Another win for Cape Town – alongside its recent successful World Design Capital 2014 bid – is its selection as the city to receive the fifth Deutsche Bank Urban Age

The Urban Age Award recognises and celebrates creative solutions to problems and opportunities that face more than half the world’s population now living in cities. The award focuses on projects that benefit communities and local residents by improving their urban environments. It seeks to encourage citizens, policy-makers, private business and non-governmental organisations to take a proactive role in adopting shared responsibilities for the cities of the 21st century – mankind’s first truly ‘urban’ age.
