THANKS be TO Glasgow U alumn fazle abed- small may be beautiful but in ending poverty, large scale coalition empowering women community building is asks how many 1 billion dollar sdg investments a year can women empowerment coalitions inspire: brac bangladesh billion dollar microfinance loans ; abed ultra poor billion dollar grants a year; bkash billion dollar cashless banking for poor ; brac bank billion dollar youth engagement and sme city bank; billion dollars of lowest cost remittances; billion dollar investments in each of 5 ages of schooling ; billion dollar vaccine empowering poorest families grants ; 10 agricultural value chains whose crop sxcience and ai data is networked around poorest asian farmers...

IR43210-four industrial revolutions have emerged since
1760 when 2 scots watt and smith began IR1 the age of humans and machines focusing first on machine energy/power way beyond that of horse and man-
since 1957 - thanks to legacy of john von neumann- it has been possible to map ut 5 types of economies with 2 new ones IR3, IR4 being added by alumni of von neumann;
in between IR2 -telecoms revolutions started to scale when scot alexander bell offered americans first opportunity tp scale telephones across a continent .. soon telegrams and phones were being supplemented by radio, then television - then satellite telecoms which was to mobilise personal and societal devices; whilst IR4 has accelerateds as the most valuable games human livelihoods ever played from late 2000s both with unprecedented data connecting worldwide human decision-making and by then over a billion times more computing power than had coded moon landing- while the monetary rise may focus ever more on ir4;
nonetheless sustainability's last chance in 2020s depends on integration starting from IR0-
in 2021 half a billion asian women celebrated having lifted a billion out of the most extreme poverty -under a dollar a day- it is their work that needs to be included in the way millennials understand mother earth if they are to be the first sustainability generation.
300 trillion dollars of pension funds not one cent invested in sdgswashington dc last soft power debate before covid lockdown
goal 3- market last mile health
*oral rehydration & cholera
*village door to door non-prescription plus search
*vaccination services
*other tropical

goal 2 -last mile market human energy eg water , milk, rice, one vitamin veggie are essential to rural life
*other veggie
*cash/green agriculture: tea, silk, forrestry, cold storage

goal 1 relevant village financing essential if local entrepreneurs to scale positive incomes beyond endless charity:
microfranchising models completely change aid - grants only for demonstrable capacity- bottom up trust investment
ultra grad- pre mf

goal 4 livelihood action learning needed at every age group -both students and teachers:
interactions between every age group primary
early or pre-adolescence

the archives of fazle abed - collected by friends - have we missed a keynote lecture rsvp

community resiliency is needed both to be ready for climate challenges, legal protection eg where more powerful citizens dump waste on poorer, and so that underclasses do not exst- if any demographic is exluded from productivity sustainability is impossible to generate .................
brac began with building for 100000 refugees - 16000 homes at under$2 per home- eg village males built own homes- from then on, brac raised livelihoods of women from close to 0% to 100% -in parallel china wasa undergoing women hold up half sky revolution- consequently village women empowered to swap solutions -ultimately ending extreme poverty of billion rural people over 45 year period
barefoot lawyers
initial sanitation design pit latrines-
by building 100000 regional lab as early as 1972- brac could test service concepts -and then scale across all 60000+ villages -fast with life saving action learning eg oral rehydration, vaccines - as steadily as investment trust could scale moicrofranchieses of positive cashflow village mothers businesses- overall brac's servant leasership model scaled faster than top down goverment which at time of indeoenence had barely any tax revenue and few engineering skilled people matching abed's 10 years experience which had seen him rise as engineer to region ceo of royal dutch shell oil company
asia rising survey's from The Economist - norman macrae
7 May 1977 survey Two Billion People- Asia ..1975 Asian Pacific Century 1975-2075 1977 survey China

join the forums of friends of worlds record job's sir fazle abed abed reported economist asia rising 1975-77- two uniquely asian models -belt capital roadsters and rural keynianism have sustianed rise of 70% of humans who are asian -because of western empires vast majority of people on asian continent had been left out of first industrial revolutions - not being on electricity grids they were left out of both ir1 carbon powers industrial revolution and ir2 telecoms revolution ; by 1960 japan korea south and far east islands had recovered from world war 2 - they linked in the roadster model and from 1972 bangladesh became the worlds open lab for rural keynes while from 1976 china became a rural girls networker as well as multipier of the radster model- so the purest models of how half a billion women ended extreme poverty come from bangladesh coalitions but the biggest rise come from how china multiplied both models on a contiental scale

