The third Future Cape Town Summit, entitled The Engaged City, took place on the 29th of July, 2013 and was hosted at the Taj Hotel Cape Town. The meeting was a small gathering of urban planning, design and architecture professionals, city officials, and NGOs with an interest in urban issues.
Future Cape Town has called for a meeting on the state of public participation in Cape Town. Entitled “Engaged City”, the purpose of the summit is to tackle the issue of public participation and engagement around urban developments and policies, and to find practical ways forward.
Following our experience over the past year with the Your City Idea voting installation, a public engagement project, and our public space research project, Future Spaces, Future Cape Town intends to open the call for submissions for our compendium or report, The Engaged City.
