i was privileged to attend the first international summit moon jaein spoke at
if i was korean i would happily bet every plan of my life on the decency of this leader

its good to see that after korea has had more than its fair share of historical messes distracting the nation from its best contributions to humanity, todays elections appear to confirm that koreans value trust leadership in the face of actual crises ie corona

April 15 2020, 4:41 AM April 16 2020, 1:38 PM (Bloomberg) -- South Korean President Moon Jae-in’s ruling coalition scored the largest parliamentary election victory since the end of military-backed rule more than three decades ago, signaling to global leaders that a strong pandemic response can win votes.

will the poorest oldest world citizens survive corona?

you cant social distance in a slum- apart from communities with lots of elders, poorest communities in developing world have no answers to corona unless eg the g7 helps now instead of just emitting nationalist propaganda the way Dismal Capitals led by washington pr lobbyists do- big vested interests are totally blind to ordinary peoples local sustainability challenges - why they werent jailed after 2008 subprime remains the most fatal media and financial falsehood -it impacts any main street of the homeless, as well as everywhere the billion poorest people live in cities which by defintion have beed designed to be where distance between humans is minimised

help us report what to learn from first incidences of corona war on poor citizens - elmhurst queens ny, new orleans, india, africa, madrid slums

nb the twist in much of italy, france , spain is elders retired to idyllic vilages which are also escape homes of rich kids- usually for summer vacations but in this case kids rushed to the villages to escapte scary corona capital cities only to infect weakest eldes in places far from city hospitals- the mixture of dumb media and politicians behind the curve of an infection that can multiply 30 fold in 12 days may be understandable the first time but isnt each time it repeats- this shows that poiticians who cant learn across boderes will be aiding the virus kill the people

i realise there is a lot going on.emanuel before leave for seoul and tokyo at weekend may i ask that everywhere you link you search for people who want to share green engineering news- 

i gave you my jeju contacts-aiib 2917
it seems a long time ago but back in june 2017 aiib jeju launched green big bang as what it wanted to connect everywhere asian infrastructure banking is connected- aiib convened in luxembourg 2019 and mumbai 2018- 

 brits at the moral heart of aiib are gordon browns main civil servant when he was pm at lse nick stern and sir danny alexander in beijing Danny Alexander (@dannyalexander) | Twitter

#ICYMI We are inviting comments and suggestions on the scope, content and implementation of the AIIB Environmental and Social Framework (ESF). This follows the commitment made when we began operations in 2016 to review the ESF after a three-year period.

- aiib's president jin celebrates great literature- his daughter at lse is her generations smartest new economy connector- ccg is easily able to connect these people and english speaking broadcasters at cgtn - sors and schwarzman scholars can form a subnetwork celebrating this only route to engineers contributing to sdgs  

i am wondering if soros vienna university sent out invitations to link green engineering clubs and eg tesla chais as one of austrian empires most famous engineers which companies and place hubs would it aim to gravitate or an adam smith chair of green engineering

i assume that green engineering is most likely to be valued by those with the deming mindset - ie tokyo-seoul

i am also heartened by tatas approach-see footnote but if we were to start ranking engineering companies by green engineering capability i have no idea which corporate ecosystems/supply chains rank top

we have actually gone backwards  starting 2020s versus starting 2000s in media coverage of greening whole industry supply chains

i remember ck prahalad and ray andersen inviting industries to join i remapping whole supply chains to be carbon zero the way rau andersen led with carpet tiling- he started in 1994 and explained changing a whole supply chain took 10 years of relentless leadership anderson - Google Search

vienna has a great location to look east to see who really has critical mass to green engineering industry sectors

As part of Tata Motors’ theme for Auto Expo 2020, which is building a sustainable future through aspirational, innovative mobility solutions in India, the company unveiled Ultra T.7 Electric, India’s first intermediate commercial electric truck.
The Ultra T.7 Electric is the latest offering from Tata Motors in the ILCV segment under the vehicle range of Ultra Platform. “It is developed for Indian roads, redefining the transportation industry leveraging enhanced technologies, blending ideally both technology and economy of operations,” said the company.
The Ultra T.7 Electric can be fully charged in around two hours using a DC fast charger. It has been designed to address the specific needs of the evolving Hub & Spoke model of goods distribution.
The truck would deliver faster turnaround time, higher payload capacity, easier maneuverability delivered through a narrow aerodynamic cabin and sharp turning circle radius (6.95 mt). “Our EV portfolio is in line with India’s vision to promote clean and green vehicles,” said the company.
Additionally, the Tata Group is also looking at other innovative solutions in people and goods transport and it is planning to make electric cars and batteries, set up charging stations and build a battery recycling plant to solidify an EV ecosystem.
Tata Motors, Tata Chemicals, Tata Power and Tata Croma are reportedly pooling resources and expertise to build an electric vehicle ecosystem. The announcement of the plans came at the recent launch of Tata Motors’ Nexon EV.
Tata Power plans to set up 650 charging stations in more than 20 major Indian cities over the next year. The company has set up 100 charging stations to date. All stations will support fast charging and will be linked to a mobile application developed by Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) for payments and to check availability.
Other than Tata Group, many automotive players have lately been upping their EV game. South Korean automobile company Hyundai is working on bringing a new mass-market electric vehicle (EV) to the Indian market within the 2-3 years. Hyundai had earlier announced to invest $17 Bn over the next six years on new technologies to speed the switchover to electric and autonomous vehicles.
German luxury carmaker Audi has said that it will be bringing its e-Tron premium electric SUV later this year to India. Audi India is currently focussing on training manpower and ensuring readiness for the components and spare parts for EVs.
The Auto Expo 2020 also saw numerous new electric vehicles. MG Motor unveiled its all-new electric sports utility vehicle called the ‘Marvel X, Mahindra showcased its first compact electric SUV called eKUV100 and Maruti Suzuki announced its electric mobility plans for the future at the expo.
The event will also be witnessing the presence of over 18 startups, including Okinawa Autotech, Devit Motors, eVERVE Motors and ONB technologies and Evolet India among others.
