NYopenspace    dear gordon in new zealand @ www.thelearningweb.net 


i suggest you start here economistuniversity.com creative children -key to 21st c economics and sustainability-  while its all taken from Home | the Education Commission its taken me hours to try and search links to the top 30 presenters in gordon browns world of the future of education- he seems to specialise on refugees and eg girls in nigeria; his chief of staff justin van fleet specialises on jack am and listening to mad people like me



STREAM SUNDAY 4pm NY facebook.com/educommission

working groups yuxuan changes everything via lowrey at tsinghua , wise at qatar, yale in chjna villages, african youth out of liberia =if anyne really has stuff to help her -nobody i will ver meet connects futures of quarter of billion girls like her

stephanie and frances connect african youth in very deep ways , and stephanie also finds out who at un does anything with youth other than PR

kiehl unites supercoders like jose jayfus  across nyu mit columbia uni, wolfram and wherever you help him linkin-ditto with mjusic and arts but cant keep up with his who's who in that world 

ian something similar out of london and uo to its hi society and commonwealth visions

david and amy open space the impossible if you invite them

al is inner city blacks only real solution in 8 yeras of looking round networks obama claimed to empower but didnt (eg the unions in schools and historicaly black coleges are a nightmare but he doesnt even understand that aftre 20 yeras as a community builder in chicago - i dunno- maybe a does of trump is whats needed for americans to escape from being ever more cheated by mass media and lawyers)

sure people can correct me (how else can i learn)- in the west I have no idea any longer who are public servants and who are dis-servants but oddly feel comfier in china than almost anywhere - maybe its just i cant translate but go a guided tour with yuxuan/amy and you'd see a different world than wesgtern media chains you to

Subject: what public details online to tune in to UN education summit this weekend


I cannot find any reference anywhere about the details of the UN education summit, including any live sites where anyone can to or read transctipts of presentations, including Jackk Ma in particular.

Normally www.news.google.com has a very thorough of main news selections from over 25,000 news sites, with the main Englsh-language site as mentioned in this sentence.

Or does the UN itself provide  a live streaming feed?

I have never seen the UN education summit mentioned anywhere in any New Zealand medium.

Perhaps you can help me.

Best wishes.



...........................................................................................................................................................................................I what if youth 10 greatest jobs projects out of every future capital became one new world map?  this crazily urgent question illustrated among capitals of english language; what if 10 valuing youth projects hubbed round friends of kiehl (broadway movie studio soundtrackny out of new york and linked in with quest around friends of ryder (the connector of 10 best for youth projects linkedin to the city of london's guild of marketirs our handshake is our bond and projecteveryone)- what could hgobal uyouth be celebrating if such a map was shared across future capitals-


i sort of assume kiehl is always in centre of coding and maths and systems -anyhow any youth he introduces me in this field are absolutely brilliant

year 45 of economists's work on will netgen be sustainable

leads me to  3 opposite future views of who connects sustainability if under 30s are to recover that for the wj=hole human race in time- china and quarter billion young chinese females are pivotal in all of them


polite descriptions of 1-3 to come 


or in a brexit world i would prefer bbc2. ie to get connections right firs between bangaldesh knowhow on end poverty and designing schools , the english language and commonwealth culture of britain, and chunese and leapfrog coding out of china- anyhow thats me becasue i believe the first 15 years of milennial goals were greenwashinhg and I dont like being beholden to politicians (exp[ecially obama trup or clinton) not citizens to make bottom up networks  viralsie positively


so is there an amy project in kiehl-ryder top 10

amy's latest idea begins with taking rich 12th graders and parents from her home city to preview ceg new york they know they have a university place at; so they have a pre-qlumni club of connections with local ny inisders who know the most trusted solutions out of eg new yrok - that can fit with her brother in law business; and branch into othr exchnage and ultimately give back by choosing more and more visits to where youth need to linkin sustainability's project everyone


if i have correctly undersytood that idea amy its needs you mainly selling it out of china

