. What clues from your family tree match adam smith's lessons on preventing human extinction?

Adam Smith was in the right time and space to question how the age of machines and humans would be the most exciting time to be alive- for better or worse machines could change everything. Adam tried to map how every perosns life could have equal accees to applying machines

We can divide adam's exciting times into 3 urgent future reviews:

the next 10 years sustainability goals- eg come to adam smiths glasgow uni cop 26 to mediate that

the first 75 years of the birth of the united nations 1945-2020

the first 165 years of humans and machines which climaxed in world war 2

I come from 5 generations of diaspora scots - so my family tree's cluetrain is quite long- in particular my father trained hundreds of journalists for humanity that most history is bunk - its written by the rich and famous not by we the peoples family tree.

Lets' suppose you are american - your family tree's most urgent lessons for preventing extinction wont be the same as mine but can we find some snaps. if you are an american woman you have different lessons than american man; if you are a native american you have different lessons than if you are an immigrant; if you are an american white, what white empire crisis in rurope did you family flee from to help unite the american dream; if you are american black or brown, what is the most unique lesson to prevent extinction of our children or their childrens childrens. these are the most exciting times to list clues to how 7.5 billion beings can help save each other..

welcome to 5G 2020- our main economics cooperation project

norman helped audiences of The Economist coin and debate telecommuting in the 1960s- his purpose was to argue for change in lifelong education ahead of time for every millennial to grow up as a brainworker or performer or last mile community celebrator of all lives matter --most jobs known in the 1960s would have gone just like most jobs changed whenever the motor car replaced the horse and cart- but that did not mean there would be any less work to do to ensure any community a child was born into offered a great chance to thrive norman's arguments weren't different from adam smth's at the start of the first age of humans and machines that was all about the energy machines could bring beyond the power of man or horse- with one big exception- this time the revolution would take 60 years at most- in other words within 3 living generations- youth , parents, grandparents what you needed to learn to have a great life and livelihhod would be wholly different- the risk of education systems examining old stuff instead of empowering teachers and students to exploe the new new world of community engagement, physical and digital classrooms would be all or nothing in terms of sustaining homo sapinens; some now define the 2020s as the age og industrial revolution 4- that fits normans model 1 was macine energy, 2 was machines assisting communications, 3 was what humans did with machines that could compute far more than 1960s as last decade of the slide-ruler, fourth everything would have converged so that operational platforms would be hosted with data crunched in real time -this would co-create public services the likes of which governments could barely imagine unless led by enginneers not lawyers of rules written in stone

Solved: How the World’s Great Cities Are Fixing the Climate Crisis
Cities are taking action on climate change because they can—and because they must. This is a clear-eyed and compelling case outlining that, if replicated at pace and scale, the actions of leading global cities point the way to creating a more sustainable planet.

Gabriella Gomez-Mont

Former Chief Creative Officer, Mexico City

As former Chief Creative Officer of Mexico City, Gabriella founded and directed Laboratorio para la Ciudad, the award-winning experimental and creative office of the Mexico City government, reporting to the Mayor. The Lab was created to tackle urban challenges, creating novel transdisciplinary methodologies and participatory practices, exploring ways to find common ground in a gargantuan, diverse (and often divided) city. Hence the Lab’s projects were multiple, and often paradigmatic – such as crowdsourcing the Mexico City Constitution. She is a Yale World Fellow, MIT Director’s Fellow, a GeorgeTown University Global Cities Initiative Visiting Fellow and TED Senior Fellow. Gabriella is also part of the international advisory committee for the Mayor of Seoul on Social Innovation, as well as NACTO’s Streets for Kids, The XXII Triennale of Milan, C40´s Knowledge Hub, Harvard`s Mexican Cities Initiative, Canada’s MaRS Lab, amongst others. She was also named one of the 100 most creative people in business by Fast Company magazine in 2018. She is now working with several cities and in the process of launching Experimentalista: a novel type of creative studio specialized in cities, public imagination and system change.

