norman macrae fall 2015 challenge elearning year 44

online library of norman macrae-- includes net gen futures of sustainability (and pro-youth entrepreneurial revolution) since 1972
anyone got ideas on my 4th annual debate with sir fazle abed ?
back in 2012 sir fazle abed of -  the most knowledgeable and collaborative end poverty leader alive today -as far i can search - started debating how to make sure his knowhow is sustained after his death - 
in Keynes and my father's naive economics world if we are spending 4000 times 2030 versus 1946 more on global village come technology/infrastructures then freeing millennials to share/action-net sir fazle's knowhow should be easy wherever sustainability critical to a community

now here's the most crazy pieces of this puzzle as I perceive them (of course given this could be so simple maybe i am the problem)

first because i spent 20 years of my life editing global brand tv ads to be on message -- where videos of sir fazle's methods are used i want them edited to 1 scale maxime worldwide recall of his message 2 virally prompt millennials to joyfully do things that honor his trust  3 change transparency and  openness of education or other systems if needs be

second sir fazle only takes on 2 new big projects a year because frankly hes quite exhausted  (and still has to be involved in many of bracs live projects ) so the question is what elearning platform partner would want to maximally help sir fazle?

there are already tens of hour of content rich sir fazle speeches on video that could be edited into eg a coursera on-demand weekly format- so it would seem a key question boils down to would coursera want to feature the most demanded content in sustainable millennials world and who would they (the abed family) be happy to do that editing and one or tow days of new content filming to bridge the whole

1 possibility is sir fazle and his son but you can imagine they are likely to say - really can nobody help us?

2 another possibility is additional support from a team at brac university - 

3 another possibility could be eg the sorts of people at berkeley eg blum global poverty curriculum or east asia studies institute who help webinar sir fazle when he's passing through the region

or is there a 4th possibility -if anyone has ideas this is actually the most urgently important challenge i am currently stuck on - so i would go anywhere to find out exactly what to offer to sir fazle and his son next

series of briefings with sir fazle abed

2012 sponsored by japan embassy in dhaka= 2 norman macrae remembrance dialogues -chief guest sir fazle abed
2013/2014 private one hour debriefings on latest on elearning with sir fazle and his communications director at brac headquarters in dhaka

sir fazle was WISE (qatar) inaugural education laureate and george soros 20th open society laureate 2013 (central european university budapest)

before becoming a leader in ending village poverty he graduated from university of glasgow in architecture of shipping and went on to be a chartered accountant at shell corporation until dedicating his life to end poverty in bangladesh first with a disaster relief project in 1970 and from 1972 by founding brac

unlike yunus he doesnt like himself as magical with info technology but when he sees the right partners he joyfully supports them - it is brac which now has the most scaled cashless bank in end poverty world - the tech wizardry is entrusted to same MIT leaders who originally proposed grameen phone to yunus in 1996 and who created mpesa circa 2008 in kenya
