June has been a positive month for Open Streets Cape Town. Following a successful launch on 25 May, 2015, the team has consolidated a business plan to take the organization forward and is formalising a group of supporters and volunteers under the banner of Friends of Open Streets. Tonight, the first gathering will be held at the Woodstock Town Hall in company of local residents, business owners and councilors. Then on Sunday, the Talking Streets series (previously known as Walk & Talk tours) continues by taking a stroll down Malta Road to explore possible next steps in extending the Open Streets Network.
On 14 June, two exciting developments also took place. The Pedal Power Association confirmed its support for the next Open Streets network and the World Design Capital team announced Open Streets was shortlisted for inclusion in the WDC 2014 Official Programme. We are now looking for partners to help us shape and implement an Open Streets network in 2014. Contact us with ideas! firstname.lastname@example.org
