Rejuvenation of the tropical grasslands from desertification.

Stage of Idea planning stage

Explain your idea in details:

Rejuvenation of the tropical grassland from desertification is an initiative that seeks to replenish a once versatile nature's resource, the grasslands from further disappearance resulting from the twin impact of climate change & desert encroachment. It main objective is the restoration of barren lands within the geographical sphere of the tropical grassland biome, back to a healthier condition, in order to recreate an ecosystem that can support the establishment of a new fauna community, sometime in the near future. Secondly, as an alternative to the delay subject to the process of re/afforestation scheme on the short & long run, since the planet is running a race against time to alter the perils unleashed by the aforementioned twin demons, & reduce the rate of greenhouse effect being encountered globally via carbon sequestration. This initiative involves the cultivation of resistant grass species like the: Asian Miscanthus giganteus (known as giant miscanthus, commonly used as a biomass crop), African Pennisetum purpureum (known as napier grass, Uganda grass or giant king grass), & the Asian Arundo donax (known as giant cane, giant reed) on allotted lands. It'll be executed on a wide scale, under several pilot phases to serve as a model to other climes of the world. Besides, It relies heavily on innovative approaches somewhat similar to our modern agricultural practices e.g: (a) Ploughing/Harrowing. (b) Application of Organic manures or fertilizers, if applicable e.g. by the use of nutrient rich sewage sludge or wastewater. (c) Spacing techniques during planting of seeds/offshoots. (d) Irrigation from various source of water supply etc. Factors to be considered with regards to the choice of species for planting proposition on any given landscape includes: (a) Biotic (b) Edaphic (c) Relief (d) Climate (e) Adaptation etc. Mechanized agricultural implements will also be employed at different stages of cultivation down to the harvest of by-products for domestic and industrial purposes.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

Grasscorp is a forthcoming project based on the aforementioned idea; it's expected to target the following SDGs 7,8,13 &15, and enable them become reality by 2030 with the targets below: (1) An alternative to the problems associated with the demand for cheap energy e.g its by-product serve as biomass crops. This'd go a long way towards limiting the world's economy reliance on fossil fuels, which has a negative toll on climate. (ii) Expansion of infrastructure & technological upgrades, which leads to a more cleaner & efficient energy globally using bio-energy. This encourages growth & helps the environment, as energy is the main contributor to climate change; it produces about 60% of GHGs. (2) Sustain economic growth appreciably & opens a window for higher level productivity/technological innovation. This'd yield more robust employment & decent work for all ages/gender by 2030. (3) Efficiently act as a buffer against climate-change globally, due to it low carbon production. At it peak, the project will effectively limit warming to 1.5°c; global net CO2 emissions would drop by about 45% between 2023 & 2030, and probably reach net-zero by 2050, if sustained massively. (ii) Job creation for over 0.5 million workers by 2030, in both formal & informal sectors of the project. (4) Restoration of lands from degradation, drought & desert encroachment on a global scale. (ii) Grasscorp should contribute significantly towards 33% of the CO2 reductions needed by 2030. The project's success will be evaluated in the foreseeable future by these measures: (1) The world's population that relies on polluting & unhealthy fuels for cooking would be further reduced from 40 to 20% by 2030. (2) The unemployed, projected to reach 174 million this year, should be significantly reduced by 2030, with the employment of both skilled and unskilled personnel. (3) An appreciable reduction in global mean temperature to approximately 2°c above pre-industrial levels, if highly invested upon before 2030.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

Grasscorp operates as a hybrid organization (non-profit/profit), although the latter, after the harvest stage, as aerial parts of plant serves as by-products for bio-energy, paper production etc. Harvest is carried-out few weeks before the wet season, but for arid regions & desert terrains, it might be left untouched due to inadequate precipitation to sustain yet another planting season. Although irrigation will be practiced from time-to-time towards salvaging the situation. The earlier aspect involves cultivation of designated species on allocated lands, while carrying-out agricultural practices to enable rapid-high yield before commencement of wet season. It's more labor & capital intensive than the latter stage. As a corporation, it influence is expected to be seen far & wide in diverse regions of the world. It's also expected to have a global market & quarterly/annual growth target, with presence of several shareholders & investment opportunities. In terms of financing sources, I intend to get them from close relatives, well-meaning individuals & stakeholders, private and public partnerships i.e. local/foreign NGOs, Ministry of Environment, National Environmental Standards & Regulations Enforcement Agency (NESREA), and other external agencies e.g. WBG, UNWTO, UNEP, UN-Habitat, UNFCCC etc. Supports could come in form of grants, aids & special fundings e.g ecological funds etc. Meanwhile, such capital would be well utilized in getting ready, adequate infrastructures on ground, manpower & skilled personnel needed to kickstart the project at anypoint in time at several designated sites. A famous African proverb says 'If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go-together.' I intend launching the project into reality, with individuals of like minds & close contacts through networking, support and advice. The impacts of various think-tanks & other entrepreneurs working towards a cleaner energy using biomass as fuel, via intermediate technology will be so useful to a great extent.

