In addition to being recognised as a destination for responsible tourism; Langa is implementing the famous 'Broken Window' theory approach to community Safety in partnership with the City's Safety Security Directorate.
Langa is indeed an alternate city centre in the geographic centre of Cape Town and this year, it will showcase four projects as part of World Design Capital: The Langa Quarter, Open Streets, Connected Spaces (free wifi) and Maboneng's Langa TAG (Township Art Gallery) which opened on Open Streets Day 12 October 2013.
* What is unique about streets in Langa?
* How is the Langa Quarter having an impact on public space in Langa?
* How can we build on last year's successful Open Streets to make it a permanent feature of Langa?
* What opportunities will WDC2014 bring to local residents?
As we compile the findings of these walks, we will build a better understanding of the challenges faced in different parts of Cape Town. Our aim is to disseminate this information widely, to create greater awareness of how streets can better serve residents and businesses and to encourage the participation of all who use our streets.
So please join us in an exercise of active learning and exchange of knowledge and ideas. If you, or others you know can't make this event but would like to stay informed of future events and news, please let us know and we will add you to our mailing list.
There is a 20 guest limit, please register to ensure your spot.
