You also agree to inform us if you have a criminal record or if there is any reason you are not able to be involved in activities with children. Volunteers should be over 16 years old. There is no payment for volunteering with Open Streets Cape Town. Where possible we make a transport stipend available for those using public transport to get to our activities.
In case you haven't seen it before, we have a manifesto that guides us:
OPEN STREETS MANIFESTO
Streets could be much more than they are ...
By embracing the concept of Open Streets, we can all create shared spaces that embody respect and help bridge the social and spatial divides of our city.
We believe streets should
- enable safer and more cohesive communities
- provide platforms for creative expression of local cultures and values
- be places for recreation and social interaction
- contribute to job creation and local economic activity
- provide choice in how we move around the city
Friends of Open Streets support these principals and will lobby to change the way people use, perceive and experience streets.
