Let's join in celebrating investors in 2010s= youth's most productive decade

This ning  aims to offer a worldwide cross-sample of competitions, especially those aimed at promoting investments in youth led innovation. Norman Macrae Foundation enjoys being an unique interstate sponsor of Yunus social business competitions so you may see good job creating news in our reports of these competitions before it breaks anywhere else. We see Yunus inspired competitions as connecting youth with the deepest relationships in communities/societies needing social-economy  labs with the most pressing need for solutions. While other competitions may have more resources, we welcome collaboration parterships and open source apps. Additionally, we invite you to see the unique culture being planted in us states that run yunus competitions - that which converges all relevant academic capabilities in its public universities to linking to winning student competition entries. How else can job creation be locally accelerated faster and sustained deeper?

18 January 2013 is next opportunity for everyone to swarm and celebrate a whole state's students greatest community investment innovations with Dr Muhammad Yunus. Join us at Tuskegee Uni/Macon County, ALabama - area is one of the poorest areas of the United States. Many of the other communities in our state are also not very far on that list. Our communities need new ways of solving social problems and help fuel economic activities to get back on their feet.

On May 11, 2012, Prof. Muhammad Yunus (2006 Nobel Peace Prize winner and the Father of Microcredit) came to Tuskegee University as the commencement speaker. As you know, Prof. Yunus is only one of the seven people in the world who received Nobel Peace Prize, US Presidential Medal of Freedom, and the US Congressional Gold Medal. During his visit, he challenged the university and the community leaders to work together to change the name of the Tuskegee/Macon area from “One of the Poorest Areas” to a “Model Area” and use that model to help other communities. He also promised to work with our communities on this matter. As part of his commitment for our state, Prof. Yunus has been asking leaders from around the country to think about ways to get involved and help and visit the areas to get a first-hand understanding of the extent of the needs. Nobel Peace Laureate Yunus has also agreed to come to Tuskegee University on January 18th to hold a conference with local, state, and national leaders to discuss how he and others can help our communities. As you know, Prof. Yunus has been an advocate for the poor and promotes the idea of moving people out of welfare system and make them productive members of the society. He has successfully created many social businesses to solve local social problems and in the process created many jobs and fueled economic growth. We all can take advantage of his commitment to this state. We are inviting you to join this major initiative and be a “Partner” to take advantage of this opportunity to help communities. Together, we can discuss ideas and explore how to develop strategies to help all of the local communities in the State of Alabama and other states. We think that the State of Alabama could be a model state for the rest of the country in solving social problems by creating jobs.

what happens when all the resources of a state's education system rememebr to ask students on  how they would create jobs and help societies become labs for solutions of communities' greatest sustainability challenges ? - see North Carolina's first 60 days of progress on this journey

or for a more particular innovation challenge:   if just one day a year what would happen to a place like washington dc   (hotline 301 881 1655 ) if all the silos and conflicted parties that vesyed interests spin spent just one day listening to brightest youth ideas of how they would like to spend (some of) their lifetimes on challenges every community needs to relentlessly collaborate around to sustain better futures?

more on the sorts of projects students (case north carolina's25+ public colleges sept 2012) come up with when given a day to present to the world's number 1 pro-youth economist muhammad yunus  search other pioneering states such as georgia, oregon, alabama at http:/jobscompetitions.ning.com  or monitor the world's biggest live experiment when Tokyo listens to 12000 live youth on 30 january 2013

you can also blog with us on questions like- how many of youth's 10000 greatest job creators will see education as their main network of practice or how many of 10000 greatest job creators will see banking as their main collaboration network; you can also join the 2050 youth leaders we gave yunus books to in searches through http://yunuscity.ning.comqueries

Can America's poorest county launch 21st C Agri & Tech Uni

Can America's Uni of Poverty (also known as 21st C Eagri and Tech) connect enough knowhow and heroic youth out of america's poorest county for MIT to want to partner IT? Can the way usaid crackthenut 1 in feedingthefuture 2 help nutrition 3 of all american youth too? Why is MITcurrently one of the 2 most valuemultiplying uni paradigms in the world?

30 years ago MITs fans of entrpeneurship started jobs for youth competitions and has became the world's number 1 job creating alumni network- impacts it has gravitated include

  • epicentre of web - berners lee
  • the lab for exploring the greatest human apps of digital media - media lab
  • open course ware and www.edXonline.org  (previously MITx)
  • the convergence conference on everything humanly accessible with mobile reported most notably by student fellows from developing countries around the world
  • investors sustaining the most valuable multi-win models

tell us - chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk - if your country has a university partnering mit in job creating purpose or which is worldwide collaborator in student job competitions; my father's lifetime contributions to The Economistclarified why the only places to grow in our 21st -knowledge networking century- will be those who chnage economics to how well families and communities invest in youth's productivity

the good news is you dont have to be as highly resourced as MIT to get started in being a world's most exciting jhost of job creating competitions- america's number 2 host started round martin luther kingsi have a dream culture by linking in over 100 historically black universities out of atlanta; in 2012-2013 their jobs competitions are spreading up east and west coast with cheerleading from over 100 leaders including nobel laureate muhhamad yunus; a partership is also being formed with the free university movement that runs job competitions inspired by mandela out of s.africa with paetners such as branson, google and kiva

also as per this 1984 update of The Economists's mission to invest in youth, the most exciting fusions of new and old media will scale billion people interactions in community franchises youth can co=produce around the net generation's millennium goals Net Futures - The 2024 Report

some queries to breakthrough bankers bullshit-

see valuetrue on why invetsments aiming to compound more than 9% are usually going to destroy banks

in service and knowledge econoy- developing a replicable franchise is most common chalenge however there are few frabchsies that have taken less than 7 years to effect be these the origins of junk food like mcdonalds or of something important for youth's futures like a clean energy franchise- howver the good news is that such knowledge franchsies once fully developed as suddtainable models can get on a moores law if they have a goal that unites all stajkehlders productivities and demands in a uniquely pursposeful way - by a moores law we mean that they start doubling progress of their goal every few years (3 maximum, sometimes even annually) - grameen solar installations is atypical case - started in 1996 it took nearly 10 yers before it got on a doubling  by end 2010 half a million solar units installed; by end 2011 one million solar units installed- similar progress with jobs created eg among viilage girls who provide the after-service

your country has no future in any innovation youth most need knowledge netorking age to invest in until economists and bankers stop lying about how sustainable investment dynamics work