Your profile

Paul Onuh is a graduate of B.Sc Geology from the University of Jos, Nigeria. He's 31, a Nigerian by nationality & based in Abuja, the nation's capital city. He's also an emerging creative writer with his flash, Walls of Bones published by the Writers Cafe Magazine issue 19 "Can you dig it." As a young earth scientist, at the age of 25, he embarked on an ExxonMobil sponsored Geological Field Mapping of Wamba Sheet, Mid-Benue Trough, Nassarawa (in partnership with his institution of graduation at 2015/16 respectively). He took out his Research Project Mapping at sections of Lafia Formation with the title: Geology & Lithostratigraphic studies of Ferruginized sandstones within Akpamani & It Environs of the Mid-Benue Trough, which was subsequently published in an educational journal. However, his academic days opened his foresight into the harsh weather condition witnessed during his 3rd, 4th & final field excursion at Shendam, Wamba, and Lafia consecutively. He suffered from lethargy, extreme fatigue, loss of appetite & fungal skin infections from the earlier two trips in particular due to weather conditions. During these trips, he found a certain phenomenal, common with those places namely: (a) Desert encroachment (b) Erosion of various degrees due to a wide range of causes. (c) Drought, especially in Shendam and Lafia. (d) High reliance on wood fuel, leading to loss of vegetative cover on large expanses of land. (e) Re-radiations, & (f) Poor air circulation. Since then, he'd explored various ways through which such unhealthy environmental conditions can be managed extensively by scientific research.  Besides, his intermediate understanding of General Biology, Biogeography & Agricultural Science should go a long way towards seeing the initiative in Grasscorp reach for the sky.

Greetings dear Paul!! Its being long since i hears from you,hope you are ok,and here i share encouraging words to an inspiring entrepreneur like you intending to grow,do you know how many people wishes they could have a chance to inspire the world?it is said that success is where opportunity meets preparation! Sometimes its not all about winning in a race the value remains,what are you running for!keep up the good work and best of luck! it is important for us to sportively accept failures as different possibilities.As great entrepreneurs we have to do this and tell others they need not worry about failures.In fact the best of entrepreneurs do follow their ideas/projects at the cost of repeated failures,because every missed steps will get us closer to success.we must be willing to take certain risks,so that we learn from our mistakes and become capable enough to answer questions correctly to make investors feel comfortable with our dedicated ideas/projects.This shows us why if someone approaches us as entrepreneurs in future with an idea's project,we wun't immediately reject it as ineffective but work together in an innovative way by permitting him/her to think around the idea and determine if it really makes sense and if something goes wrong we wunt discourage that person,instead we will be grateful for learning something new,gain experience and learn from such meetings like this that linked us all here(entrepreneurshipcampus.org!)Thanks be to them again,for this campus has encouraged us all to take more risks by analyzing every aspect of that risk.You all are welcomed to view sustainable Mobile tap bartending cart,link

To add help to your brilliant projec
and see you to the finalist!
degradation is a complex concept that integrates different aspects, including changes in soil conditions, biodiversity, productivity and socio-economic implications, compared to a reference state. I propose a new conceptual framework to help you analyze degradation stages and restoration thresholds in species-rich natural grasslands. The framework integrates different degradation stages with their respective thresholds and describes key processes of land-use change that lead to certain stages and thresholds. Specifically, discuss ,do research on two scenarios of grassland degradation, i.e. unsuitable grassland management and complete change of land use, sometimes followed by spontaneous recovery.

Hello friend! To add to my previous support consider this
Tropical Grassland Plants ;
Common grasses in tropical grasslands include Bermuda grass, elephant grass, blue fescue, feather grass, Rhodes grass, red oats grass and lemon grass. These grasses generally go dormant during the dry period and then grow rapidly during the wet season.

