We invite you to join the mobility conversation in Cape Town, by walking and talking with us at Open Streets Langa, which will see King Langalibalele Drive (Washington Street) and Jungle Walk temporarily transformed into a car-free public space. This Talking Streets walk is an opportunity to experience more of an Open Streets Day; to explore the street environment and share observations with fellow street enthusiasts.
The walk and discussion - facilitated by Siviwe Mbinda - will reflect on the outcomes of the recent Street Indaba, hosted in Langa in September 2018, which gathered together a wide range of people to focus on how to create more child-friendly streets across Cape Town.
Please RSVP here by Wednesday 20 February 2019
Our current Talking Streets series aims to gather information about how people are using streets, and what the opportunities are for shifting to lower carbon transport choices in our transport behaviour. We are exploring topics around mobility and access, and the opportunities and challenges we experience in different street environments around Cape Town. The previous conversation, Talking Streets City Centre, looked at the behaviour of different street users in shared spaces.
Join the conversation as we walk-and-talk our way to understanding some of the mobility challenges in Langa, looking specifically at the issues around child-safety and streets. We will be joined by a guest speaker, and the walk will include activities to spark imagination and conversation. Space is limited and more specific information will be provided closer to the time.
For more information please contact Tiffany Chalmers (firstname.lastname@example.org), who is helping us coordinate this Talking Streets series.
Talking Streets is part of our work in partnership with the WWF Nedbank Green Trust
