A former political advisor, now the co-founder of One Big Switch and the FiftyUp Club, Lachlan Harris has taken the power of the group-order to a whole new level. His organisations use the internet to harness mass-consumer buy-ins in order to negotiate discounts on basic services like electricity and mobile data. Think collective action,
but for your electricity bill. 

In the future Lachlan hopes Sydney: “Learns to understand, accept and adopt our past and uses that to inform our future. We have the raw materials to be the greatest city in the world.”
