Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has"

Government is a slow and tedious process. While it often includes citizen and neighborhood involvement, non-governmental, private organizations have created movements and interesting groups which can create positive change in our cities and towns.

I am fascinated by the way groups are created and how they influence public decision making. This blog merely recognizes them and forwards the description of these groups from their own websites.

Future Cape Town

Location: Cape Town, South Africa

Website: www.futurecapetown.com

With our roots firmly in the present, and eyes on the full potential of the city we live, play and work in, Future Cape Town is a diverse collection of minds that are driven by sustainable and innovative ways to address modern urban design challenges. 

We offer our opinion through cooperation and collaboration. In doing so, we promote an inspired and active citizenry, a reliable and innovative government and public sector willing to invest in projects that offer change in new ways.

We consider the model of partnerships to be a feasible and sustainable way forward. 

We believe it offers value to all partners, while ultimately benefiting communities. Driven by our focus of “Inspiring a more liveable Cape Town” and through our projects and initiatives, we serve as a platform that brings different stakeholders together, promoting the acceleration of urban change. 

We invest significantly in our social media influence and online presence; these we consider key tools in stimulating active citizenry and creating meaningful public participation techniques and methods.
