Join us on 19 September for a day of embracing your inner kid to critically examine how we can create a child-friendly city at the street level in Cape Town.

In collaboration with Childsafe South Africa, Development Action Group, Gauteng City-Region Observatory, Sustainable Livelihoods Foundation and WesternCape on Wellness (WoW!), Open Streets is hosting its first Street Indaba. The programme will focus on how children experience streets, highlight local initiatives that place “children at the centre”, and what needs to change to make streets safer, more welcoming and easier to navigate in an inclusive and sustainable city.
Our keynote speaker is Kirti Zala from Ahmedabad, India, who leads aProCh.org - a Protagonist in every Child - a community-based children’s advocacy initiative working to make cities child-friendly.
The day will include dialogue, games, lunch, a world cafe session to showcase local initiatives, and prizes for those who really get into the youthful spirit.
You will also have an opportunity to see the real issues in action, as we walk to a nearby primary school, retracing the steps of children along the main thoroughfare in Langa.
Date: Wednesday 19 September 2018
Time: 08h30 - 16h00
Venue: Guga S'thebe, Langa