It is important to have a clear sense of mission. Think about who will it benefit, what difference will it make, and how are you going to go about it? It helps to determine the level of social impact in the short and long term and how it will be measured and evaluated. This will also help in reaching the right audience and identifying your marketing and networking strategies.

Once again, to add to all my other comments on your idea, I am sharing with you further tips on traits of being a successful entrepreneur and how to acquire them.

If you are pursuing a dream for becoming a young successful entrepreneur you should know that there is no given recipe for becoming like one of the famous persons that inspire and motivate you all the time. However, there are some characteristics, which successful people share, that can be considered as the main ingredients or the salt and pepper of champion entrepreneurs.

According to entrepreneur.com successful people have the following traits:
Determined, Not afraid to take risks, Confident, Constant learners, Know how to deal with failure, Passionate about their businesses, Highly adaptable, Understand money management, Networking experts and Great at selling and promoting

Meanwhile, investopedia.com shares a list that includes these traits:

My [email protected] Paul, Happy Month of September you. Two months into voting and commenting stage in the Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship competition, I really appreciate every one of us for how far we have come in this competition and still going. Once more, in addition to my previous comments on your idea, I am again sharing an article from the campus competition on the need to focus on support each other ideas and projects with comments.

Comments are an important part of the Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition. One single comment is the first step for getting involved with the Entrepreneurship Campus community.

They help the campus community to be more dynamic and interactive. They create bonds between the campus members and they can also be the ground for dialogue and even long lasting friendships. In our daily life, we all enjoy comments that other people leave on our posts, either in social media posts or in blog posts. A comment, even a smiley face has the power to makes us feel good.

But, in the case of the campus competition, besides the fact that comments make us feel good and confident, comments are really helpful, because they can also provide free advice to our ideas and projects.

Also as highlighted by a recent article in the blog section of the campus competition on the importance of comments, two out of the five points of the Personal Activity Indicator are the following
1. The entrant personal engagement among the Entrepreneurship Campus community by commenting and giving advice to other entries.
2. The number of meaningful comments the entrant idea and project has received from the online Entrepreneurship Campus community.

Therefore, we must think about comments as a tool that can bring value to the person that reads it. It is true that this is a competition, but our ideas and projects will continue their development even when this edition of the Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition will end.

As a campus member, each of us would like to read meaningful suggestions and opinions about our specific entry. Hence, we on our part must post honest, unbiased, helpful, and unique comments on others projects and ideas. How

After reading someone else idea or project, you can express your opinion about the entry, congratulate the user for his or her initiative and efforts, or suggest something that would help the further development of the entry. Every single comment we post must be unique just like each of the ideas and projects is.

I hope this benefits our activities in the campus. In view of the above, I am requesting you to please consider voting and commenting on my idea Eduheal should you come online soon @ https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/26/17805/

Thank you for supporting my idea with your votes and comments

August 30, 2020 10:43

Dear Paul I think your idea is great. Grasscorp would be ideal in creating jobs as well as reduction of fossil fuels there by protection the plant. We need younger people like you with the expertise and skills to move this nation forward. All the best.

Many social entrepreneurs build cognitive dissonance into their business models. Their beneficiaries (usually low-income families) have little in common with their customers (usually high income). My advice to any nonprofit leader is to develop a business model in which the customer is as close to the beneficiary as possible

Congratulations on this great project, I think: The rejuvenation of tropical grasslands due to desertification is an initiative that aims to replenish a once versatile natural resource, the grasslands of a new disappearance resulting from the double impact of climate change and l encroachment of the desert. Its main objective is the restoration of drylands in the geographical sphere of the tropical grassland biome, back to a healthier state, in order to recreate an ecosystem that can support the establishment of a new wildlife community, in the near future. . Second, as an alternative to the delay subject to the short and long term re / reforestation process, since the planet is racing against time to modify the perils triggered by the aforementioned twin demons, and reduce the greenhouse effect rate encountered globally via carbon sequestration. This initiative involves the cultivation of resistant grass species such as: Asian Miscanthus giganteus (known as giant miscanthus, commonly used as a biomass crop), African Pennisetum purpureum (known as napier grass, Uganda grass or giant king grass) and Asian Arundo donax (known as the giant cane, giant reed) on the allotted land. It will be implemented on a large scale, under several pilot phases to serve as a model for other climates around the world. In addition, it relies heavily on innovative approaches somewhat similar to our modern farming practices, for example: (a) Plowing / Harrow. (b) Application of organic manure or fertilizer as appropriate eg. through the use of sewage sludge or nutrient-rich wastewater. (c) Spacing techniques when planting seeds / branches. (d) Irrigation from various water supply sources, etc. Factors to consider when choosing species for the planting proposal on a given landscape include: (a) Biotic (b) Edaphic (c) Relief (d) Climate (e) Adaptation, etc is a very good project . We young entrepreneurs must see more on the ecological side and preservation of wildlife without forgetting the issue of healthy food. If this project is set up, I would be happy to participate with technical and financial contributions.
Thank you and congratulations.