hi everyone I hope you are well 

I am Lynette Purvis and I am the current chair of the of

 I first got
involved to the 2050 climate group back 
in 2015 as a participant on our first young leaders development program I've stayed involved as a volunteer ever since and today I'm going to be talking to you about cup now at the 2050 climate group we have been hugely privileged not only to have attended but also have presented at 4 of the last 5 cups and so with the exciting news that the UK is going to be hosting cop 26 I thought I would share with you first of all an introduction to cup 
what is it ?who goes? why is it important where is it held?
then secondly I'll share some 2050  
climate groups experiences of attending cop..lastly I'll share what we know so far about the upcoming cop 26 including some ideas for how you can engage for almost
for three decades world governments have met 
every year to forge a global response to the climate emergency the name given to that meeting is cop which stands for conference of the parties 

the parties are the almost 200 nations and territories that have ratified the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change or to use its acronym the UN s Triple C ratification of the UN 
Triple C has made the party's treaty 
bound to avoid dangerous climate change and to find ways to reduce global emissions in an equitable way cop is where the parties meet to negotiate --  how to do this agreement can only be made by consensus  of all the parties whilst this takes a lot of time and effort it means that  agreements reached at cup such as the Paris agreement have a
globally cop first took place in Berlin 
in 1995 and has met annually ever since in different locations around the world
cop 26 will be the 26th cup and will be 
hosted by the UK so is cop 26 important?
it's important because scientifically 
and politically cop 26 is being described as humanity's last chance to do something meaningful about climate change-- it is seen as particularly important because cop 25 in Madrid dec 2019 -hastily reconvened from chile)  left a raft of complex issues unresolved a lot of the work that was meant to be completed in Madrid has been rolled over to cop 26 instead meanwhile
outside the cop conference all global 
emissions are at an all-time high and none of the big countries are even on track to meeting their obligations under the Paris agreement --cop 26 is also important for the UK as the host it will be the biggest international summit the UK has ever hosted it will bring together almost 200 global leaders and some 30,000 delegates and it will put the UK on the international stage as a
Scottish charity the 2050 climate group 
are of course particularly excited that Cop is due to be held in Glasgow our members of our network have previously travelled far and wide to attend cop -I remember our own journey to cop23 all by train from Edinburgh to bonn via London Brussels and Cologne and back
again to be honest I loved every minute 
of it and it's nothing compared to greta thonBerg's three-week journey across the Atlantic Ocean to attend cop 25 in Chile / Greta only had to hitch a lift back again when the venue changed to Madrid at the last minute
this time it would be great to have cop 
on our doorstep so that we can maximize attendance by those in our network and
make the most of this exciting 
opportunity so what is 2050 climate groups previous experience of attending cops- our first cup was none other than cop21 in Paris in 2015 where all 195 parties agreed to adopt the first-ever legally binding global climate change agreement our friends who attended tell us about the day the Paris agreement was adopted they say that thousands of people were cheering clapping singing screaming crying yelling torn between euphoria and utter disbelief at the magnitude of what had just been achieved our second Cup experience could not have been more different
we arrived in Marrakech the night before 
the conference opened ready to give our presentation the following day imagine

our alarm when an IT mix-up meant that 
thousands of conference registrations including ours had disappeared we feared
the worst but thankfully we managed to 
negotiate our way into the conference just in time to take to the stage and present our work we assumed that things couldn't possibly get any more FRUSTRATING for the rest of the conference BUT we were very wrong a day later we woke up to the news that Donald Trump had been elected US president it was only one year after the Paris agreement had been signed and he was intending to withdraw the u.s.from it
walking into the conference that morning 
it felt like the Dementors had sucked all the hope and happiness from the air--we went along to watch an American Youth Climate Organisation present on their work but 15 minutes later there was still no sign of them they're not coming
someone finally called out; 
they're too shocked and upset to even get out of bed a room full of people sat in silence-- I looked at my 2050 climate group friends next to me- we nodded knowingly and we made our way to the stage --we're not who you werE expecting to see here today we said but we're guessing that like us you could probably do with some cheering up so if
you'd like stick around 
we'd love to share with you the inspiring things the young people of Scotland are doing in the fight against
climate change and so we presented at 
cop 22 for a second time the following year was cop 23 and bonn this experience was particularly exciting for me as it was the first time we had accreditation for the Blue Zone you see cops are organized into two areas known as zones-there's the inner zone known as the blue zone and the OUTER zone known as the Green Zone

