Workshop hosted by the Legal Resources Centre and Open Streets Cape Town
Please join us to explore the extent to which legal frameworks can enable rather than impede programmes seeking to make city streets more accessible to communities; in particular, by creating a network of car-free streets on an intermittent basis (Open Streets Days).
The workshop will provide an opportunity for participants to explore the possible regulatory and legal avenues open to OSCT as it seeks to expand the reach of Open Streets Days and shift the conversation around the use of streets, the public realm, and mobility in the city. Please see concept note attached.
Participants: Participants will include legal practitioners, transportation engineers, community organisers, friends of OSCT and public officials.
Location and Time: The Workshop will be held at Inyathelo in Cape Town on Wednesday the 2nd of November from 15:00-18:00.
We hope to begin a discussion about how law regulating urban and land use planning, public gathering, road safety as well as city by-laws can be used to facilitate rather than impede organisations like Open Streets Cape Town. Ultimately, we are working towards legal, policy and civil society solutions that advance a different, more people-centric concept of access to the street and of street life in the City.
