iZimvo zase Kasi: Your city, your views

Infecting the City 2013

What we’ve realised over more than a decade at the Cape Town Partnership is that none of us can solve the challenges we face in the city alone.  If we’re to have a cohesive urban fabric in the future, we need a cohesive human fabric on which to build it today. We need a network that helps us connect town to township, city to city, people who are here today with people who will live here tomorrow. With this in mind, the Cape Town Partnership recently launched the Central City Partners Forum for 2013 under the new banner of iZimvo zase Kasi. This Xhosa phrase approximates to “views from the city” and represents an invitation for everyone in the city to get involved and share their views, their ideas and their time on how to make Cape Town a more sustainable and inclusive city.

On Your Bicycle!

nmt

There’s no doubt about it – the use of bicycles is vital to creating more liveable cities for all citizens. It is one of the key points made in the “Our Cities Ourselves Exhibition: The Future of Transportation in Urban Life”, organized by the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP) and displayed recently at the Freeworld Coating Design Centre. It’s a point which the Cape Town Partnership and the Central City Improvement District support wholeheartedly. The reasons are obvious – if you’re on a bike, you take up less space, use fewer resources and contribute to a far healthier environment and to your own health. Just as importantly, if you are on a bicycle, you understand your city so much better. Continued…
