CAN YOU HELP EDIT A SECTION OF THE BLOG TRANSITIONSWORLD

Monday, November 21, 2016- Happy Thanksgiving Week ( aka festival of harvest week)


history shows why health and food blockchains (and the world possible curricula 
they need for the greatest #learninggeneration to flourish) may be the easiest
 to transition with blockchain first - even for the most short-term bean counters
 the world has ever dealt with

in 1962 china starved 30 million people - what happened next? 
the way chinese leaders designed their economy transformed absolutely
 to agrarian keynes - value our rural farmers however small uniting 1 billion peoples brainpower around more efficient food production - efficiency 
(including local sustainability) of rice production went up 10 fold -

www.irri.org
this united the world of crop scientists from china to japan's nippon institute ,
 from borlaug in mexico-and usa to bangladesh at BRAC -
 the IRRI became openly networked out of the philippines. 

The curriculum of rice interfaced the most brilliant sustainability partnerships 
- while aiming to ensure the yin and yang - local food security- there is no point in just maximing how much rice monetary value the world produces 
if its not locally everywhere that famine might start up.

Quite how rice value chain of chains (or web of trustflows) was connected in an era 
that was still primitive in networks IT and MT (info technology and mobile etchnolgy) isnt fully known.

INTERMISSION STORIES FROM BOTTOM-UP HEALTH SERVICES
However a clue of how grassroots good news can be multiplied by heroic leadership 
 comes from the neighbouring challenge of worldwide health. 
Just over 100 years after the death of the founder of the Economist James Wilson 
from diarrhea (james life's number 1 purpose had been to end famine too
) a lab in the place james died which was then still called Calcutta gave St Theresa an amazing birthday present - the most massive life saving infants cure to be absolutely free - except every local mother needed to know how to boil water sugar and salt in the correct proportions.

In poorest hot humid localities - one in four infants died therough lack of oral rehydration knowhow.  This caused awful male cultures of breed 10 kids so that we have 2 living sons.
Hence the cultural revololution of The university of oral rehydration OR (and last mile health servants) started up in bangladesh with OR reaching every girl aged 9 or above. Although many people united in this heroic effort it wouldnt have happened without the briliant microifranchsiing research of fazle abed of brac and the extraordinary publicity talents of the then head of unicef james grant. Wherever James went to brreak bread with world leaders he started up this ritial. Instead of demanding to speak a few words of grace he would ask for boiling water, take a satchet of slat and sugar out of his pocket, and demonstrate the miracle of oral rehydration.

BRAC had gone on to become the world's largest and most collaborative NGO - peculiar since its in the once minor segment of bottom-up NGOs. Some people wrongly brand BRAC as just a microfinance network- in fact its the greatest education network 100000 people have ever built. There are many ways to demonstrate that if you visit brac but why not start with seeing how pride of place at brac university is the parterships curriculum called the James Grant School of Public (global ) health. Something Harvard was to start to form a replica of about a decade later as a parting gift celebrating the transition of Jim Kim from being co-leader of partners in health to the only Preferential Option Poor wporld bank leader ever

RETURNING TO THE STORY OF HOW RICE SAVED THE WORLD OF MICROECONOMICS
 Famine caused even 1970s macroeconomic professors to revolt - eg Muhammad yunus trained in teaching macroecoinomics from van der bilt (an extremely cutious experience for him as he arrived as a fulbright scholar in america south the year segregation was ended ) now found that teaching macroeceonomics at his hometown university of chittagong while a million people died of famine was obscene. So he took his students permanently out of the classroom and the bottom up grameen corporate university was accidentally formed (ie the corporate university of what became the only bank owned by poorest women from 1983 to 2010 -peculiarly this university's greatest training currciulum became solar for a boillion people writen up by nancy wimmer and confirmed at MIT development summit of 2014 sponsored by Abdul Latif networks out of the middle east) 

40 tears after yunus first vilage university, alibaba university was announced- ali baba had been studying the value of village networking in worldwide web job creation from 1994 but it was around 2014 that coders came to Jack Ma and informed him all the smartest big data analyis and partnership contracts can be mapoed around blockchain. They had just proved this case with development of ant financial as the most siustainable financial services system ever built now that smart phone contacting was possible - AND woith Jack was declaring his 50th birthday wish to get back to youth education and philanthropy tackling such grand chaneknges as the environment, blockchain peer to peer youth training networks around the world were the greatest birthday present any woorldwide web of humanity can be empowered by

Food freedom update from Yunus Edu States

So far, 4 states - Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina and Oregon have committed to converging all their public university resources around the most economic solutions pitched by students - this thread updates on food

Near top of this blog, you can see the food pitch that made local tv news out youth and yunus competition alabama

Here are details of an event in oregon being co-organised by andrew mount who itched aquaponics solution at youth and yunus oregon


