as a diaspora scot my most valuable question:what rising ops & threats spun during UN's first 75 years?
source networks-practices of the economist 1993-1843; of james watt & adam smith since 1760?
OPS
FROM 1950S all engineering workers lives matter- source 5 places beyond old world east coast ie japan s.korea taiwan hk singapore
womens rural keynesianism =half a billion rural asian girls lives matter - source bangladesh & china from 1975
....front line community health servants matter renewed from 1975 started turning 20th c by eg nightingale uk barton us
every lifelomg student & teacher lives matter - started with zoom and in some asian nations earlier..
green lives matter- must start 2021 by going beyong nations borders ie un2.1
.THREATS
*the g8 as of 1945 fail to help each other solve different lives matter crises both inside and across borders
*going beyond slide ruler turns most economists into disgraceful political chicanery
*satellite communications used to dumb down eg tv advertise instead of celebrate lifelong action learning..
*300 trillion dollars of western pension money fails to rate sdg investments as asset grade

can we the peoples design a world in which each next child born has a great chance at life and livelihood. this is why nations met to unite at san francisco opera house 1945.Its a question that involves the design purpose of every market activity from health to education but seemed then and now to require priority clarification on investment and on peace building. because americans had kindly intervened twice to stop the old world from collapsing into wars there was an understanding the old world's empires .needed transforing- none more than btitain and japan the two islands which had taken over how most lives were organised in asia and africa.over the first 18 decades since machines and humans had evolved out of 1760s glasgow university - first engineer watt, first new market imagineer smith - the majority of the world's people still had no access to electricity grids, so little education, poor health, urgent subsistence challenges. instead of financial and public servants designed to help with livelihood and community development.it is reported that the moon race decade waved optimism all over the world- maybe so no human mission will be impossible. what happened next - was there an entrepreneurial way out for
the majority of asians who were still stuck in one of 3 broken financial systyems - either no banking for their needs, loan sharks or communism. this crisis
what if every famous speaker using the un platform had to also turn their speech into a max 5 minute video lesson- first audiences to rate these videos could be leading blacklivesmatter sports stars or other celebrities who wanted their young fans to do last mile service solutions...in our view if you work on implication of poverty museums sdgoal 1 that ever next baby - girl or boy's life matters - merits a chance at making most of life then depending on localities you audit which other goals matter first andjoin in worldwide new education mapping -swap solutions with places/peoples facing similar urgent system transformation needs and startup resources.......

Featured Guest: Emiliana Vegas, Senior Fellow and Co-Director, Center for Universal Education, Brookings Institution
Host: Jake Cho, Senior Manager, Global Business Coalition for Education
 
While technology has disrupted most sectors of the economy and changed how we communicate, access information, work, and even play, its impact on schools, teaching, and learning has been much more limited. Alejandro Ganimian, Emiliana Vegas and Rick Hess argue that the limited impact of technology in education is primarily due to its having been used to replace analog tools, without much consideration given to playing to technology’s comparative advantages. When schools use technology to enhance the work of teachers and to improve the quality and quantity of educational content, students will thrive.
