Social innovation will be critical in adjusting to this change.
Fuzzy is implementing a plan to transform Adelaide in readiness for the new future.
The plan aims to make Adelaide a World Centre based on our City’s unique “Particularity”.
“Different cities can have their own particularity, their own ethos, … and this resists the homogenization of globalization”. Nationalism should be very muted and we think a better case can be made for our identities to be attached to cities, and in order for that to happen it is important for cities to have particular characteristics that make people proud”. (Professor Daniel Bell; The Spirit of Cities – Why the identity of Cities Matters in a Global Age).
Adelaide has a unique legacy which sets us apart from other cities and can make us feel proud.
We can use this legacy to position our city into the coming future.
Recognizing and naming our Particularity is the first step in transforming Adelaide.
The Plan to Transform Adelaide into Version 4 explains how.
You pay nothing to download the plan, but you agree to donate whatever you think the plan is worth. When you have finished reading, if you think the idea is worth nothing, then donate nothing, if you think it’s a genuinely transformative idea and you want to give support, donate as much as you like.