[email protected] of the tropical grasslands from desertification, your idea is imprcomment on each other ideas or projects, so, I am sharing with you the importance of us supporting each other even though we are in a competition.
As we all know, the voting process started here at the Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition since 6 July and all Campus Members are excited.
But why it is important to vote one another, even if we are in a competition
When you vote and comment, you support the best ideas or projects. It is very important to give a vote to an idea or project you think is a good one and has possibilities to be implemented in the reality. Since the voting process is open to the public, some people can get undeserved votes and better ideas that are running in this competition can be left behind. That is why your votes and comment are important.

When you vote and comment, you support innovation and change. The selected ideas and projects have been selected by taking into account many criteria, among them the innovation and the change that an idea can bring to a community or country. This is very crucial for the development of poor communities and we believe change comes from youth, so if you consider any idea to be innovative, do not hesitate to VOTE for it. You can become part of change, indirectly.

When you vote and comment, you support a dream-This competition is about dreamers and young ambitious people who think they can change the world by first bringing change to their communities. Many of the accepted ideas or projects are now very important to the people who submitted them and they are hoping to get our VOTE and COMMENTS. Just a single Vote AND Comment can motivate each of us further to start implementing the ideas or projects even if they do not make it to the finals.

When you vote and comment, you give value to the world-Only people of value are able to give value to others and the world. As Einstein said once: Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value. By voting and commenting the most valuable ideas or projects you are adding value and contributing to the future of many people, although this might seem very utopic at the beginning.

I hope you will derive some benefits from this.

Finally, I have voted and commented on your idea; please consider supporting my idea with your votes and comments @https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/26/17094/

Best of luck in your implementation.

Dear @Rejuvenation of tropical grassland from desertation. Again, your idea is a great one. However, while reading through friends ideas and projects , I discovered that some of us are yet to understand the journey we have engage ourselves on, because we are not even voting our own ideas or perhaps not even visiting the platform in months and it looks as if our ideas or projects are just there looking for us to attend to them, so in addition to my other comments on your idea or project, I am sharing with you a letter to all entrepreneurs from one of the campus articles; meant to encourage me and you in this journey we have decided to engage ourselves. So please to read and decide what you want.

Dear Young Entrepreneur,
How are you and your business today
Having stepped out to start your own business, let me first say a big congratulations to you
Your life is about to change, that is it, if it has not started changing already. I am writing this letter to let you know why I think so.
I know you are very busy and if you are not, you will soon be, so let me cut to the chase. Now an entrepreneur, time means a whole lot to you. As a matter of fact, it is your most vital currency, unfortunately, though, you do not and will never have so much of it.

When I first heard that you have decided to become an entrepreneur, to chart your own course in the crazy world of business, a part of me was really excited and then the other half was a bit worried.

Let me tell you about both halves, so you know.

I was excited because you have decided to walk a path in life that many people are so scared of taking. Too many people out there have dreamt of launching out and be an entrepreneur, of turning their idea into physical reality and build a real business from it, of giving their dream a chance to happen in the marketplace, but only a few have had the guts to take that bold step. For the rest, they simply continue to sit quietly in their couch of rationalizations or pretexts and stare at the screen of their business idea with the hope that one day everything will turn out perfect and then they would get up and do something about it.

