Can youth save the world with fei-fei li's vision ai

related last best chances 2019 Melinda Gates & Fazle Abed 

I have been writing to risk and sustainability experts as to why it seems to me youth ai20s.com is our last best chance thanks to the worlds I see with AI Vision founder Fei-Fei Li.

Can you all help humanise intelligence? First lets make sure AI is fun and smart for school kids 11 and up. Why not the number 1 celebration wherever girls influence? .

CURRICULUM- we find consistency in aiverygood curriculum comes from Fei-Fei Li- here's her invitation to get involved

Please note a lot of people use similar channel names - we hope we have correctly identified where to connect with Fei-Fei Alumni -curriculum resources - youtube related to these resources

If your school doesnt see AI as the most exciting current (good news) affairs lesson series ever - show them cases. If they don't urgent adapt - economistuniversity.com has news for administrators whose costly papers dont keep their promises. And as for pension funds of such abusive professionals ..

How did web 1 and web 2 since 1990 bring youth to brink of extinction.

 Many mistakes (losses to chances of sustainability) have been made in the last 30 yeras since web1 and then web 2 appeared. Its much more important to identify mistakes and find solutions than to indulge in blame games . (One thing if some forces are still profiting from one of these broken systems beware they may block you however urgent the solution) If you are secure with what mistakes most impacted you and yours you may want to jump to web3 metaverse design maximising youth opportunities and thise teachers who want youth to achieve what they could not - see www.bcmrace.com

When we write 2025 report in 1984 we expected webs 9person nal computing networks) to appear in 1990 and we also explored the hypothesis that webs would be designed around win-win action learning networks (eg sharing life critical knowhow) as a top priority. Although webs started as learning spaces, commerce took over far faster than we expoected ; wirse learning webs were not identifiable separately from transcaction webs so they fell out of every search)

Its worth being claar things could have gone either way- cluetrian.com issued a 90 point declaration on more transparent marketing and customer focus but this was not what web1 became designed to do; in pleacse that had been previously cut of feg new zealand some communities did explore 10 years of applying web only to schools - the book which about 1000 new zealand families used became a 10 million family best seller in china. So China and new Zealand became the only places where web1 truly helped youth develop; and what was to come was mobile devices replacing computer laptops but far more than that mobile devises shared data for every gps and being on the planet. A few huge organsiations gained from this amking most of our communities ever less sustainable


By 2008 several countries were reportiung to us that at least half of youth at whatever stage they left the educatiin system would not have have jobs waiting for them. Big permanent employing organsaitions were of a past era. What was particulary unfair about this situation was systems that went on ending education life with examinations where the last year ir two needed to be spent in maximising a persinns network andapprenticing. This unfairness doubled up where  thise going through coleges alsi found themselves in large debt.

By the time girdon btwon hosted his education commissio0n at the un after the first year of sustainability goals the situation was worse. Some national leaders we are making many youth unemployable- we are not giving them 21st C skills; we are training them for jobs trobots can do.

Let us be quite clear : look around the world at how much local chalenges exist- there is more work for youth to do than ever. The mismatch is in finacing local lasdt mile service jobs and in skills being taught.

The bigegst sadness of ours compasred with our expectations back in 1984 is by now in advanced countries every youth could have theoir own skils dashboard and their own persinal bit system matching what they need to learn next to qualify for hwat work. It is in oiur review absurd than an adcanced country like usa left it mainly to one charity khan academy to digitalise learning until the pandemic. A smooth tranbsition of blended learning from 1990 to 2020 could have helped youth lives be very different. In many ways the failure of advnaced countries to open source best trainers and student centric learning devices penalises lless developed countries even more.

If you look around there are now quite a long list of missing curricula - south afrricas mandeka viryally free university which operated for abouyt 14 yeras foud that the most relevant undergraduate coy=usres had simplified versions that were vitalk for aberage student in south africa who was leaving edu sf=ystem age 14. These missing courrsces

entrepreneurship which branson had helped the university design

finacial literacy

ciding which google africa had helped the university with

self-confidence - the university recommended maharishi - indeed it found a large number of studenst were staring university with minds that jad suffered as much as solkfiers coming back from war

Since these =specificaton in early 2010s, it has been suggested that teachers themselves from second grade up need to be invilved in missing curricy=ula at every grade such as artificial intel; if a 2nd grade teacher isnt free to question what tech is chnaging fast she will soon be out of touch with what 10th graders need most

in other subejects solutions can come by valuing older peer teach younger peer life expereinces; the lanceyt has argued young adolescent personal helath is a big missing curriculum that could be simply designed around this


By the scond of his ten years as leader of the Un, Guterres who had previously been the UN'sd main coordinatir of relfugee services, clarified that sustainability gaols could not be achieved unless Un2.0 transformed around digital roadmapping - the first new piece of thsi digital cooepration had emerged from educatirs deliberations on broken systems (or more exactly on elead group discussed here -eg jim kim memlinda gates geneva unctad and itu practitioners ...)

