The key knowledge needed to reach the Sustainable Development Goals is locked in proprietary systems. Governments and civil society around the world need to push for a shift to Open Source systems and technologies if we want to overcome the global division of rich and poor, of south and north and those who have power, and those who don’t.

at the end of the and the and point the heat and
and the a bit object not this this
morning everybody and I know it's hot so early in the morning but I'm very happy about everybody you who's your who's following us
and at the screen the toll more summer else and we would like to talk today about open source open Dr. openness in general we used to use if you're working trying to improve the life of so many people all over the world and end-of-year more more trying to use digital solutions to do this and beauty in our service delivery for the people or organizing ourselves and headquarters in an so many decentralized locations so this is all very fine and we did some good progress but the issue of openness and how to how to deal with open . open source is still a challenge for us is still an open question and here of course to learn from uh the leaders you will see in in a few minutes here at this stage because they know very well how to deal with the issue they have good examples we have also some good examples but you're not yet sure and how to use the principle you know principle for Digital development
for the success of this out and this is something that is not cost us and how to really
deal with the challenge of openness and the chances of all this this is what we would like to do this morning together with you and that's why I'm very happy to have you here and I'm really curious and looking for what to the discussion we have thank you very much again few
but this year place users GGD laws and change of this book with all pore
structures now we have 2 great examples brought you by men outcome of are moderate model and Carolyn flowery will be the moderation were writer for the next panel and about bringing free Internet to everybody and making materials source please welcome that I walk about my daily life model and column fluorine and the sort of thing and it was at a new life due morning everyone my
name is carol glory and really it's the thing I'm this panel and said the way that we're going to run the next hours sell you the introduction to the main themes colleague here on stage and then give you a bit of background about why this panel was put together in the 1st place and and then go into that as a question in this ad questions certainly buyers like chats between the 3 of us and then open it up to questions for all of you today to get engaged to start thinking about different there's questions eyes as they come along and annoyances for and so 1st off
just want to say that I really think it's you how many of you know in like this is the 1st time in my career actually the love I have I have had a hand in hand with
the rest of the world that you have here and to my right is man
in common and she is senior policy at the World Wide Web Web conditions and the voice behind the chance of all the people all of the internet all of the time and she's
1 of the key advocates for open to hand out any of the
crime and money and is actually in the back of the hand and the African declaration and at the end of the show that
condition in a global partnership for sustainable development the
into mainland is dismally in the end user partner material with them and is 1 of Brazil's young changemakers advocating this is the change
in so this doing the same thing here in my hand and the the 3 of us from the library children end of the year of products and services in the so you can hang think on consumer on same
level before we get into it in the fire and
I have a I want to meet
in way which is have mentioned in terms of the principles additional and area I think indignities myself I work with the digital impacted by an ejective collected in and 1 of the things that we really focused on Diamond is promoting its during the principles that it's still knowledge which he behind analysis of naturalistic principle and the 1 that will be discussing today is around the use of that open standards open source open innovation and if labels around openness and the principles are created and in 2014 by donor institutions in implementing institutions to understand how to implement digital development programs in emerging markets and more active in
practical and efficient way and I'm really played into the into 1 of the principles and had
a substantive conversation around how we can continue to the east and this is the way it and on the next slide and of the
and then it is what get here you have
the background and this is a this is a frame work station in thinking
about the and how we can achieve a sustainable development goes the entities and selling them back and monitoring the idea of that familiar with with the of the just wanted to give you a bit of background around but they are and so 1 of the things to point it follow-up to the Millennium Development Goals which ran between 2000 and 2015 and think global targets for alleviating poverty and over the 15 years that a number of people living in poverty with hats and there's still a lot of work to be done with still a billion people living under a dollar 25 cents so what we did in this single development was different because they're more interested in ways that the largest consultative process to put together the 17 balls in and their 169 indicators detonated achievement into these goals but they're not just for emerging markets and developing countries if all countries and their the responsibility of all countries and is not mandate that means you have to do this people are optimal to it but we want to think about it from the political economic social cultural perspective and so 1 of the things that will be discussing is how to relates to the achievement of the deities so just 1 at a level that the evaluation of the page as we go into our conversation and the 1st 1 it is an ecologist you need to keep an eye out last
