let's linkin the greatest  LearningGeneration   see wjhat diferent peoples and copuntries are connecting at www.educationopen.com and www.economistlearning.com

- we do not agree that learning only reprsents 4% of world productiion - this is a disgraceful mathematical error spread by a dismal-nay-terrifying species of 

macroeconomist who value consuming things instead of growing people - we would argue that nature only put up with the human race while we improved next

generation's livelihoods- how say you? isabella@unacknowledgedgiant.com - if you wnat your comment published send us a contact point

welcome! humanity depends more on learning generation than anything we have ever heard about - very hard to choose one page introduction - cuorrently our format copies a version of the education commision's top links followed by some observations of what excited us about spending time with resources organised by the EC


leaders from over 30 nations - and more than a few concerend youth - assembled 18 septmber 2016 at UN new york to launch #learninggeneration

these are the reports from the first years colaboration


what happens next is up to all of us (7.5 billion people - half ahed 30 or less)

for example what has coding got to do with education youth want

,,About Our Worldwide Hub for Global Youth Journalism and Education

isabella@unacknowledgedgiant.com writes- congratulations–you have found our worldwide open space for valuing youth with special contributions by QuarterBillionGirls (research by China’s under 30 women) and 40 years of alumni relationsihps around the first jouramlist of the net generation (Norman Macrae 25 December 1976 Entrepreneurial Revolution –E0 1 2 3 4 5.

Global Youth demand the right to know the best value ways of learning sustainability’s 3 global and local collaboration languages: Chiense, English, and Coding Maths.,,,,

Notes on open space beyond classroom - needed for susdtainability and jobs creating entrepreneurs 

movement will champion 2 or 3 beliefs


belief 1 educators who value 21st c sustainability need to want their children to have the right to affordably and joyfully learn the 3 most global-social passports to valuing communities everywhere starting with history's least resourced or unluckiest people (eg refugees)- 


english and

 maths/coding affordably and brilliantly and curiously (not just standard examined) -


(amy - if i know you are a youth ambassador to these 3 rights then my friends in london can work the british council, british aid, bbc nature broadcaster and royal society influences on commonwealth and sustainability -more on scotland footnote 1 - urgency all this connects with brexit and whether european youth have any future in co-creating sustainability


 amy if you dont believe the english/chinese dynamic of that then we are wasting each others time (and everyone elses) because our valuation of each other begins with that communication around the world or relationships we linkin


 ma believes in all 3 of these pursuits of life- nobody i have met is a stronger advocate for role of coding and maths than john kiehl, as well as i hope the kind of people we search engineering schools for including mit dean - since 1984 people like gordon dryden have believed teachers cant be of full value to students unless they love to help children question the best coding can build www.thelearningweb.net- 10 million chinese families read gordon 1990s book on that- i asked you to read that before your first trip abroad to celebrate the 20th creative children olympiads back in july 2015

belief 2 something we seem to be calling global youth (freindshsip and investors) is about demanding under30s (half of the world's population and livelihoods) have as much right top strategy of where the future is going that anyone else- actually more right than the world's biggest organisations which have so far spun the UN to be the epicentre of lying about sustainability, just as until jim kim came along the world bank was the epicentre of lying about banking to end poverty- ask peter burgess to audit either organisation's historical impacts and legacy systems today if you feel lie is too strong a word- remember from november america's contributions to global youth will be slashed by trump or hilary- not what sustaining a free youth world needed - anyone who tracked all that went on at china's g20 needs to see more hope in jinping and ma than a system whose choice is a hilary or a trump 


 i first saw the essence of global youth owning some stake in sustainability very clearly written in the correspondence of you and maurice who after 2 trips to rome and 10 leadership interviews around the vatican I discovered  to be youth communications leader out of the vatican university projects on education and sustainable communities- i thought you were saying you needed project, networks as well as organisational funding either directed by youth or where partners insisted youth was on the board as much as anyone else- amy if you dont support this valuation of global youth please tell me how false my perception of you is


-take for example the education commission - it will be a disaster if youth's voice isnt in the middle of its direction- the reason why i am glad that we are the commission envoy to sir fazle abed is that his 80th birthday celebrations were about valuing girls empowerment and bring youth into the middle of educational leadership


if you are not happy with these 2 beliefs guiding what stories you most like being a voice for amy then we need to quit now towards a partnership brand charter for



the reason that 25 years ago people like ian ryder and i started to charter a brand valuation movement (based on the opposite maths to the big 5 accountants and the bog 3 ad agencies most of which io worked round the 1990s) concerns he conscious question - what would the world miss if this brand, this leadership/investment team didnt exist - this analysis probes through every promise being made by a human relationship system of productivities and demands - what are societies being promised on sustainability if anything, what are co-workers being promised about livelihoods and lifelong learning, what are customers being promised about their problems or need to have more knowhow , what are investors being promised about finance, and integrating all of this what are futures of youth being promised by such brand leadership



once we have that list agreed by the top people making decisions, they have to show how they run the organisation so that all the promises are win-win over time not just run round one promise such as extracting as much money as possible every 90 days (what maths could be more perfect for destroying sustainability than extract extract extract)


we also show that this isnt ONLY a moral thing , in today's borderless connected world transparency networkers have helped end over 100 multibillion dollar organisations that cheated society (from Enron to Arthur Andersen, from worldcom to parmalat ....) bad leaders just extracting money even as they spent billions of dollars a year on advertising promising society something



so any partners we find in loving the 3 literacies or valuing global youth must know they will be thrown out unless they keep proving they are living these beliefs


now ok I am prepared to bet anything that anyone who shares the above beliefs can gain from being as few degrees of separation from jack ma as possible and reciprocally jack ma can gain from such supporters- 


so amy are you leading the idea proposal to the world bank or not - you have about 24 hours left to complete the application - john caswell is in town start of the week , you can start discussing the next stage of your personal storytelling with him so[ you feel confident that these 2 beliefs are compatible with who you want to be; anyone linking in brand partnerships must have 100% pride and passion in the beliefs; if you dont have that then i need to find someone else to rely on branding how youth friend jack ma and ali baba and all the ideas that can be freed in the education commission if it is seen that youth celebrate jack ma's role in it




what i have just said is critically related to what you amy and one hundred thousand other youth mooced with jim kim -=

