The project takes a systems perspective on complex urban challenges, and is focused on creating green economy opportunities related to water and waste. These opportunities are underpinned by social and ecological well-being objectives such as fairness, participation, creativity, opportunity, freedom, sustainability, stewardship and regeneration.
We have partnered with Cordaid, Thrive, Hout Bay Partnership, Cape Town Partnership and the Cape Peninsula University of Technology on a shared learning journey with the Hout Bay community. A sustainable world already exists and that the ecosystems that surround us are the genius of this story. We value nature not for what we can extract, harvest or utilise, but what we can learn, enhance and enable.
With a commitment to fairness and the creation of green economy opportunities, we offer a way to deliver a visionary future for water and waste in Hout Bay, for both the formal and informal sectors. The development of a collaborative model for the delivery of services will enhance both efficiency and effectiveness by linking together the people of Hout Bay, government, and the NGO and business sector. Through this we seek to enhance the beauty that people treasure; while creating quality opportunities and social cohesion.