time just have around about Intel's a over there doing
and what topics you really passionate about it anyway knowledge onto their pictures they have their own it
and not in the last year of the presentational is equally as passionate
about so start with limited to give us a bit
about thanks Cotton had over 1 this
came out I freedom stage so that the and bear as if someone this on how and say hello to those in the panels will following online because that is the essence of being here of personally always introduce myself as something now I come from the intended I still do I don't think things on a daily basis the 1st is to hold down Alt the 2nd is to build radius and the Fed has to create the quality that's all I do for a living the 1st thing is to board on the walls and I think that everyone in only has a few a sense of what it means when you pull down the walls you need to build bridges and when you build bridges you need to make sure that everyone has access and I work with the World Wide Web Foundation which is that's foundation built around the ideals of certain then as lead was
started the protocol that is used across the world wide web and if you forget everything I say today you need to remember 1 thing that 2 then leases this is for everyone
this is for everyone so we are talking about open source openness and technology openness and systems it is because our final aim is that this will be for everyone as they used to have common nicely and say you leave no 1 behind so on 1 hot with the leave no
1 behind on your departure from the this this for everyone those who had the same ideas so break down the walls built and bridges and ensure the quality
dolls added the use of the Web Foundation this the form I joining the Web Foundation I used to be part of the free software and open source foundation class we have wonderful what concessions would what used to be invented in those days is that analogy I say what what and business models to walk on open source platforms will walk on lending platforms will walk on making Africans maker leaving the fact that this
small around so all of this is what makes the
world go around if you hear that we're talking about like the way the way it is because it breaks down the walls it is because it builds great use it is because its final in these the quality a critique of so on this is not about software hardware it has about systemic ideologies all having
everyone be part of a change of having everyone can benefit from the change and of course having sustainable development if you hear me say that our final aim should be that all of the people should be free and be able to access all of the Internet all of the
time it is because it is and so all the we that we will eventually arrive at the point the leaves no 1 behind once again if you forget everything and said today do not forget that this is for and from what most people and you have
few aluminum in terms of
that where there is no wind and wave function so in the morning think
everyone to the following is here and so what I do basically is we work with our open innovation and open access information we need a back and resuming in a week I work with so we seriously believe that there is a huge amount of information and all we need to do is grant that everyone can access it not just to make it available that it put it in an easy language that everyone can understand but if we keep up writing in generating contains only for experts who can acquire
highly educated and can read and then translate that into their own benefit is to not make sense this is not the kind of knowledge we want to create and so we began at 10 years ago
developing materials that were open source so we were creating an new materials that could develop into new products that were didn't exist in the
market and the fact that everyone would ask as why don't you place of patent upon this materials because you're doing something no 1 else is doing and we know since the beginning we always said we don't wanna make it a pattern of it because we believe that this is public benefit this is a common goods
and if we don't understand that there is a common good that we are all together and is that we are part of the same society globally speaking it's not gonna make any sense of living in all in my area here if you're not here to share their life with everyone else
and so we started working with open innovation that when this was not carried of in Brazil out which then after developing a several materials it's scaled up into an open platform that collects materials and products that work for social and environmental environmental responsibility in that all
of the and that in that any 1 of you use so here I mean this is the the is in the 1st years of life and I 10 but most of the time
they lack information because it's that in capsule you know either on a very technical aspects are and it's heated so what we want to do is we want to unlock information and then for this platform we developed 6 and analysis right the members of the
