We invite you to join the mobility conversation in Cape Town, by walking and talking with us at the last Talking Streets of the season at Open Streets Mitchells Plain, which will see Eisleben Road 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 Marco Morgan - will explore the ways in which public transport could enhance social cohesion and celebrate cultural diversity, while delivering a safe and reliable service.
Marco is a husband, father, urbanist, activist and government (un)official with his foundations strongly grounded in skateboarding. He is passionate about the urban environment, but even more so about the people and the cultures that give life to it.
Please RSVP here by Wednesday 27 March 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 Langa, looked at the how children embody streets through play and the the ways in which Open Streets Days could catalyze better awareness around child safety in street environments.
Join the conversation as we walk-and-talk our way to understanding some of the mobility challenges in the Mitchells Plain, and hopefully identifying solutions. 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
