    0032 - A Legacy of Violence Plastics Dimentia and Business

    We have a legacy of violence in our suburbs that needs healing. How can we do this. Two men, one a Khoi Muslim and the other a white pastor, are desperately working to save the youth of Ocean View. Time is running but they see hope where others see hopelessness.

    0031 - Can Business Work in Muizenberg?

    0031 - Can Business Work in Muizenberg?

    Muizenberg hosted a business event called "Gateway to Muizenberg : Business for Change". Another business event, networking opportunity or get together? I thought it was just another one. But, what I did learn is that community collaboration is not exclusive but inclusive. Even if there are other initiatives we need to keep working together to build our community.

    The guest speaker, Steven Harris from 75 Harrington Street, shared some of his experiences in collaborating with other businesses in the Cape Town CBD. He emphasised collaboration and community building to see problems overcome and the community developed both socially and economically.

    Initiated by Inez Arendse and hosted by Claudia Braude at the Space@South we experienced a get together of nearly 60 business people who all want to see growth and development in Muizenberg. We chatted to Steven, Inez and Claudia about what they see as an outcome of working together as businesses.

    0030 - Celebrating Madiba in Muizenberg

    0030 - Celebrating Madiba in Muizenberg

    We celebrate Nelson Mandela's birthday as a community in this episode and what a celebration. We have had so many people involved across the greater Muizenberg area and surrounds. It's heartwarming to see what people are doing to remember this great man and how he has motivated people to give back to their communities.

    The numbers 67 and 100 have appeared in many forms, giving time in multiples of 67 or 100, making donations to that effect as well and just having a whole day of serving and fun. What an encouragement to see people serving just for the joy of giving to those less fortunate. Having a community catch a vision and then take it to the next level was gratifying to see. Let's hope we can get people to continue this not only one day but every day into the future.

    We have a quick look at the latest False Bay Echo and chat about the issue of the regulation of solar power in our homes across the city. There are both pros and cons to this new regulation. The other is a good news story from GoodLuck an electronic pop band who are starting a studio initiative in the community of Capricorn. This will be one of a kind in South Africa right here on our doorstep.
