Check out the new, interactive Cape Town Green Map - an essential guide for visitors and residents to the eco-friendly destinations, companies, organisations, activities and much more in and around the city of Cape Town.
An excellent new resource, funded by the City of Cape Town as one of the projects in the Green Goal 2010 Action Plan [pdf 1MB] - the programme to reduce the environmental impact and increase the socio-economic benefits of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
It includes green tips and provides opportunities for anyone to suggest additions tothe map. They will (when last I heard) also be producing some print versions of the map closer to the time of the World Cup in 2010.
You can register via the site to be a part of their volunteer network to grow the content and reach of the green map over time - a positive legacy of the World Cup.
[full disclosure: I was co-author of the Green Goal 2010 Action Plan, but did not have any direct role in creating the CT Green Map]
Some five years into the life of Afrika T, I now find myself unable to keep up with contributions at a level that I and you have come to expect from this blog. Partly this is because of other activities in responsible tourism (see example here, and another here), partly from other projects in sustainability (see examples here and here), and partly for reasons that are more personal.
I am certainly still active online and in responsible travel, so feel free to comment on existing posts here, to follow me on Twitter, and to note what I've been reading online via Delicious. I also hope to return to Afrika T, so am not bringing the blog to a halt, just declaring a hiatus of indefinite duration...
Thank you for your support over the years, and, if you're a newcomer to the site, may it still prove valuable.
