Main reason for optimism is leapfrogging - thats when a society/place that was excluded from industrial age networks leapfrogs an old system to a new one thanks to 1000 times more COMstech than 1946; about a third of the world never had wired telephone lines, now almost all have mobile (text version); more than a quarter of the world never had electricity grids, now microsolar is linking in;.

Even as the 1960s moon race inspired the world, we need to understand how unequal the opporttunity to innovate had been - even in the 1960s as many as half the world's people had no access to electricity grids so they got their news of the moon race by word of mouth.

Consider 1000-1500- until the last few years of this period , the known world was Europe-Asia and NE Africa; #BR8 the med sea was the main world trade waterway; places facing this sea increasingly developed win-win trades; moreover #BR7 the west asian border to med sea was the start of an amazing overland relay of traders which stretched all the way to china (the silk road was the greatest overland world trade route ever and to sustain its interfacing markets required positive cross-cultural bridging all along its route. Silks and spices from the Chinese end acted like a positive currency- there was much demand for them whose value naturally went up the further they were merchanted back to Europe. Everyone gained for this trading route- you can read marco polo's diaries- perhaps nowhere invested more in artistic celebrations of being a major hub of positive trade than his hometown venice in europe and the town he was asked to govern for 2 years in china Hangzhou which marco described as the great town of markets in the world.)

What happened towards 1500 that 2 long shipping routes were discovered by north europeans- the new world of the ameriucas to the west (#BR6 N, #BR10 what we now call Latin America), and a way of reaching the @BR2 South Asian coastal Belt (starting with the indian subcontinent) by sailing around africa. A ship captain couldnt affird such a long return voyage unless he goit what trade he wanted- soon this big ships were equipped with gun power and crews were pressganged or even enslaved. Next in the process was colonising. So it was that nations became big by pludering economies of other peoples places. Back in 1500 places economic size was corelated with population. Soon Britain grew at the expense particularly of the Indian subcontiuent. Mainly Britain and France colonised Africa too, Spain andPotrtugal colonised Latin America. North America was settled by a mixyure of Europeans whose declaration of Indendence in 1776 ended any attempt by Britain to colonise America, But we should note that the USA was built on a sort of internal colonisation - natives had theor places taken over and slaves were used to do most of the hard labour. In effect the old war's colonial ways casued the 2 world wars of the fkirst half of the 20th C. From 1946 most of the world's countries regained their independence but starting from (mainly undeveloped states - poverty that the colonia era had gtraped them in).

Ironically whule the UDA came to tghe resuce of the old workld and from 1946 helped relaunch the two biggest losers of world war 2 Germsny and Japan, american (not withstandiong thair family trees origins) had previously had little modern of knowledge of Eurasia but were pulled into peacekeeping and the cold war with russia through the sceond half of the 20th C. Whilst there was some understanding of the extraoerdinary progress japanese enginers made with electornics, civil and other enginnering, the rise and rise of the east and the often difficult bodrers that had been caused by British and Jpoanese colonisation of the region are not deeply studied by most Americans or their media. It should be the best news the world has ever seen that the fifth of the world in chjna tghat closed itself to the world for more than a centiry after Brfits has offered opium as a gtrading currency in 1860 is now as entrepreneurial as anywhere. With over half of tghe world's ;people facikng either the sout asia or east asia coastal belts, the opportunity the east is cfreating to win0pwin gtrade oin line with moore's ever increasing technology should make sustainable youth worlwdie the gfreatesty positive curency-invetsment the human race has ever mapped. But this is not how USA or the block of coungtriues ruled by the Euro have marketed transapfrently. Instead we are caught in the Keynsian crisis of economist not valuing the hippocratic oathes he had published as tghe final chapter of the ngeneral throy of employment money and interest. The 2020s are likely to make the system designs our tech spreads irreversible- will the end game be big brother extinction or little sister sustainability?

youth collaboration across cities may be our last best chance at sustainability unless you know better

those who love helping youth linkin sustainability solutions across cities and hemispheres had several huge reasons to cheer from summits in dc and ny this last week and ones coming up soon - some notes below- please exchange news with me at to get more specifics -and if you happen to be in madrid between sunday lunch and tuesday night why not meet for tapas!


CITIES FOR ALL: Inclusive Implementation & Monitoring of the SDGs & the NUA

Event Information


In order to respond to the fundamental challenges that threaten the sustainability and prosperity of nations and its cities, the international community has renewed its efforts to shape global policies and practices that are crucial for the sustainability of humankind. The adoption of the 2030 Development Agenda and the New Urban Agenda represent an important paradigm shift in tackling both persistent and emerging challenges, with a greater recognition and understanding of the multiple dimensions of poverty and vulnerability, especially effecting women and youth, are related to urbanization.
The side event will be an open forum to demonstrate both the need for meaningful data collection as a way to measure and demonstrate the effectiveness of the Sustainable Development Goals and the New Urban Agenda, combined with examples of how the inclusive implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals and the New Urban Agenda is being undertaken by governments, civil society, the private and multi-lateral sector. The speakers will be drawn from four main sectors namely civil society, private sector, government and UN Agencies with a strong links to cities, and who will discuss both how data and metrics are essential for development goals to make correct decisions on the best policies to adopt, combined with how the sectors currently are implementing the Sustainable Development Goals and the New Urban Agenda.

Hi Soimk Lall we briefly talked about your publication on african cities during the world bank knowledge fest - before coming to dc i volunteered for european union knowledge board starting up what became youth-sustained hubs across many collaboration cities

I am very interested in linking youth networks with how they can link best supercity projects around the world
Particularly knowledge connecting ones that youth can energetically link through hubs and massively freeing collaboration between students who are often siloised by universities or other sponsoring institutions- i found out how bad siloisation of usa academia is by touring with muhammad yunus round 20 colleges he spoke at none of whom want their students to cross-fertilise -shame on them= i do not believe in silosing end poverty museums   The Collaboration Cafe

Would a meeting be worthwhile; you might also choose if particular friends initiatives interest you

1 daniel takes 1000 english speaking students to a college in south west china every 4 months; this gives us a chance to theme different future interests and make sure of continuing alumni connections between chinese and english speaking youth. 
Supercities and goal 11 around the world is a regular sub-program though we would need help in bringing in the first stream of youth who wanted to include african cities beyond eg nairobi, joburg and addis where we already have lots of technology connectors

2 jayfus is baltimore dc regions trainer of supercoders in the african diaspora end connected with our partnerships which bring expertisie from Dc to the community hubs of thurgood marshall which are supported by world leading faith groups and increasingly all kinds of wizard technologists and chinese visitors - he works closely with king who nalso runds dc conscious capitalism chapter- while this is led bt john mackey of whole foods it is now linked to over 20 student union clubs around the world through students for liberty

steve also connects king and has a new academy serving several african cities; prita ,links in indian citoies end poverty learning festivals

3 years ago i was contacted by some chinese female undergraduates who had studied jim kims change the world transcritops and who have been making sure that pretty much every major chinese city is able to welcome youth who seriously want to exchange development solutions  -amy is the ringleader of that circle and has many educational and open space mentors depending what sort of practice area of development students want to exchange over and above peer to peer language and coding groups

kiehl in new york owns broadways main movie studio but kindly lets youth host any supercity discussions whenever they pass through new york- he and his associate jose also helps linkin leading engineering schools around the world: makers faires, fablabs, big data sme apps etc- additionally kiehls has helped eg medgar evers in brooklyn get sneak previews of social activist movies that need massive youth community teamwork- there must be ways to connect all the energy of black america whether its internal or diaspora- again inter-hemisphere connectore amy has been helping storytell that oschina