loop from life cycle assessment of and you like human conditions for workers and not on a
very easy language so that people can self-assess their own products and consumers can go online and see so we connect these 2 and out we don't cite anything from that and because we understand that if you changing many then you create a lot you create a barrier and and this is it this is my passion for life is like make sure that knowledge is
available and accessible for everyone not just there but that you can actually access and understand and then in the
few instances in thinking about US
cities there there behind 3 there's 17 at these global rules that we're trying to achieve by the year 2030 and it's going to
happen here and there but in the end he would have this and they the things that
this can knows this positing is that openness and is is a way to achieve that and so would like to use and ask them to you in thinking about openness and what did that mean to you and and how does it apply how can
it help in the achievement of the state of so no 1st thanks obtained from I think most people here
adults underwear around in the year 2000 when we had the MDG's I think 1 of the things that was wrong with MDG's was because there was an idea that day that was listed there were developed countries rich countries and poor countries and there was a devout OK maybe a wall some people at court and all those back all summer some fine orders another fine and those what fine should be helping those when not find and I think finally we found that role and
the new concept around is the disease after that nobody should be left behind and these out global goals would prefer condemn with because it is for all of us everyone in so that actually on the conceptual for format that is a beginning now if you look at the bulls from
poverty from education from gender diet quality tool peaceful societies you find out that the the the the same findings of the digital principles actually applied we're looking at an engagement from all stakeholders we're looking at transparency when looking at accountability but I do recall that in the years that led up to the and to what was what finally became the global those balls 60 had a lot of problems because we actually wanted it to be good governance in those days and they're like no we we went around
amount and it came to peaceful societies but out of the what Foundation will believe that the that final aid of openness and technology of openness and data of access to information
is for us to have participation meaningful participation there is no way you can have meaningful participation in economic social cultural or any development if you don't have openness and data openness around systems
accountability in governance good management of racists you cannot
have it so we count openness we will not achieve the as teachers deep will not happen because it is not something that governments will report on we need portal engagement from all stakeholders that will be my 2nd point my effect points this out at what
about it is very easy to do the right thing of all the all the all the all kind of reported would you to
make to the boxes that is not sustainable development we need to look at people who
have reduced mobility is we need to look at people would in rural areas in Africa we need to look at we made had all
because we did the uh um I think over the day as we've talked about mission machine reading artificial intelligence and our glory did this grave don't have feelings OK and we may be given it we may be deceived into thinking that all is well when indeed well actually extending the did the gender divide OK we can say how what is the average and we what would average use and we report our we failed to
see that the rule what part of the society that this fall is getting poorer so we
might want to live the big chunk out of poverty and then the people what people actually getting poorer and would report that all is well back ensuring each be wrong to say the number of people who went to school without saying the number actually finished school because are the issues sold an impulse
70 I think the 1st or 2nd paragraph sorry I'm speaking you when language you will see that data
is very key so we and the weather condition is talking about openness and data we're not talking about statistics the official thing we're talking about the Internet the citizen the data that comes from everyone of was captures the following the data comes from everyone of course I show here that I will have come from as well as we 1st identify here
in here and I think question thinking about you know the Sustainable Development
Goals and and how this can be applied in thinking that this is the work that you do with them you from so the 1st thing
when we talk about openness and I think in the end we're talking about collaboration mean how can you covered how can you be open to work with others how can you be over and not just to share what you have to share your answer to share your thoughts to share information to share your knowledge but also to recognize that that other 1st and also has knowledge also has information also as something that is valuable for the community so there is obviously what we do like very traditionally that is open source so we basically open-source everything now we've designed our that we create in in our company and then when we think about reading the entities and if you
see the amount of money all industries and aid agencies are putting into sometimes solving the same problem and then we can end up multiplying investments because we are
