breaking good news- report from rome 4 day retreat and celebration of http://premiosciacca.it

also help wanted in pdatin millennials 17 goal-reaalted curricula of sustainability at www.amychina.net
i am just writing a real time report connecting my observations of windsor castle UN sustainability goals retreat, premio sciacca, historically black community agents across the states (rome's nobel peace/green summit was supposed to link them in out of atlanta this week but then black communities were trashed due to greed of different agents who had claimed this event would be bigger for regional regeneration than the olympics - i hope rome gets 2024 olympics but doesnt make any of atlanta's and yunus' series of fatal mistakes), 
...
the creative collaboration talents of female chinese millennials - and next 4 day retreat this weekend - where san diego's community builders and students this weekend ask whether leaders at the two catholic universities there are willing to empower youth

it will be very rough (all errors mine -  in case it has any useful clues among the 30 networks i find most collaborative for youth) -if there are clues i can send you more detailed bookmarks or introduce you to the key community coordinators; i am just a maths guy with too much data on human and social goodwill and badwill rsvp isabella@unacknowledgedgiant.com

apologies and thanks, chris macrae

Reviewing the human consequences for millennials of the tipping point now breached by 3 systems:
The top down structure of the UN designed around the world of mid twentieth century
The mobile web entrepreneurial revolution in bottom-up and collaboration solutions scaled by action learning connectivity
The way sustainability goal metrics are audited given that sustainability involves flow dynamics  that also need to be tracked by millennials as deep in community context and exponential in impact

Objective and Outcomes:
This Windsor Consultation is designed to review, analyze and assess the current status of successful practices in the fields of water management, technology, innovation and to propose viable recommendations for potential successful projects.  Unique to this “results-oriented” gathering is that it encourages the practical implementation of new models of partnerships, spearheads rethinking of priority actions and strengthens the effectiveness of existing institutional frameworks and implementation mechanisms. By definition, this will require different approaches that draw on new mindsets and resources encouraging actors to explore a variety of partnerships to enhance a “Society for All Ages, and the “New Urban Agenda.” 

Format:

 

The format of the Consultation includes plenary sessions and four breakout groups. The Consultation will raise and discuss certain specific issues in order to establish the essential building blocks for productive sharing of experiences and future actions. The Consultation will include:

1. Presentation of the topic and briefing from the United Nations partners suggested outcomes will be explored; 

2. Presentation of local successful projects and endeavors by participants from both developed and   developing  countries in the area of  water management, technology, entreprepreuralship and innovation  as well as eduction. Explore partnerships and cooperation opportunities;

4. Call for actions to support the new innovations and upscale successful projects. .

 

Venue:


The Consultation takes place at St. George’s House within Windsor Castle itself, 13-15 April 2015.

The origins of the venue date back to 1384 when it was established as a place where people of influence and responsibility could come together to explore and develop ideas and possible solutions to the problems of the day.

 

Logistics:

Prior to the Windsor Castle event, there will be several preliminary working and preparation sessions to fine tune the logistics. Informational concept notes  and questions for discussion are being developed Due to space limitations the gathering at Windsor is organized attendance of 38 participants.












Background of ICCC:

The International Council for Caring Communities (ICCC), established in 1993, responds to the challenges and opportunities of a rapidly aging global population. ICCC stimulates and identifies successful strategies and creative solutions by encouraging their adaptation and/or replication in both developing and developed countries.

Mainstreaming ageing issues, especially within the areas of the built environment and information and communication technologies (ICT), is the centerpiece of ICCC's global dialogue. ICCC is a non-profit organization and has United Nations Special Consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). It serves not only as a leader and catalyst but also as a bridge joining universities, government agencies, the private sector, NGOs as well as United Nations agencies to promote new ways of viewing an integrated Society for all Generations.
.
Since its inception, one of ICCC’s unique goals has been to highlight the contributions that private enterprises and individuals have made to the betterment of society. Through global dialogues, technical support and international student design competitions, ICCC promotes the mainstreaming of ageing issues through “out of the box” gatherings of non-traditional change agents and experts.

we want millennials and pro-youth cities to be sustainable and believe this means that unlike the green washing of the millennium goals to 2015
 youth innovations need to be embedded as fast as possible in a few sustainability development goals and then all goals- we need new educational curriculum to achieve
this and we partner new channels such as www.yazmi.com  which has satellite access to 5 billion people's learning needs

different cities link to greater or less degree following information flows

information on which people  inside each un or other  organisations eg WHO are up for collaboration needed for the goal to be achieved

where apps/coders competitions are being scaled out of the city and how to connect cities through hubs hackathons and their processes that can ensure competitions are not just one time events 
so students can become alumni of each others most collaborative and sustainable solutions,friendships and young professional exchanges -the above zero sum action learning economy directly traded between millennials is much bigger that zero-sum gdps calculation 20thc government macroeconmists rule over and spin currency wars around- my fathers life work at The Economist warned this system transformation would be the grand challenge of investing in the net generation and sustainability sans frontieres

spaces and channels for missing curriculum - eg a curriculum of each sustainability goal which integrates apps and other bottom-up solutions iteratively- studying the curriculum is not about certification but putting a millennials network in the middle of the most informed uses of the web as a smart medium and their focal sustainability competence and so better job creation capability

we also search economists whose  models peacefully stand up for the futures of poorest demographic segments or faiths whose servants end inequality by working deeply in the community
the cross-connection of mindset of pope francis and jim kim is a wonderful if temporary opportunity to build out from for millennials in either DC or rome

i hope that compass illustrates the hi-trust connections we are trying to build as we linkin millennials and pro-youth cities -with goal 11 being probably the most open way forward to do this that we have so far collected UN data on
