our species depends on urgently
improving understanding of peoples across hemispheres- none more so than east-west; two thirds of humans live on the continent of asia with a few more per cent of the world's population living in what have emerged as the extraordinary productive hi-tech islands - japan, taiwan , hk, singapore. by the late 19th century all of the people on the asian continent had been colonised or had their trading systems blocked by western empires- primarly britain's. given this, we find it extraordinary valuable to study how 3 people from the orient travelled to the west and went on to change both hemispheres: gandhi
fazle abed

jack ma
below we look at how jack ma's first trip to the usa - seattle 1995 changed the world. he was then his city hangzhou's most popular english teacher- amazon's launch of ecommerce he returned to china to form a network with energetic youth and extraordinary investors including japan's hi tech billionnaire masa son and the silicon valley founder of yahoo jerry yang- how can ecommerce and efinance create the most jobs when china's web infrasucture arrives-?
Having become one of the world's biggest marketmakers, ma was tech city host of china's g20 2016 and at the un he was invited to become worldwide youth jobs adviser;in 2017 he announced that from 2019 september he would return full time to education- according to ma he couldnt see how to impact the 4 most vital social markets with commerce- this web tracks his progress as a return to full time education and his goal of celebrating how the sdg generation can change education , health, green markets, sports and arts markets

unlike ma, gandhi and abed travelled to britain in their teens - gandhi to study law in 1880s, abed to study engineering and shipping at glasgow uni of 1950s.--all three changed the livelihoods and sustainability of hundreds of millions of people in the race to end systemic poverty. unlike gandhi, graduate abed's 10 year spent ascending to become regional ceo of royal dutch shell gave him the perfect mix of engineering and admin experience to empower the poorest to nation build

the wicked problem of missing curricula youth most need- as jack says this is a huge problem; correspondenmce case posted may 2018: moreover we have atended many world bank youth summits where missing curricula have been pitched and everyone cheered the value but getiing each different nation to newly cetrtify suc new learning is a fools erand
-here part of a specific example- do you know a missing peer to peer curricula that needs similar linking in

I am staying at brac in bangaldesh my favorite girls education network in the world as well as largest ngo in wortld and partnership networkwe will see dean of james grant school of public health at brac university tomorrow- do you still have any message you wanted passed to brac about the peer to peer adolescent health program you and lancet have been building? we are mainly working with brac's overall education director as specified directly by sir fazle abed when i met him in qatar 2017 - sir fazle kindly gave a lot of his time to remembrance parties of my dad norman macrae at the japan embassy in dhaka in 2012more generally brac and jack ma started fin tech partnership earlier this month with brac's BkashSMS in bangladesh but for s asia (the whole 2 billion of china's neigbors particularly poorest girls on china south and south westren borders), for sustainabiliuty generation to scale and gain from these 2 superstars we believe partnering relations will broaden into looking at skills education ; we will be trying to form team both on bangladesh and china side to monitor this however fast or slow it goesmostofa has been working on bangladesh side for very long time- he also worked with modjtabia sadria then at aga khan in london while they were in london at time muhammad yunus was at his social business peak ; i believe modjtabia is now back in iran after some years with paul at monash? ( i didnt get to pauls grn summit in jordan 2006; i believe sadria did; i note that jack ma just made donation to queen of jordans education fund)

we are trying to invite any university student to form a club to see where is the nexus between what students most want to study practically and training that sir fazle and jack ma could mooc or otherwise maximally distribute to benefit livelihoods- togther the names of jack ma and sir fazle can be a top 100 web and top 1 web for open action learning- in branding terms this is easy as long as we quickly get all best friends of ma and abed signed up at one launch summit blessed by china and on the road to ma's sponsorship of huge expo at tokyo olympics

after 8 visits to beijing i am reasonably confident that we can get as much additional support as we want from tsinghua university in beijing (over there they know thgere are half a billion undre 30s and that china cant afford any youth left legless by mismatch between jobs and what colleges like examining-- ) additionally tsinghua with aiib is heavily into belt road pitches to india this year so education can be 2 for 1 so to speak
as long as both jack ma and sir fazle have approved a subject area as being one that needs development in this type 2 pee to peer or apprentice mode i believe we can help scale missing curricula

as you think you know i first met pauil komesdroff in 2004- i love everything he was trying to create volunteer expereinces abroad around monash and medics and cultural/arts translators;I hope we can find the right way to linkin monash as this idea gains momentum

