==================================================

About the Program


Download the Full Program in EnglishDownload the Full Program in Chinese

High-performing education systems yield high-performing economies. As we progress into the twenty-first century, demand for creative and enterprising individuals continues to soar, especially as countries transition toward knowledge-based societies.

We believe that equitable and inclusive education provides a new, dynamic vision for education systems in all contexts globally. Yet quality education is often not provided equably, cheating learners out of opportunity and advancement. The challenge is present across the world, and is perhaps increasingly relevant in emerging countries such as China, as it faces rapid transitions.

hubs and supercities

hubs were new to us in london when we started researching the good hub guide in 2004
some of the history below
today our view is 2 kinds of hubs need twinning across cities so that we can linkin the greatest #learninggeneration

permission "needs" hubs- deep in a community - often a youth after hours space that schooling system doesnt offer

the hubs with the greatest coders
================================

we first started publishing the good hub guide in 2007 -our model was a bit like the consumers association good food guide - we wanted potential customers to report how collaborative hubs really were - the difference was -we didnt know then and dont know now - whether most economic hubs are virtual or real- it also seems that it depends how many you aim to collaboratively scale . For example if you can afford to plant 100000 like Mhammad Yunus achieved with TheGrameenBank in Bangladesh then you start with real places - the poorest villages in the world to be your social labs- then you invite all the most massively resourced technologists to come visit and linkin to solving one of human sustainability's biggest challenges

In days before the poorest villagers had electricity let alone mobile connectivity, the keynsian economic miracle of open system designs for ending rural poverty was achieved by grassroots networks of village mothers organsiers in hubs/centres of 60 by 60 weekly visits  =more at brac.tv and grameen.tv - young graduates lived in rural village branches of banking for poorest women- had 60 centers to empower per branch, had circles of 60 women micro-everything members at each centre to sustain

this begs the questions how many of youth's 10000 greatest job creators will hubs of the mobile digitally connected kind celebrate in youths greatest race - collaborating around 17 sustainability goals www.amychina.net

once nydev announces its millennial initiative, i wonder how fast Brooklyns and Ameriuca's leading civil rights college MEC could propose a collaboration atlas of 500 organisations most inviting teachers and students to linkin to sustainability community solutions -new york should set itself the sustainability millennials friendship goal of always having 100 feature in the overall top 500 atlas

The Collaboration Cafe by Marriah Star we who piloted open space of social business in 2008  would like to work out a win-win with the bronx perhaps lehman but according to dean rolles recommendations; i note that johns baltimore friend emmanuel aims to talk to clinton uni about some of johns apps; we need to linkin to conversations with clinton uni because they land at berkeley blum in early april which is usa's other main epicentre of projects compatible with latino/franciscan way; i am aware that dean rolle and our main latino connector in chile will be progressing ideas this weekend


perhaps most urgent of all is the submap of brooklyn, baltimore and san diego needed so that la maestra is understood to be usa's number 1 living curriculum of community building - a former first lady of south africa once called dhaka the open university of microcredit; at least in the 21st us context wherever la maestra links in its the benchmark for all sustainable community banking - trust king is briefing eel on this early in 2016