I have seen many of such folks and I suspect you know some of them. I call such people the Dreamers United Football Club and nothing more. They prefer to just dream and dream about being an entrepreneur than to take steps to become one. They have a business idea, sometimes even more than one, but they hold themselves back from taking action. In their minds, their ideas are running on full production scale, but in reality, nothing is happening. They just stay put in their comfort zones and watch the caravan of time and opportunities drive past them. Well, I really do not blame them. Truth be told, being an entrepreneur is not breeze. It comes with its own level of stress, unknowns, and fears. And who likes stress, unknowns, and fears, anyway

Yet, you looked past those factors and still chose to do this, to put yourself on the line, to defy the odds and enroll yourself in this new profession the profession of starting an enterprise and seeing it grow and add real value to the lives of people and create sustainable wealth in the process. For this, I salute you.
Think of the number of lives your business will transform. The capacity you will develop. The jobs you will create. The mouths your business will feed. The innovations it will birth. The culture it will influence. The revenues it will generate. And the great contributions it will make to national and, yes, global development. Actually, your taking this step to start is the beginning of something monumental the birthing of a great future, more like it. So, you can now see why I am excited for you, right

Having said that, let me talk to you about why I am a bit worried.
Actually, I am not here to scare you off, but neither am I here to hide the stark realities from you.
So, I will say this to you, straight up. If I push your buttons in the process, please do not mind me.
I am only doing this for your own good.

Being an entrepreneur is not childs play. This is not bread and beans I am talking about here. I am talking about real involvement and commitment on your part. Starting and building a successful enterprise requires real work and sacrifices. lots of it.
For your information, there will be long and lonely nights.
There will be days when you question your sanity for taking this step. There will be days when customers, employees, suppliers, family members, or government will not be there to encourage you and you just have to encourage yourself. There will be days when it seems like the world is spinning so fast and you just cannot seem to get a hold of things or connect the dots. Days when you do not feel the usual juice to hit the street and make a sale. Days when the eyes of your rising costs and falling profits just refuse to blink. What would you do

Yes, I agree with you. Being an entrepreneur makes you free. You are free because you are now your own boss, but, mind you, you are not free from the responsibilities that such title places on you. You can choose to wake up and go to bed anytime you like, nobody will question you, but then remember you are an entrepreneur and it is your duty to stay responsible. Responsible entrepreneurs stay true to their commitments and they operate with a certain sense of urgency in the way they approach life and their goals. As an entrepreneur, your daily habits will have to change and you must be willing to give up short term pleasures to achieve long term gains.

This is not the time to play around. So, snap out of your wet dream and smell the coffee. Nobody is going to take you by the hand and lead you all the way to your destiny, toll free. The world is too busy to pamper you to success. You must learn to paddle your own boat and tell your own story. But as you do so with focus and diligence, here is the good news, help will begin to meet you along the way.

To build a successful business, you must stay discipline in the way you manage your time and priorities, manage relationships, deal with money, take care of your health, serve your customers, and how you deal with the issues of leadership. Do not let your small beginning make you small minded. The size of your vision really matters and must be taken seriously. And then always know why you do what you do; let your purpose guide and compel you to be the best version of yourself.

Trust me, being an entrepreneur is a different kettle of fish.
As an entrepreneur, you will not only be expected to change the way you think, but also to change the way you think about the things you think about. Remember you are not the only one in the market. There are many others like you out there. In business, they are called competitors. And they are there to compete with you and win over your customers. So, you must sit up and constantly look for better ways to have your customers fall and stay in love with you. Learn from your competitors. Of course, they have a lot to teach you, but in doing so, remember that you must not lose that very thing that makes you unique. Your uniqueness is your trump card, so guard it and never lose it.

And that reminds me. Having good products is good but please do not assume that because you have good products, it will always sell itself in the market. Well, that era has come and gone. In this era, your product must not only be good but you must also learn how to sell it well.

This is the mistake most young entrepreneurs make and I really do not want you to make the same mistake. So, if you do not know how to sell, then go learn it. As a matter of fact, if you do not know anything, go out there and learn it. There are countless of quality resources and good people out there who will be willing to teach you the right stuffs. But then when they teach you, please endeavor to take consistent actions and fine tune your process because only then will you improve and produce the results you seek.

Certainly, I cannot tell you everything you need to know in this letter but I promise to always stay in touch and write to you every so often. But I hope you can find meaning in what I have told you so far and get proactive. Please do not be scared. But even if you are, not to worry. Every great entrepreneur you have heard of had once experienced fears. When I started out as an entrepreneur years ago, I had my own fears too. So, you are not alone in this. It is normal. It shows you are human. But what I can say to you is that you should not let your fears stop you. Use them to your advantage.
Approach your business with boldness and grit. Let your fears open you up for quality learning and gratitude. You can pull this off and I believe so much in you. Just stay focused and positive. Stay honest with yourself, do the work involved, and never, ever lose sight of your big picture.

I got your back on this.

Dear friend, I hope this helps in motivating you to pick up from where you stopped and keep forging up

Best wishes in this journey and in your implementation. Stay positive on the competition. It teaches us a lot of things to keep us sailing to the beach.

