My dad's love of guiding people to and from this entrepreneurial capital of microeconomics began in 1944 -when he studied economics in Dhaka from an Indian correspondence course whilst waiting as a teenager to navigate RAF planes in WW2. I travelled to Dhaka at the start of 008 , formed Yunus1000 bookclub, and dad hosted a 30 person luncheon in St James London (Feb) to celebrate Dr Yunus. If a 24 person tour isn't your cup of tea, how can wholeplanet guides help you collaboration cafe or city with DR Yunus and the brilliantly open grassroots organisational networks (Bill Clinton Video Testimony) of Bangladesh

Dad's writings for 40 years in The Economist were on microeconomics and hi-trust entrepreneurs. His 1984 book on would globalisation be sustainable - concluded we'd need a Nobel Laureate inspiring searches of 30000 community rising projects before 2010.

A recent tour
Dr Yunus leadership team has shared their collaboration wishlist with 24 and other peers from start of 2007 – discuss with yunus forum chapter leader mostofa zaman or see eg survey passed round and printed in guide (bottom download at http://www.valuetrue.com/home/gallery.cfm?startrow=4 ) ..2008 has become year 1 of future capitalism, and we link the flows interacting 1000 readers of “Creating a world without poverty: social business, future of capitalism)
 
What I think we have action learnt (please help me extend this partial list, eg imagine it as a wiki):

ABC MAPS FOR CHANGING WORLD:
young and educational experiences :
Actions (Social) first practices of team work in community first development of your entrepreneurial flow- ie ability to turn your skill in serving others into income generating activity
 
Business (Social) If you do start up a business, what relationship with those who provide capital do you want: To be always in debt to them or to quickly be sustainable without their pursestrings To have an exit plan before you start to be there to compound a most purposeful or innovative organisation your community or world has even been connected to

C How do we ensure every global market has benchmarks of organisational maps that are sustaining humanity, improving the human lot starting with those most desperately in need which only that sector has most practical impact on

FROM BANKER TO THE POOR TO INTERNETWORKER FOR THE POOR
 Over 30 years ago Dr Yunus founded the best places on earth be poor round a grassroots service organisational franchise that connected three goals in one:
 *Intervene in the conflicts that were destroying the community
*Empower those who had no opportunity to be productive with microloans which both began their own businesses and invested in the community
*Help move the next generation so far ahead of poverty line in education and other communal investments that the community would be resilient to the next disaster – eg most Bangladeshi suffer life threatening floods at least once a decade which also risks decimates their agricultural businesses and clean water systems

The grassroots organisational franchises that Bangladesh has developed social businesses around over the last 30 years are now world leaders: Whose franchises people open source/replicate to combat poverty’s system failure around the world – eg the biannual microcredit summit set and achieved a 8 year goal to give 100 million people access to ending poverty with microcredit

President Clinton says that the reason what Bangladesh economy is now compounding 7 per cent growth a year is due to these community-up organisations not any traditional help from top-down governments or corporations. Bill Gates says that the one thing Harvard never taught him was about the half of the world in poverty. Yunus inspired social business schools and system maps are ones he needs in his new job description. In effect, both Yunus and gates are converging on the same new career: internet for and with the poor- in yunus’ case from banker for the poor, in Gates’ case from software editor for the rich.

6 MICROWORLDS needed to Sustain half of humanity.
These are the flows between microcredit & microhealth & microeducation & microagriculture & microgovernment & microbranding of consumer goods (including media and distribution channels)

HOW TO COLLABORATE WITH YUNUS OPEN SOURCE NETWORKS & ALUMNI
Map Strengths*Weaknesses*Opportunities*Threats: Citizens observations worldwide are needed to help SWOT the 6 microworlds. In microcredit’s case the danger is now that its a proven success every big bank will offer microcredit for a few years and then turn it back into macrodebt. In the other 5 microworlds, the knowledge from the 100 most vital industry sectors is needs networking but mapped round flows of how to sustain people and end poverty

Help experientially educate at every level. Examples:

Chapter 11 of yunus book asks for help to pilot a worldwide survey and register of youth teamwork actions

Yunus is currently searching for help in designing an SMBA http://smbaworld.com to start in Paris Fall 2008- what would a 2 month course look like for those who want to unlearn profit extraction MBA and know how to design and govern and empower work in social businesses that are 100% investing in goodwill multiplication mapped around unique and vitally needed service purpose. For sustainability to have an even chance, every city needs to peer to peer train up as many SMBA as MBA