 the two zones are usually in different venues physically separated but located y a short walk away

 the inner blue zone is handed over to and controlled by the UN for the duration of the two-week conference it becomes international territory and falls under international law; it is within the blue zone where the international negotiations take place conference rooms
filled with countries delegated 
negotiators negotiating every Clause and comma of the UN agreements it lies beyond the security cordon and only those with UN accreditation can enter
the blue zone also hosts the cops 
opening and closing ceremonies and speeches from VIP and celebrity speakers
speaking in the Blue Zone you might 
expect to see Greta Thornberg or  Barack Obama or  sportstars among many many more 

the other zone is called the green zone it is publicly accessible and offers a platform for civil society youth organizations businesses and others to showcase their activities and have their voices heard
it's within the green zone that the 2050 
climate group have previously presented; on our work within the green zone youcan expect to be dazzled by exhibitions talks and panels art music and dancing
you can expect to experience the latest 
low carbon technologies low carbon transport and low carbon treats and you can expect to feel pretty overwhelmed by all -to be honest always wanting to be in at least 10 different places like being a massive Music Festival and wanting to experience the headliners the newcomers
although overwhelming cops have always 
made me feel optimistic - have you ever had days where you think solving climate change is just too difficult? what is the point in even trying? well I used to but then at cops I experienced the whole world coming together to solve the climate crisis together and that gave me cause for optimism so what do we know so
now about cop 26 and how can you get 
involved cop 26? 
it was originally due to take place in November 2020 but it's being postponed due to the global coronavirus pandemic
when we last spoke for the UK government in december 2920
 they said it will be hosted in nov 2021
it's expected that the Blue Zone where 
the negotiations will take place will be held within the Glasgow s East
or the Scottish event campus to give i
ts full name as for the publicly accessible green zone it's expected to be held just across the water within the Glasgow science center and outside the official blue and green zones there is expected to be a huge program of unofficial events taking place all across Glasgow all across Scotland and all across the UK these will be organized by a very wide range oforganizations businesses and individuals
and they will range from conferences 
dinners and networking events to rallies marches and protests so with so much
going on how can you get involved?
lots of ways here are just some examples-- 
you can keep informed about what is going on through us your 2050 climate
group be sure to sign up to our email 
mailing list and follow us on Twitter Facebook and Instagram so we can keep
you updated we're delighted to be one of 
the few Scottish organizations who has secured accreditation to the blue zone
and we look forward to sharing our 
thoughts and experiences right from the heart .. we're also planning to run
our own Cup themed youth climate summit 
in the run-up and we look forward to a number of you hopefully joining us there
as well as getting involved in our 
activities we would encourage you to collaborate with a huge number of other organizations who also have their own exciting plans for Cop 26-- for example we understand that  young scot , youth link, youth climate coalition, the royal geographical society and many others..have plans to get involved 
we would also encourage you to register 
to attend the Green Zone if you can the conference will run for about two weeks
and you can usually attend on whichever d
ays you wish- from our past experience we find that you just need to register in advance and bring photo ID with you on the day-- just FYI the middle weekend and the second week are usually the busiest with around 15,000 people expected to attend on the busiest day
last but not least we'd encourage you to  
get involved in shaping the plans for the Green Zone plans are still at an early stage but we know from our discussions with the UK government that they want the Green Zone to be as inclusive as possible they're looking for contributions from everyone youth. groups academia business civil society trade unions indigenous communities the list goes on they are also interested in hearing what we'd like to see within the Green Zone to make it as engaging and informative as possible
and they were looking for people 
particularly young people to showcase their activities on the stages and in the exhibition areas -have you been involved in any exciting climate projects are you particularly proud of? any climate actions you've contributed to whether in your personal life professional life or within your political sphere? have you got an entrepreneurial idea if any of these
ideas very engaging with cop spark your 
interest feel free to let us know and we'll happily support you in any way that we can thank you .. I hope you learned something new and if you have any questions at all then please do not hesitate to get in touch

-there is also glasgow city council appointing cop26 ambassadors  Volunteer at COP26
