“Smart urbanisation must take a ‘whole society approach’, benefiting all vulnerable groups” UN Sustainable Development Knowledge Platform
Sustainable Development requires a fine balance between the socio-economic and environmental needs of communities, as well as growth aspirations of business. Inequality is a pressing concern globally and in South Africa, and given our current trajectory, it is likely to worsen rather than improve.
Accelerate Cape Town believes that the solution lies in shared value, which involves creating economic value in a way that also creates value for society by addressing its needs and challenges.
Our goal is to advance a sustained, economically viable region that supports the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals initiative.
