If we are going to change the world in ways that empower every human being to make a difference, then it seems pretty certain that social entrepreneurs and their networks will be there to help and guide us. Uniquely, this is an method that has emerged from the grassroots of all the world's regions criss-crossing cultures and other borders - with Bangladesh contributing two of the world's currently most valued social entrepreneurial changes - microfinance 1 2 3 and the world's largest citizen organisation 1 2 3 . If there is any way we can help people in Pakistan explore where social entrepreneurs have already discovered ways of improving humanity's lot in many of the most challenging arenas of life on this earth, please do tell us.

Trusting that KM Pakistan will learn from non-transparency of KM West

The future of the world - and the human race - if there is to be one after century 21 - depends on governing global sectors : collaboratively, transparently and sustainably (map the future's compound exponentials simply enough for all the world to hold communal debates to our open hearts contents)

The first test case of collaborating in humanity will be water worldwide as a human right. Because cleanwater is the number 1 ingredient of life as well as health, and because water waves are coulpled with other environmental waves of nature's evolutionary power, which at a global level of species promtion and extinction will always be more determinant than what beings race to do.

For a year between 2002 and 2003 the European Union, through its KM portal knowledgeboard.com encouraged a network of over 100 knowledge angles to open space. They did this paying their own way to dialogues in London, Berlin and Luxembourg. Though knowedleg economics were integrated into tese debates it was also agreed that a thriving community of not for profit cases and explorations into ways to narrow global divides was the way to ensure that knowledgeboard sustained the most open of professional dialogues. Over a thousand of man days were volunteered by this the knowledge angels network who were encouraged to tender for minimal funds needed so that thousands of knowledge angels could host meetings all round Europe in small cafes as well as larger open spaces. Then their proposal was not only turned down by Brussels but the area in the KB portal where they had been encouraged to co-edit news was prevented from starting new discussion threads.

So before knowledge angels (a name the EU coined for transparent and meta-professional networking in 2002) were destroyed by apparently frightened bureaucrats (or self-centred "piecemeal expert" academics lobbying) the European Union from 2003 on, we started some far reaching debates on sustaining water and life. We have transferred extracts of these here for posterity or as long as google's blogger permits us to propagate this do no evil wave.
