firstname.lastname@example.org -over 40 years since our first futures book on the net, my father last public birthday party was celebrated with Dr Yunus who Norman saw as the happiest newcaser but not necessarily the alumni epicentre of all 17 goals -here's first tour of where and why boston excluding harvard is the only city in the usa as yet (tell us if this changes) where students get a fair chance to stay out of debt and collaborating in sustainability goal solutions
these words of dr yunus best hit the spot of future I'd like my daughter to see- how about you?
We Create What We Want.
We wanted to go to the moon, so we went there.
We achieve what we want to achieve.
We accept that poverty is part of human destiny. It’s not!
We believe we can create a poverty-free world.
We need to invent ways to change our perspective.
We can reconfigure our world if we can reconfigure our mindset. .
Social business will be a new kind of business, making a difference in the world.
Human beings are a wonderful creation embodied with limitless human qualities and capabilities.
Entrepreneurs are not one-dimensional human beings, dedicated to maximizing profit.
They are multi-dimensional: political, emotional, social, spiritual, environmental.
The desire to do great things for the world can be a powerful driving force
Young people dream about creating a perfect world of their own.
Social business will give them a challenge to make a difference by using their creative talent.
Let us join hands to unleash our energy and creativity.
Collectively, we can create a poverty-free world.”
Legatum change the world conference has been announced for 10 May
MIT remains the most revolutionary space youth can study in usa- it celebrates open education; it houses the father of the web tim berners lee; a square mile walk from kendall metro is the most futuristic imagination tour I know of in the west (though I would love to join in celebrating any square mile tour you recommend for changing the world)
and through Legatum it hosts annual conferences by the digital wizards who first brought mobile telecoms to the world poorest village mothers and their communities with the greatest sustainability crises; I guess but I dont know that the most futuristic square mile tour in the middle east is located in Dubai (the twin capital of Legatum with Boston)

: Johnny grabbed other people's ideas, then by his clarity leapt five blocks ahead of them. and helped put them into practical effect. We think this is the social action that smart people exist to mediate - especially when you joyfully adopt Johnny's belief that computers will allow research teams to tackle one hundred times as many projects 100 times more quickly.