not willing to cooperate because we talk a lot about cooperation we have a lot of coverage
agencies but only we really cooperating and we have the lake crossing
innovation and using that met that amount of money to invest on something else then we'll be looking at the local solutions or on sometimes a less recognized agents and understand that they're bringing something to the table this is being opened this is by looking at something that is different than what you're planning but that is as effective and recognizing that that can also be a solution so this is 1 thing I 1 thing we debated a lot less here in Brazil on event that I organize was grassroots innovations so the
topic was from tradition to transition there is a lot we talk about in transition economics or to create at transparent as society or to recognize and policies but then when you go on grassroots communities in Brazil inside any kind of favela which is basically it's slums and
everyone knows that we have that in result of very rich in knowledge but we don't we are not open to recognizing that has no it's and I think when we do that this sets behind on so many levels on only thing people like behind on trying to create a new phase 1 week you already have a local solution so far mainly over this is about being able to cooperate and to collaborate when an entity get into some
very specific concrete examples that the audience is thinking about you know we have this concept openness and open source open open data and where son of Sir with
men of letters what are some specific examples I at how and in how it's been effective and how we can sort of use those lessons
to me and I can see 2 examples 1 is a big scale of an also
and 1 is small-scale small-scale and innovations and so on and on if everyone here knows but a few years ago Brazil took uh very political um decision
of breaking the h medications patterns and back then that was a huge movements and the government had to face a lot of international who barriers are walls out but they
did so because back then and we have had a considerable amount of people who need that kind of medication Brazil and being what is internationally consider a developing country even 0 I don't agree with that kind of label and I think we should move beyond that kind of statement people wouldn't be able to afford having to pay out for that the patterns of
international medication so the government broke and those patterns and then because of that and they were able to afford the DVD for free for the population so we now have uh anyone in Brazil if you have a you can go
to the to the the public health center and that get the exam if you prove you have that you receive the makers of a free this ends up an epidemic this a makes people live longer this makes people live with better quality of life so itself so many issues and if it's my personal belief is is if something is far uh it's minute I for your life or my ideal place at that right until a conference at least so this would be 1 example and the example I can give you a is at our company would develop the material that was made out of them maintenance-free leftovers from Brazil and a lot of banana plantations and now when you take the banana out and that whole chunk dies and it goes ways with about the material and because we made open source we transferred all the technology to a collective of a woman working on rural areas and now they can generate their own income which not only takes people out of poverty but also empowers women and take them out of an endangered the situations with men because it was a we have a lot of violence like a woman violence so because it's something as ridiculous as a material we could have a patent but it's
something that creates a much bigger come India in nanoform you work around the open data and open internet where
some examples that you've seen that the application of openness and how it's been transformative um last 2
weeks we launched open ownership got all open water should not
fall biology you want to take enough it's a database of companies and wants that will benefit from this from at a very simple way for everyone to check up on who benefits from a company I think that some am the the acknowledgements that's a and I'm not papers have received have shown us that something like the old 1 beneficial registry is very important for all suppose the war so I think you need to check that properties of 1 on a she got all our G and it about 1 we will be launching the day this year's edition of the Open Data
barometer the Open Data parameter space and is this the the
across all that the 2 countries of the war Dec establishes how old were missing data is actually make impact with a lot of stories I can summarize all of them so watch out for Open Data parameter and and share share the lessons share the stories I'm originally Nigeria and if there's something that people in the media think major raise fall it is corruption and the present government has taken on I stepped into curbing corruption but no corruption is a human issue it's not a technology issue when you come through this door um Abbott at the
information desk you will see technology is the and some of what was the question of OK so it's not all the time the hardware and software solves problems sometimes most times solutions come from human beings and so that makes a random event is
understood that in matters of corruption we cannot go it alone on December last year be enacted a whistleblower policy for stolen government money and if you could give government information that they didn't have that will help them recover finances you could get between 2 .
