to update my understanding -after latest trips to beijing , canada, and columbia university - in case its relevant to you or anyone you recommend to elaborate in more details .. i will go anywhere to share network details if that can be useful
Argentina G20 july 2018 is the only scheduled world summit staged in the americas that china and friends of Guterres global 2.0 trust as offering before and after processes to incubate massive action networking solutions youth can celebrate. To be frank, from eastern hemisphere's peace and youth's wellbeing, xi jinping has to put far more focus on relations with eg India, S Korea and Japan both of whom have agreed to lead huge investment paradigms -japan sports for all with ban ki moon cleaning up olympics ethics, india as the origin of new development banking multilateral partnerships, korea as leader of 2000 place governors benchmarking thriving carbon zero microeconomies. China desperately seeks Americans leading their own collaborations so youth can be sustainability generation. The 19th party congress is quite likely to demand that Xi limits his time in americas friendships unless something totally different happens to all english speaking media.
Therefore my question would be how will all the greatest movements for sustainability that americas have originated connect with argentina whilst also ensuring that argentina is thanked as a beacon for americas contribution to sustainability generation
Latin america has a lot to offer -its cultures inspired all jim kims development world on last mile health and all girl empowerment solutions out of bangladesh (paulo freire was the text both grameen and brac based micro-vilage development solutions on) including jack ma's challenge to muhammad yunus in 2008 to see who could create the next 100 million jobs by being true to financing girl empowerment
Argentina is the home of pope francis whose declarations on climate, youth and mercy (what jack ma calls loveq) are second to none as values
Jack ma's big data small analysis has been recognised as a game changer for development by unctad and at least 30 national leaders including argentina's leadership which have formed a partnership with him- jack is now replicating 3000 people leadership training wherever place leaders ask - see www.gateway17.com
youth in trump's america and across its borders need to see that there are solutions; earlier this month mexico and brazil were part of china's 10 biggest developing nations powow -brics declaration 1 - they have been asked to design the most unique development projects their country needs funding as part of a nation mutual exchange of insanely great development projects
canada has always been the most radical leader in the west of how g20 can do sustainbility different networking that g7; its relationships with china on relevant digital indsutries is one that any latin american country that wants to celebrate digital social youth is invited to join in now - i believe this is highly relevant to the sort of event Roberto Perini keynoted at
i believe world bank is about to release the first ever world development report on education; china has several outside box ideas on education; sports for all is one jack ma is reorganising olympics around partnered by the female mayor of tokyo, that nation's greatest education entrepreneur and new hope movement leader; both the youth case presented at world bank from columbia and the meta movement of special olympics out of DC have shown when communities take back charge of sports participation for all , education for all skills changes too; the other revolution china is backing is 10 times lower costs for acquiring second languages; the half billion chinese under 30s have clarified its very hard for them to friend the world in sustainability and human artificial intelligence projects if they cant speak other youth languages; the youth in development summit of world bank 2016 had some fabulous cases of youth starting up peer to peer language networks that are 10 times more affordable and efficient for youth; some people dismiss belt road mapping as too big- actually its the opposite- at every border china ever connects it invests in youth language and culture exchanges

watch out for which state governors visit beijing
is there any state that couldnt gain from china as best trade partner, and which market sector is it that makes them decline?
learn for their long-term win-win trade agreements between eg usa local produce communites and chinese rejuvenation dreams
|as jack ma announced UN edu commission sept 2016 - half of all youth will be unemloyable unless we change education systems and all other systems sustainability generation need transformking as many tipping points eg climate and conflict boundaries are being reached||.edu revolution year 017-018 selected highlights..|
g20 july 2018- will values of frnacis and paule freire recharge this summit? jack ma prfactices training of 3000 at www.gateway17.com -recent performace 9/25/17 - toronto- toronto major hub for sherpa to jak ma's 2016 prep for G20 china. - education reports due - from world bank oct ; from unesco goal 4 nov ...the worlds education laureates return to wise oman after satelllite events of 1500 educators - wise@beijing , wise@madrid
after july the g20 baton is passed to tokyo- whicfh is alos epicentre in 2020 for javck ma's transforation of olympics for all!
canada total strategic partnership - fully underatdns chkina pivoit to a 700 middle class consumption economy- sees this a schna greatest bjob creating opportunitgy ever
argentina , jack ma has spent time there asking how to extend his ewtp to marketgs such as beef which china has massively opened up - tghe poes fraherland is the wprld stage for july 2018 - the greatest expo space that class of 2017-2018 can help incubate solution forxi jinping has been putting exyraordinary efforts into may latin american countreus but in terms of linking more than half the worlds p;eople into demanding new development banking (its 70 yeras since 1946 bretoon woods model) -brazil and mexico have bene presidents most personally briefed
most counties on either side of usa are radically chnaing thei main trading partbner to china for all sectorfs that small enterprises van have vibrfant imoact in
of course if trump coljuld be converted to green and sustaining yoiuth livelihoods , then the whuole contients youth coluld start celebrating each other
\how year 2016-2017 began
30 national leaders and counting invite families and youth to change the world of education and media - why change if we keep old education half of all youth will be underemployed- lets unite the greatest #learninggeneration - thanks to these leaders
