Volunteers are at the heart of the global Open Streets movement. In Cape Town we have learned that people are eager to be part of a citizen movement that resonates with them. Open Streets provides an easy vehicle to jump on (pun intended). We are amazed at the passion and caliber of individuals that get involved, all sharing the ethos of our Open Streets manifesto.
From helping with the operational logistics of Open Streets days, managing our database, website and accounting or providing legal/expert advice, to helping out on our tactical urbanism initiatives, we have had a lot of fun with our group of volunteers.
The family grows and we are eager to find a system that enables everyone, regardless of where they live, to be part of the movement. Cape Town's geography makes it difficult for this to be realized in the short term and so we are looking for opportunities to explore areas outside the CBD where the Open Streets magic can be shared.
