Can we make a list of action learning games that world citizens may need to plug and play with the British
Broadcasting Corporation’s world service charter?
1 We have the BBC's Action Networks. Over the years the BBC has connected
virtual action networks with real cafes. I gained experience of hosting one they co-sponsored with the RSA
and Starbucks on Peoples
for Pensions - if you believe that educating communities so that that there are banks that invest in each locality and
long term cultural need, then I'd love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org subject PFP.
Independently, Londoners originated collaboration café format – examples here
2 If you believe
that the world's largest broadcaster owned by the public should be raising debates on the people sustainability crises fearlessly
(even if the biggest vested interests in corporations and national governments as yet have no better answers that ordinary
people) then consider signing our pledge. A network
of 2000 people is needed to free the chains that the governors of the BBC. Our
future historian records show these shackles to true free speech were first commanded
by Harold Wilson, and subsequently politicians of both parties have compounded this loss of open curiosity on sustainability
of all peoples in the change world we are travelling through. To date the lowest point world service censorship has reached
was when the BBC was inquiring whether weapons of mass destruction existed the worst gag censorship order in British tv history
was issued by PM Blair. No wonder Her Majesty was later seen to take the unusual step to use her Christmas message to the
commonwealth to ask is humanity turning on itself?
3 If you are interested in scaling up to world congresses where every end of sustainability meets
- from the top with all the budgets to the peoples in most critical need- then you can help SustainabilityClub.com rank what meeting formats like the West's ClintonGlobalInitiative
o r the East's MicroCreditSummit work and how they have uniquely sustainable differences. How many innovative world congresses
can we populate the annual calendar with and how can we ensure that every hemisphere and every culture feels included in the
peoples world congresses
ER'S Questions on branches of Systemic Entrepreneurial Family Tree
1 Branch -Social Entrepreneurs:
Regarding Peace Entrepreneur Project Entry at Changemakers Competiitons (entries peace buildings health)
Can you tell me if I put
a project up does your virtual interface
enable me to keep on editing it during the open phase of the competition?
ask because I have never tried to submit a project, and the only one that interests me on peace involves a (open source) network
of network approach which is in its 23rd year of cross-cultural gestation - and where as an connector-editor I could
have to put something up and then ask the principals involved to re-edit theoir sub-mosaics
As a mathematician/mapmaker, I take the view that in a networking world, boundaries are the greatest points
of compound risk, a second sort of lost transparency just as destructive to future sustainability as tangible corruption;
therefore network of network empoerment of peacemaking contributions of practices is relevant to all who search truth
flows from all 360 degrees up. I am aware that this meta-view has some innovation barriers with the core belief system
of social entrepreneurs- for example youth in big cities (not village and not nation powers) are where peace's gatesways
will first be developed or squandered -as evidenced too by how inclusively interventions are designed at clintonglobalinitiatives,
microdreditsummits, Nobel appraisals etc
Recursive interface formats
are needed in sustainability's virtual spaces. Even Gandhi originally trained in social networeking out of a capital city
and internalised this in his own world citizen vision ; not to empower the city as the practice triangularisation
intermediary of micro and macro is a sustainability and entrepreneurial mistake of unfathomable proportions

I hope this gets
to your desk. My father, Norman Macrae, sends his regards. You may remember he covered the start up of Sun as a coming entrepreneurial success in The Economist
when he was doing Silicon Valley storytelling early 1980s.
He also completed his
40 years at The Economist with an Entrepreneurial Revolution 76-82-84 trilogy, still unequalled as a practical guide to the
future’s entrepreneurial waves. The third part published in 5 languages in 1984 was the original “Death of Distance”
future history, a genre now also known as world is flat. Our 1984 maps included the 7 most likely waves to sustain or end
us all, as 1984-2024 emerged to be the first worldwide networking generation. Clean energy was supposed to have been the simplest
wave to unite us!