Stories of the difference between lose-lose-lose and win-win-win globalisation need tracking. This work began 24 years eg at but is also relevant ot questioning what were the 24 most relevant collaborations of berners lee’s www- and how mature are we in practising each of these

If you are networked into alumni or with peers into a network with a long-run (compound) human goal, why not tell us so we can debate where and how your contributions are urgently needed by Yunus do now teams. We have connections with 4 people interning in Dhaka this summer. Yunus leadership team has lots going on to question: Preparing microcredit summit bali end july Preparing content and formats for experiencing SMBA starting paris early september Partnering with west coast internet companies now that they realise that just like banking for the poor did not exist 30 years ago, internet for and with the poor’s 6 microworld is only just beginning this year.
24 PEOPLE

ALAN 18 years ago I was working at coopers and lybrand and Alan was editing a weekly marketing news magazine when it dawned on us that our profession “marketing” was mo longer mainly being used to innovate human progress, and accountants were ever more requiring different activities of marketing to separate their ROI while marketing and innovation had back in 1956 been defined by peter drucker as the 2 main interdisciplinary and purpose compounding flows of organisational systems. We have written at least 10 books or edited special issues of academic journals on this crisis of marketing and valuation but until we discovered Dr Yunus’ maps to a more humanly sustainable world, its been a losing battle. 17 years later I met Peter who was beginning to suffer the same practice nightmares – unknown to me he was in chartered accountant side of C&L while I was in its global mancon.

MODJTABA, I met 5 years ago when invited by a professor of medicine out of australia to join hundreds of people in debates of globnal reconciliation. The professor, Paul Komesaroff, had started picking up the phone the day aftre 9/11 and networked together other medics, 3 nobel peace prize winners, citizens able to report conflicts from 50 crisis localities; also global NGOs who were admitting what they didnt know how to flow. For me this became a study of Gandhi. It turned out my maternal grandad had been mentored for 25 years by Gandhi- they were both barristers and this 25 years of mentoring began with grandad imprisoning Gandhi and ended with him helping write up the legalese of India ’s independence. In particular, Gandhi’s diaries including letters t Einstein make it clear that his transformation of rotting British superpower was a three-in-one intervention: *Media*Education*Professions. We note the MEP 3-in-one system crises in the world’s sustainability challenges today- and why collaboration speaking Dr Yunus is the only person I have yet found with sufficiently true mathematical maps of trust-flow (aka goodwill multiplication) to ensure human sustainability rising locally to globally. Modjtaba is Iranian born, Paris & medically educated, has tutored students on cross-cultural understanding during 25 years work in China and Japan; he’s now relocated to aga khan uni in london believing London to be the www epicentre if east-west divides are to be healed. I will now try and make other intros shorter, not cos other people are any else interesting but I dont want to make 22 more intros that you’d be better writing yourselves, or to take up more of your space or time than I already have.

2 years ago SOFIA , ROBERT de Sousa and TAV and I began surveys on whose the most trusted collaboration entrepreneur in the world. I was shocked at my own ignorance as it turned out that one person’s flow rated far and away more practically than anyone else, and I didnt have even one personal link to Dr Yunus. So we started micropublishing World Citizen Guides on how we’d all like to map networking connections, and a few months later when Dr Yunus won the Nobel prize we heard of the emerging Yunus citizen forums, and luckily one of the 2 most actively represented ones in the world was that started up my MOSTOFA Zaman in London. Mostofa is the deepest connector between bangladesh and a NW capital city any citizens are likely to find. Sofia hosts real world networking groups, cares deeply about youth and was best placed to suggest to Mostofa and I which 300 groups of 3-people should join in a Yunus 1000 event cataloguing social actions and deep change’s beginnings; and Tav mixes in infotech virtual communities, and Robert is a Gandhian hyper-networker drawing also on his 3 main lifelong affinities to Uganda, Goan region of India and London.

LESLEY & PATRICK. My career has taken me East but not South. Through Sofia I met Lesley the most deep mapper of communities in Africa I expect to ever bump into through European circles of Diaspora Africans. Both Sofia and Lesley know the people around Taddy Blecher who founded the Free University CIDA in S.Africa- currently my vote for the 2nd best thing for the world after microcredit. Patrick and I shared a shocking learning in 2005. We were involved with network is and hosting open space meetings that were supposed to link all those concerned with Make Poverty History and the African Commission. Instead we discovered that top down global NGO’s all saw this as an opportunity to fundraise separately- in other world too much of top-down NGO is part of the problem.
 
