This would be a most wonderful new year gift to sustainable youth's world - bit of brain waving follows-
As a maths and media valuation guy I have been researching this for about 15 years from 2 open innovation angles
1 how to reduce degrees of separation from the average worldwide of 6 to about 2.5 -in other words, i am two and half personal introductions away from anyone with sustainability water knowhow or water for communities solution budget holders
2 economistwater.com - if there was a dream correspondents network within The Economist (or world service broadcasting of the bbc) for ending death or loss of livelihoods by open society water intelligence, who would those correspondents be
15 years ago i was a volunteer for the 20 country knowledge management community of the European Union and mapping whos who of water angel networking was one of the projects i recommended open spacing across the continent- we never quite got there- unfortunately all of EU ITC reported into some not so good bankers in luxembourg and switzerland but at least this told my friends where not to bother water mapping. This re-emerged as an issue in 2008 while i was editing graemeenveolia.com which many had hoped would globalise water as a social business market
In brazil water was the main social action interest of lula before he became president- brazil has 30% of the worlds underground freshwater reserves and he wanted these permanently owned by the people not sold off to the nestles and coca-colas of this world; he partnered the roman catholic church in a year of water empowering over 9000 parish distribution points on the peoples knowledge on the value of water and he made sure this was prominently understood at the world social forum - a network organised out of brazil and which when he became president he red eyed between and the world economic forum which has always been the main world forum for inter-hemisphere befriending arab and then chinese partners/investors
Recently while waiting for you to fly into the waldorf astoria hotel, rachel ruto said the next thing she wanted research on was womens empowerment water projects- this gave me an updatable excuse to write to relevant kenyan knowledge brokers eg inside the world bank and their coursera partnership studio, at the organisation of american states, around the bottom up world of water entrepreneurs such as paul polak and his kenyan partners in new york acumen's patient capital bank which through clan Novogratz is not very transparently joined to ted.com
Such research tells me who is ready to open up knowhow and who isnt, By itself its inactionable- i mean transparency's next stage round blocking this information would be to have rutos chief of staff ring the people up who didnt respond to my water survey and at the same time as declare an open space of water near enough google's headquarters in new york or baidu us in mountain view to ripple up
In search of 40 years of my fathers logic <6 page paper attached>, learning water will only be a planet-wide free market when top people see that the millennials are unstoppably moving this on through open spaces, ihubs, hackathons and since chiina is lead decision maker on all naturally broken systems of sustainability cool chinese millennial friendship networks
Enter amy 929 321 2149 the only person i would trust to accelerate water knowledge from my linkedin to all of her friends peer to peer action learning groups.
I dont really understand why you dont value her as china's most determined youth ambassador being wholly on www.yazmi.com and sustainable Ethiopia's side.