5 and 5 % of the money as you know we had Nigerians we love many hasn't played out and I said last
man major has recall that about 300 million in cash and in bank accounts in Nigeria we haven't even started talking about money is that outside of major and these are family members desire of colleagues school call or will go and get that information and that money has been recovered in Nigeria for Nigeria by Jevons what all that kind of engagement are you looking for so my point to this um
actually go forward we need to build trust Eve there is something we get from opening up data
from popping up information for opening up governance systems it is that we build trust between
dolls who government and those who government and I think that um if I might pause here this is
Berlin and it is important that we notice what is going on around the world the
way that it is in the u was with ideas and France with a in Africa the people are getting tired of age old systems we're getting tired of establishment whatever that means and we want openness we don't really care where that a president communicates through tweets all Facebook of 5 now old Snapchat's because he needs to communicate with the people so if you want to be in the proprietary old ICT systems we are going to be losing out on trust webbing to losing out on
citizen engagement was going to be losing out on a global governance issues so that will be the column making yet
everyone is forced to sit back and ask
ourselves do how long last if I use the proprietary proprietary mind-set it's not last that long anymore the use of today don't even send e-mails anymore and these are the people who have to be dealing with going forward so if you think that governance systems is the 1 where we don't we're not accountable to citizens so we don't let them know how we take decisions with lock them out in a few days you will get up I read a communique and no but we care so we're look-in access
information that speaks to people when looking at opening its because that is the 1 way to build trust going
forward it's not because I'm a younger than many people but seriously asleep if you are over 16 should start thinking retirement thus water's going Yong those what is going digital gap capable young men and women who can't tip of leadership and once we create openness 1 will build the bridge is crossed aids ages would build the bridges across economic on buoyancy between the before and and the between the less rates and the rich between the older and the younger generation between technology and rural people up between all of these social strata been we're getting closer to the global people associations that by bacteria
so I'll just sitting in the back and that another type of time note taking this idea of what the government can do it in 1 of the things that you know as we were talking about this you know really wanted to system time for what is the contact where the next steps and so wanted to get into you know what do you think are some actions that Governments can take to incentivize and openness to incorporate openness Open Data Open information into their policies and also have the incentivize civic participation so what happens after the openness and how do we get the distance involved in and so I think everyone knows the
president's going through a major political changes and that it has a lot to do with being open ended with the transparent and I think the 1st thing governments need to need to do so to foster a more open society is to move fear of losing power because in the end up until now information still is power so we need anything 1st thing to do is change the mind-set OK we are no longer the in that era where you can concentrate that's so that would be my 1st call to action
loose fear of losing power letting go of power I understand that we're going to an error of decentralized power the next big thing it's going to be a bunch of small things so take it from there this would be 1 thing the next thing I've please for of our
experience in Brazil is about to make decisions available for people so 2 things happen in our
country and in Latin America and I think probably
in other countries in Africa 1 is is really hard to go after information there there are there in the internet but if it's not easily accessible it's asked this same as if it was not the Komodo lied to me don't make it look like something that's not make the
preparation of crazy is not that OK
so make decisions are easily accessible and easy language don't write on technical language let's abolished technical not abolish technical content because it's still important but my wife are lawyers writing so on the language that it was a used the centuries ago why we perpetuating that kind of stuff OK this would be 1 thing that thing is open space for direct civic participation the
evasive when the silly examples as a participatory budgeting
it's very it's very silly and it's been there for several decades but is still not a common practice but what happens is when you open some kind of space for people to jump in and even if they don't jump immediately a few of them will and over the years they're going to understand that they have a voice what we have now is there a representative crisis OK people no longer but see governments error as being the representatives and if think the way we're doing democracy now somehow has and and maybe have it has failed OK because of wait
we we're not being represented there anymore so in the end the open to listen Doc the people which you there so listen to what they're saying OK you don't don't hold on to that place as if it was yours because it's not year representing hundreds of thousands of others so this would be on a
model like the mental level and to foster civic participation but besides that I think it's high time that we started debating around public policies for openers and right for open
innovation for open-source acknowledges for open participation for Open Education for openness in general and this needs to become public policy things