With the year long digital cooperation expert report avaiaable from 2019; the design of all 8 transfromation pieces(and guterres tech envoy office)  were clarified by 2019- and by fall 2021 guterres was ready to chalenge 21-22 as yera we reserach how educatiuon is no longer fit for purpose - watch outh for what goes oin UNGA sept 2022


places where humans had not previously had access to tech - eg those who never had electricity grids and leaped to mobil and solar became huge learning labs where they found optimal cooperation partners - see what billion poorest vilagers achieved thanks to cooperations mediated by people like Fazle Abed

question to today's lse experts #urbanage

UK had "big society" debates like this 12 years ago as possible response to subprime's failure- in retrospect they did not sustain value public life space then - so are you expecting bankers of big city space to change now? economistyouth.com

what did you like best - highlights for us at www.economistyouth.com www.economistpoor.com from kenya young lady continuing wangarai mathaai's green movement- youth from egypt making a fast start in linkedin in cop27- the prime minister of barbados giving 197 other un national leaders a roasting - we were'nt a nation when you were born but we are now - of course scotland still isnt a UN nation in spite of speakers assigning blame to brother james watt for 1760s starting up the combustion engine, but it seems they never read his co-worker www.adamsmith.app- if every leader committed to quiz global industry leaders the way prince charles is at https://lnkd.in/duaBzQYZ 25 years ago we started quizzing world's biggest organsiational leaders on whether they had a purpose the world would miss -definitely should have applied that at global market https://lnkd.in/dnxXgpAs not individual corporate brand level

aiib philipinesd

ken british cop26 ambassaoor for regiob

wjy wait to july 1 2023 - paris alignement

why wait to then

we at aiib are not waiting - we are testing concepts t converge collaboratively on this

climate financng recaing 4-%=50% - no gap

domingiuez absurd philippines contributes 3% of emissions to world but as leader we commit to 75% reduction but where are teh rewards of living up to paris agreement

philipiness willshare our oraoadmap at cop26 - watch out!

we are pushing law ban single use plastics

also landmark projects - represneting all local conreners of filipmes including eg fish! - they have identified top 10 climate risks indueced by our country - while we move with ourgency very little promi8eses of west hacve happened - we need western responsibility to share theor buderen so most climate vlbneable countries get hustice; get chnace 

maldives we need accelerated effors by developed world - things small islands running out of times

hard to attract cliamte finace for maldives and all sisdd

we cant take mre loan s on climate - we have immediate peope development needs; we need predictable long term farmweworls on big risks insteasd of biggest countries chaning game every 4 yera election cycle or worse than that every eu or other g7 chnage

ken o'falaherty britsh common sense

aiib is leading among mdbs

mainstraming nature into banking thinking - reference

paris alignment is the correct date but who will be french political leader 20203 - why guterres has chsoen

dame asnne richards fidelity international

aligng paris agrement goals 2015-23

our firms role gather small pots of moey from families etc and invest into real economy - not starihghtfowrad process

at joining up klevel mdbs critocla role decarbon agendapharse paras alignement erferes to goal to 1.5% and why over 1.5% is not a viable galpost to cghange 

slip now futre slips ever gereater

clarify diference betwenn 1.5% and 2% to most vulnerabe

we are not moving fats enough - private investors can see publiv cpolicy maters - we need grand pledges made legally binding in law

banks / capat allocatrs can stiil do a lot - and how we include emrgeing econies in this - we need both just and rapid transitions - developed economies have longstanding ersponsbiliti9es for whole world picture

ability to give project verifiable approval can be huge in growing competence for money flowing where it needs o

1 operationally wgat can eg fidelity do within out own operation to be net zero by 2030 ; and how can we make portgliosd we manage for other peopel by 2030 what we call scope 3

- lever - fi eunds 800mn on behalf of other peopel - we defune policies but we dont want to shuffle problems onto oether peopels portfolios - thats where we need esg profiling o0f thsoe we invest in - even bad carbon comanies today - so they change

we are seeing exciting innovation /tech changes coming from those esg-ceos but we are losing teh time battle

we need to refrane the time at cop26-q what can blending finance eg between fi and mdb

q to lqun - your 40% reality pledge now please clarify - liwun numbers aim 50% of finacing by 2025 (our wjole span 2019-2030 will be 50 billion dolars ) large amount for new but small mdb - comare resorces of otheres mdbs - list

devekoped countriesd can work with bmdbs to be teh chnage they need to live up to

there is plenty of money floating around0 challenge os transparent reallocation - urgency climare adaparation.mitogation - doe we really beleive extinction on line

this is not exc[penditire - this has investemt returns across a generation but not teh short-term

regarding private sectirs resource s- need enabling enviroment toc hange confidence on teh colabration long trem napping

nb these are not tradeoffs with economic growth - they are tareoffs with each other