• 2012 can londoners smarten up the globalisation's mass media photo call of being olympics game hosts and change the bbc to be a citizen owned social business public broadcaster whose greatest world service is open curiosity in investigating sustainability agendas -where is social business's first anchor woman and will she get as much freedom of voice as macroeconomics news analysts

do we or should we have someone who both has the time and the expertise to get in middle of this china-london climate dialogue context below?

I know I dont have the expertise - if this looks to you less interesting than a parallel general discussion space on china and climate, which one interests you most

the big partnering space yunus wants to build in his national strategy leaflet http://yunusforum.net/?p=55 called growing up with 2 giants is bangladesh-china -as a group do we have any china contacts or are we starting a whole new collaboration partner gameboard?

Subject: Can consumers save our climate? -- chinadialogue update

Date: Monday, 4 January, 2010, 17:06

Happy 2010 to all our readers! We hope you had a chance to catch up with chinadialogue over our Christmas-New Year break, and we head into 2010 with a fresh mix of articles on critical environmental matters. After Copenhagen, for instance, can market forces – and consumers in particular – help address global warming? John Elkington looks at the promises and pitfalls of “green” consumption, while Tan Copsey examines the outcome of the climate summit. And as China faces difficult decisions over waste disposal and local residents vent their opposition to garbage-burning plants, Ma Jun suggests a way forward. In a two-part slideshow, Daniel Robeiro presents images of deforestation, water and energy issues in Mozambique. Meanwhile, the country’s offshore neighbour, Madagascar, faces many of the same challenges. David Smith reports on how climate change is blamed for playing havoc with the island nation’s harvests and the seasons. And Jonathan Freedland argues that glitzy, debt-ridden Dubai could have spent its riches in much better ways. All this and more in your weekly chinadialogue update … Have you taken our quick-and-easy readers’ survey yet, in either English or Chinese? Please let us know what you think of chinadialogue. You could even win a prize.

亲爱的读者,新年快乐!希望你们在圣诞新年的假期中也抽空浏览了中外对话的文章。在进入2010之际,我们发表了几篇尖锐的文章,均是时下正受激烈讨论的环境议题。比如,哥本哈根会议过后,市场(尤其是消费者)是否能帮助解决全球暖化的问题?约翰•艾尔金顿对各国的承诺和“绿色”消费主义做出了讨论。同时,谭 •科普塞为您解读了气候峰会的成果。另外,中国面临着垃圾处理与居民反对建造垃圾焚化炉的难题,马军为此提出了一个解决方法。在两组幻灯片中,丹尼尔•里贝罗在莫桑比克给大家带来了关于当地伐林,水和能源问题的照片。而其隔海的邻居马达加斯加则面对着类似的挑战。大卫•斯密斯报道了气候变化使得该国的收成减少,四季气候陷入混乱。最后,乔纳森•弗里德兰指出,深陷债务的迪拜本来应该更好的利用财富。以上及更多环境资讯,尽在中外对话每周更新……另外,请完成短小的中、英文读者调查问卷,告知我们您对“中外对话”的意见,您将有机会获得纪念奖品……

设想在遥远的未来,外星人造访地球。他们会不会发现什么线索,证明这里曾经有过智慧生物的繁荣?我们的城市、大坝、工厂会不会留下什么遗迹,能在1亿年后被探测出来?这是一项简单而有趣的思考实验,在某种程度上正是简•扎拉斯维奇(Jan Zalasiewicz)这本精巧的地质学图书所探究的问题。更多

“The Earth After Us”

Imagine alien visitors arriving on Earth in the remote future. What evidence may they find to tell them that intelligent beings once thrived here? What fragments of our cities, dams and factories may be detectable in, say, 100 million years’ time? It is a simple but intriguing thought experiment that is explored, to some effect, in this neat little geological entertainment by Jan Zalasiewicz.
