June 30-July 4 is 5th child art/youth creativity olympiad hosted by Ashfaq on the mall in washington dc - with youth delegations from nearly 100 countries, and chinese with nearly 100 being the largest international delegation
back in 1975 my father's work at The Economist mapped why china would be the epicentre of millennials world by 2010s and all could go well for sustainability if washington and china twinned in win-win arrangements for their youth's creative futures in such a way that all worldwide youth and open education could celebrate too
so i am wondering if with 40 days to go before the olympiad there are any ideas that can interface several of your life's work not just on the 5 days themselves but in alumni networks of educators and youth that could be born
1 GORDON DRYDEN The Learning Web - Home Page
About 10 years after my fathers 1984 book on all could go well with spending 4000 times more on global commns tech 2030 versus 1946 if such spends were designed around youth's learning networks and ending poverty , Gordon out of New Zealand reported extreme experiments in new zealand how digital could change students and teachers role- within 4 years he was on national television in china selling 10 million copies of his book

From DC being in my residential view a top 10 anti-youth capital, movements started in 2012 when jim kim came to world bank and explained how only milennials can sustain helath (his practice are for 25 years), and why not adopt Prefertenial option poor model as educational benchmark for every profession needed for millenials to sustain the world
Following july on the mall; we have open tech wizard summits inside world bank in august, the pope giving congress and un masterclasses on inequality in september, jim kim relocating the world bank start of the year meeting to peru both his most famous partner country and nearly 50 years into modernising the Franciscan catholic curricula of POP-over in atlanta november muhammad yunus, Laura Turner daughter of CNN"s Ted, and 20 nobel peace laureates (linked since 2000 out of rome) celebrate with 10000 youth.
So i hope there are some win-wins between everyone -how can we move forward to action them?