cf invetsing in ednding covid as // case

must retrn to investemnt medntality taht 1.5% is the goal to p-revent extinction

work through all tese issues by teh fdiferent majot sources of finaces

developed contries must play their part

one more question gillain- do you do blended with private at the moment - we do co-finanace but we dont give absdolute guarantees - we seek to enhnace the future mindset not guarantee indigidual private sector sources

at aiib we beleieve in esg farmeworks - where privalte sector ises tarsnparent esg framwoeworls as applied to claimte change finacing

q to dominguez

what will be local reactions if cop26 not seens s turning point by your people s- in philippines green colab of ahemces led by depattemt of finance has becme a syndergetic green frinance ecosystem - within our regio we are hitting ground running - we hope the raodmap we will share at galasgow will sinpire other developing countries

q to domingez - are you optimistic about galsgow - we awant to see speringvoard back to paris - thsi is 2

maldives - global finacial ecosystem grren finance still nit congruent

maldives may be small but our geo isuues impact big countriesd in region locally

our people are being given no discuont on green long term finace wheile needing uregent now invetsment eg leap from galsgow

o flaherty - 100 billion fund

specific sectirs needs to paly tehi9r part to o - eg transprorattion

dam erichards

carbon offest marekt needed

we need sustainability accounting principles 

at moment all out professoioan system ad hoc - separated

plouticl expediencey in sgp0rt-trem kepp overtrumping long term action/ pathways - total lack of future now transparecy in most urgently conflicted regionsd

audiemce qs to 

pres join - paria slignemnt july 2023 - detail roadmaps -mdbs in general;; aiib i particular - will a=ib publish this in a climate change action plan ? have other mdbs published theor own and tehor collaborative versions of this

jin -we are tryinh to pulish 1 group plans acrosos mdbs ; but also tarsnaprent country6 plans; it doesnt make sense to do one sumarry as a separate aiib action report at this stage - trying to fit teh win-win pieces (

 we are gearing to clarity bt paris 2023 - want all mdbs to common up with common feramework for thsi treportying ) we are not trailing mdbs

another tough question aiib spends twoce as much on fissin fuells as non fossils - idba regulation chalenge from kate geery - - ea tecommendation -- jin we are financing rebewables now 41%; will be 50% by 2025; in our eergy tratefy - we'll review 2022- over lat 6 uears no coal fired generation ; no coal ever considered; as frr gas reying to help poorest countries with rsnsition - not realistic to ban gas from least dev countries - when we do gas we want it to be transitional prohects

ro dame edwards - ant peogrew with 300 tn --- 

if only we could turn to different urposes -element of truth regulations get in way but aswe advance ssutainablevaccounting, kite mark - we must remember individualws =eed as pebsioners - risk appropritetramlimes ro futire - country by country change in these regulations very slow - in 30 years of work i hacvent seen change of mood like now but devil is in details - doesnt rrelly get it - tesponsibility safeguarding

question to  ameee maldives domingez/philippines

we need 100 bn to help bring down costs of green finance projects any way that is actionable out of our locality-derisk soveregn finance- we4 can make tjos specific - eg coatal projects;;  investment versus grnts - you cant separate - r=think of the goals- the grants need to imprice capavity of the peoples to be the community vitigators - ed skills educatuon , commujity building ; part 2 investmts with a return eg solar; 3rd elent climate finance must be subsidies- eg subisifiese geen to replace coal - there needs be accountability both by users of funds and big countreies responsibilit y to repeat brants incestms=nts subisies 3 different levels of bottom-up conections

more qs to jin

your pledge transparency aiib

1 climate change faster than normal versus bsiness as usual - how does aiib taking bith scenrios into its internalmodels of progrss climate mitigation;; how do we use aiib website to understanf t=your integrate climate model

jin as i say want to see ll mdbs come toge5her one b=voice wat we need at paris alignemnt 2023 - the investments we do are not to be done in business as usual manne;; infrastructure projects must all be adaptative - tech enabled infrastructure can be dufferent - not just old static metrics but combinatial consequence - changing social opportunities towards geen ecosystems - we are innovating non-business as usual projects .... last question how will aiib identify projects that fall in clmate finace - eg covid proects---- -distibuuish clinate vresus covid projects---yes climate an dovid fuancing sustems are not the same - in covid 199 we anted to help sustain health system s - deep basics last mile service and then longer term build forward of their health system ; so countries could deal with futire pandemics (vaccine accesss versus vaccine manufactiring capacity) - when it comes to climate chnage mitgation ist much nire complex 1 focus on renewablesd 2 energy efficiency projecst eg impriving trasnoport to be energy efficiennr 3 new techologies for improving while - what is important for societies to know what we are doing  - we will review our web... good news this is a frank discusion; we are connecting asian and other voices ; more good news we have heard who wants to collaborate; opportnity of ever more transparent- bad news gur=terres we are beond 1.5 - ever more catatrophe - angiesh poorest countries vis a vis rich countries - gap on 100 billion dollar  - thank you to panelists - lets see if after glasgow these sorts of debates rse with participation od all

if 100 bn dollar smoitmment from glasgow=============================
