michael thanks for reaching out to my friends and I

i noticed one of your videos mentioned trying to create 1 million jobs in somalia- that alone stimulates me to buy a copy of your book

actually you may have gathered my media friends and I collaborate with young people in many countries around a simple survey 
who do you search as the top 10 job creators connected with sustainability goals livelihoods?
i am sure our young people would love to hear your view -collaboration surveys never have a single perfect answer instead we keep on action learning 

people like jack ma and sir fazle abed head our current rankings -and for that reason we invest in youth intelligence/ hubs/leaders qyests in china and bangladesh - perhaps the 2 most opposite success stories of  end poverty 2000-15 but where we find jobs leaders want to learn from each other especially where they share common need for wizard coders

i would love to share diaries in case there is a chance either for us to meet or you to meet some youth
basically i am dc-based - will always travel to new york or boston - and probably any us city if someone like you is flying through

i get to china or bangladesh or both about once every 6 weeks

happy to travel to europe to my home space but need some help in understanding what collaboration focus can be achieved- for 3 years i helped volunteer edit the european union knowkledgeboard on csr , intangibles valuation and ngo issues but was then thrown out for demanding youth ask questions at various parts of the EU that seemed to me around 2004 to be part of the problem not the solution

i feel the next 10 years are when sustainability will be won or lost by the 3 generations including under 30s alive today- so if there are urgent ways to help youth collaborate and change education in this regard i try my hardest as do all my most linkedin friends

probably the biggest event in a long while from my view is un education summit on september 18- please tell me if vou or any associates are there  

since chinese  yuxuan and amy,  bangladeshi mostofa and canadian-african-new yorker stephanie are the 4 youth who connect the most around the job creating sustainable world we hope to see i have copied them in case they have any more practical queries than I have

Dear Chris Macrae
For the European summer months I thought you may like to look at some videos on a number of topics that kept me in front of the camera the past 12 months - do check out https://www.csrfi.com/publications 
Happily, my Sustainability/CSR Online course goes from strength to strength and my CSR/Sustainability Text Book is in high demand:
CSR and Sustainability `
 
On a flight back to North America from Ghana (August 2016) and had a chance to take a quick look at your book. Impressive.  Seems well organized.  Good content and rationale support.  Covers a range of areas. What I’ve read is a practical and pragmatic blend of theory, practice and research. I look at a lot of CSR books.  Few of them are ones that I would really recommend.  Yours is different.  Congratulations. Wayne Dunn, President & Founder, CSR Training Institute Professor of Practice in Corporate Social Responsibility, McGill University / ISID

Enjoy!

Against the general picture of massive destruction of youth's jobs and loss of hope in goodwill economies around the world including recent folies like british exit from europe and the bipolar choice of next us presidents, and ever crazier problems to europe's south and east whose risks brissels have been totally blind to ober last 30 years ... 

youth i am connected with in china, rome, dubai, and bangladesh have made some progress ready to combat economistdiary.com of global youth tipping points - and I have made my first two visits to china
we also are blessed by friends in new york as an epicentre of debating whether any of the UN goals can be taken back by youth to work on (and a parallel cluster emrging around city of london) - linked to the approxuiamtely 3 billion jobs of the net generatuion my father first mapped in The Economist from 1972 -
 approximately 1 bilion renew planet,
 1 billion renew every community and sustain bordeless peace and wellbeing through open elarning and microframchising of community empower social services, 
1 billion jobs where coders co-ctreate way above zero-sum infratrsuctiures by valuing how  mobile apps/networks of knowhow can multiply value in use unlike consuming up things
ever crazier problems to europe's sout
in beijing last week we met professor lowrey - a superstar of explaining how Jack Ma and ali baba is regenerating small business everywhere in china and especially in villages -its platform offers a ;post-indsutrial economy to plug and play everywhere thet Small Enterprises have previously been scarificed by politicians of big gets bigger and short-term greed takes over from any trustworthy forms of inetrgenerational investment; a week earlier we were being briefed in bangaldesh by Sir Fazle Abed on what he needs to know about ali baba to take the world's largest end poverty NGO BRAC to the next stage (over the last 4 years BRAC itself entered as a world elader of the digital economy by buildig the develoing world's largest cashless bank www.bkash.com with support of MIT and other technolgy wizards; on september 18 at start of un week the education commission on the future of education will leapfrog beyond other UN summits opening ist year 2016-2017

PIERO QUESTION 1
so my forst question is do you knoiw anyone at Rome's annual Villa series where she conytrobuted in 2014 -whats particularlu ingteresting is as well as directly running youth programs to understand Jack Ma -see her coordination of aliresearch.com she is mentored by columbia university nobel economics winner ;professor phelps who seems toi have branded the term "mass flourishing" to connect with the system designs you and me tried to search across euroepan union and knowledge management networks in early 2000s but were largely told off by brussels and luxembourg wherever we connected 

XXVI Villa Mondragone International Economic Seminar Tor Vergata Economics Foundation - FUET University of Rome Tor Vergata 1-3 July 2014 “Anaemic Europe : How to Achieve Dynamism and Mass Flourishing"

PIERO QUESTION 2
My treciolection is those days os taht you did have som china connectiosn poarticula on sustainability assets such as water.
Wityh maurice in Rome and Yuxuan and Amy in China connecting {Professor Lowrey now would be a great time to reconnect any economists of friendsd who argue that the net generation jobs are absolutely critical to where the human race will be led over the last 15v yeras that tregaining sustainabiloity is possible

any other questions we could be asking ecah other and linking in the world's most energetic youth around? (eg QuiarterBilionGorks movement founded in Changsha last week to poomote livelihoods of the quarter os billion chiense girls under 30 - the most critical segment of the next decade according to father's curriculum of how to prevent losing himanity to Big Brother's systemic endgame

all the best chris macrae washington dc 240 316 8157
i would happily come over to rome or other places in italy if we can linkin those who want to dismantle top-down brussels while there is anything peaceful left for youth to work on
