How can innovative public engagement co-develop a 2040 vision?
Services: Engagement, Research, Urban Strategy and Visioning
The Future Tyger project was a public engagement campaign by the Greater Tygerberg Partnership and the City of Cape Town which aimed to gather public input and buy-in as part of plans to transform and rejuvenate the Voortrekker Road development corridor including the Bellville central area by 2040. The project commenced with a series of public conversations aimed at collecting feedback from those who live, work, learn, play, use health facilities or own businesses in the area. Innovative technologies were used to encourage creative collaboration through a series of hackathons, 3D simulation models of the city and public meetings. Social media, gaming and traditional media was also used to engage with people in the area and other affected stakeholders.