Does the panel think that in crisis contexts , where girls are often so disadvanted in education, do we need Girl focused funding streams (and programming)  in EiE or is Gender responsive funding (and programming) sufficient to close the gap?
This question has been answered live
christopher macrae (You) 07:13 AM  Deleted by host
i've been to bangladesh 15 times - does your initiative have a main contact point with alumni od late sir fazle abed at brac university or any of abed partners in refugee girl empowerment
Kenneth Geyi 07:18 AM  
What plan is in place to ensure that the affected people are empowered . Capacity building need to be in place focusing on change management.
Emilie Rees Smith 07:22 AM 
Thank you for your important question. We will try to address in the panel, in the meantime affected populations are a key cross-cutting aspect of the EiE-GenKit. The GenKit will be rolled out in collaboration with partners on the ground including capacity building initiatives, orientation and training
Noemi Robiati 07:18 AM  
how is this kit different from the one launched last week called: "Reimagining Girls' Education: Solutions to Keep Girls Learning in Emergencies" by UNICEF. And why not have a concerted effort to have one?
Sandrine Bohan-Jacquot 07:19 AM  
Thank you for this great toolkit and collaboration! I see with great pleasure that disability is taken into account in particular regarding data collection. Could you please expand on the intersectionnality of Gender, Age and Disability and the main toolkit recommendations to take this intersectionality into account practically? Thanks
christopher macrae (You) 07:23 AM  
for about 10 years now there has been talk of urgent need for 11 yearvup peer to peer girls health curricula- is there any progress on this- if so what bookmark or contact is starting point? also is unai (academic impact) connected with what you are doing- when i went to unai summit in 2015 unai arranged partnerships in nanotech with deepdata applcations in girls poorest villages with india and other partners- has this evolved into anything usable regarding vaccine #aiforgood; also is there a map of how your knowhow varies by minimum platform accessible - radio, 2g mobile, ... recently unicef henrietta fore annouced giga project  narrowing gap between mapping where schools are and wi-fi acess but is that 5 years out or is it part of solution before then

Thank you all for sharing your work and specific experiences working with girls in diverse contexts of conflict. Working in the refugee settlements in Uganda, our target is the refugee children with disabilities. While generally girls are very vulnerable, refugee girls with disabilities are even more vulnerable. You can imagine the intersectionality of gender, being a refugee and even worse, a refugee girl with disability! Listening to all your presentations, one challenge that keeps recurring is the fact that most times, children with disabilities are left out in all these . That EiE actors fail to pay specific attention to disability as a factor of heightened vulnerability is indeed a worrying trend. 

From Emilie Rees Smith to Everyone:  07:59 AM

Yes thank you for numerous comments/questions raising this important point. The EiE-GenKit includes disability as a cross-cutting theme with links to relevant additional resources on this too

From Leticia Amuduki to Everyone:  08:00 AM

Think of the challenges that girls in emergency situations are faced with, and even more, think of the challenges a refugee girls with disability in an emergency situation faces!! During school closure owing to the covid-19 pandemic, while refugee children with disabilities were left out in the approaches adopted for continued learning, refugee girls with disabilities, were even more affected. From being used as home keepers by their own caregivers, to being victims of gbv from lack of or limited ability to protect themselves or even report such cases, to being married off and even in some cases being sacrificed for ritual cleansing.

From Emilie Rees Smith to Everyone:  08:07 AM

Thank you for all your contributions and important reflections, we will feed to panel and reach out after the event with further information

From SUSAN DURSTON to Everyone:  08:12 AM

Radio appears to be still a wonderful means of communication. It seems to me to be an idea for a specialist interest group. We had child radio reporters during the Ebola out break in Sierra Leone. Girls were at the fore front, and raised their own issues.

The kit is powerful field asset for the conflict and crises contexts, does it have direct linkages to the GBV responses/actions in the same contexts?
Emilie Rees Smith 07:41 AM 
Thanks you for your question, yes GBV is an important component of the EIE-GenKit and is addressed throughout the modules as well as dedicated information under the Kit's 'Implementation' section

Emilie Rees Smith 08:12 AM 
Thank you Outi, yes absolutely the education of women/mothers is key in promoting girls' education and integrated in the EiE-GenKit's modules
Emily Echessa 07:41 AM  
Thanks for excellent presentations. Questions -1) With the growing focus on girls education (and rightly so!), is there evidence  to infer that this triggers a backlash on girls & women in certain contexts? If so has the tool kit adequately addressed this? 2) Any considerations of reverse gender inequalities in education in certain contexts?
Adele Aubrey 07:42 AM  
Are there examples of how funding has been succesfully secured to pay for female teachers training and salary, and how girls have been supported in attending education.
Is there any organization here that supports girls with sanitary towels so that i could contact them - this is in Southern africa region. I am advocating for refugee girls who are affected by monthly menstruation.
Grazia Paoleri 07:45 AM  
In emergencies, there are usually far fewer female teachers, and girls are disproportionately affected when schools are dominated by men.
Are there special provisions on teacher training and salaries, and strategies to increase the supply of female educators and para-professionals who can be involved in teaching and mentoring? Grazia Paoleri - MYRP Secretariat Coordinator, South Sudan
Ayuba Irmiya 07:45 AM  
Due to the prolonged crisis in Northeastern part of Nigeria, the child have completely missed it on Education especially those that sufffered from GBV because of stigamatization that is going on. Out of school children are at high number in rural areas in NE Nigeria. Is there anything that is being done to help this young girls? Are there funding opportunities for Local/National NGOs working to alleviate these young girls?
Nneka Obasi 07:46 AM  
For Hawa, do any of your interventions include education for boys/men?
Emilie Rees Smith 08:24 AM 
Thank you Nneka we will pass the question to Hawa
Samantha Ross 07:47 AM  
Building or strengthening current structures in education planning to support education in emergencies and ensure these are gender focused, are crucial for sustainabiilty. School leaders, including community members, are essential in this process. Does the toolkit address the strengthening of mainstream and non-formal education systems, for example School Improvement Planning, so that emergencies and gender are routinely considered?
Emilie Rees Smith 08:18 AM 
Thank you Samantha, this is crucial. The EiE-GenKit absolutely focuses on strengthening both formal and non-formal education systems. The tools are designed to fit into and build on existing systems and processes used from sudden onset to protracted crisis to ensure a systematic approach to gender-responsive EiE
Feyi Rodway 08:01 AM  
Thank you for the presentations and for the toolkit. To what extent can the positive lessons learnt from responses to recent school closures be taken to scale? And a question for the toolkit team - were additional data/research gaps identified in the process of developing the toolkit?
Emilie Rees Smith 08:15 AM 
Thank you Feyi, the toolkit team identified a range of data/research gaps as part of the consultation and analysis phase of the EiE-GenKit's development. Many of the kit's tools were designed to respond to these gaps, especially those in the modules on needs assessment and analysis and on monitoring and evaluation - where action are designed to provide sustainable solutions by building in gender-responsive approaches to existing processes during these phases
Sandrine Bohan-Jacquot 08:06 AM  
Thanks, if they can expand beyond data collection, it would be great. Many thanks!

