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
to help continue macrae search for sdg generation rsvp chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk or partner abeduni.com.
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.......
biggest colab search of 2018 where is damo extending its intercity adcademy; biggest question of 2017:where is Ali Baba University inviting partnerships? Examples:
New Zealand ... Germany ...UN 1 2 3 - Chinese only Aliresearch.com

GirlsWorldBank bids you welcome : happy job creating if you want to study sustainability goals job creation go study poverty first- locally- POP1-2-3 search out/celebrate your profession's world class expert who has 1 lived with poor, 2 as well as innovated her profession with the poor diagnosed system traps of poverty, and 3 sees it as sin not to priorities use of modern tech to end history's -sadly sport charities have been the worst in abusing girls usgynmaistics and maing a few men rich eg fifa instead of community building - will this end at alibaba olympics

    Plenary 1, University Leadership for the Decade of Action sept20 11pm The session will showcase innovative approaches that universities in the Asia/Pacific region are implementing to increase their societal value and impact on the SDGs, as well as the challenges and opportunities to accelerate these actions and make them part of a new “business-as-usual” for universities. The session is partially in response to the challenge made by President Mike Crowe of Arizona State University at a recent event of the UN Higher Education Sustainability Initiative, that universities need to change the way they operate and be more connected to the community to have real impact.Speakers:
    John Thwaites, Chair, Monash Sustainable Development Institute (Moderator)

    Plenary 5, Pathways for Progress in Climate Change Education in the US sept21 16.00-17.00This panel will reflect on the treatment of Climate Change Education in the U.S. Education system. It will look at both non-formal and formal pathways to provide life-long learning opportunities to learners. The panel will provide a critical perspective on the educational gaps so far and will discuss the types of interventions needed to fill those gaps. More specifically, the panel will investigate how do children learn about the environment? What kind of support can the education systems (formal and non-formal) provide to strengthen student learning? Finally, the panel will discuss, how can communities and informal networks contribute towards climate change education? The panel will look at key education policies in the U.S. context and suggest concrete ways in which Climate Change Education can be made more effective in imparting knowledge as well as changing behaviors.

    The devastating health and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have exposed and exacerbated stark inequalities and vulnerabilities in the United States. At the same time, protests sparked by the tragic killing of George Floyd have put the spotlight on America’s long history of racial injustice. The commitment to equity, justice, and environmental preservation reflected in the sustainable development goals (SDGs) is more critical today than ever, a foundation to respond to these crises and to build a future that leaves no one behind. Building off a successful first gathering last year on the margins of the UN General Assembly, this event will showcase local innovation, leadership, actions, and commitments from all parts of the American society, including cities, businesses, universities, philanthropy, and youth activists. Their leadership is crucial to a recovery that advances equity and sustainability here at home, and provides a fundamental basis for U.S. credibility and leadership abroad on the defining issues of our day.

    On Wednesday, September 16, from 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. EDT, the Brookings Institution and the UN Foundation will cohost a high-level virtual event to showcase the power of the SDGs in the United States.

    Viewers can submit questions by emailing events@brookings.edu or via Twitter using #USAforSDGs.
