Open Streets Cape Town Manifesto

Cape Town’s streets could be much more than they are. By embracing the concept of Open Streets, all of us who use them can create places that embody respect for everyone.

We, the people of Cape Town, believe that streets should be:

Welcoming to all
Places for movement , recreation and expression
In harmony with local cultures and values
Able to meet changing needs
Contributing to a healthy society and thriving business
Part of distinctive and active neighbourhoods
Friends of Open Streets support these principles, and undertake:

To treat with respect and courtesy all who use our streets
To actively create inclusive public streets
To find ways to bridge the social divides of our city
In short: to actively create streets that embody and generate respect for all the people who use them, regardless of who they are and how they move.