Join us for a sumptuous farm-to-table meal at the historic Ashland Springs Hotel and learn of strategies to build resilience into the local economy.  We will be engaged in a poignant conversation around how our community can finance itself into a new era of sustainable growth.
Pioneering food-finance champion, Woody Tasch, founder/chairman of Slow Money Institute will be our keynote speaker.  Woody will be followed by several presenters currently developing the local food economy strategic plan and furthering the pursuit of food-security in the region.
Amy Pearl of Springboard Innovation will speak to novel investment mechanisms with the potential to stimulate economic growth across all sectors.
A short mixer will precede the buffet-style dinner.  Many leaders in the field of local finance will be in attendance.
This event is co-sponsored by Southern Oregon Aquaponics, Organic Produce Warehouse and Ashland Springs Hotel.

hello full purpose team and friends of pro-youth economics
at full purpose you might want to write a cheeky letter to director of sustainability at Danone Visitors address : 17, boulevard Haussmann 75 009 Paris. Mail address : 15, rue du Helder 75 439 Paris Cedex 09. FRANCE.

Emmanuel Faber: Executive Profile & Biography - Businessweek

Alexa Traffic Rank for businessweek.com: 933investing.businessweek.com/research/stocks/people/person.asp?...Cached - Similar
Mr. Emmanuel Faber has been a Deputy General Manager of Danone since January 1, 2011. Mr. Faber has been a Co-Chief Operating Officer of Koninklijke ...
paris now runs 5000 person millennium goal summits every september thanks to people like michael knaute www.convergences2015.org , and usually has one evening celebration of 10 best for world youth entrepreneurs

yunus books on social business dont quite tell the whole story of how it was emmanuel's idea to start global social business partnering and danone www.danonecommunities.com has the only official (ie publicly regulated) social business fund, and of course nutrition is this fund's number 1 purpose- back when emmanuel was a student at HEC in Paris his first internship was with mother theresa's in calcutta- he decided that once he got on a board of a globally branded company he would try and revolutionise corporate responsibility leadership - so global social busienss partnering was a 20 year idea in his minds eye

however while they might like to hear early good news of the full purpose story (and wider hunger networks of kate) they wouldnt formally consider you until you have a final product concept - one you can market with consumers in alabama - and you would also get stuck with social business model which isnt necessarily what I advise given the variety of risks you appear to be taking on in spite of me trying to be a good friend to yunus


its also the case that danonecommunities has its own major festival of youth typically in may so it may be the right time to be cheeky
my friend naila who judged in a parallel room and has worked for many years as leader of yunus technology division has more direct contact with top of danone - you might want to try and convince her of your rapidly evolving momentum/success as each of us has different judging criteria let alone different views of how to help yunus most

what else fascinates me most about danone
while you all have heard of grameen danone yogurt they have extended into a similar partnhership in china but this time the infant product is nutrional grain based -ie you dont need chilled distribution - partners in the china venture of danone communities include probably china's number 1 infant nutrition medical network as well as GAIN in switzerland a leading nutrition NGO

Could I introduce you to Andrew Mount whose aquaponics team placed 3rd at Oregon. Since then I have realised that Andrew is far further advanced than any other team I know of - his passion is cataloguing how aquaponics could help almost any society start to regain food security and restore its natural capital ; some of his experiments are being evaluated by the ecologist paul hawken; (it was paul hawken's ecology of commerce that caused Georgia's late great Ray Anderson to challenge any ceo to develop a half-generation plan to go zero-carbon taking his own industry carpet tiles as a successful example )
he's an uber-networker and collaboration entrepreneur in aquaponics; I assume this is a core practice area of any 21st C AG&TECH be this the newly emerging one in alabama or what makes Yunus Japan teams at Kyushu great at the crop science projects they mobilise partnerships round. (Incidentally the Gerogia Tech female professor I introduced you to regarding literacy team project is celebrated by usaid for her partnership with stellenbosch - a south african university I associate with sustainability agri. Obama's head of USAID's number 1 passion is Borlaug crop science and so the refarming of www.feedthefuture.gov )
Could you chat so that you can value the timeliness and significance of Andrew's actions and connections. Andrew I suggest you phone Dr Bhuiyan at 404 441 7881
I will write in a different mail why "brand permission" challenges that many of us are facing with engaging top decision-makers in DC need to find a way of celebrating a handful of student competitions that are most advanced- hopefully with Dr Yunus taking a second reprise at how to co-brand with a few cases of teams (like Andrew's) ready to most scale. For example if people like I am to get a meeting with ceo of united nations foundation in washington DC, who I was sitting next to at Yunus' investiture in Glasgow, I really need a yunus endorsed write-up of the most exciting cases to date from all student competitions
all the best thanksgivings: chris macrae bethesda 301 881 1655
