Otra Nation: The Ultimate Frontier
A Regenerative Open Co-nation and Bi-National Socio-EcoTone
This proposal was formally submitted to the Governments of Mexico and the United States on March 20th 2017
“The 19th century brought us boundaries, the 20th century we built walls, the next will bridge nations by creating communities based on shared principles of economic resiliency, energy independence and a trust based society.”
Otra Nation is the regenerative co-nation shared by citizens of both Mexico and the United Stated and co-maintained by respective governments. Physical land and the initial investment will be provided by both countries and the infrastructure and services will be built with a workforce of 50% Mexico and 50% American. Otra Nation is the worlds’ first continental bi-national socio-ecotone.
Since the end of WWII the planet has seen a massive increase in physical borders. These visual scars are deeper even when nations share a rich and vibrant history together. Mexico and the United States have always prospered when they see each others strengths by working together. We propose a trans-national ’New Deal’ to build an innovative shared co-nation based on local economic empowerment, energy independence and revolutionary infrastructure and transit. The next centuries technologies at the cost of the last.
