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?

i have a lot of questions and a few part answers my friends and i work on most
one question- whats the simplest way to share diverse question/answers- is it a listserve, a wikipedia
one type of answer - i visited bangladesh 15 times since 2996 because i wanted to write up both solutions and partners of the first wise laureate sir fazle abed - happy to study that by issue, or place with anyone on a learning journey- oddly what i havent been able to find out is who in wise has studied everything they could from abed- this isnt to criticise wise- fazle abed was concerned his knowledge didnt get lost so he set up a university coalition for those partners over 50 years who continuously wanted to help him- those who want to be empowering public servants of girls sdgs shouldnt get into student loan debt to at least know what fazle and nearly a billion asian girls discovered with him
some specific examples - i have come across 2 huge refugee education coalitions- wises Education Above All Foundation and a second one updated by 20 un leaders called Home - educationcannotwait -if you want links to 20 people eg at unicef unesco un and various hi level funds connecting this pls tell me
when it comes to specific places brac worked with direct partnerships in some muslim african countries whilst in others like kenya there is no direct transfer but still a lot that can be applied systematically
if you are kenyan you know and should be proud of the origin of the world changing text mobile finance mpesa- over 10+ years the people who started mpesa came together with fazle abed to create http://www.bkash.com - basically this was needed in bangladesh to make best of manual and hi-tech fin services for the poorest- there has been an update at the un https://digitalfinancingtaskforce.org/ where kenya's central bank is one of the big players
at brac village health and food security services, livelihood education, finance services were never separated- girls built their rural nation by applying knowhow in all of these areas- if however you want to start with questions about eg your country's education system then there are at least 5 different types of study
adult livelihoods where often the adult hadnt had much schooling at all
also specific skills- so if you want to train to do what eg brac village health workers do there.s basically in bangladesh they have an apprentice club where you are mainly taught peer to peer- almost any age from 12 up could be suited to apprenticeship- what i sidnt expect to discover was the first experts who shared their knowhow with abed in the 1970s were health servants including how to eng cholera and indeed how to contain infectious diseases by maximising village community intelligence
if you live in nairobi you have a great but now elderly resource ingrid munro origin of jamii bora before it was taken over- outstanding education models bridges international and the coding school moringa , and arguably one of the few hub movements that helped develop a nation ihub- just a sample -always interested to hear of sustainable replicable solutions
20 student blogs include
