Congratulations to Cape Town for being selected as the 2014 World Design Capital and congratulations to Partners for Possibility for being chosen as one of the projects to be showcased in the WDC 2014!


With more than half of the world’s population living in urban areas, design has become an increasingly fundamental tool in all levels of public and private development – helping us all live life to our full potential!


The World Design Capital is a global initiative acknowledging innovative cities and that celebrates the merits of design. Held every two years, it seeks to highlight the accomplishments of cities that are truly leveraging design as a tool to improve the social, cultural and economic life of cities, throughout a yearlong programme of design-related events.


WDC 2014 will be the fourth of its kind, with past winners being Torino, Seoul and Helsinki.


2014 is the year of the Mother City! Cape Town has successfully won the bid and will host the 2014 event. It will feature Cape Town’s accomplishments in attracting and promoting innovative design, as well as highlighting our success in urban revitalisation strategies.


2014 will prove to be an exciting year for Cape Town, for all the wonderful and creative inhabitants of the city, and also for all the projects that have been selected to be showcased in the WDC programme.


The Partners for Possibility project has been acknowledged as one of those projects that shows innovative thinking and design in tackling one of the most complex challenges we face in South Africa! We are proud to be a part of this exciting process!

Congratulations to all the projects included in the programme for 2014! Lookout for updates on PfP’s journey in WCD 2014!
