1 if our friends can identify exactly who in rome is most interested in refugees- RANGA what is the first question yazmi as world number 1 refugee livelihood channel wants asked ? is ot who has budgets or can influence budget decision-makers if they believe in idea that every refugee should have a tablet - i need very simple question because every conversation needs sales pitch in italian and spanish

possible leads since bernardo was happy to nominate samara as a premio sciacca prizewinner , amy already knows the italian youth ambassador for thie network- in fact our whole central park south bootcamp  met him the day when flu prevented you from joining in- so once he understands the question we can also present that to central park south and they can tell us who in un might be interested - they have unhabitat people om secondment in geneva which i believe is where UNHCR is

as well as premio sciacca the main conclusion of last months nobel peace summit organised by rome was we call on governments to all transfer budgets to refugees- so we can work out how to talk to roman people there- the peace laureate summit share headquarters with green club of rome- amys current internship is with the leading green tv channel -at minimum  we can start up a conscious capitalism rome chapter and get them hosting meeting on green and refugee- and share ideas with conscious capitalosm dc

rome also has all un food agencies- while I am not sure how they fit in to your 2 main channels i can ask rome to start thinking about that

2 can we have this yazmi dialogue between silver spring and dubai specifically on what tricks we know about empowered language teaching for immigrants-
king and amy know the american world's leading expert in language empowering refugees Zara

I assume we should show any yazmi best features that can be used for language teaching in designing fast way to speak germa- since amy youth world's leading ex\pert in fast learning german

for example are we saying that we can quickly develop 20 hours of audio on speaking german- which  anyone with tablet could both practice live but also have programmed on to the refugee tablet once they got out of range or could web download once they are in germany

while you are live in range of yazmi language teaching are there any special smart learning tricks dubai already uses in maximing your medium

3 amys open space friends are maximally connecting with brooklyns first exchange project in africa which goes live january 28 in nairobi- we intend to have helped the nairobi team so  that they introduce us to everyone relevant in ihub and ushahidi crowdmapping

these could raise 2 questions: how do we do a first hackathon between yazmni silver spring and dubai and all africa networks of ihub i imagone we particularly want to ask ihub lenya who are their main partner hubs in addis- and do they already have projects that are mainly invested in by chinese  -also when noah asks what is a hackathon - thiis is a seminal bookmark winners of the first hackathon for refugees
including inner: Safegees
Safegees is a mobile and web application that allows refugees to privately and, in a secure manner, geolocate people in their contact network. The app also gives you ‘points of interest’ tailored to refugees; these points of interest are provided by (vetted) NGOs working on the ground, who can upload the information through a web form. There is a strong emphasis on ensuring all data is secure. The app needs internet connection for some functions, but once basic information is loaded on your phone, it can also work offline. Organisations could also have access to anonymised data on the movement of users registered in the app as a way of seeing how the flow of refugees is changing on a minute-by-minute basis.The winners received two all expenses paid tickets to the Build Peace 2016 conference in Zurich.
while these may seem loke small ideas the point has always been why dont elearning and hackathons run continuously - the answer because existing education systems are disconnected with job creation -hubworld for teenagers intends to replace schools homework completely if need be -chat to jonathan about that
how do we research what crowdmapping projects coordinated with kenyas software movement (africa's leading open source language) are already being done with refugees

the point to note is that kenya is often called africas silicon valley precisely because usahahidi and ihub alumni are in the middle of everything african coders for africa build and of course they pull in google afriica where necessary - at one time one of the fobnders of ihub was headhunted to lead strategy for google africa -there's a very small group of africans who have seen almost every mobile leapfrogging - i think amy and brookyns friends jose and erasmus can help identify these- the other person who can especially since all cashless banking models from mpesa on are coded by the same group is naila- now i am not uptodate on how Yazmi ruto  partnership with nao;a goes - but the point is once we have some of the answers to this mail a joint approach to naila needs to be made combing kings interests, your interests and coders interests including kiehl and tross (including her remit all across the latin and central  americas)

4 I am spending the last week of january at MIT on a project led by our friend  John Kiehl who is also in the middle of the michael moore movie and most relevant un sustaibability goal media - I am not quite sure what the question to ask wizards of apps is - is it just what apps can you imagine refugees need most ; or is it how do we train refugees to be coders of apps of what

4a if we can get some foot in door at mit then brooklyns main speaker in march has access to linking in all west coast coders around berkeley

and all of 4 can connect with app wizards in ihub

=of course you may have ideas of a different sequence of questions that these various groups can start linking in with each other- what i need to know dr ranga is if you still want to make priority presentations in new york to our 2 first brainstorming cluibs - at brooklyn led by amys best friend dean rolle; and at central park south hosted by amys friend dianne davies whose connections with the un are unlikely anyone elses

I actually need to talk to dean rolle tofay on some other issues -consequently urgency in sending this mail

cheers chris