right and know well they give you a chance to talk about but also just 1 it's
kind of throw out so an institutions in institutions like Jay-Z who heard from at the top of the panel
and you know that at the bilaterals and multilaterals where some of the actions that they can do thinking about them that means that they they find these words and programs around the world can I begin by saying and of minor faults for
bringing out so clearly of it and I want to do since we are here in Berlin there's a g 20 OK on recently that g 20 Digital economy ministers have a declaration and I think that that is something that is holding I I want to say thank you to the g 20 Digital Economy Minister select and OWL Lite PLSA that 1 asked I will have of the German government is to take these to the G train a somewhat
and make sure that do 20 heads of state and but this actually follow because we've had a lot of declarations that look for
nation trust and the German government will pull this 1 off and I ask for it I believe in governance and believe in government at high I don't I'm not an anarchist in a way I have respect for constituted government and thus is very important but what I think that
the dawn organizations and public countries need to do is to follow up on what my mother has said we
can't be fun being a governmental don't develop their countries I mean I think in Africa and I want In this developments in the environment for a long time you can't be putting taxpayers money is wonderful governments to underdeveloped the countries especially in Africa what we have found out is that when we have pure nominees did Don organizations what after the m money there wanted open a contract and stand that they want due due due process but only the argument is involved so many that come from natural resources money that come from taxation don't K and that is here the greater corruption so you you kind of
find double standard so with when when dealing with developing countries and my point here
would be that if you went to support sustainable development we need to make sure that transparency in governance becomes topmost on lives now that cannot be
done from only the government side we need citizens to the that we need a lot like that mother was seen as a right to
information should be extended to rights to data and have been the beer or new data barometer shows that no country in Africa has the TLE global completely open datasets available it does not exist so
we need to push government in that way because open next today is what we used
to call democracy yesterday having said that citizens need to be in power want to engage citizens need to be empowered to to ask questions citizens need to be empowered to express themselves there is that particular saying
that saying that says we can guarantee freedom of expression but not freedom after expression and the
MIT media right are still being the closed up spaces are still being close up our we're using the terracing to to to talk To authorize morass human rights abuses and I think that we need to look into this but finally uh I started would say my name is a name that had come from the internet they that they have access to broadband Internet connection is key in taking this 1 out of poverty because that is the toll that breaks down the walls that builds bridges and that can to a level ensure the quality of cross people across countries but what do we
see today we're looking at it Chen told in nice subtle corporate takeover of 1 or 1 big data on algorithms on artificial intelligence and if we are not careful esteemed then as it was explained in his
later life area in March we will get to the point that people board that would be a data and they become afraid of the
digital walled and you would draw with don't want that so what it that it takes to put on trust in government trust over the internet for all of us will great think you and I wanna
take this opportunity to open it up have 4 questions from the audience is well I think that we have the microphones splitting around
here sigh sigh hand over here go up 1st in and make me in front
of the that is standing still and then 2nd is here this low below it did not work in of those someone this from some lexical
from 2 years and so my question as implementing working for an implementing agency for development we have many decades of experience of building bridges the physical world and building infrastructure in the physical world and the water supply and all these things were when we go the us the clear when we want to build a bridge hire a construction company and so they will execute the job and then we need somebody to maintain the things we need to somebody to maintain the water
infrastructure or other infrastructures
cobalt in the digital world it's the same so you when you when you support some kind of open source project some and support the Wikimedia Foundation or 1 of the big organisations like like you OpenStreetMap or so you pay for the content creation or or open-source creation and and and you want to make sure that the sustainable so what advice and you get most of the aid agencies of 2 in which cases that we don't want to support only those big organizations look like Wikimedia Foundation what advice can you give us to us the how to find the right partners the right so to speak construction companies of the digital world to partner with in order to create a sustainable solution you have many examples of good or bad examples in which case it's sustainable and once more to how we take
in all the questions together all 1 after the other and here this year we know in the western straight selfish Cancer
Fund the Web Foundation have of it but was seriously um that the capacity for sustainability should be part of the original graph let me see if you don't know if you fail to planned and if you don't mind to succeed you have planning to feel so sustainability model should be part of indian the grants at all and like to say that um we need to step away from the beach cooperate and also look at what we have 1 in the next 5 to 10 yeas and in Africa we have used and I believe that
