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?

hello john

12 trillion dollars of new sustainability market sounds like a huge underestimate -is this an english speaking persons analysis or does it include brainstorming with chinese (where digital leaders like alibaba are making sustainability markets the main game for half a billion under 30s to develop ,life and livelihoods around) who are way more urgent on most sustainability challenges? 

do you have chapter in beijing - i  visit monthly to update one minute youtubes that youth around the world want to build sustainability livelihoods with- i am always amazed that whatever i bring students from tsinghua and peking university seem to pick up and then accelerate much faster

i think you know john that for many years i tried to connect yunus sustainability challenges with historically black and rulra states in usa; today we have converged all of that out of baltimoire communities which began all effective social justice case interventions for black and american women in 1881; we hope our baltimore projects are the most collaborative under 30s can find in sustainability world and certainly in trump-ruled states- please tell me if there is anyone in baltimore dc region i could be trying to linkin- there are so many tipping points - i only wish sustainability goals had been called collaboration goals

Highlights from Project Breakthrough
What do drones have to do with the SDGs? Is Paul Hawken the new Copernicus? Could Artificial Intelligence enable sustainable investing to go mainstream?

These are just some of the questions you will find answers to in this month's newsletter.

Project Breakthrough is a colloboration between Volans and the UN Global Compact. We seek to bring you the best thinking and practice from the world of sustainable innovation. For more regular updatesfollow us on Medium and Twitter @Breakthrough_IO.
Developed by PA Consulting, this new resource explores key emerging technologies and their implications for sustainable business. We start this week with Unmanned Air SystemsNext Generation RoboticsInternet of Things and Digital Agriculture. Still to come, an exploration of eight other technologies ranging from Artificial Intelligence to Blockchain. Stay tuned.
In our latest video, Zenia Tata of XPRIZE speaks about the power of marrying social entrepreneurship, breakthrough technologies and the wisdom of the crowd. Zenia will be speaking alongside John Elkington at the UNGC Making Global Goals Local Business event in Delhi this week. Join the 2-day event via Livestream from 4.30am EST / 9.30am BST / 2pm IST on Wednesday 26 April, or tune in to Zenia Tata at 3.30am EST / 8.30am BST / 1pm IST on Thursday 27 April.
'It is time to put natural cycles — particularly the carbon cycle — at the core of the sustainable business agenda,' argue John Elkington and Lorraine Smith. One candidate for the role of Copernicus, they suggest, is Paul Hawken, whose latest book Drawdown is billed as 'the most comprehensive plan ever proposed to reverse global warming.' A must-read!
The Business and Sustainable Development Commission has identifed SDG-related market opportunities worth at least $12 trillion a year by 2030. Unlocking these new markets will require a massive re-orientation of global financial flows, suggests Richard Roberts in our latest blog.
