will eu protect humanity for 3 months nov-feb

ever since my father, the economist's norman macrae,  reported on birth of european union messina 1955 disgusting top-down politicians different ,from the practical eu founders, have failed totally to protect the world leaving everything to usa

if biden is elected the 3 months from late november will be the most dangerous the world has ever faced from hi-tech  bad dictators wherever you think they lurk behind national platforms with or without nuclear or virus weapons

]will the rotten 21st c european union -failed sub prime, failed on policies in south east europe, failed on tech apprenticeships,  faile on ukraine and east europe, failed on infrastructure across eurasia even though it was euro empires that trapped asians in poverty? -  for one quarter puts its arguments with britain and others aside and protect humanity- if it fails every eu leader should face the french guillotine

and what if trump is re-elected - god knows but that will also be in part due to pathetic failure of europe to oppose trump on every lie, every issues of , every failure to share knowhow on virus ...

If we want to improve human development, publications on development must be in the mother tongues. Not an executive summary but the full text. Language is being a barrier to knowledge for development
From Assumptha parthesarathy to Everyone:  10:21 AM
In India this out of school situation magnifies the learning inequalities among the Dalits particularly dalit women. Learining is lost challenging the progress made so far in this communities.How could we engage in reducing the learning gaps among the marginalised communities other than e resources as they are not access to smart phone or devices.
From Dr. Divya Singhal, India to Everyone:  10:23 AM

From purnima to Everyone:  10:26 AM
Totally agree with Ms. Madeleine Zuniga! In India situation is same! Thanks for pointing out about female teachers issues. Even connectivity not only in rural area but in urban area is huge problem
From Javier Saenz Core to Everyone:  10:27 AM

Key information about human development is not reaching citizens, especially those living in vulnerable conditions. Organizations working for human development must make an effort to translate key texts, in full format.
From Sanjeeta Dhaka to Everyone:  10:29 AM
Thanks Mr. MarkMeaney for sharing this important information with us. Sure we will apply for it. 
From Assumptha parthesarathy to Everyone:  10:29 AM
children are not vote banks ,so issues related to children specially are not covered adequately in policy intervention and budget allocation.Also marginalised organisation are very much engaged in immediate issues such as atrocities and violence that are essential and increasing ,the issue of education is less discusses as the priorities not so much for learning
From prince Goodluck Obi to Everyone:  10:29 AM
Absolutely right on my own rating Ms Madelene Zuniga 
From Mark Meaney to Everyone:  10:29 AM
Thank you so much for your kind consideration, Sanjeeta!
From Javier Saenz Core to Everyone:  10:30 AM

Many relevant texts, with strong scientific evidence on human development, are expensive and, in another language, are inaccessible to communities.

From Joan Kerr to Everyone:  10:30 AM

From Dr. Divya Singhal, India to Everyone:  10:31 AM
Yes.. Prof. Zuniga... climate change, inclusive growth should be part of our education... we need to re-work on our curriculum...