investing in the is a good thing and
how many of us come from the hub culture the open for put Hobbes all walking space is the makeup say that is a good place to invest because they are generally young people who have a long-term view sold inasmuch as respect the the people where sutime have global names actually believe that we should also look at the organizations that rule from the ground so the make up their spaces are 1 of those all in French according to you all of the make the harvest the coworking spaces they make
a fair the slabs elapsed is 1 week and that is via
innovation is actually coming from at the moment but because you mentioned Wikipedia how many of you remember encounter books they're very so
if we concatenative where we're on Wikipedia in those days we would be written as a global community today we're
talking about openness open source if Wikipedia is becoming a name that everyone knows it is because it was a community if it is because everyone was allowed to to engage and to contribute is because everyone could be a content creator and OpenStreetMap so and encourage you ever want making it creates of everyone is what guarantees passes the nobility so let's put our money where our mouth bass younger people and we mean we will the I
think I have only 1 last remark about that meant the in the
way that of the Roman there was almost Armstrong also the research of the limb and all of a person that are often hard to solve the image
just to balance muscle development work in Africa using the movies and you know I have a clear view wanted mortgage and I would like to know all they will road aspects of technology application and you were mostly of technology application coming together and put it into example of just the accessories formulations are important for instance to study markets development here all it's good to have technology which transports informative is also a source community this use of but all of all very simple technologies like refer to a bond on which transports water up from the model to the you know there's no energy or library building on various rewarding machinery which was used in
Greek culture of Germany France and 100 years old but what you saw in which which some becomes the new product and the smooth come so all these people to
run on the economy news coming together all the community benefits of walking on the the thanks yeah I think
many of them I can see how they're coming together and I don't envision what will be the solution in the future but I can say
is an we have some people are thinking and wondering about that kind of stuff so I'll give you 1 example of a project that I was involved with it was called up 21 it was and and maker can um over 5 weeks where we would develop and that kind of products and to be open source so Telford that's where open-source following basic needs and we had a wind turbine we had a our water filter lights from the products so let's try is an amazing solution when you think of other areas where you don't have treatment or if you go to other developing countries but the only problem is it's super expensive and it can be produced locally and so the thing you have 1 person that came from Colombia yet and went through a color academic and said this is a problem to create let's start with that of course that is a solution and a very good 1 thank everyone
for training that but we also need to
and and that's something that's accessible by without a cell and then he develops an
open source like child is proven to work so you have to go out working around that and then we can also connect that reside the person from
GAZ out we need people investing on these young minds were
the ones I don't worry about that because where the food produced so you need to think globally and you have people
usually people work of thinking about how duopoly you transform this kind of products into open-source products they also have the general overview that we need to look at the countries signed up because they're the ones feeding and so and even if you go wider and I denote Europe wouldn't have
been and that if you didn't have been enemy landed on Africa Suu meaning that even if it's on this 2nd argument we use a
lot in Brazil even if it's 1st selfish reasons you need to think about others because you depend on others so even if it's for your own good I think about that kind of stuff so you have some people that are working on that and much less than what would be ideal but products like 21 or Open Source Ecology can be a solution and if we had more people funding those kinds of products as I think we would create a better momentum right I think out tens of
but I final thoughts um life on water life on land and the
whole of enviroment stuff we haven't talked much about it but you know what people in the rural areas deserve to be happy and the things that we are only as strong as our weakest link as the global economy so um how our success can only be measured by how good the last person feels as as Germany only as safe as serious it's because he goes both ways so we cannot be happy in the capital and forget goals of whole apple unhappy in the rural areas because those are the
people who get up and put you out of power was added people would get up and bond you was other people always point who would damage what with its would put so much money so we have to be tax
balance and when we're talking about the quality and antiquity it is very important we can have nicely dressed people speaking in nicely but in got theory as speaking to the same people we need to open up and that is why we're having this discussion this is for every 1 and I think that's a great last 20 where
the if
you think you know you have for joining
us this morning really appreciated the took away a lot of different patterns discussion really to the quality right and then you're meeting were moving forward so it's doing in 1 lesson that starts with analyst things in mind you know 1 of our
planet model and no Florida thank you thank you so the the model that
are around it and you
