Cape Town’s streets in the spotlight at Future Cape Town Summit




Long-Street-by-night

On Monday 30 September, Future Cape Town will be hosting our 4th summit entitled “The Long and Short of Better Streets” at the Cullinan Hotel in Cape Town.

This summit will aim to look at how a city-wide conversation on improved streets, beyond the debate on Long Street, can promote implementation and action. Are we asking the right questions, and do we understand the processes which can lead to action? What role can design play and are we engaging the public sufficiently and in interesting ways?

The Future Cape Town Summit is a series of regular discussions with a high-level panel of cross-sector thought leaders to consider pertinent urban and economic issues of the time. The Summits aim to create an open space for inclusive ideas, opinions, and robust debate.

Says Rashiq Fataar, Director of Future Cape Town: “When we speak of pedestrianising Long Street,  it is important to ask what this space can do for the whole of Cape Town, and more importantly, how all streets in the city can be improved through innovative engagement processes.”