you can trust eg kiehl and marinez and stephanie and dianne and others who you inspire to start to assemble a tour and of course you can do flying visits to check it out


also i hear that kiehl and ian will try best to meet while kiehl is in windsor castle - so amy maybe i should sponsor you to go to windsor


i will prepare what my uk map of connections looks like


I hear from marinez that most of his visits are to shenzhen and he may start up an office there and mel king is the go to civic fab lab to visit in boston and yes every connection at least on fab labs between boston and shenzehn is known to jose  and mel- so its good that the chinese lady working longest on dianne projects ids also shenzhen based


and of course the deepest china valuing youth contact of all is having an insiders guide to tsinghua and so to both business and political leaders through yuxuan


look foward to hearing completely differet pilot routes around sustainably investing in youth? - how would you edit above-


 shoutout to david i can see in his descriptions and in parallel ones of jose, how both human and machine technologies of brainstorming went wrong and why we know people who can return such massive opportunity meetups to basics and why hubs cant improve the world without this facilitation skill


stephanie has quite a lot of interviews of youth in world bank (eg 1) and un to report - can i suggest that monday morning 10am soundyrack for those in enw york - we try and issue a decalarion of soundtrack on what we love most of connecting last 5 days as well as questions to chief of staff of UN education envoy on action opportunities following sundays radical un presentations on future of education


best chris 


day 4 extracts of open space


Dear Gordon, and friends -  i am looking for an oversimplification to give under30s confidence to form learning friendships everywhere particularly where their elders made national enemies

i think the over simplification is approximately:  in the industrial age big nations beat up on each other because you needed more and more carbon and physical stuff- and once you were consuming  more than your nations natural resources you went and plundered it elsewhere- certainly that was the systemic causes of europes world wars

learning's economy (when the only real sustainable growth is growth of human potential) is the opposite - app's knowhow multiplies value in open networking use; the greatest apps are being designed out of communities with the least and then rapidly scaled across all analagous communities


how do we explain that the mediation and valuation of everything is totally different if your model of your nations success ultimately depends on being biggest to get anything you want (or to own the global casino even when your subprime behaviors bust it) 


 best at apping social solutions that grow people without consuming eg carbon out of the places that eg never had carbon or electricity grids or other infrastructures carbon distributed

 This can be basic to why every innovation jack ma does and Jinping permits, and can be celebrated by youth if a global friendship of elders and youth around jack ma system designs is celebrated

he designs retails and supply channels to include SMEs especially village or geographically isolated ones -search new world trade paradigm EWTP hangzhou    1

Image result for ewtp hangzhouImage result for ewtp hangzhouImage result for ewtp hangzhou


his alumni design digital finance by and for the peoples not the richest gamblers

he built friendships out of english and chinese language and now wants to do that with any universally local curricula - eg green

their oriental unity shares a sort of zen spirit you may call me mad but i am not stupid and proves that by experimenting small replicating big and then getting the big data analysed to support the small; unlike zuckenbergs type of giving billanthropist ma invest back his billions in the next global data partnership that needs to be analysed to empower (growing) people not control big- for example his partnerships need to be world best at blockchain so as to sustain digital financial inclusion


i was devastated when dad showed me the order of play of the 2025 report back in 1984; we had written it virtually he in ,london, me in paris; I had put down all the scenarios on the digital learning side but there he was with 5 chapters of why in 1984 it was time critical to prepare for berlin wall; america needed to partner russia in ending all the rival dictatorships they had sponsored in neighbouring countries across southern hemisphere; the western reviewers never got beyond tearing this unconventional wisdom apart; and for some reason the book was never published in the east even though it was those billions of peoples growth father had integrated into the economist itself being a global views space




this maths error sinee it also conflicts witj nature's evolution rules cannot support our human race


all in all none of fathers colleagues wholly understood how opposite a model of economics was needed for win-win designs- how zero sium currency gamed were totally wrong for getting to the open learning economy


whats interesting is china's position now- it can ask the 20 biggest countries which want to partner; while it can also hunt 20 smallest countries or regions who are best at the enew education model


