First a question to TB
Taddy what would you need to be keynote speaker at an event out of brooklyn early march 2016?
Critical diary timelines: ahead of clinton university landing on US other coast in berkeley and Chilicon Valley - the last chance we have of changing hbu colleges balance of student power versus all the other highly resourced players/alumni in public state systems of higher education across usa- also my last chance next weekend to offer rome's nobel peace laureate summit producers and green club of rome a way back to what yunus and atlanta high society failed to stage - nov 2015 failing King family curricula just as nov 2014 cape town peace summit failed mandela curriculum
Then a report to all of us
On Friday, two rich members of New York's jewish high society concerned with reality of sustainability goals and changing media met me and a feisty female dean of a poor black college in Brooklyn (part of the states public system CUNY) thanks to an introduction made by Bernardo and his social lawyer friends in rome and east europe - made timely by the pope's family investment curriculum being shared at the UN and immigrant crises around all EU borders which Italy is one of the last sane voices in every way that Germany/Switzerand/Luxembourg bad bankers are not. Amy (with her friend Song) is our coworker who also interprets passions and leadership purposes of these characters - Dianne D, John K, D-JR- in fact at a college meeting of 4 professors and the dean , amy and song and I it only became apparent the dean was up for something that her professors could not be, when the chinese ladies started explaining their generations crisis was not dissimilar to poor black millennials need for investors microentrepreneurial trust to regenerate communities across usa.
It was unearthing the deans conflict which made it vital to open space for her among new yorks corridors of the rich last Friday.
Youth Economics is My fathers life work- on how (to prevent) lost local generations as compound consequences of economists hired to design monopoly rules by rich or madly egotistic people- the curriculum for this is the last chapter of Keynes General theory backed in my fathers direct experiences as a teenager of europe's worst places to be born as his father was a british consul in 1930s moscow where dad first met peter drucker and an adriatic port where last jews fleed from hitler. By the 1970s fathers Youth Economics clarified the risk to losing all of the first worldwide generation - all of open society's and millennials sustainable futures would be won or lost by quality of open system connections of new technology's networks - and that chinese millennials loss or gain of generation friendship would link all millennials sustainability
Youth Education is the open systems that the web must-needs to afford to end compound risk of lost generations and of wars. It maps integrated design of an economy through open mobilising/multiplying jobs knowhow and degrees of freedom in which people with greatest need and people with greatest power are transparently mediated by all 7 billion of us alive today
Youth Empowerment frankly bothers me as a branded movement . While I understand its pivotal to anna's relationship networks in san diego because of the way things spun around naila- both she and I have suffered the same problem. Much of our last 10 years work with youth recommended yunus then naila as the leader to connect with and both of us have found out to our cost that neither yunus nor naila are any longer helping students to head to what we most loved about their work. Bernardo has a similar but bigger problem being the first person to develop a yunus curriculum for the south americas and so all latino-linked cultures and sustainability innovations. Actually all Bangladeshi's success was ideologically built on late 1960s system design advocated out of s.america - professions/educators need to live with the poor to help them develop their communities bottom up and to ensure advances in technology are preferentially applied to rural's historical lack of access and infrastructure. This POP (Preferential Option Poor) mindset is best practised in health by Paul Farmer and is globally empowered today by Pope Francis and Jim Kim. In the 1970s, USA went to war with POP in many central american countries wrongly confusing it with america's blind hatred of communism. To this day congress (partisan lobbied in everything except the amount spent on arms - not just money- over half of congress's discretionary dialogues are on arms races) is the last space in the world prepared to help youth POP or the world enjoy peace dividends
I want to clarify Youth Empowerment isnt a brand my friends can best differentiate our knowhow around in the same way that Youth Economics and Youth Education are. This in spite of work in london after 9/11 when my main mentor founded empowerment illustrated and connected three methods most valued by me: 1 open space; 2 Gandhian whole truth dialogues including eg self-confidence training such as Maharishi 3 valuing intangible and sustainability with opposite metrics that quarterly extraction and externalisation - Colin was then killed in 7/7 even though his day time job had developed an ad campaign for a mobile company on who do you want to mooc one to one with Obituary: Colin Morley - BBC News www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-11838135
Friends and I have active connections in at least 13 capitals- new york, DC, boston, san francisco/silicon valley, San diego , nairobi/addis ababa, dhaka, rome/budapest, chile/peru, beijing, tokyo, dubai, lpndon/glasgow- only in san diego is youth empwerment the lead term tto open innovation doors. We want to linkin all pro-youth capitals . This isnt just personal preference- the only just-in-timeway we can get investment back in families and next generation is to challenge worldwide media, local education and sustainability investment models and auditing. We have curricula for doing that which we cannot reach if a summit merely assembles empowerment advocates.
As well as compound system logics maps being the mindset needed to bring down such false models as GDPs that macroeconomists have been hired to monopolise over freedom of vice, amy needs a visa so that her creative interventions can be maximally valued by my open space friends. I cant afford to waste time on any meeting in rest of 2015 that is not also concerned with this short-term goal
LESSON FOR SAN DIEGO NOV 12 FROM NEW YORK OCT 30 and via windsor castle and rome (this week)
all of abve became very clear as a dean explained how broken the education system CUNY that she is in. CUNY has all sorts of false curriculum of entrepreneurship sponsored by big banks-- so a college of black urban poor youth like D-JR is not expected to challenge the CUNY gurus directly if its staff are to have a job. However she is led by her students chance of jobs and accidentally her college has some playing pieces now. There is something called brooklyn dockyard that her college has been told to turn into youth incubation city. The powerful parts of the CUNY system are just waiting for her to fail so they can take over the site and maybe get rid of her team. This may causedrich new york jews quite a challenge as they are embedded in the powerful parts of the cuny system -and writing conflictng proposals to carnegie foundation every month - but had never actively met a leading educator for jobs in historically black colleges. November was due to have seen atlanta and ted turner family host the mother pf all summits around yunus luther king family, and in memory of mandela with help of rome but as so often over last 7 years it was yunus agents greed or egos that destryed many years of work towards this stage
WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY 2015 Q4
Where this goes for pope francis alumni or jim kim alumni as well as mixing the richest in new york with the poorest black students- and whether the futures of chinese millennials can open space around all of this is what i want to spend time of my kind of people on
Also urgent is understanding open space china as no movement can be a better cultural translator for anyone in dc while we have access to harrison owen and amy in the same place and given von neumanns prediction (from father's biography of von neumann)- network partners around youth's sustainability goals will have taken irreversible shape -for better or for worse- within 90 days of worldwide launch
