The Mount Cook Summit: let's hear your ideas
This weekend 1000 selected Australians gather in Canberra to pitch their best and brightest ideas for Australia's future at the 2020 Summit. It is such an inspiring idea we thought we should have a little one of our own and, in honour of the island's tallest peak, we have decided to name it the Mount Cook Summit.
We know that there were local summits organised in early April around the country but, curiously, in Queensland at least, they only appear to have been organised by ALP politicians. As Peter Lindsay, our Liberal federal representative, doesn't appear to have taken up the challenge and, because we know that our readers are amongst the cleverest around, Magnetic Times has opened it's cyber doors to everybody who would like to present an idea.
But because we are proudly parochial we are more than happy to hear what you would like to see done here on Magnetic or in Townsville or in north Queensland or in Australia or the whole world. We don't mind so long as you don't mind having your comments commented upon by other readers.
So, if it's witty, whacky, small but perfectly formed or just pure, dead, brilliant and you want to tell the world, here is your big chance. Just take to the comments box below. Over to you readers!
