sanitation is a change world leadership practice led by yunus friinds in singpaore - see jack sim www.worldtoilet.org - jack hosted the first singapore social business week in 2012 with university partner national uni of Singapore which is also a coursera parter

The other revolutionary mooc movement starting in sept 2013 is aligned to attempts by networks around George Soros to rethink economics from the bottom up -cuuriculum 1 being money
Soros has also been a fan of bangaldeshi extreme entrepreneurial networks since 1996 or earlier. It was he who provided the funds for Yunus to experiment with ending digital divides with mobile phones in the village creating Bangladesh's largest company Grameen Phone and it is Soros who celebrated the 20th annual Open Society Laureate (Budapest June 2013) as Sir Fazle Abed- founder of BRAC the only grassroots network in the world that has sustained more microfranchise solutions to how communities of mothers and girls can end poverty than Grameen.…

Bangladesh was born in 1971- Brac in 1972; the grameen project born in 1976
5 4 3 2 1 Human Races to End Poverty
Race 1 circa 1972-1979 Having gained independence as a nation in a bloody war with what is now called Pakistan, Bangladesh was a country with less infrastructure than any other; it got hit by a cyclone that caused a local tsunami killing twice as many people as the 2004 SE Asia Tsunami, and then a million people died of famine. Out of these 2 disasters were born, what in a life of searching innovation systems, are my and dad's votes for the 2 most purposeful systems in the world: BRAC & Grameen. By 1979 BRAC was already proving itself as most empowering local-up NGO and Grameen was testing a concept of how the world's poorest people could own their bank, and what goals would they define in their race to end poverty in groups of 60 village women each designed round a space called a village centre for mutual development as well as individual entrepreneurial exchange. Race 2 Circa 1980-1987Grameen bank was incorporated by law as being owned by the rural poor in 1983 and quickly proved its sustainability spreading branches through Rural Bangladesh not just in helping the poorest women in the world to become income generating, or in encouraging savings accounts after a year of which the poorest illiterate woman became a shareholder in her bank, but in designing communal investment solutions- eg the most basic housing design to have a monsoon proof roof, a cyclone-proof stability, and a pit latrine for hygiene. Almost immediately awarded the Aga Khan prize for architecture, Grameen went on to issue 700,000 sub-sub prime loans not one of which harmed the bank's record as earning the safest repayment ratings in banking history. Meanwhile, BRAC started to design whole industry value chains multiplying from the bottom up. Race 3 Circa 1988-1995Grameen Trust started proof testing worldwide viability of microcredit and friends of Bangladesh briefed the president elect Clinton in late 1992 of howBangladesh was pioneering the best models ever sustained for ending poverty. Ideas for millennium goals were planted which most of the world's leaders pledged the new millennium and networking generation’s united goals around. The Great and the Good started to pay field visits to Bangladeshi villages including the extraordinary Queen Sofia of Spain, and Hillary Clinton. Over in Indonesia, a pioneering developer of microcredit was the mother of a future American President - Barack Obama.Race 4 1996-2001Inside Bangladesh , 1996 saw Grameen investing the poor's money in mobile telephony and solar energy. The exponential impacts of both become more extraordinary by the day. The immediate impact was what had previously been largely separated village centres became the most extraordinary hub network - today 140000 Grameen Village centres are ending digital divides. And, Bangladesh is now a world lead in mobile network architectures - see eghttp://www.grameensolutions.com and http://bracnet.net International microcreditsummit was launched with a goal within a decade to reach 100 million poorest families around the world with banking for the poor. While grassroots microcredit networks did indeed connect up , the world's big leaders got distracted from their millennium goals with tragic conflicts spiraling. Instead of a humanly empowering start to the 21st century, globalisation took on a form remarkably similar to the way the 20th century started in Europe.Race 5 2002-2008Can the world’s greatest end-poverty networking systems also be humanity's great peacemakers. Nobel Peace jury bravely thought so. And what emerged wasDr Yunus inviting the world to come and study the missing system link that Bangladesh had designed during race 1 - the world's only true sustainability investment modeling. This brings us to the greatest human race 2009-2015. Will the net generation make poverty museums our very own space race. The system designs are their . The collaboration networking medium of internet and microsummit are there. Yes We Can needs to to help connect it.

