Started by Gale Shea · Last post by chris macrae (29 minutes ago)

Great to see that week 2 lecture 3 minute 7 has a chunky video from the summit - UN's Jan Eliasson on Toilets and Sanitation
A student networked sanitation solution "Sanitation Creations"  took 2nd place in the Muhammad Yunus North Carolina competition. This pleased Yunus a lot has its not as well know as it should be that to get a loan from Grameen microcredit in Bangladesh village families had to commit to developing a pit latrine. If you do know student networks taking up the Sanitation challenge - as Jan said the least successfully progressed of the millennium goals - we'd love to help to link together sanitation networks as 20000 youth demonstrate what they can do to Yunus and ted Turner and Jimmy Carter and Nobel laureates Atlanta Nov 2015

.

Great 12 minute sequence near start of video 4 week 2. The World Hunger Program speaker mentioned idea of teaming up with mastercard foundation to provide digital cash for school meals  I think this is one of the faster scaling ideas in end hunger toolkit -here are some search items

.video 6 -6min 18 sec to end has summit talk and then interview of JIm Kim head of the world bank- Jim invites us all to unite around a movement to end poverty by 2030; the new observation is there will be no peace unless we do end poverty; Our notes on how Jim is mobilising youth summits to network this most exciting and collaborative human race are here

Turn Down the Heat: Why a 4°C Warmer World Must be Avoided

It is now clear that without action on climate change, the world may become 4°C warmer by the end of this century. Such an increase would threaten to roll back decades of development progress; thus, we are at a ‘make it or break it’ point in time. This course presents the most recent scientific evidence, as well as some of the opportunities for urgent action.


About the Course

Under current pledges and commitments, the world is likely to reach 4°C degree warming by the end of the century and 2°C warming as early as 2040. This MOOC brings together renowned scientists to provide a synthesis of the most recent scientific evidence and presents an analysis of likely impacts and risks, with a focus on developing countries. It chronicles already observed changes in the climate system and their impacts, through the increase in carbon dioxide emissions, corresponding temperature increases and melting of glaciers and sea ice, and changes in precipitation patterns. This course also offers projections for the 21st century for droughts, heat waves and sea-level rise, with implications for food and water security, as well as possible impacts on agriculture, water availability, ecosystems and human health.

This MOOC presents an analysis of the likely impacts of a 4°C warming trajectory and stresses the need for decision makers and communities to take a serious look at their adaptation choices, while also signaling the urgency for mitigation action. Participants will also be introduced to the risks of triggering non-linearity, and tipping elements, such as the disintegration of the West Antarctic ice sheet and large-scale Amazon dieback. The course ends with a discussion of the main policy choices needed to prevent warming above 2°C.

Course Syllabus

Overview
This overview presents the main topics this course will cover, and provides a summary of the key impacts and challenges of a 4°C warmer world.

Week 1: Observed Climate Changes and Impacts: Hundreds of Thousands of Years to Now
This module outlines the historical observed changes in the climate system leading up to the present day and the impacts that can now be attributed to human-induced climate change. It examines the rise of greenhouse gas emissions since preindustrial times, while explaining the link between CO2 concentrations and the rising global mean temperature, ocean heat storage and sea-level rise, as well as uncertainties in the scientific evidence. It also describes the trends of increasing loss of ice in Greenland and Antarctica, increasing loss of Arctic sea ice, melting mountain glaciers, increased heat waves and extreme temperatures, and drought and aridity trends.

Week 2: Possible 21st Century Climates
This module provides an overview of the projected changes in climate leading up to the end of the 21st century. It describes the likelihood of a 4°C warmer world by 2100 AD and enables a deeper understanding of various climate models with different projections and key areas of uncertainty. It also reviews possible responses from natural systems, explaining how the projected climatic changes from 2°C to 4°C warming could result in sea-level rise, heat waves and extreme temperatures, and ocean acidification.

