London Charter Cities Meetup

Newspeak House 133 Bethnal Green Road, E2 7DG London, United Kingdom

Executive Director Mark Lutter and Communications Lead Tamara Winter will be on hand throughout the night to say hi and answer your questions about charter cities. Light appetizers will be provided.

We invite you to join the Charter Cities Institute for a discussion about charter cities, effective altruism, and why we think we’ve identified the best way to lift ten million people out of poverty.

Charter cities are cities with special jurisdictions which give them a blank slate, or close to it, in commercial law. The new jurisdiction allows them to adopt the best practices in business registration procedure, labor law, tax administration, commercial dispute resolution, and more. By adopting governance systems which encourage trade, investment, and entrepreneurship charter cities create the conditions for decades of economic growth. Examples proto-charter cities include Shenzhen, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Dubai, whose successes demonstrate that it is possible for cities to achieve prosperity in 2-3 generations.

Whether you're interested in discovering just what exactly charter cities are or are a skeptic, we'd love to meet you.
