youth Exchange 2 -hoped for eta chinese millennials lead middle east and new york milennians back to sustainability friendships - if not hopefully china will relocate 21st C UN

contact chris macrae washington dc 240 316 8157 if you have reason to join in these 5 bravest hosts of sustainability I expect I will ever know  -also see initial top 12 open space agendas of the yera premir at http://globalgrameen.ning.com 

joanne, hiro youth exchange china brooklyn middle east tokyo -joann wanted to add you in from brooklyn, hiro from tokyo- yuxuan writes this from 2 months in qatar connecting wise alumni ------ Hi Chris. Happy New Year! Yes I am still with WISE, but not as intern, but more like a youth ambassador on education representing China. Will work on developing sustainable educational models with amazing talented individuals from 29 other countries this week. ,, yuxuan just graduated in english lit from tsingua university beijing- what with amy's open space china these 2 ladies can map many social and educational tipping points. They are also both alumni of the 100 nation creative children network that celebrated its 20th year in dc july 2015 -amys first visit abroad. Hiro and mostofa know who in middle east has sponsored most of development labs at MIT boston relevant to the region's integration with rest of the world. The first WISE summit 5 years ago celebrated my friends sir fazle abed in dhaka - whose work goes way beyond yunus in building the most collaborative ngo in the world. The whole story of bangladesh as 100+ million nation built by world's poorest rural women links back to s. americas of the 1960s whose preferential option poor models both yunus and abed adopted as they were founding grameen and brac. Wonder if there are other NY agencies who might understand what the 5 of you could empower youth to exchange sans frontieres. Your flows and 2016 sustainability tipping points will not be seen again. Happy new year everyone.

the weekend j15-17 of open space in new york i need to take my daughter back to college so i am not clear that I will be able to meet you again before kenya- fortunately amy is much better connected on all relevant african flows due to yazmi and her other main washington dc internships to date; open space due to harrison owen and her mutual concerns for social solutions blossoming wherever youth work

john hosts 5 days of apps and maths coders workshops at MIT last week of january

his musical friends around the world are due to launch an app that mashes up 100 countries rhythms (i dont understand how) but in an attempt to create a universal song and dance of joy which it was rumored they wanted to launch when berkeley hosts clinton universuity at start of april

desire to set up fablabs in the region ,,,,

amy and I are still working hard to linkin berkeley with new york and in particular give directly that started in berkeley but is now headquartered in new york - if we are right give directly is the biggest app empowering youth to be at the epicentre of youth future development instead of trickle down bottom

also critical to linkin from kenya side is unhabitat as its headquartered in kenya, has lead responsibility for goal 11 sustainable communities and cities-  this is the goal that every new yorker i have met finds simplest to start connecting youth with and then through to every other goal

The MEC School of Business Is committed to organizing an academic conference in collaboration with ENS Global (Escuela De Negocios Sociales) that will encourage a student and faculty exploration of social enterprise corporations and how these entities may apply commercial strategies that maximize improvement in human development and environmental well being.