Week 3: Life in a 4°C Warmer World
a) Impacts Across Key Human Support Systems
This module presents an overview of current and projected climate impacts across key human support systems, such as agriculture and food production, water resources, ecosystems and biodiversity, and human health. Each of these human support systems will be negatively impacted by climate change under a 4°C warming scenario, resulting in adverse consequences for development, such as: diminishing crop yields, which threaten food production and human health; loss of biodiversity; the spread of vector-borne diseases; and water scarcity.

b) Risks of Large-Scale and Disruptive Changes in the Climate System
This module brings together information from earlier modules, by considering how the impacts of, risks from and vulnerabilities to climate change may scale with increasing levels of CO2 concentrations and global mean warming. It highlights the risks of nonlinear and cascading impacts and the risk of crossing critical thresholds for nonlinear tipping elements of the Earth system, which could dramatically increase vulnerability to climate change and impose multiple stresses on development.

Week 4: What Can We Do About It? The Choice Is in Your Hands (Discussion)
After having outlined the scientific evidence in previous modules, this final module goes beyond the Turn Down the Heat report and provides a discussion on what mitigation and adaptation action is needed to help avoid a 4°C world, while also decreasing vulnerability to climate change impacts and building climate resilience. Since no single solution exists, this module will share perspectives from a range of actors on a range of key policy measures and climate actions. Track 1 (for the general public) will showcase how different lifestyles may affect changes in the climate and explore everyday choices that can help mitigate climate change and decrease vulnerability to its impacts. Track 2 (for policymakers) invites leaders from various countries, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and civil society to exchange ideas and examples of effective policies and actions that can help in the transition towards a low-emissions and climate-resilient development path.

Depending on your particular interest, you can choose to participate in one of two tracks as an optional activity.
  • Track 1: Climate Champion
  • Track 2: Policy and Leadership

Track 1 Track 2
Target Audience The ‘Climate Champion’ track is suitable for anyone with an interest in climate change, and provides more insight into the science behind climate change and opportunities to further expand your knowledge of key areas. The ‘Policy and Leadership’ track involves connecting with others in similar positions (e.g., policymakers, provincial and national government personnel, representatives of civil society, academia) around the world, and developing new networks of practice around climate change issues.
Common objective To understand observed changes in the climate system, their causes and immediate consequences, and projected medium- to long-term impacts on development
Track-specific objectives To describe the climate context under the current level of 0.8° warming and recognize how projected changes in climate (under 2°C to 4°C warming) could affect such sectors as agriculture, water resources, ecosystems and health

To realize how your lifestyle contributes to changes in the climate system and outline the actions you can take to reduce your climate impact or carbon footprint
To critically interpret different climate projections and recognize how these changes in climate (under 2°C to 4°C warming as opposed to a current warming level of 0.8°C) could affect such sectors as agriculture, water resources, ecosystems and human health

To discuss and distinguish between suitable policy options that countries/organizations need to take to help mitigate and adapt to climate change
Assignments
  • Assignments focus on facilitating a basic understanding of the science.
  • You will learn how to apply the knowledge you have gained to your everyday lives.
  • Assignments focus mostly on policy intervention for sectors that need urgent climate action, and connecting with others in similar positions.
  • You will be able to apply the knowledge you have gained to your specific country and policy context.

Youth Summit 2013: Development Case Competition Winners



*

*

The 2013 Youth Summit featured a Development Case Competition that received over 500 entries from young people all over the world. All submissions were evaluated by the 2013 Youth Summit organizing committee and a panel of eminent development professionals and case sponsors. This page lists the winners and the runners-up for each of the four cases of the 2013 Youth Summit Development Case Competition.


