Monthly Liesbeek River Cleaning Day, Saturday 1st of July 2017
When: Saturday, 1 July, 8:30am to 3:30pm (First Saturday of every month)
Where: Meet in the parking lot in front of The Wild Fig.
What: We will be cleaning the stretch running from the N2 to the River Club.
Who: Kari Cousins will be supervising & sponsoring the clean.
Drop in any time for an hour or two to help us clean, but do remember to bring gloves and boots that are up to the challenge! It's a large space, if you don't see us right away; rest assured, we're somewhere along the banks getting dirty.
If you can't spare the time yourself this Saturday, consider sponsoring someone to clean on your behalf. For R180 you can co-sponsor a clean, effectively paying someone else to do your dirty work at our next clean.
If you have any questions on the day, feel free to contact, Kari Cousins on 078 008 0464
The Development Action Group (DAG), in partnership with us (the TRUP Association) is co-hosting 11 days of "Change by Design" workshops with Architecture Sans Frontières-UK involving international architects committed to assisting communities articulate their visions for the area.
The 11 day workshop begins next week, _Monday, 26th June 2017_, and uses participatory design methods as a tool for advocacy and socio-spatial transformation in urban spaces.
The workshops see participants (mix of local and international architects/ planners and CBOs) engaging and working in collaboration with grassroots organisations, local NGOs, governmental agencies, and members of the public involved in land rights issues, urban settlement upgrading, and housing rights.
One of the project areas will be Oude Molen Eco Village and Maitland Garden Village.
We would like to encourage all interested and affected parties concerned with the future of these areas to engage in this process.
Please indicate you availability to share your local knowledge and dreams by being available on Thursday 29 June, Saturday 1st July and Tuesday 4th July to engage with the architects throughout these days: all day, late afternoon after work, and evenings are also acceptable!

Sharing this event in case you are interested in attending.
The purpose of the meeting is to get feedback and new ideas for the different aspects of the business plan (security, cleansing, etc.). The idea is not to make decisions at the meeting, but to identify possible changes that can be investigated further.
The Two Rivers Urban Park is an area of natural green space right in the middle of Cape Town, at the confluence of the Liesbeek and Black Rivers in Observatory.
The area is presently earmarked for commercial, retail and business development.
