While americans raced to the moon in 1960s, many peoples still without electricity hosted futures debates- across the latin american continent , the debate centred on what do we love about the catholic culture we have inherited from the colonial past

it was decided the franciscan was- demanding that most educated professional lived and learnt with the poorest was the greatest cultural joy- the brazilian paulo freire pubished how to apply this to education - the general ideology of preferential option poor (POP) involves:
professional should live with the poorest
identify system failures (or absences eg access to electricity) trapping the poorest and where ncessary call in other professionals to help resolve this
as new technology , priortise what this could innovate for the poorest - note im modern paralnce this is called leapfroging - so eg solar can have the greatest advantage to this not on electricity gruds

3 questions stem from this:
a) where was the idea of POP applied
b) what other cultures celebrate a similar demand
c) how does this take on extra significance in times like today where we have abouta decade to transform systems so that youth can sustain the human race

unfortunately the cold war spiralled with particularly dismal impacts across much of south america which didnt get many national chances to transform round pop

so which countries or parts of professional markets did?

the main country to apply pop was bangaldesh from 1971 - it was this cultural value set that empower the world poorest voilage women to develop bangladesh in two parts- pre-digital networking fro 1976 ; with pop applications of mobile and microsoilar from 1996

apart from market sctors that bangaldesh redesigned around the poorest's livelihoods, last mile partners in health were developed by farmer and kim linking exchnges from bostons most health stidents and profesisonjals with
haiti
and later peru, russia and rwanda

when jim kim came to the world bank in 2012 he challenged staff under 35 to look at how to POP their professions - its not obvious that any cases have scaled this directly from the world bank ; partbshjips have been fpormed - eg between jim kim and ope francis in 2013; some of the new development projects across the belt road maps that the wprld bank supports may be seen as a step in the pop direction

lech walesa says that he would never have dared lead poland's race to free itselff from russia without the moral support of pope jon paul; clearly tofay's pope francis is chalenging those with sustainability networls to value applying their methoids preferentially to the most needy cases - refugees on various belt raod hotspots are one of the clearest cases he support - as our all sectors that need to chnage if climate crisis is to be alleviated
