“Cities are the epicentre of our humanity social models. Every city needs to become a live digital platform, where ideas, resources, tech, data, intelligence can be used and shared.

can we create a #citiesabc 4IR Magna Carta for our Cities & Nations?
Magna Carta still forms an important symbol of liberty today, often cited by politicians and campaigners, and is held in great respect by the British and American legal communities. The original Magna Carta Libertatum (Medieval Latin for “Great Charter of Freedoms”), was done more than 800 years ago and the commonly called Magna Carta (also Magna Charta; “Great Charter”), was a major breakthrough in vision and creating a new narrative for social economic powers. This document of the Thirteen venture was an inception charter of rights that was initially agreed to by King John of England at Runnymede, near Windsor, on 15 June 1215.
The document was first drafted by the Archbishop of Canterbury to make peace between the unpopular King and a group of rebel barons, it promised the protection of church rights, protection for the barons from illegal imprisonment, access to swift justice, and limitations on feudal payments to the Crown, to be implemented through a council of 25 barons. At the time this was unique as a legal and government documentation but also as a solution for the social issues of the time.
4IR Blockchain: Magna Carta for Internet
There are strong synergies between the 4IR blockchain and Magna Carta. Magna Carta provided the framework for modern-day governance through the rule of law, the fourth Industrial revolution and special blockchain is able to provide a framework to govern the information and data, with code and programmes.
Beyond numerous new services and products that blockchain could bring to us, it also has a meaning for data decentralisation and freedom. The British Library recently conducted a survey with about 3,000 participants with the purpose of creating a digital “Magna Carta” for the Internet age, resulting in a top ten list of declarations for the World Wide Web. Roughly 500 stipulations were conceived by the surveyed group, ages 10-18.
The biggest ultimatum given was for the Internet to be free from control of governments or corporate entities. The number 1 clause for the Digital Magna Carta reads:
“The Web we want will not let companies pay to control it, and not let governments restrict our right to information.”
Along with the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta (June 15, 1215) and the 25th birthday of the World Wide Web, British Library launched a project called “Magna Carta: My Digital Rights”. Young people should think about issues of privacy, access and freedom in the digital age, originally raised by Magna Carta. And Blockchain is one of the tools to achieve this goal.
With the fast development of blockchain, and the synergies between Magna Carta and 4IR and technologies such as BlockChain, AI Magna Carta should be granted a new meaning: a symbol of liberty, empowerment in technology and innovation, special for our organisations and cities.