ER1 what sort of organizational systems )multi-win business models) can sustain 21st c net generation given 20th c largest systems (gov corporate ngo) are all unsustainable (built around extracting and peculating over scarcity not celebrating abundancy of how knowledge multiplies value in use and when truly networked) -what if the us (while it was still richest nation) had sponsored even one open education network since 1984 with as much gisto as it sponsored racing to moon in 1960s?
Best real spaces for citizens to discuss this vary by city - eg the disastrous capital washingtin dc is trying to linkin round conscuus capitalism; European movemnets include club of city models - eg Paris -rsvp firstname.lastname@example.org if your city has a best of kind citizen network
--we are trying to accelerate missing curriculum of entrepreneurial revolution for massive open collaboration
-metanetworks of microfranchises remain badly misundersttod- millennium goal summits like microcreditsummit has ruined what could have been 13 years of understanding how the world's deepest microcredits attracted 100+ microfrancisies each; hub incubator models remain depressing personal networks
With the first Soros alumn MOOC on missing pro-youth economics starting 1 sept 2013 - and the brilliant progress of khanacademy on maths and sharing community healthcare knowhow, the next few quarters may be make or break in terms of whether next decade can be most productive and collaborative for youth - help need to linkin top 100 leaders of youths most productive decade with open education content editors; lets keep forward momentum going by callin g for all post 2015 millenniu gopal meets to converge around microeducationsummit

Will Brazilian people keep up their protest of being promotional stage for sportstars still separate from real heroes of youth futures
ER5 ENERGY: Rotten government by vested interest politicians: continues to miss every opportunity to unite the world around clean energy collaboration. Even after Japans nuclear meltdown, not many governments have owned up to how all nuclear power is a way of passing on risk to next generation
favorite clicks: photosynthesis by norman macrae, khanacademy, and why not you http://ashden.org number 1 in microenergy prizes; http://gshakti.org - grameen's energy microfranchise is on a moores law - one million solar units installed- doubling every 3 years
ER6 Health: designing affordable healthcare and nutrition is left to open education channels with mass media still destroying real freedom of speech on these innovation
ER7 Bank: with a few exceptions, western banking remains a totally bereft of pro-youth purpose - having abandoned the community sustaining models that 99% of citizens need most and whose cost of transactional operation could by now be 99% less thanks to technology
gladesh is off grid relying on kerosene as its main way to light up; so yunus barefoot power engineers main initial targets weren't the poorest but those who could do the most in the village with solar powered electricity; yunus was prepared to build the village engineering networks of clean energy however long it took - nearly 10 years before it got on a rising exponential ; today grameen skakti has passed 1 million solar installatuions and is doubling total installed every 3 years; while the core network of about 1000 barefoot engineers are the foundations, thee are increasingly finding ways to teach village girls to do such tasks as after sales maintenance of solar panels (see the photo on the last article my father The Economists's pro-youth economist and 1984 futuriser of the net generation wrote- consider Bangladesh)
whenever grameen integrates a new service it is always wise to ask how do children gain from this because as well as being members daily community bank it is mothers investment bank in their next generation- children now have few extra hours studying time thanks to light where previously it was pitch dark
back in 2005 yunus wrote a pamphlet on Bangladesh growing up with giant neighbours especially china- his plan to swap the greatest sustainability solutions that grameen and other true micronetworks of the poor microfranchised with the Chinese so building hi-trust trading links between the 2 nations
help yunus mooc all he knows now on clean energy networking - as well as a million solar unitys, grameen is doubling and redoubling ist sales of improved cokking stoves- with far less dirty smoke, the answer to the question how does this benefit children and mothers is litearlly that these stives are a huge health advantages- saving young lungs that would previously have got sooted up
late last year brookings hosted an event on clean energy in china- tee expert was from the Bejing thinktank on energy- asked whether the time was right as far as the Chinese authorities were concerned to massively share microsolar knowhow with vil;agers across China - he took in a deep breadth and said precisely right
e Economist diarised the curriculum of youth economics and sustainability's exponential crisis of whether the first net generation would be empowered to collaborate around millennium goals- a question raised in our 1984 future history of net generation)
While dad died in 2010, ER 5 year plan to 2018 is the most critical to sustaining global village youth everywhere. Dad's last project began with Muhammad Yunus in 2007 and has involved me in 20 interviews of Dr Yunus including 10 in Bangladesh. We have hosted various birthday wish parties around Dr Yunus including one in Dhaka that reconnected Grameen and BRAC; and one in Glasgow University where Adam Smith Scholars and Yunus celebrated the first 250 yeras of the curriculum of Moral Sentiments
I am trying to research the various youth summits, open education platforms and citizen chapters (eg conscious capitalism and women4empowerment) that could converge around the Future Capitalism of Youth
I briefly talked to Mr Alhendawi at the World Bank youth summit -and understand the next in this series will be co-hosted with UN in New York. Our Foundation helped as a minor sponsor of the opening event in Atlanta's Nov 2015 goals to show that youth jobs summits can be more impactful than the Olympics. 12 Nobel Laureates, the families of Yunus, Ted Turner, Jimmy Carter, Luther King are committed to Atlanta twinning Youth capitals around the world- and halfway along the road to Atlanta the Nobel Laureate summit connects through Cape Town Oct 2014. I am researching other summit as collaboration processes (not just the event themselves) including G20Y, Paris's convergences2015, microcreditsummit, the EU social enterprise summit
Two unique dynamics that Normans Friends seek to connect this information round are:1) how to help youth and microfranchise networks such as Grameen, BRAC, Jamii Bora spread missing curriculum of youth economics through moocs and khan academy type platforms2) how to convince shareholders of The Economist that 20-18's 175th anniversary of The Economist should get back to the founder's goal of mediating an end to hunger-as well as how to positively involve China - a plan my father started to debate in The Economist from 1975
If Mr Alhendawi isnt available would there be someone who edits your newsletters and forward diaries of events that youth can join in that I could meet?

