At the meeting yesterday, we were asked about some of the material that inspired our ideas. One of the ideas that a lot of people said needed more explanation was our charter city, Turing.
This video talks about putting charter cities in third world nations, sponsored by the laws of a first world nation. Our vision for a charter city in Australia doesn’t require the sponsorship from another nation. However the principle still applies: we can help satisfy societal needs by changing the laws slightly in a designated area, namely a city. Laws about development, transportation and immigration can all be slightly adjusted in the bounds of the charter city to create a successful and vibrant new city for Australia.
