we are in trouble - good trouble. Its as if everything we published from 73 years of Economist surveys with von neumann whom dad met in 1951 is history.

2025 Report - final cooperation edition - what goods can people unite where first to access 100 times more intel-tech per decade My family has been researching future ops and threats of 100 times more intel-tech since my birth year, 1951, when dad norman met von neumann. Or if you count my grandfathers' works since the 1920s. My mathernal grandad. Sir Kemmeth Kemp, mediated visions with Gandhi out of Bombay (today's Mumbai) as that places chief justice over 20 years, before his last project: writing up for London the legalese of the independence of the quarter of humans on the subcontinent of India. My paternal grandad was Britain's main diplomat connecting intel on the evils of Hitler and Stalin. Dad was home-schooled in British Embassies including Stalin's Moscow to his early teens. He spent his las days as a teen navigating planes in alled bomber command Burma. So when dad met von neumann and agreed on behalf of The Economist to apply his survey on goods, they both had deep experiences of bads. They both interpreted ending poverty as designing a world in which next girl born had a fair chance to live out of every community
Agendas of humanly valuable intel. Above all Neuman was interested in mapping way above zero sum value exchanges. Thus when humans share life critical community knowhow value multiplies in use unlike consuming up things or printing paper currencies detached from standards other than political whim Von neumann and friend Einstein concerns included: End asymetries of the 8 biggest powers that had ended in 2 world wars; celebrate inclusion the up to 70% of beings that the colonial era had left out of access to electricity grids or telecoms; Outlast stalin as the one (insane) leader who wholly disagreed with the actions the UN was founded to serve; Mediate the threats of the maths Goats two defining future contributions to to physical energy and brain power. Neumann pit it like this: the energy source my networks are helping to develop will make scientists both the most hated and wanted citizens of any country; my other project the computer's augmentation of intelligence will one day be even more important- and potentially even more dangerous.

Since the college year 2015-16 the world has lived with mediating the 17 sdgs framework, together with the emergence of UN2 digital roadmapping. And since spring 2016 at the 80th birthday party of Fazle Abed, the Digital Cooperation framework has emerged. Whilst this represents the cooperation development voices of the poorest billion womens and poorest billion men's development experiences since 1951, it also represents the new university brainstorming begun in 2001 between Fazle Abed and Mr and Mrs Steve Jobs. Neither Steve nor Fazle had completed 4 year pare certificated before more practical matters shaped their young adult lives. Thank goodness they weren't chained to academia's paper chases...
.THE nEWs. Although world trade growth may look as if it is driven by East-West shipping across pacific and atlantic oceans, North South counts exponentially too. Its the N-S Eurasian space that gestated the 2 world wars. Today the populations in charge of the Antarctic and Arctic circles may be a very small percentage, but climate models suggest supporting their innovations may be the borderless challenge around which risks of species extinction can be mitigated

BRAC WASH programme has a vast
experience with working in schools. From
2007-2015, the programme with support

Netherlands (EKN), worked in 5000 rural
secondary schools. Addionally, from
2014-2015, WASH facilies were
installed in 71 urban schools supported
by Splash, and 250 rural schools
supported by charity: water
771 million people in the world live without clean water. That’s nearly 1 in 10 people worldwide. The majority live in isolated areas and spend hours each day walking to collect water for their family. Not only does walking for water keep girls out of school, but it steals the time women could be using to earn an income. And the water often carries diseases that make everyone sick.

Sameh has introduced a new system of community participation in sanitation design, creating a sewage system for smaller villages to connect their household septic tanks by gravity-fed pipes to a communal filtering facility. These sewage systems are being promoted in villages who are deprived of hygienic living conditions and will not likely have government programs’ support in the next decade or two. Sameh encourages participation in the local communities for their own sanitation design and implementation, creating a sense of ownership and pride while improving environment and health conditions.
