Overview of research areas students most need support with in 2012-2013.

This academic year 012-013 was started with Yunus-led social business and jobs competitions in North Carolina and Oregon from which major new focus of student social busibess networks are proiritised. The big news between this and last university year is that the President of Tuskegee University is helping create a new university of ending poverty in alabama's poorest county whose unique competence will build on the 13 years of student processes that 100 southern universities have collaborated around since 2000 thanks to www.ofcvc.org in Atlanta. Community-based microeconomics has never been so strongly represented by the region's entrepreneurs since Yunus left the regions state system in 1972 to return to Bangaldesh! 

NORTH CAROLINA , GREENSBORO 27 Sept 2012 .and the winners are

Fund - the number 1 project student network currently is the winner of the North Carolina Student Competition Penny Funding 1 facebook

Secondplace went to students pitching a biogas business from hog lagoons- we are helping to form a monthly debrief on relevant bioenergy knowledge - see footnote for typical invitation

Third place went to an innovation in portable sanitation - dungaroo. This can have impacts botyh in america (eg a better portaloo at events) and dveloping world where there is no seerage infrastructure. Yunus main partner in singpaore is a world leading social entrepreneur in sanitation - see www.worldtoilet.org


OREGON: 1 October 2012 - and the winners are - coming soon


The 3 projects no celebrating tgeir first birthday out of Georgia concerN all youth who want to:

end illiteracy

renew jobs around their states greatest underemployed skillbank caused by global industry leaving skilled workers behing


tell us if you are actively tackling any of these social chalenges and we will help link you in to the relevant student and university networks - chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk or phone our washington dc hotline 1 301 881 1655 where we are continuously mentoing students between now and 6 Aprul 2013 the date of the tristate stident sb competition being linked in by the university of district of columbia


example of practice support circulation networks- mails emerging on bioenergy

yunus- arguably the knowledge of the grameen shakti network which yunus mentioned at UDC was scaling at moores law speed - half a miliion solar units in total by end 2010, 1 million by end 2011 is most at risk of hasina destruction -at one time it was rumored in dhaka that if yunus ceded her the shakti network she would lay off her hate campaign; bangladesh's low lying grounds are likely to be first 100+million nation to be washed away if climate goes wrong; opportunities to connect green student competition teams with knowledge links are timely
suggested modus operandi- reply if you wish to join this circulation group; after that if you have any relevant green news links post them in during the month and I will send out one aggregate email at start of each new month to all on circulation list (if someone else wants to take over as circulator that's fine with me)
here are a few of the leads I am monitoring as well as yunus' grameen shakti
http://www.microenergycredits.com/ - set up by a co-founder of grameen shakti who lives in seattle- aims to negotiate carbon credits for clean energy networks accounted for by microcredits (I believe typical partners include finca uganda, xacbank mongolia)
sam daley harris founder of microcreditsummit is currently deeply involved in linking in grassroots green advocacy around usa
the philanthropy family (sainsburys) who with prince charles run the http://ashden.org/ awards - my local yunus villager youth correspondent has been asked to organise her tour of bangladesh for early next year; we are also searching for which are other regions lead green prize networks so we can connect them at top decision-making level; I am particularly searching for who is japan's most connected person on clean energy as that country is desperate for a transformation and best plaved to watch yunus back on multiple issues, and it will be interesting to see how many of the 12000 youth at yunus competition in tokyo on 30 january come up with green projects
northcarolina 2nd place project - hog lagoon biogas; last week http://www.convergences2015.org/ prize went prakti biogas ovens; I also met the founder of huskpower who is both an acumen funded company and a former prize winner of the global social venture competition
I know personally stewart wallis founder of barefootpower and a winner of major ashoka prize;
I am still looking for a way to link up the knowledge of neville williams - he started solar in usa under instructions of billy carter, and when us showed little interest started the developing world network http://www.self.org/ - but i belive he is in process of retiring. Yunus started gshakti after being briefed by Neville
Once a circulation group is up I will ask bhuiyan to appraise whether this can be a practice model that works for student competition teams to tap into and know that their practice passions have a continuing linkin structure. As my father reported over his 40 year development of the genre of entreprenurial revolution at The Economist , new sources of energy are only one of the 2 innovations ever to have sustained a leap forward of the whole human race's development. Economists who do not value this truth know must be removed from your nation's and states' policy making as fast as humanly possible if sustainability of future geberations is a national goal.


leslie- i notice nc state appears to have formed a knowledge cooperative around hog biogas http://www.bae.ncsu.edu/programs/extension/manure/energy/digester.pdf
any chance of seeing whether your number 2 winning team and they can link together-I am confident that bioenergy will be a continual focus of yunus usa competitions so good to establish a first base out of north carolina
Lord sainsbury's daughter who with prince charles runs the microenergy prize network http://ashden.org/ is a family friend so if north carolina can get traction around bioenergy social business I am sure she will want to hear the good news- am provisionally  involved in planning her next visit to bangladesh early next year with additional help from my friends at Japanese embassy in dhaka. I am hoping that yunus 12000 student competition in tokyo 30 january will massively connect green projects.

JOSB is home for valuetrue microcredit ratings inspired by scottish microeconomists- papers relating to our 3 primary criteria:

  • a) is microcredit owned by or in trust for poorest? - journalise why is impact of this vital apart from ensuring value of productivity is sustained (not sucked out);
  • b) every service of the microcredit aims to redesign value chain around the microentrepreneur in ways that minimise risk of being an individual income generator provided you are a hard worker; such microfranchising is arguably the biggest source of 3 billion new jobs that the net generation can co-create if you value the login of our 1984 future history on the net generation
  • every opportunity to integrate technology and energy is attended to since history shows these are the only stimuli that can exponentially advance communities wealth and health