In the lead up to International Women’s Day 2021 on 8 March 2021 - ECW, INEE and UNGEI - three partners working together for gender equality in education in emergencies (EiE), have joined forces to launch a toolkit promoting gender-responsive and inclusive education interventions in emergency & protracted crises settings.

English Spanish French Arabic

3 March 2021, New York - Education Cannot Wait (ECW), the Inter-agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE) and the United Nations Girls’ Education Initiative (UNGEI), today launched a new toolkit to support stronger integration of gender equality in education responses for children and youth in countries affected by emergencies and protracted crises.

Armed conflicts, forced displacement, climate-induced disasters, health emergencies and other crises increase barriers to safe, quality education, especially for vulnerable children and youth. Girls, boys, women and men experience these barriers to education in different ways, resulting in an exacerbation of pre-existing gender inequalities and vulnerabilities. This is especially true during the COVID-19 pandemic which continues to cause unprecedented disruptions to learning worldwide for millions of crisis-affected girls and boys.

“As the world strives to address and recover from global impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, we must apply lessons learnt from previous crises. We know the tragic hardship that looms ahead for millions of girls and other vulnerable children and youth living in crisis settings. We can’t say we did not know. Unless we protect and empower them urgently with the safety, hope and opportunity of quality, inclusive education, we will have failed both them and ourselves. There is no excuse not to act now,” said Yasmine Sherif, Director of Education Cannot Wait, the global fund for education in emergencies and protracted crises. “In launching this new toolkit with our partners, we appeal to all education stakeholders to join us in putting gender equality at the centre of our collective emergency response to the pandemic. At Education Cannot Wait, we are committed to making girls’ education a reality across our investments, boldly, firmly and passionately.”

Previous health emergencies, like Ebola, Zika and SARS, led to school closures which disproportionately affected girls and women. In crises, adolescent girls are particularly vulnerable and face increased risks of sexual exploitation, gender-based violence, child marriage and early pregnancy. This is proving to be the case with the COVID-19 pandemic. Analysis conducted by UNHCR and the Malala Fund already show that 50 per cent of refugee girls in secondary school may not ever return when their classrooms open. This is why the new ‘EiE-GenKit’ comes as a timely, ground-breaking resource for aid practitioners to ensure education in emergencies interventions are both gender-responsive and inclusive.

“Education plays a key role in redefining gender norms in any situation, but especially in humanitarian situations, where a good education that is gender-transformative can break cycles of violence and promote tolerance and reconciliation,” said Antara Ganguli, Director of the UN Girls’ Education Initiative, “We must harness this potential and ensure that all learners of all genders are able to contribute equally and positively to their communities’ recovery, as a cornerstone of sustainable peace and development”.

When gender-responsive, quality, inclusive education is available to all - including crisis-affected girls and boys - it has the potential to transform children’s futures, build up societies and lead to sustainable peace. The ‘EiE-GenKit’ equips education practitioners with the tools to achieve that vision.

“Now is the time to leverage the power of education in emergencies. Together we can reverse gender inequalities and transform education for women and girls, men and boys. We must commit to leave no one behind,” said Dean Brooks, Director of the Inter-agency Network for Education in Emergencies.

The ‘EiE-GenKit’ was developed over two years through an extensive consultation process involving the review of over 150 existing education in emergencies and gender resources, with contributions from over 80 global, regional and country level gender and EiE experts and other stakeholders.

The toolkit is based on internationally recognised minimum standards and guidelines and is closely aligned with the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) Gender Handbook, the INEE Minimum Standards for Education and the INEE Guidance Note on Gender.
