 awful lot of BIG BUT DISCONNECTED ideas circulating as well as 3 zooms on india i have participated in which left me more confused than ever on whats happening locally- some questions

1 have you heard of these GFEL people in mail below- it seems the organisers are mainly from india- their first summit was in dubai last year - short video enclosed their next one in las vegas december - i am struggling where, when will the first live summit happen- i would love to know what becomes vienna first summit 

2 i have been to several soros sponsored zooms- there is no consistency between his partners on who they see as their expert circle in india- the economist see different people than the practice experts in different goals - anna mentioned she might know someone on his financial fund side who represents india context- happy to share the different india experts i have come across in soris sponsored zooms- i do think what matters is who the head of central european university knows- do you already know michael ignatieff PRES CEU  1  - i am not sure if he is in vienna or still in budapest

3 health obviously matters locally all over the world- i would like to know if the two of you already have your preferred bottom up health connector in india who is that- if not how do we work out if the batra family fit what you need

4 do you know the people at global salzburg- 4 weeks ago their co-sponsorship of the first wise-qatar virtual summit put them in the middle of all 8 years of wise connections- they claimed they will be hosting part 2 zoom in about 5 weeks

5 my understanding though i am sure you know more is ban ki moon has at least 3 interests- a youth world citizen curriculum co-led by former president of austria; climate adaptability research partners; what would have been connections of olympics and other sorts of arts/fashion heroes- are you connected with any of the 3 different teams each of these foci gravitate around him  - what seems critical is will any of these 3 curricula intersect with what vienna students at ceu do or not?

-almost each week there is new madness in usa- i cant work out which national leader does modi believe he needs most - if he is depending on trump then the chaos is going to keep multiplying to november- trump is hiding real data from american peoples - and he has no consistency in his own global leadership partners- if both modi and trump have no consistency its going to be very hard to help peoples in india or in usa til end of year- hopefully austria and eg switzerland will turn out to be consistent in moving climate health and other sdgs along- a huge black hole - i havent yet found out if the un has plan b - ie if the 75th annual get together cant happen in new york september- will they zoom or will guterres just keep everything close to his chest- he knows anything important he tries to put on world sage trump will snipe down-in effect we look like losing at least 2 years on sdgs at a time when we had just discovered there was no real finance of them capable of being on time- the virus has put at least some goals back another 5 years unless by a miracle some countries start transfering their budgets for arms to budgets for health