I have voted and made a comment on your idea or project; so please should you come online soon, do consider supporting my idea Eduheal with your votes and comments @ https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/26/17805/

Hi ephraim/essien

"Page 148: Economics is something much too important for us to leave it to the economists".

Generally speaking, economists elaborates theories and can model them in a mathematical language to tell the reader how they work, how economic growth can be realized, what happens to the businesses when central banks increase/decrease the interest rate, what you have to do to improve the efficiency of labor in your company. They are able to tell precisely how many employees you have to take on in order to maximize profit.
On the other hand, they can tell you that you need to buy for example a French fries processing machine to improve the productivity of labor, but they do not know how to produce that machine. You need technology to design it and manufacture it. Another example, we are in the COID-19 pandemic period. Economists can tell can calculate and tell you that you need a robot which can serve x guests in your restaurant each hour in order to bridge the period while keeping inventory and the production capacity of bread at the same level, but they cannot tell you how to make that robot.

At this specific point, you need an entrepreneur who sees an opportunity in all this story. You need a risk-taking guy who can involve his money and time in producing that potatoes machine, or in producing the robot.

Thank you ephraim/essien for your educative article.

Guten Tag to You

Today being funfzhen August, I want you consider the following questions before the main one below

Are you unconventional?
Did you really know what motivate you?
Or to be an entrepreneur?
If yes, move ahead of others questions below

Did you know that Social entrepreneurship is as important for the development of societies as entrepreneurship is for the development of the economy? ROGER MARTIN SALLY OSBURG

Page 128

Did you know The World Needs Entrepreneurs in German society, but really everywhere, there are many creative people who have good ideas they had like to implement, and who perhaps are already doing so with great commitment in political parties, associations, clubs or as volunteer? But they scarcely ever think that they could also pursue such activities in the form of entrepreneurship, with financial goals for themselves.

Page 133

The destination of humanity is the education of the individual into a harmonious work of art, a personality developed in all its talents, with a positive perspective on all aspects of the world WILHELM v HUMBOLDT

Page 136

Did you know The Austrian economist Joseph Schumpeter 1883 1950, who taught at Oxford, Cambridge and Harvard universities was the first to have presented the figure of the businessman as a key element of economic life?

Page 137

Did you know when in 1784 the German philosopher Immanuel Kant answered the question, What is Enlightenment? He gave a definition that related not only to mans political emancipation, but also to his economic self liberation. According to the philosopher, Enlightenment is mans emergence from his self imposed immaturity?

Page 139

Did you know Most of the time, the customary is even more inhibiting than the repressive? ERNST BLOCH

Page 143

Did you know the development of an entrepreneurial idea is, above all, a creative process. Its engineering is comparable to an artistic creative act? KARL VESPER

Page 148

Did you know Economics is something much too important for us to leave it to the economists? Please share this to all members and contestants 2020 at your commenting phase

Page 149

Based on some concrete facts that Everyone is or can become an entrepreneur, there was an amazing interview with Professor Guenter Faltin German and Professor Muhammad Yunus Bangladesh.

Faltin What about the educational system. Usually we believe that the educational system has to equip people with the aforementioned capabilities and talents.

Yunus Not only education I would say, rather appropriate education. Some education can give you a wrong mindset. Education can train and prepare yourself to work for somebody. That is not a good education as regards entrepreneurship. Education should aim at telling the following message to the people you could do things on your own. But if you want as an option to work for somebody else, that is OK, too. You can do it yourself, you have the capability. Education should also encourage you to think and find your own talents instead of only preparing you for the necessary steps to have a little job in a company. One should not be prevented from finding out that one could have done something completely different. Education has to be at open ends so that you are aware of your opportunities. Information technology is very important in that regard as well. You have to be able to explore your own thing instead of only following what is in your textbooks and not what is beyond your textbooks. Information technology does not have a textbook so you have to design your own textbook, what you want to know about yourself, the world, what kind of thing you want to do yourself. Indeed, information technology today comes as a very powerful instrument to discover yourself.

Page 159

Faltin All the time we are busy in turning ourselves into entrepreneurs. What is your advice to us? Where should we start in order to become entrepreneurs in the Western culture?

