Charter Cities Conference 2020

Johannesburg, South Africa
March 17, 2020

The Charter Cities Institute is pleased to announce the Inaugural Charter Cities Conference.

Rapid, poorly managed urbanization, under-provision of infrastructure, and the persistence of extreme poverty are among the most pressing challenges of the 21st century. Creating opportunities for new urban residents means not just improving tens of millions of lives but increasing political stability and ensuring humanity can reach its potential.

Charter cities, new cities with a special jurisdiction which can adopt the best practices of commercial law, are both the most innovative and simultaneously least-explored solution to the challenges presented by underdevelopment. Charter cities create both the necessary physical infrastructure and legal frameworks to encourage investment and employment, setting the stage for decades of economic growth.

Join the Charter Cities Institute to hear from entrepreneurs, investors, new city developers, government officials, and experts in international development for the Inaugural Charter Cities Conference. This groundbreaking conference is the first step to crafting the future of governance.