Winning Teams & Abstracts
Case Study A: Strengthening Micro-Entrepreneurship for Disadvantaged Youth
Team Name: Empower
Team Members: Alice Cassin, George Hart, Anoud Allouzi and Pauline LewisEmpower is a six-week, hands-on course in applied entrepreneurship that targets Moroccan youth who are interested in building or starting their own businesses. The program will be run in partnership with the Moroccan Ministry of Youth and Sport, local community centers, and business leaders. Empower is particularly geared toward supporting young entrepreneurs working in the ICT field, as well as underrepresented groups in the Moroccan business community, such as women and the undereducated. Launched in Rabat, the pilot program will connect budding entrepreneurs with local business owners as they launch or strengthen their businesses. Through instructor-based and peer-to-peer teaching and ongoing coaching, the program will give young entrepreneurs the tools and support to build profitable businesses. By blending new and established ICT technology, Empower is able to deliver innovative and scalable training at very low cost, maximizing the value of program funding. In the classroom, students have access to cutting-edge entrepreneurship content from across the web, tailored to their local needs. Outside the classroom, in-person and SMS coaching provide valuable support to students in need of additional support and serves as a long-term resource for students even after their Empower experience ends.
Case Study B: A Better Financial Product for Young Entrepreneurs’ Micro and Small Enterprises
Winner: Patrick OldenThe proposed solution is a scheme where young entrepreneurs, directed by a non-profit organization (NPO) are grouped into a number of “micro-cooperatives” in the same market niche and supplied with materials and equipment. Profits generated by each cooperative are pooled and saved (audits are carried out to ensure that profits are reported correctly and novel approaches are taken to collecting the profits). Once the total savings amount to the cost of the initial startup capital for one cooperative, a new one is created in the same or a complementary niche. The technical skills are transmitted to the new entrepreneurs by one of the original cooperatives with soft skills and mentoring delivered by the NPO. Once an individual cooperative has contributed to the pooled savings, a total equal to the initial startup capital given to it, it no longer has any training obligations and assumes control of its profits. This scheme makes consumption smoothing impossible (as startup materials are purchased by the NPO), incentivizes the young entrepreneurs to work hard in pursuit of gaining access to their profits, and has an inbuilt expansionary mechanism in the creation of new cooperatives from the profits of the old. It also creates many links between the cooperatives (through auditing and skills transmission), thus promoting the cohesiveness necessary to fulfill sustainable and growth-promoting contracts with aggregators.
Case Study C: Reverse Engineering, Youth Entrepreneurship Driving Education
Team Name: TechnoIsland
Team Members: Salem Kosemani and Ogunlola FolajimiThe project, BRAINSPARK, converts some of the large amount of time spent by youths on the internet to focusing on their primary education; improving the current state of primary education in Sub-Saharan Africa, furthermore improving their current educational level and inter-relationships between youths around the Sub-Saharan Africa region, by providing a cloud-based platform. BRAINSPARK provides tools to allow young people to communicate with each other; know their cultures, beliefs, tradition, economy, finance, education and other important things about their countries, hereby bringing about economic development, reduction in juvenile delinquencies in Sub-Saharan Africa. It rewards the brilliant efforts of the users and motivates others to join the race to attain more knowledge. The target audiences of this service are students within the range of 9–20 years, who have attained any form of education and can read. What makes this product innovative is the fact that it promises to make learning fun, allowing students to test each other’s weakness and strengths, using BRAINSPARK’s useful suggestions and advice.
Case Study D: Millennial Communications for Inclusive City Planning
Team Name: VozPisco
Team Members: Adriana Young and Adam WhiteResilience is a communications asset. Cities can become more resilient when they provide intuitive and inclusive ways to directly engage citizen voices. In the aftermath of the 2007 earthquake, the City of Pisco continues to face challenges that include fragmented inter-district communications, shifting demographics and a troubled track record delivering urban development projects. The VozPisco project will address these conditions by creating a multi-media communication and feedback strategy to amplify citizen engagement and government transparency in the urban planning process. VozPisco will offer three distinct civic communication components: (1) an SMS survey and engagement platform that will be free and accessible for any basic mobile phone; (2) a weekly radio program hosted by community and youth leaders to share results from SMS surveys, interview government officials and private developers, and disseminate information on disaster preparedness; and (3) a public event series that will feature the projection of citizen SMS comments onto surrounding buildings to spark discussion and increase visibility of public feedback. VozPisco combines best practices in appropriate mobile technology and community building, offering a hybrid communication system with built-in accountability and feedback loops. Rather than proposing a discrete outreach project, VozPisco is a lightweight layer to amplify and innovate on existing efforts by government and civil society actors. To reach target demographic groups – including community advocates, local businesses and youth leaders – VozPisco will identify a representative leadership group to advise on outreach strategies, lead radio programming and overall, ensure that programming matches the needs and interests of local communities.

Today, young people are three times more likely to be unemployed than adults and over 75 million youth globally are currently looking for work. The International Labour Organisation warns of a “scarred” generation of young workers facing a dangerous mix of high unemployment, increased inactivity and precarious work in developed countries, as well as high working poverty in the development world. Consequently, the youth agenda is a global priority.
Inspired by World Bank President Jim Kim’s belief that youth play a crucial role in the global development agenda, the global Youth Summit (YS) was initiated by the Bank’s young professionals to enable youth around the world and address youth-related challenges.