Yunus The starting point is only at the personal level and creating institutions, educational opportunities and websites, which can be contacted by the individual people to raise questions such as What am I doing here? I could have done this, I could have done that. Why do not we explore this one a little bit more? It is about creating individuals to be themselves, discover themselves and explore themselves. That spirit of exploring oneself is the most important act. Of all the things we can do to help becoming entrepreneurs, this is the best thing we can all do.

Did you know that according to Leonardo da Vinci wherein the ultimate accomplishment lies?

Did you know that the answer is in simplicity? Check the wonderful and amazing book titled Brains beat Capital thanks bye.

Welcome You Today To Our Sharing Phase
I want to ask some questions
Do you take your on line training course?
How do you feel?
And if yes?
How was your experience?
If No why?

This is the time to read and reflect with my sharing of today to others.

There is much to suggest that entrepreneurs can live a freer, more intense and probably more fulfilled life than many of their contemporaries. To be sure, few people possess such extreme personalities as Richard Branson nevertheless many of the better known founders are free spirits, with a personality profile closer to artists than to managers and bookkeepers
Page 133
Entrepreneurship as an Adventure The thrill that many people seek in an adventure vacation can also be found through entrepreneurship, through innovative and at times extravagant professional work. The strains of wage labor are inadequately mitigated by the worker focus on vacation. What makes a vacation exciting for a short time could instead be used to make work more fulfilling throughout the entire year.
Page 134
Say Goodbye to Old Ways of Thinking do not draw conclusions about the future based on the past Innovative start ups are the engine for modern economies. They bring new technologies, new ideas and new concepts to the market, they maintain competitiveness, and they lead to increased productivity. On this, economic experts agree.
Page 134
Need Innovative Start ups in its country report on Germany 2005 the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor GEM points out the following innovative start ups stimulate competition, accelerate structural change and, if successful, generate growth and jobs. For a highly industrialized country like Germany, with few natural resources, they are the key variable for international competitiveness. Consequently Germany must intensify its efforts to increase innovation, in particular to foster innovative start ups, especially in knowledge intensive sectors.
Does our Educational System Teach for Entrepreneurship? In the real world of the market, decisions are always made under conditions of uncertainty. School, however, is a system of certainty. The material is preselected, published in textbooks. The teachers know the exercises, the approaches for solving the problems and the solutions themselves. Complex reality is didactically reduced and assigned to particular subjects. Thus the setting of the educational system is at odds with the demands of entrepreneurship.

Has our Entrepreneurial Spirit Emigrated? And what about the entrepreneurial spirit? With the emergence of the investor in place of the entrepreneur, the emergence of industrial policy instead of market forces and the government favoring of national champions instead of enforcing antitrust law, our entrepreneurial spirit seems to be in the process of dying out. For quite some time now the threat of mass layoffs by the major players has succeeded in extorting desired policies from the government. The ugly motto of privatize the profits and socialize the losses has begun to catch on among the public. For the little guys the risk remains as high as before extremely high, in fact. Most of them are gone within five years of start up.

Declaration of Independence
Entrepreneurship must liberate itself from the clutches of business administration. The hour of independence has struck. Allan Gibb, an outstanding personality in the field of startup research in Great Britain, goes so far as to urge that entrepreneurship be completely liberated from what he calls the business knowledge context. The significance of an intensive engagement with the concept has been pushed aside by the domineering transmission of business administration knowledge. It is necessary, says Gibb, to rescue entrepreneurship from this marginalization and to discard its customarily close connection with business administration because this is a much too restrictive pattern of thinking.
An Invitation to a Dance
Jonas Ridderstråle & Kjell Nordström, two Swedish economists, gave their book Funky Business a German subtitle that translates into something like How Smart Brains Get Capital to Dance. Their central thesis is that the new champions in economic life will be those who have ideas, even if they lack capital. The losers will be the capitalists with no ideas.
Faltin As economists we know that the cause or centre of unequal income distribution and unequal wealth distribution is due to commercial activity. That is where the problem starts. Those who are entrepreneurs usually accumulate a lot of money and others do not. So if you can increase participation in entrepreneurship that would be the decisive point to change society and all the inequality.

Yunus: Absolutely. My own feeling is all human beings can by birth become entrepreneurs. It is rooted in the person itself. But the society we have created does not allow most of the people to bring out the gift they carry inside of them. They do not know that they possess the entrepreneurial capability. They look at it in a way as I do not know what to do. I work for you because I have nothing good to discover inside of me. That is the point where society goes wrong. Society should encourage everybody to explore the potential they have inside of them. It is a wonderful gift you have and never unwrapped, never looked at and that is why you do not know. That is where we are coming from in creating the problem of inequality because your own thinking has remained little. You have not seen that you are there. If you were aware of your capabilities, you could contribute those to the society.