Are You Ready to Take It On? End Poverty by 2030



 this video here on how social movement partnerships are deigned and sustained - meg wheatley and harrison owen say something similar about pioneering self-organising systems - however the most viral way of making this point was a big ;lesson mit school of entrepreneurs was taught by a 25 year old who pioneers flying doctor service in nigeria- every african youth should celebrate her Air ambulance, Medico-logistics, Repatriation, Hospital transfers, Emergency services, Flying Doctors Nigeria.

Memorable one .liners - if south america had modeled education on top 25% national systems it could be thriving as much as Asia has in graduating its developing economies- i havent found enough details in the report to fully understand that remark. We need a south american investment group to follow that up

It would be great if the japanese who attended the summit could find out such basic action planning info as 

3 JAPAN 1 is any action group following up actions inside japan (including how governor of tokyo fits in) ; 2 regarding aid that japan influences in developing countries

if eg sumitomo group could assemble japanese interests it seemed that 

1 CHINA the best chinese group at UN to assemble around was the c100 - maybe both groups could start to share questions and answers

0 GLOBAL it seems to me that we need to do that for each country, as well as within some global institutions like UNICEF and world bank -and where possible get a youth coordinator in each search group

my guess is justin probably knows most answers but is also inundated by ,lots of questions- i wish we could host an open space on future of education (commission) on a date and near enough to his NY offices that he would want to attend but may need to wait until our friends know more about jack ma than he is being updated on

i know who is supposed to be responsible for education inside world bank and will check out whether she is connected with moving anything forward

4 SOUTH KOREA not exactly clear where ban ki-moon and kim share info with their home nation but ought to be searchable


31 SCOTLAND/UK i will work out how scotland gets debriefed by brown and clarify of commonwealth and english langiage institutes are being debriefed- have some emerging contacts at british council in china who ought to want to join in

32 FRANCE -To the extent that UNESCO is intended to be the UN's main  education practice network, its a pity its cocooned in French culture stuck in history and the EU's anti-youth policy makers- few people in usa know more than me on how anti-youth the top bureaucrats if the EU - my research on this goes back 20 years when EU was one of the clients of price waterhouse coopers that i did most work for- the pope's strasbourg speech is seminal 



5 UAE i think amy and my young friends will find a way to see how uae is connecting with the report


11 NIGERIA i know frances would love to find out what the nugerian bilionniare erally wants to support and eblieve amy has a nigerian journalist friend who might be able to help with prodding - in dc the african diaspora groups copuld start supporting each other co-searches actross africa

20 SOUTH AMERICA whether diaspora is similarly united is something amy and i have contacts to explore throough organisation of american states and world bank

21 MEXICO John Kiehls main youth in wall street netrwork first focus is mexico

asia is much more problematical- diaspora groups of asia dont seem to involve youth that much though i would love to be told this is a misperception -where can we start

if anyone can suggest ways we can build correspondents who can investigate localities they have relationships with , it would be great if we could unite intelligence searches 

i wish the education commission would use a whitebox struictired the way the huffington ;post is - that way education could become the biggest meta-portal- something thats needed if we are really launching #learninggeneration


41 BANGLADESH i am hopeful that youth friends and I can find the right way to take the commission report to brac and start getting their 100000 educators to channel questions through sir fazle abed across the commission

32 ITALY and 52 CANADA and 61 NEW ZEALAND are countries activating relatuinships with jack ma so it will be of special interest to identify an educational correspondent from those countries

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."

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.

=====================update sumer 2016:

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. So ali baba created a lifestyle -eg celebrate singles day 11/11 shopping virtually rather than the physically exhausting interaction in The West's biggest shopping days of the year)

SO 365/24/7 consumers of ali baba can choose who they value developing most with their purchasing power as well as searching merchandise with global image or local cultural joy

Alibaba has become china's and probably the word's largest retailing channel. It does this with next to no merchandise but brilliant coding so that every store front on its platforms delivers with equal reliability. Hunting out exactly how Ma forms partnerships so that big data analysis benefits the smallest enterprises and most local consumers ought to be a job of whomever is sustainability goals greatest economist.

Intriguingly to ensure he could compete with the chinese internet companies that raced to co-create the www that Ma had opened space for in china, Ma IPO'd Alibaba through a process 2010-2015 while developing his secret sustainability weapon under private ownership. AlIpay is china's number 1 financial inclusion delivery system and maybe global youth most humanly productive coding achievement to date.

Comparing china's top 10 internet properties with the west's is very interesting. Are the consuming behaviours on ali baba more sustainable than those on amazon or ebay or paypal? Are the learnng behaviours on baidu more sustaining of youth than on google or coursera or microsoft's linkedin. Time will tell but note how speaking english, chinese and coding (as well as mother tongue) are probably what educators anywhere on planet earth should NOW be most valuing their global youth's future freedom to thrive entrepreneurially around.