i understand anyway we word above will cause offence with some people- spending 10 time more on arms than education is not sustainable; pretending your nation if its biggest at carbon guzzling and richest isnt the one that needs to transform most if it has any chnge of valuing global youth or sustainability goals is a madeeingly false mindset however much it is designed into the monopolies that are each global professions rules


i need the simplest possible way to descrobe above so that peoplelike amy and yuxuan can peer to peer connect it both with china youth and everywhere they serve like yuxuan's liberia and middle east as well as the poerst vilagesd in china


i also need to see if anyone will linkin to soros- he scripted the russdian scenario with farher and is probably the last economist left standing of the sort my father , keynsians, james wilson or adm smith would understand


Can you tell me gordon how doies one put this politely whilst not wavering from the age we need youth to value needs opposite metrics than the ones governoig 99% of the west's thousand largest organisations

Alibaba founder Jack Ma unveils ambitious plan

Mission: 100 million new jobs

By Dana McCauley

He already runs the world's biggest online shopping company, but Alibaba founder Jack Ma is not satisfied.

The Chinese billionaire has unveiled an even more ambitious plan to expand the company's reach across the globe, creating 100 million new jobs and transforming the global economy to create a more equitable world.

It may sound pie-in-the-sky, but the goal forms part of mission statement of the US$261 billion company's visionary executive chairman.

In a letter to shareholders, Ma outlined Alibaba's achievements of the past financial year - including a gross merchandise turnover of more than $195 billion (1 trillion RMB), an "unprecedented" figure - before looking to the future.

"We have more than 430 million annual active buyers, which means one out of every three individuals in China has made a purchase on our retail marketplaces," Ma wrote.

But, he said, while proud of Alibaba's online shopping achievements, "we want to do far more", saying that the benefits of globalisation had not been spread evenly, but that "digital disruption will bring us closer to a level playing field for young people and small businesses".

"We are not merely trying to shift buy/sell transactions from offline to online, nor are we changing conventional digital marketing models to squeeze out a little additional profit," he wrote.

"We are working to create the fundamental digital and physical infrastructure for the future of commerce, which includes marketplaces, payments, logistics, cloud computing, big data and a host of other fields."

The Alibaba group of companies, founded in 1999, accounts for 60 per cent of all Chinese online sales, and this year overtook Walmart as the world's largest retailer.


It has made Ma the second richest man in Asia, with a net worth of US$28.5 billion.


It's through cloud computing that Alibaba aims to expand its reach, and the company has been investing in the technology as part of a strategy that sees shoppers' data as the contemporary equivalent of mineral riches.

"Over the next 30 years, with computing power as the new 'technology breakthrough' and data as the new 'natural resource,' the landscape of retail, financial services, manufacturing and entertainment will be transformed," Ma wrote, forecasting a decades-long period of transformation.

"The internet revolution is a historical inflection point, much like when electricity was introduced, and it may have an even greater impact," he predicted.

Alibaba's mission, he said, was to "empower merchants with the ability to transform and upgrade their businesses for the future" and "help companies all over the world to grow".

"We believe, the commerce infrastructure we have created in China - marketplaces, payments, logistics, cloud computing and big data, all working in concert - can be applied on a global scale to lift up small and medium businesses and ordinary consumers around the world."

Eight years after launching, Alibaba Cloud hosts 35 per cent of Chinese websites, while delivering cloud computing and big data services.


Ma said Alibaba was constantly adapting to the changing e-commerce environment, as staying at the forefront of innovation was key to its continued success.

"In the coming years, we anticipate the birth of a re-imagined retail industry driven by the integration of online, offline, logistics and data across a single value chain," he said.

"With e-commerce itself rapidly becoming a "traditional business," pure e-commerce players will soon face tremendous challenges."

A shift to mobile revenue was one such change, he said, with mobile climbing from a single-digit percentage to three-years of total revenue from Alibaba's Chinese retail marketplaces, in the space of two years.

"This is why we are adapting, and it's why we strive to play a major role in the advancement of this new economic environment," Ma said.