Page 158 - 159

Faltin But nobody believes that. You say everybody possesses the capability to engage in commercial activity, even the ones who are not highly educated and not in the hunting field. Can really everybody become an entrepreneur?
Yunus Yes. Even the beggar woman or the beggar man in the streets of Bangladesh, India or Africa has as much entrepreneurial potential inside as anybody else in the world. They simply have never opened their box to find out that it is all in there because they never knew that it is there. Society never allowed, never facilitated unwrapping that gift. In terms of potential we are all equal. Some have discovered or caught a little of that potential, others have not.

Great [email protected] of tropical grasslands from desertification. Your idea is an innovating one, considering the challenges of climate charge. However, I suggest that while you are implementing afforestation programme, you consider sensitization programmes on effects of deforestation.

Also, consider enrolling in the campus online training. This will help you improve on your entrepreneurial skills and derive the necessary motivation to keep forging ahead in the entrepreneurial journey even in the face of difficulties

I have also discovered that some of us do not understand that we have 15 minutes from July 6th to vote for our ideas or projects and vote for others as well if necessary. But at least we can vote for ourselves every day because in the campus competition, number of votes and comments gotten is one of the requirements for being a finalist and actually winning apart from the quality of a member concept. Please try to be an active participant while in the campus.

I hope this helps as we are currently voting and commenting

Please I have commented on your project and will vote if I have not done that; should you come online soon, do consider supporting my idea Eduheal with your vote and comment @https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/26/17805/

Hello there,

I read the this statement from the platform. Today I would like to reflect on it.

"Successful companies originate in the mind. The better an entrepreneurial concept is and the more it is
Analyzed and fine-tuned, the more it will resemble a finished work of art and the more likely it is to be successful".

The French poet Nicolas Boileau said: "Whatever is well conceived is clearly said, and the words to say it flow with ease".
This quote comes from his Poetic Art where he provides advice on how to write well in French. So before writing, learn to think. Depending on whether our idea is more or less obscure, the expression follows it, either less distinct, either more pure.

Actually it is the same process that we have to adopt when conceiving a new business. It is easier to operate rapid adjustments (agility) when we fully understand what we are doing. Like a work of art, an entrepreneur should polish his idea, re-work it over and over again until he has a clear concept ready to be implemented.

Innovative idea @Rejuvenation of the tropical grasslands from desertification. Your idea is assisting in planting grasses where it has been extinct due to climate change issues is awesome. It is indeed imperative that all hands should be on deck to fight against climate change issues. Bill Gate in a recent interview with MarketWatch published on August 6, 2020 stated that by 2060, climate change could be just as deadly as COVID 19, and by 2100, it could be five times as deadly. If the proper measures are not taken, he wrote in a blog post this week, then the impact could be far more devastating. Gates put the mortality rate of coronavirus at about 14 deaths per 100,000. By the end of the century, if the emissions growth rate stays its current course, he said we could be faced with an extra 73 deaths in 100,000 people due to rising global temperatures.

As awful as this pandemic is, climate change could be worse, he wrote. If you want to understand the kind of damage that climate change will inflict, look at COVID 19 and spread the pain out over a much longer period of time. The loss of life and economic misery caused by this pandemic are greater than what will happen regularly if we do not eliminate the world carbon emissions.

Gates projected that, within 20 years, the economic damage from climate change will be as bad as having the equivalent of a COVID 19 pandemic every decade.

The key point is not that climate change will be disastrous, he said. The key point is that, if we learn the lessons of COVID 19, we can approach climate change more informed about the consequences of inaction, and more prepared to save lives and prevent the worst possible outcome. The current global crisis can inform our response to the next one.

We need to let science and innovation lead the way, Gates said, finding the necessary solutions, such as cleaner sources of energy and other zero carbon tools, that work not only for the global powers, but for poorer countries poised to get hit the hardest, as well.

The effects of climate change will almost certainly be harsher than COVID 19, and they will be the worst for the people who did the least to cause them, Gates continued. The countries that are contributing the most to this problem have a responsibility to try to so.

With this, Bill Gate has added his voice to the issues of climate change and I strongly believe we need to all be involve in ensuring climate change issues are arrested.

Finally, my dear friend please create time to take the online training. You will never regret doing that.
