This 9 year learning curve that began as my fathers last student research project may be relevant to tonites meeting. As i think you know one way of describing mostofa's 2 year project is a 6000 youth exchange ecosystem - majority in uae but with minimum critical mass anywhere that disadvantaged youth hub sustainability goals or jobs empowerment through pen technologies

3 questions
Q1 What are 4 of biggest missed action learning network opportunities of muhammad yunus relationships with millennial relevance to social hub hackathon

Q2 evidence/reasons why yunus 7 years since sub-prime crisis have lost touch with worldwide millennials

Q3 what is a social hub hackathon?

Tomorrow when Rome comes to DC sees the start of POP of Biggest Change Month (BCM)
jargon PoP - Preferential option Poor - an ideology that emerged in 1960s when people of  latin america (especially out of peru, columbia and brazil and in resistance movements in several countries still ruled by dictators  ) asked what they would like faith recognising that catholicism was not an organic ideology but at that time  was constitutional hangover of the main cultural legacy of colonialism by spain/portugal  -in effect latin americans as people chose the Franciscan way in every dynamic that made it opposite from other segments of catholicism including those that had in then living memories of spin and italy lost their way with fascism

anthropologists find little difficulty in translating POP as congruent to gandhi, king and mandela and open society  movements but in 197-s most joyfully of all the empowerment movement through which the worlds poorest women developed the new nation of bangladesh adapted the education ideology frpm brazil (pedagogy of oppressed) I suspect that chinese civilisation is also rooted in similar values but havent fund the way t verify that yet

Q3 what is a social hub hackathon? Q2 evidence/reasons why yunus 7 years since sub-prime crisis have lost touch with worldwide millennials

A3 Frankly I dont know - what most of my friends' time  regarding hubs hackathons are challenges shared by open technology hubs of which kenya ihub is a benchmark ... so is one in mountain view hub led by chinese women millennials ; students flows across boston act as an engineering or YP practice metahub or ecosystem. eg partners in health (started in 1987 as the alumni network of paul farmer and jim kim) would not think of itself as a hub but as a local to global social movement that achieves alumni goal -(in its case health POP) - that i assume any hi-trust hub network or young professional alumni association values if ending inequality is purpose of public service interfacing any life critical social sector
A2 I suggest observi9ng what went on with sheikh hasina/yunus in bangladesh, or atlanta and yunus, or Brussels and Yunus, or Queen Sofia and Yunus (4 locations journal of social business covered extensively) but dont see how fundraising to  build a new skyscraper of yunus offers a metahub solution that yunus ownership of grameen bank used to celebrate dhaka as epicentre of

Q1 What are 4 of biggest missed action learning network opportunities of muhammad yunus relationships with millennial relevance to social hub hackathon

A1.1 global empowerment  alliance4empowerment.org - see next month's  roadshow launch by naila out of san diego (footnote) - embracing 20 years  of what mobile women empowerment networks have valued partnerships  started 1996 at the grameen phone metahub partnership of yunus, soros, quadir/mit/legatum, naila and telenor

A1.2 bernardo in chile spent over 10 years designing POP curriculum matching the latin american identity now most visibly led by pope francis (friendship with jim kim) AND yunus student ideology of living and learning with the poor, and demanding new technology prioritsed apps with the poorest - he has recently been "laureated" by a leading vatican thintank whose office is about 5 minutes walk from the club of rome known originally or sustainability issues but gorbachev and open society leaders chose to coordinate nobel peace laureate summits with youth

A1.3 Taddy Blecher in south africa as spent nearly 2 decades on partners graduating 15000 underprivileged youth - missing jobs curriculum eg coding by google, entrepreneurship by  branson, empowerment by maharishi have now been translated  of 7th grade level  of teaching and studying- this matters to the national  goal of teenagers being empowered to  create million new jobs in south africa by 2022 because majority of south africans still end school at 7th grade  -whats uniquely interesting is blecher built the free university with mandela but without south african government- now it is the south african government demanding the missing 7th grade curricula - sir fazle abed at brac reports something similar - his great regret is that government never learnt from his 40000 village schools but now junior public servants are sent to special courses put on at brac

A1.4  (the curriculum of The Economist 1843-1993 embracing smith, wilson, keynes -and today among professional economists probably only my father's friend George Soros-  systemic designs to end poverty ) rational optimism economics whose 2 core design rules published 1984 for 21st century to come of age around the greatest advances in the human lot are:
education is the economy
sustainability is an intergenerational investment (quintessial to health, peace and wealth developing each other -empowered by families/communities. Its valuation metrics model exponential impact- sustainability rising or serially crashing. Previously civilisations declined and fell separately- not possible by 2030's completion of 4000 times  more spent on global village connectivity http://rowp.tv/id93.html

Ultimately goodwill flows through human relationship value chains can only be mastered over  2 opposite directions of leadership valuation
trust, joy, faith, courage love whole truth innovation
distrust dejection fear hate inconvenient truth (innovation that favour ever less than 1% but destroys local sustainability of 99% starting with girls born with the least) - this much alumni of the adam smith learning curve begun in 1748 out to have certified as knowable by the human race by now http://bcmrace.com
