in new york wed afternoon and thursday next week
do any of these questions interest you -if so who should we try to meet if you are in town?

q1 whether brooklyn maximises youth in development, african dispora, womens networks now that 1776 has come to town

q1a whether baltimore model around king and friends is the most collaborative for any supercity space that african american entrepreneurs want to conscious maximise networks through 

q2 can we linkin tech geniuses and engineering schools - kiehls friend jose has a world class fab lab in ny; we still havent worked out action connections with mit, columbia uni , nyu

q2a do black americans want to be one of lead exchange groups of 1000 students travelling every 4 months to college in china that daniel works for

q2b while the education commission headquartered in new york has spent most time since september on uganda and malawi - its not been connecting positive tech groups - i know who is in new york at World Possible 

i learnt on tuesday that the commission is spending a whole week in kenya early may - that will probably be the last time to impact what EC consequences on africa are -since so many people are piling into the ec to try and add to the financial gravy train - too few are exploring education change- this is being done by wise instead - fortunately wise is compiling ever better maps of who can help future of jobs education in africa even as education commission seems to be spiralling the wrong way

the commission hasnt linked in the worldwide movement on peer to peer adolescent health even after any years of research at lancet and presentation at youth in development by george patton- its disconnecting all the girls clubs brac had helped found across africa; 

frankly there are so many places around the world other than africa where i understand who I am working with that unless african diaspora sort out what they want to do with tech in education in africa very soon - i see no point banging my head against washington's false models of aid in africa when at least the east has smart ones  

its also failing to be of any interest to jack ma or the leading edge issues that g20 youth networkers aim to innovate across latin cultures in 2018 and india's coding culture sin 2019- india and africa have the same sort of crosis in yterms of only tech china change schools fast enough- the world bank knowledge fest that prita and steve and i attended 2 weeks ago mainly got the wrong end of the stick on this - a serious problem as the world bank is currently writing up its first ever report on education as being core toi development

amy and you never presented plan back in spite of so many multipliers that had been conne cetd through world bank youth in development crowdfunding, challenge presented  by 30 national leaders admitting half of youth will be unemployable unless we open space change around youth, connections with african youth empowerment summkit lout of liberia were not made or at least not reported back in any way that could have informed hubs in us cities that i pass through

this is the most critical time of year if we are to brief hundreds of student unions on liberty they could be connecting when they come back for year of 2017-2018 - 

stephanie if you are not in ny next week is there anyone in dc or baltimore king and I should be talking to whom you see as advancing same values as you want

alumni of KIM 
curriculum of tao - can you help amy's editorial peers? 
congratulations on your and intel contract to curate content for 300000 kenyan catholic children- I
am wondering how to rebrief the people in vatican university whom i first discussed yazmi with 2 years ago; now that jim  kim has been reconfirmed for another 5 years at the world bank, he needs to keep youth positive until trump gets that america cant be great without its youth trusting they can be great

would it be the right time for you to present to the youth leaders of this if i can fix such?
here is end of year note- this network has reformed since young african world bank summit 2 summers ago-
at the time i knew the chair of both the young africa and the original africa-wide network inside the world bank?   chris macrae thanks china - from 3.5 billion sustainability students 

Forever Young! 
Investment in Africa is growing as the years go by. Recently Microsoft founder Bill Gates pledged to donate $5 billion towards African Development over the next 5 years. Gates who for long has been an ally for Africans is continuing the friendship into the future. The handsome donation will go towards investing in the youth throughout the continent. With such a young vibrant population, the world must take notice to a mobilized diaspora. 

Addis Ideas is doing its part in the mobilization. With our platform, we will provide members of the diaspora with an open forum to create, innovate, and cultivate their ideas.

gordon brown has assembled revolutionary leaders of education starting with jack ma, jim kim, ...
south africa seems to be represented by graca machel- is she likely to mention your work in the free university's million jobs map and mandela extranet or  will she stay focused on gender issues?

We are trying to ensure the conversation sustains way beyond  one UN presentation
-all ideas on how to do this most welcome

WE have some opportunity to brief gordon browns chief of staff in new york and my friends in glasgow have some opportunities to get to gordon and so on around the world wherever we are linked in by global youth platforms, coders, hubs hackathons etc

all the best chris macrae