I am enclosing pre-release copy of the 23 annual brief of DoD networkers on where humanity’s
exponentials of world change and sustainability have reached. Enjoy!
I want to mention that
there is a vital London junction on climate crisis map that needs interconnecting
with CA. , NY, Nashville...
Brief ABC map below; bit longer on backside of this letter.
ABC of Climate Entrepreneurs Revolution
A) Photosynthesis is the end game to clean energy, stable climate, abundant water, non polluted agricultures; but
ethanol farming is a vital in between because of national insecurities
double whammy blocks markets of photosynthesis sustainability wherever:
B) National governments
have been surrounded by big lobbies that all sponsor dumbing down of the people by censoring the media or spending billions
on ads that addict through images rather than engage fearless participation in community rising innovation
C) Global corporations
sponsor laws and economics of scarcity and the big get bigger blocking micro-up entrepreneurial economics and free markets.
Notably, the old system destroys open source flows- how interactive media can wave cross-cultural joy of productivity and
educational needs whose economic dynamic multiplies value in use, instead of getting consumed up

In surveys conducted

Which other socila networks value GandhI as The Greatest Leader the World has so far Enjoyed?
listing some of them, here's a family story. My grandfather on my mother's side was trained at the Bar of London about a decade
after Gandhi, as one of the medical and judiciary families networked into the British raj was by 1930 chief judge for the
region of India that Gandhi organised his peace marches in, by the 1940s was a primary constitutional adviser to Britain's
foreign office mediating what became India's Declaration of Independence. So yes I have a multicultural and
mathematcial bias in suggesting we benchmark how to value hi-trust leaders everywhere against Gandhi, but equally
love to hear your nominations and make a register of worldwide leaders inspired by the golden rule of relationship
reciprocity - which I remember as always do unto others what you would wish others did unto your children.

Gandhi 1931 speech (to chief guest Maria Montessori) continued:
We are conducting an experiment
amongst the poorest of the children in India . I do not know
how far the experiment will go. We have the problem of giving real vital education to these children of India
's hovels, and we have no material means. We have to fall back upon the voluntary assistance of teachers,
but when I look for teachers, they are very few, especially, teachers of the type wanted, in order to draw the best from the
children through understanding, through studying their individuality and then putting the child on its own resources, as it
were, on its own honor. And believe me from my experience of hundreds, I was going to say thousands, of children I know that
they have perhaps a finer sense of honor than you and I have.
The greatest lessons in life if we would but stoop and humble ourselves,
we would learn not from grown-up learned men, but from the so-called ignorant children. Jesus never uttered a loftier or a
grander truth than when he said that wisdom cometh out of the mouths of babes. I believe it; I have noticed it in my own experience
that, if we would approach babes in humility and in innocence, we would learn wisdom from them.
I must not take
up your time. I have simply given you what is, at the present moment, agitating me, namely, the delicate problem, considered
in human terms, of drawing out the best from these millions of children of whom I have told you. But I have learned this one
lesson - that what is impossible with man is child's play with God and, if we have faith in that Divinity which presides over
the destiny of the meanest of His creation, I have no doubt that all things are possible and in that final hope I live and
pass my time and endeavor to obey His will. Therefore, I repeat that even as you, out of your love for children, are endeavoring
to teach those children, through your numerous institutions, the best that can be brought out of them, even so I hope that
it will be possible not only for the children of the wealthy and the well-to-do, but for the children of paupers to receive
training of this nature. You have very truly remarked that if we are to reach real peace in this world and if we are to carry
on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with children and if they will grow up in their natural innocence, we won't
have the struggle, we won't have to pass fruitless idle resolutions, but we shall go from love to love and peace to peace,
until at last all the corners of the world are covered with that peace and love for which, consciously or unconsciously, the
whole world is hungering.

greeting her, said, “We are members of the same family”.
“I bring you the greetings of children,”
said Madame Montessori.