BRAC -the world's largest and most openly collaborative ngo - is the benchmark Norman Macrae Youth Foundation loves most to help peoples value by looking at its open microfranchise solutions first - by and for grassroots networks celebrating youth's greatest job creating pusrpoeses with such entrepreneurial practice freedoms as
banks for jobs
health locally for all

open technology -Bangladeshi village youth are the greatest wizards at life critical apps as they have been twinning life critical social labs and mobile connectivity for longer than anyone else thanks to George Soros providing a free loan to make village phones connect the disconnected
open education designed around learning a living
Some of the extremely affordable and innovative pro-youth economic system designs BRAC has mapped to facilitate youth's and communities' greatest collaboration purposes are shown
go through every different market sectors and you will find the needs of the top 1% are different than the rest of us and though they are only 1% of humanity their purchasing power either in the majority of the most profitable segment. Over time the needs of all of the rest of the peoples have been ignored. As Norman Macraé's last article in 2008 described: this was the big lesson in both the banking and global professional/political meltdowns of the 2000s . The rich want banks that speculate on finding the one in 10000 start up that sustains 30% returns annually (until its so anorexic of human ability that you can make a killing by shorting it). This kind of organistion model is the last sort in the world that the rest of us wanted by and for the net generation to be 10 times more productive than ever before especially on collaborating around the millennium's most uman goals
Most of the rest of us want community banks where our savings as parnents will invest in next generation's porooductivity out of the places we have brought our children up in.
Interesting the revolutionary economic paradigm of grassroots Bangladesh networks talked about by Charlie Rose and Bill Clinton provides the most exciting model of banking designed round those who want better jobs for their children. Such banking never rabank, marlet value chains and education. And after a generation its sustainability invested succeed in open sourcing microfranchising innovations of life critical service franchises that most only the 1% poorest but any failing local place could best renew the future around. Note how the race to be the first to install a million soalr uinits was won by the bank for the poorest
Those old allies - the French and the Scots - originally mapped entrepreneurship around the pro-youth economics of freeing every human being happy working lifetimes. That's also the promise that the decalaration of independence united a nation around until the television adverting age quarter by quarter ended knowledge of marketing's greatest value multiplying segmentation. Since what is missing is replication of knowhow that odd nations out like Bangladesh have devoted a generation to, the hope now is that open education models will prioritise design practioner curricula arouind serving the 99%

CONTEXTWe 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
MICOWIKI CATALOGUEAttached 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…
Dad (Norman Macrae) created the genre Entrepreneurial Revolution to debate how to make the net generation the most productive and collaborative . We had first participated in computer assisted learning experiments in 1972. Welcome to more than 40 years of linking pro-youth economics networks- debating can the internet be the smartest media our species has ever collaborated around?
