Cape Town of tomorrow
09 April 2009
At the Alumni Leadership Forum on 6 April, UCT graduate, strategy consultant and futurist Guy Lundy painted a picture of Cape Town in 2030 - bustling, thriving, efficient, green, and a drawcard for international business. In his talk, Lundy, CEO of Accelerate Cape Town, talked of that business initiative's vision to "develop and implement a long-term vision for sustainable, inclusive economic growth" for the Cape region. Their vision is to turn Cape Town into the "Southern Tiger" by 2030. "We need to take that idea of Cape Town as Africa's global city and turn it into a branding and marketing plan," said Lundy.
