 download- synopsis on book on most important question ever asked- it all began here in Scotland over quarter of a millennium ago

The UK has invested more than any nation in social broadcasting media but at a time when peoples around the world need world service investigative journalism as to why low-trust top-down systems are spinning so much youth unemployment even as we could be celebrating the freedom of a million times more collaboration technology that when man raced to the moon.

..It was UK economist Keynes that concluded economists were capable of

designing futures that people most needed or

destroying futures peoples most needed but nothing much in between at times of great change.

My father's life work mainly at the Economist mapped how to make 2010s the most productive time for youth with the maturity of the first net generation and the possiblity to invest in co-producing exciting millennium goals

On 2 January 2012, PM Cameron made a commitment; to  use the Olympics and celebrations marking 60 years of the queen's reign in 2012 to return Britain to strength despite continuing economic gloom. Over the last 7 years grassroots networks such as these have been debating this timeline- see lower down for our suggestions on what to empower youth and peoples to do to co-produce 2010s as Britain's most productive decade

 . Getting real  in 2012 about segmenting countries jobs: Germany needs to understand the advantages of being different from the rest of Europe not force what makes it economical on others; it also needs to get real about inviting other europeean nations to reduce their spends on defence while increasing its. UK needs to demand that those who help promote the olympics reduce spends on ads (the least economical media and collaborate in job creating media); it also needs to take Sir Ronald Cohen's lead in demonstrating how 100 billion dolars of charitable assets can actionably invest in youth now instead of maintain ivory towers. Spain needs to be led by Queen Sofia's love of youth job creation not politicians cutting investments in youth; Belgium as epicentre of the drive to m needs to join in partnerships which involve youth in searching out which social solutions to produce in which communities; France (with europe's portals to how microcredit and global partnering in sustainability) and scotland (with a love of nurses and girl power and journals search to renew community through celebrating social action: service by the people for the people ) can help belgium> Moreover, the dna of entrepreneurial revolution began with these auld allies in late 18th century and has been joyously renewed by these countries partnerships with dr yunus over the last 7 years. Austria can be an interesting mediator of potential conflicts between all of the above .

Recomendations after 7 years research among many thousands of entrepreneurial revolutionaries on what Cameron could do to empower youth productivity through appropraitely staged celebrations of London's worldwide good news (olympics, quenn elizabeth's 60th )

1) Do as many 1000 youth job brainstormings as possible - make they more fashionable to sponsor than any media a brand ahs ever ysed; get the BBC to congratulate all who celebrate this smartest medium of 21st C

2) Host makerfaires and singforhope (and the choir) intercultural festivals all round the surrounding vicinities of the olymnpics stadium -make this frjnge as exciting to ytoung peopel as the sporst stars. Invite sports stars who wish to adopt a millennium goal issue or a job creation search to attend a university of stars where they can find mentors who would be happy to host them when they want some privacu on their world tours

3) Link in every city across UK or Europe where social business incubation experiments are due to happen so that other creative people (eg chefs) can offer to develop franchises owned by the community. Before and after the olympics do a road tour of these centres filming a social solutions Dragons Den.

4) Ensure that London TimeOut and Whats on publications feature the new favourite tourist sites such as Prince Charles Green palace ( the new name for the solar-empowered Clarence Palace). When I was a child - I-Spy guides were great fun to spot london's hidden treasures- which treasures does London sport know which are designed for and by youth productivity and community sustainability?  Invite cities round the world to twin up around project foci - which city has parallel youth productivity sites? How can their youth networks keep on cheering each other's good enws long after the olympics has burnt its final flame?

5) have postboxes pop up everywhere that olympic crowds swarm for mapping and reporting social solutions competition relevant to the november 2011 launch of Entrepreneurial Union and celebrating civil society regenarted by youthn all over Europe.

From Hype to Rigor: MIT's New Workshop Builds Entrepreneurial Ecosystems Worldwide

Tue, 10/09/2012 - 11:04am

This article origianlly ran October 8th, 2012 on Brad Feld's Startup Revolution.

By Beto Juárez

This past weekend, seven teams from regions across the world met in Edinburgh, Scotland to continue on a two-year journey to develop strategies and implement plans to build startup communities in their regions. Delegations from Scotland, Finland, Hangzhou (China), Turkey, Andalucia (Spain), Veracruz (Mexico), and New Zealand were all taking part in the MIT Regional Entrepreneurship Acceleration Program (REAP) organized and run by the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship.

The teams were led through this three-day workshop by MIT Sloan faculty whose research has contributed significantly to the academic understanding of the drivers and impact of innovation-driven entrepreneurial ecosystems and startup communities. The program originated as a response to frequent requests of faculty to give brief talks on the subject and consult to regions around the globe; the desire to take a deeper look at how to better examine and accelerate these entrepreneurial ecosystems and a commitment to driving towards impact resulted in the MIT REAP program. They formed MIT REAP as part of an comprehensive effort to engage all stakeholders in a regional strategy, putting their research into practice.