GANDHIJI: If you have children I have children too. Friends in India ask me to imitate you. I say
to them, no, I should not imitate you but should assimilate you and the fundamental truth underlying your method.
MADAME MONTESSORI: As I am asking my own
children to assimilate the heart of Gandhiji. I know that feeling for me over there in your part of the world is deeper than
you have the largest number of adherents in India
What solutions to worldwide crises do your most human networks attend to ?....
Story of The Change World 2007 Citizen Nets followed by examples
belong to a world citizen network (WCN) that needs more global participation and hi-trust recognition? WCNs are self-nominating
but judged by worldwide brand chartering criteria. Typically for
our future scriptwriters to support a WCBN:
The citizen network at every level of connectivity has agreed an
overall change goal. Network will regard itself as failing to be a world service unless
cooperatively started systematic global economic & local entrepreneurial reversal
of the crisis worldwide by 2015
The WCBN has at least one prototype
project/franchise solution that its citizens act as guidemakers by welcoming all people to. This means that crisis
solutions are designed primarily as an open source entrepreneurial system revolution -one anyone
sincerely interested in the change world crisis can help with developing
WCBN is committed to the idea of supporting hi-trust world change travel guides in every format
and around any crisis that human beings vote for needed international cooperation. Such support is propagated by ensuring
that the coordinators of any change world solutions proposed by the WCN complete a survey that can be openly published anywhere
on what help that project needs to repliacte its solutions appropraietly worldwide and how everyone can participate in that
solution. Moreover, the coordinator is delighted to learn with any other solution coordinators on the same change world map,
wherever these are openly verified to be part of the overall solution human sustainability needs.
Mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org if your WCBN has a story that needs to be integrated openly into the permanent stories bank of chnage
world travel guides. Below are a few emerging stopries we are currently helping co-edit. Questions are also most welcome.
From the change world travel guide on Climate Crisis (in print) -source Londoners to
World and solaroof.com 1 Photosynthsesis architecture networks are the only systematic climate
sustainability solution yet known to us -email@example.com
examples: design a building at the same price as any other building but using
10% of 20th century power costs for heating/colling building; design a building that collects all its energy and water needs;
all designs are local climate edited but the good news is that usually photosynthesis architectures are most efficient in
extreme climate places where historically the climate has compounded poverty; we can also use deserts to farm algae
to make any nation with a desert self-sufficient on all the gas it needs for autos and with a petrol that cleans the atmosphere
of carbon as it is consumed.
The reason photosynthesis architectures have not been adopted are similar to what
has the UK got to the climate crisis downward exponential where it is necessary to invest 1% of GDP to save 20%.
In particular, photosynthesis solutions work from grassroots networks up and do not provide any immediate synergies for those
corporations or other Orwellian influences who want to globaly command the world from the top down. More detailed contextual
reasons camn also be explored at 1 2
23 years of searching began with this scenario
for debating at global village meetings published in our 1984 handbook on death of distance crises available
in 5 languages:
Sunlight is the fuel which sustains life on earth. The process by which plants extract energy from sunlight,
using that energy to build up complex compounds from simper ones and thereby storing the energy which animals, including humans,
use to grow and move and see and think is the life-process itself. We (human beings) have always exploited that life-process,
but in the past we have only been able to do so by using living plants as our agents. We learned to cultivate them, develop
them by selective breeding, and since the 1980s to meddle with their genes, but we have not yet learned to substitute something
of our own making for the living plant. We have not found or made a more efficient substitute for chlorophyll itself outside
the naturally-occurring factory which is the living cell.
Until we design our own systems which can deploy the
energy of sunlight as efficiently as humble algae does, we humans have no real biotechnology of our own. We have many kinds
of solar cells which can extract energy from the sunlight and store is as electricity or heat, but such devices are very crude
indeed beside the technical sophistication and versatility of living plants.
