Sustainable Durban

After Imagine Durban’s Sustainable City Exhibition and Good Practice book launch last week, I released there are many sustainability initiatives to be proud of in my city.  To mention but a few of my favourites:

The Markets of Warwick Tour

Warwick is regarded as a global example of inclusive urban planning.  The Markets Tour raises the visibility of the urban working poor – an essential component of our city and our humanity.

The Markets of Warwick Tour is an initiative of ASIYE ETAFULENI whose work with cardboard recyclers was showcased at the Sustainable City Exhibition.  Stay tuned for news of their soon-to-be-launched blog.

I heart market

A market of our city’s most talented and creative – from cupcakes to jewellery and everything in between.  Local is lekker.  And sustainable.

Sport and other extra mural activities are a luxury for the poor.  Through the PPI programme nearly 1000 underpriviledged children learn what it is to belong to a basketball team and to be a role model for their peers through lifeskills and leadership programmes.

Nothing says sustainable with as much style as a vintage something.
