Dear Lord Davidson

My father Norman Macrae at The Economist predicted 40 years ago that 2018-2023 would be extremely innovative if :
we helped youth navigated 1000 to 2000 times moore tech 
we connected English and Chinese speaking youth in every educational and coding way possible

whilst I live in Washington DC I travel to Beijing every few weeks during the student year to try and help multiply youth connections- in particular i believe all youth should understand connections with Tsinghua, aiib and 21st C learning.
In march 2019 the biggest report yet in digital cooperation is being released by UN with inputs from 20 nations perspectives including China's Jack Ma and US's Melinda Gates. We believe it is critical that teachers and students maximise access and debate of this report

If there might be any synergy between your work to connect futures, my co-workers and i would love to try and help in any way

yours sincerely
Chris Macrae
PS Dad's last project helped adam smith scholars develop a new journal- it aims to connect extreme tech and community solutions between the 2 most populated regions s asia and china and has helped us understand inter alia how jack ma and brac in dhaka have reached this year's partnership at we believe there is a lot for Scots who want to celebrate sustainability and deepest women empowerment tech to connect and do now...

#br4 budapest  maths people educated there, hungarian school of economists contributed so much to world of free community entrepreneurship - it breaks my heart that the extreme anti-youth regime dictated out of the european union is direct cause of a viral populism- i was so lucky to see budapest on one of its last beautiful days hosted by george soros celebrating the open society wonders of fazle abed and paul farmer- cheered on by the then multi-culture multi-linguistic central euroepan university- along with hungary i have been deeply privileged to chat to youth in Ukraine and Poland at times  when hope was still rising- does every european century have to start with arrogant elder big brother european bureaucrats destroying youths hopes , lives and livelihoods
