TALK100 session 1

Urban Hacktivism
Thriving environments and unique experiences in and around the City of Cape Town are key ingredients for a future city and culture characterised by innovation, entrepreneurship and active, responsive citizens.
Traditionally hacktivism was the act of breaking into computer systems for politically or socially motivated purposes. Today, tech-savvy, socially-minded entrepreneurs are using hacking principles and mobile technology to solve urban problems and activate citizens.

Bulelwa Makalima-Ngewana, CEO of the Cape Town Partnership, joins urban designer Kirsten Wilkins and Mapaseka Dipale, business analyst, founder and CEO of NxtGen, to talk about hacking our urban environment to make it a better, safer, more inclusive and exciting place to be. The session moderator is Jodi Allemeier, collaborative urbanist and active citizen who wants to live in a city where all people are free.