One part of the MIT REAP curriculum is to assemble a task force of key players across the ecosystem to form a strong and defensible strategy for building an entrepreneurial community within a given region. Having a strategy for your community follows from the findings from Professors Scott Stern and Fiona Murray who have dedicated their careers to studying entrepreneurship and innovation. This past week in Edinburgh, MIT REAP members were able to closely examine one cluster emerging in Scotland by touring sites across the wave energy ecosystem. In addition to hosting many leading wave energy companies born out of Scottish universities, including Pelamis and AWS, Scotland is home to the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC), a third-party certification center for new technologies. Scotland is geographically located in one of the five regions in the world with consistent and strong wave and tidal activity. The region’s leadership and drive in this area now mean that other regions are unlikely to overtake its position as wave energy leader. MIT REAP members examined the unique characteristics of the region that enable this position and how the public and private sector actors contribute to its competitiveness.

The MIT REAP teams also covered the hot topic of accelerators and their recent proliferation across the globe. Bill Aulet, one of the three core MIT REAP faculty members, even wrote a small write-up in Startup Communities about the MIT Founders’ Skills Accelerator which gave 10 student-entrepreneur teams up to $20K to found a company this past summer. The MIT REAP teams were aware of accelerator’s potential to fulfill part four of the Boulder thesis: to engage the entrepreneurial stack. However, with that awareness also came a reluctance to simply launch copy-cat accelerators with low value to entrepreneurs and other participants. Yet the appetite remains strong for knowledge and transferable take-aways from accelerators such as TechStars, as regions around the world continue to search for sparks to flame full-fledged startup communities.

This first cohort of regions will complete the MIT REAP program in late 2013, coinciding with the launch of a second cohort. To learn more about becoming an MIT REAP member or how to put your own region’s initiatives and innovation-driven entrepreneurial activity on the map, you can visit

UK Grassroots networks concerned since 2005 to colaborate round youth's greatest sustainability crises

Over the last 7 years , our maps out of UK have been connecetd by youth and peoples networks concerned with 2010s productive decade. We have integrated actionable resources and foci such as:

  • GUk The Good Hubs Guide
  • GS GUk GEU GG Mtv YunusBook 2000 network
  • GS GEU Mtv Journal of Social Business (edited by Adam Smith Scholars);
  • GS GH End Nurseless Villages led out of a Glaswegian commitment to dr yunus in 2008;
  • GS GF Mtv Glasgow-Paris Twin Cities of collaboration entrepreneurship (back in 1800 the E-word emerged from French-Scottish partnerships aimed at reconciling crises spun out of London's top-down empire);
  • GUk GM GEU what to viralise around london at time of olympics so that the BBC has other good news stories that sports (as advocated by olympics star Carolina Kluft as early as 2004); futureofbbc ;

    As we searched other movements started to emerge out of London as having worked on their own exponential growth for collaboration entrepreneurship:
    Gen the green movement of

    Gec the investors movements aeound Sir Ronald Cohen which also invited Al Gore's start of teh decade sustainabiuloity investment boutique generationig to partbner
  • After 7/7 , fifty people met at the Hub in Islington - declared the biggest crisis goal of the next 7 years concerning each of them - and committed to share peer network maps on each goal. 2102 was chosen as the deadline for engaging the BBC in what can be its duty as the world's most ersporced social media to investigative journalise pro-youth social solutions without any influence from politicians or corporations or any other powers that be. 
 What isnt needed is BBC journalists posing as gurus in this great quest for pursposeful leadership and youth productivity. In spirit of mediating, journalists can host Oxford Union type debates and reality tv shows that raise optimistic questioning of why an old system that is collapsing and what will be needed so youth can take up its transformation back to sustainability. Unlike commercial pundits, the BBC should help innovative leaders confidently proclaim there there is no answer until the people go and start searching it. Today 90% of the most entrepreneurial (value multiplying) knowledge wasn;t connectable 20 years ago.  The educational opportunity of the net generation is the fusion of best of mass and new media inquiry. Let's iteratively connect internet media and mass media to have positive impacts on each other rather than dumbing down ones. London's great and good whould invite Richard Murdoch to sponsor a brainstrust on te future of good news media beginning with him declaring a peace treaty on the BBC as the jewel in the world service crown - a public broadcaster for 7 billion peoples can make its imprint on social media now in ways that no other ekmdia can
Prior to 7/7 the network that most raised our consciousness on the Coming War Between Goodwill and Badwill networks was instigated by Australian medics and youth mediators who hosted the first summit of Global Reconciliation in London 2003 keynoted by Mary Robinson and with testimonies from 50 cultures around the world on conflicts whose origins could be darwn back to London days as epicenjtre of Empire. Fortunately, the 1843 Founder of The Economist started the mother of all Un-empire networks so the opportunity to dialogue both humanly and economically was rebprn (out of the same meeting space that Betrand Russell used to inspire wotld citizen debates from)