ANNE & MARK I met cos I am an amateur fanatic about photosynthesis and abundant clean solar energy. Anne knows (ie is chief networker for) the most absent minded inventor in this area. The trouble is his inventions really need a whole village to demonstrate out of. MARK is the most committed videographer I have met of green storytelling and its flows with every other story for humanity. He’s helping video Yunus storytelling from New York , London and Dhaka . Our dream includes a dvd with the 20 most different 2 minute Yunus stories you can engage youth with. Once that’s in the can, who are the other 20 deepest or most diversely urgent storytellers- of how to practice and celebrate humanity’s sustainability - youth needs to be aware of first.

GUILHEM & MITCHELL I met G&M cos of sofia , anne or tav. Guilhem is French but believes London ’s infotech networks are better placed to serve kenya and africa than Parisian ones, though at the rate paris is becoming number 1 European supporter of Dr Yunus maps of sustainability investment may change that. Mitchell is london ’s deepest citizen entrepreneur- helping rebuild Brixton from its riots due to giving local youth no opportunities for anything else. He leads a project piloting hub which many others including sofia and patrick and anne have networked flows through Virtually (years ago) I met another frenchman
 
ROBERT DE Q while he was amateurly experimenting with microcredit in the Philippines . His daytime job is PR- a connection that keeps me sane when I want to sanity check whether the big ad agency world is still as bad for communities health and wealth as it was when I worked for the world’s largest ad agency for 3 years at the turn of the millennium – that heady dotcom time when anything could have been co-created if true sustainability accounting had existed. PAMELA is a retired teacher who spends a lot of her time in African villages helping teachers and children visualise what the computing world will bring. Even if a village isnt online yet, it is vital youth imagine what networks can do so that when they do get first access they make best use – as did bangladesh’s mobile ladies – and not worst use (as I fear mist western yuppies do). She has personally transported copies of yunus book to networking friends in Nigeria and Kenya .
 
DARLINE & PETER & SPENCER. Darline is completing a phd at the LSE on the ethics of microcredit, and first flowed with modtaba, mark, sofia and I on our trip to observe Dr Yunus’ initial 1000 people book launches in New York and Philidelphia. I missed the first few days of USA booktour while we sampled 450 world entrepreneurs in London with Dr Yunus book. About 12 months ago I first met Peter, a Brit in New York who seeks to reform CIA (Community Impact Accounting). Peter hosted our New York trip’s diary and exchanged lessons on how collaboration cafe’s http://collaborationcafe.blogspot.com extensions across the Atlantic was going. As well as year round events, as and when needed, 2007 saw out first Twin City Fall Festival of collaboration cafes. Spencer helped peter with the New York inauguration of this bringing his africa conflict reconciliation networkers topics to the table. Peter’s top 2 application areas for CIA are ending malaria and supporting transparency collaborations around African villages.

RACHEL, ALEXIS, MARRIAH Planting Collaboration Cafe in New York in 207 was good timing for meeting the deepest networkers for youth and out of subpirme and educational crises. Rachel knows the founder of ASA, and Alexis and she are interning in Dhaka this summer. I have never met two young people with deeper human networking peers that R&A. Marriah is an adjunct professor of New York and Boston city Universities who also uses cable tv and youtubes to embolden youth social action and student union projects. Together with Peter and Spencer, collaborations and cafes are a lively out of new york and any NW city on http://wholeplanet.tv and http://microglobal.tv I met brad of http://collaboration.co.uk whilst sampling 450 Yunus books to world entrepreneurs. His organisation works on metrics and flow practices primarily in London and Paris, so can fit ideally of London and Paris are going to get their acts together as European hubs to microcredit world and the other 5 microworlds now that Dr Yunus and Bill Gates http://futurecapitalism.tv are both making career changes to being internetworkers for and with the poor. SAMANTHA, RAIMO, JUDE – 3 of the people I would most like to meet. Sam coordinates agents of awareness networks out of Barcelona and London- this connects with the viddeography work of Mark, Alexis and Marriah and a lot more. Jude has blogged out of the Clinton Global Initiative and like many of us this side of the atlantic is likely questioning how can we empower youth to reshape what future presidents of USA do –see ClintonUni.com or ObamaUni.com or MandelaUni.com or yuNusUni.com Raimo is in Finland, the region of europe most advance at lifelong learning, online collaboration and much that needs to flow both communally deep and cross-culturally inspiringly