We are making a determined effort
to capture and use a greater fraction of the solar energy which falls upon the face of the earth every day. We are trying
to make plants flourish in paces where at present they can only eke out the most precarious of existence. The ideal situation,
however, would be one in which we did not need to work so hard to adapt existing plants to more hostile conditions. If we
had our own artificial systems of photosynthesis we might exploit the desert sun ourselves, without using other organisms
as intermediaries. Our ultimate ambition must be to make artificial photosynthetic systems more efficient than those which
have evolved alongside side us throughout the history of life on earth. Then and only then will we be able to claim that we
are technologically self-sufficient. In 2024, this looks as if it might be one of our children's tasks

Speech At Montessori Training School: Mohandas K. Gandhi ,October 28, 1931 Note: Dr. Maria Montessori
met Mahatma Gandhi in the beginning of October, 1931 in London. And on October 28, 1931 Gandhi spoke at the Montessori College
London where Dr. Montessori was also in attendance. The following is the text of Gandhi’s Speech, which was published
in the weekly newspaper, Young India, on November 19, 1931. For further information and/or discussions on this
topic, please contact Shall Sinha at firstname.lastname@example.org )
Madame, you have overwhelmed me with your words. It is perfectly true, I must
admit it in all humility, that however indifferently it may be, I endeavor to represent love in every fiber of my being. I
am impatient to realize the presence of my Maker, Who to me embodies Truth, and in the early part of my career I discovered
that if I was to realize Truth I must obey, even at the cost of my life, the law of love. And having been blessed with children,
I discovered that the law of Love could be best understood and learned through little children.
Were it not for us, their
ignorant poor parents, our children would be perfectly innocent. I believe implicitly that the child is not born mischievous
in the bad sense of the term. If parents would behave themselves whilst the child is growing, before it is born and after,
it is a well-known fact that the child would instinctively obey the law of Truth and the law of Love.
And when I understood
this lesson in the early part of my life, I began a gradual but distinct change in life. I do not propose to describe to you
the several phases through which this stormy life of mine has passed, but I can only, in truth and in perfect humility, bear
witness to the fact that to the extent that I have represented Love in my life, in thought, word and deed I have realized
the “peace that passeth understanding”. I have baffled many of my friends when they have noticed in me peace that
they have envied, and they have asked me for the cause of that priceless possession. I have not been able to explain the cause
by saying that, if my friends found that peace in me, it was due to my attempt to obey this, the greatest law of our being.
in 1915 when I reached India , that I first became acquainted
with your activities. It was in a place called Amreli that I found that there was a little school being conducted after the
Montessori system. Your name had preceded that first acquaintance. I found no difficulty in finding out at once that this
school was not carrying out the spirit of your teaching; the letter was there, but whilst there was an honest - more or less
honest - effort being made, I saw too that there was a great deal of tinsel about it. I came in touch, then, with more such
schools, and the more I came in touch, the more I began to understand that the foundation was good and splendid, if the children
could be taught through the laws of nature - nature, consistent with human dignity, not nature that governs the beast. I felt
instinctively from the way in which the children were being taught that, whilst they were being indifferently taught, the
original teaching was conceived in obedience to this fundamental law. Since then, I have had the pleasure of coming across
several of your pupils, one of whom had even made a pilgrimage to Italy and
had received your personal blessings. I was looking forward to meeting the children here and you all and it was a great pleasure
to me to see these children.
I had taken care to learn something about these little children. I had a foretaste of what I saw
here, in Birmingham , where there is a school between which and this there is
a difference. But I also saw that there also human nature was struggling to express itself. I see the same thing here and
it was a matter of inexpressible joy to me that from their childhood the children were brought to understand the virtue of
silence, and how, in response to the whisper from their teacher, the children came forward one after another in that pin-drop
silence. It gave great joy to see all those beautiful rhythmic movements and, as I was watching those movements of the children,
my whole heart went out to the millions of the children of the semi-starved villages of India, and I asked myself as my heart
went out to those children, “Is it possible for me to give them those lessons and the training that are being given
under your system, to those children”?
