About #

We are pleased to invite you to apply for an exciting, interdisciplinary workshop exploring urban inequalities and transport accessibility in Cape Town. This workshop is aimed at post-graduates and recent graduates (0-5 years) in urban related disciplines such as Transportation, Geography, Urban Planning and Architecture.

The aim of this workshop is to deep dive into existing and potential urban challenges faced by individuals and communities in Cape Town, particularly in relation to land use and transportation development. As part of the workshop we will brainstorm and discuss strategies to address these issues. PhD Researcher Ruth Nelson will share her latest research produced in conjunction with her colleagues from the Delft University of Technology on spatial distributive justice for urban planning. Don’t miss this important opportunity to learn, share ideas, connect with others and have your voice heard on these important topics!

Drinks and light eats will be provided.
