Accolades like this remain of critical importance to this administration as part of our efforts to increase tourism numbers around the year. The economic injection that comes with a thriving tourist industry is crucial if much needed jobs are to be created for the residents of Cape Town.
‘This award is particularly significant this year as we not only celebrate 20 years of democracy but also as Cape Town takes its title as the World Design Capital for 2014. This title will see design being used to fundamentally change the everyday lived reality of communities around the city, looking particularly at sustainable and innovative design solutions for those that are most vulnerable in our city’, said Councillor Pascoe.
According to the New York Times article, Cape Town is “a place to meditate on freedom, and the creative life that followed”.
