Cape town, South Africa: Promoting non-motorized transport through open streets
This is a project case story within the framework of the TUMI Challenge 2018. Cape Town’s citizens are experiencing the negative impacts of a city planning legacy that prioritizes cars over people. The Open Streets Exchange in October 2018 invited African stakeholders to discuss nonmotorized transport (NMT) and learn about how street closures and other measures can help raise public awareness of the importance of designing streets for people, so that rich and poor alike can move safely through the city without cars.