Innovations like Alibaba's Qianniu app, which helps online businesses to improve sales and marketing while enhancing efficiency, were an example of the type of projects the company aimed to focus on.

"In 20 years, we hope to serve two billion consumers around the world, empower 10 million profitable businesses and create 100 million jobs," Ma said, adding: "This will be an even more difficult journey than the one behind us."


LISTEN : Newstalk ZB Political Editor Barry Soper speaks to Andrew Dickens on KPMG Early Edition

Mr Ma - who's worth around $50 billion - met with John Key in Beijing late yesterday. He made his money through founding the online commerce platform Ali Baba.

Standing alongside the Prime Minister, he heaped praise on the country, which he says is loved by many Chinese.

"At least 20 of my colleagues retired from Ali Baba. They're all very young, in their 40s, they all go to New Zealand."

"I asked what they do apart from the golf and green things and they say it's the people there."

It wasn't all social, with the Chinese billionaire also talking business.

Jack Ma told the entrepreneurs luncheon Kiwi businesspeople find it difficult to access the Chinese market.

Mr Ma said he wants to make that easier with his multi-platform organisation.

"We have Ali Baba University. We would either have courses in New Zealand or invite the entrepreneurs in New Zealand to stay in China for two weeks for training."

"The second is that we're going to open an Ali Baba business embassy next year in New Zealand."

John Key is in China meeting business and political leaders.



Innovation "Made in China" - The Case of Alibaba and the role of Net-based Small Business

Innovation is a key driver for economic development and social progress and small business is one of the best ways for people to express their willingness and capability to innovate.  Pervasive business ownership has, therefore, been the foundation in many societies for the continued improvement of people’s economic wellbeing. In the People’ Republic of China, however, private business ownership was prohibited between 1957 and 1978. Productive innovations were extremely restricted and as a consequence, China’s economy was on the verge of collapse by the end of 1978. The Chinese people had suffered a historic setback.

Alibaba’s growth, driven by unleashing grassroots entrepreneurship, has become an exemplar of China’s innovation in the 21st century.  Started by 18 young people in 1999, Alibaba has grown into a giant global internet platform and has made many invaluable contributions to China’s progress. Highlighting the importance of pervasive small business ownership in unleashing grassroots innovation and improving economic wellbeing, Professor Lowrey will discuss Alibaba’s innovative strategies and explain the economic theory behind its inspiring success.




Dr. Ying Lowrey is Professor of Economics at Tsinghua University and Deputy Director of the Tsinghua Research Center for Chinese Entrepreneurs, and a member of the Academic Committee for Alibaba Group Research Institute. Her teaching and research interests include economics of innovation and entrepreneurship in the internet and platform economy, the modern microfinance market, business demographics, characteristics of business owners, and the role of free enterprise and competition in the macroeconomy. 

She received her economics Ph.D. from Duke University, economics MA from Yale University and mathematics BS from Wuhan University. Before joining Tsinghua University in 2012, she served as senior economist at the Office of Advocacy, U.S. Small Business Administration and has taught economics at George Washington University and San Diego State University.

In 1995 he was sent to the usa on an exchange mission and encountered the worldwideweb - then unknown in China. He determined the www would be the biggest job creating innovation of his (or his generations) life and hopefully of every Chinese entrepreneur he could valuably link into.

Over the next 15 years his wizard coding teams went from something that was little more than an electronic yellow pages for small businesses to conceiving sustainability generation's 2 greatest retailing platforms china or the world may ever have seen..

the taobao platform is the most valuable job creating concept retailers have ever mediated because it reverses the western trend of globalisiation of retailers, bankers and big corporations squeezing out local and small enterprises from having a market; how taobao did that is an extraordinarily detailed story but note how Ma was concerned to ensure even the most cut-off of Chinese villagers could start up on tao bao (rural ecommerce is one of the innovations that Ma has led the www purpose to linkin)

His other mall was pitched at the more usual high cost fashions of big global merchandisers. Because of complex property laws in chinese cities, most expensive retailers are not much of a joy to shop in.
