The last day of May marked the onset of winter for the port city of Cape Town but the cold winds also ushered in the arrival of 20 participants to the “NMT for Creating sustainable African Cities” Training workshop that was held at the University of Cape Town.
The engineering department of the University of Cape Town played host to the visitors and throughout the two-days critical areas of NMT planning and investment were explored by the participants and the lecture staff.
I believe that training like this is what will spearhead implementation & enforcement of cycling and walking policies across Africa. Just this one training course has so many different people from different fields and different countries. It is a great opportunity for us to share & learn what works and what doesn’t from each other
