Do you have an idea that could change your city? Enter the Ideas World Cup today

Ideas World Cup is being hosted in Cape Town on Friday 21 April. Shelley Finch, Project Manager of the Ideas World Cup says the world cup is a global brainstorming competition.

We'll be competing against 22 cities across the world to generate the most ideas in one day.

Finch says they have set five guideline questions to help people generate ideas but are not obliged to stick to them.

If you have a challenge or an issue that you experience everyday and have an idea to solve it, we want to hear about it.

Shelley Finch, Project Manager of the Ideas World Cup

These are guideline questions Finch says will be used to guide the participants:

How might we ensure Cape Town’s water security? How can we ease traffic congestion? In what ways might we prevent fires in informal settlements? In what ways might we provide affordable housing in the CBD and surrounding suburbs? How can we build our city’s capacity for social entrepreneurship?

What we are saying is suspend judgement, just give us your ideas.

Shelley Finch, Project Manager of the Ideas World Cup

Finch explains a group of experienced facilitators will collect and sift through the ideas, find common themes and present the ideas to stakeholders of the city of Cape Town. The event is open to people of all ages.

CapeTalk welcomes all comments that are constructive, contribute to discussions in a meaningful manner and take stories forward.

However, we will NOT condone the following:

  • Racism (including offensive comments based on ethnicity and nationality)
  • Sexism
  • Homophobia
  • Religious intolerance
  • Cyber bullying
  • Hate speech
  • Derogatory language
  • Comments inciting violence.

We ask that your comments remain relevant to the articles they appear on and do not include general banter or conversation as this dilutes the effectiveness of the comments section.

We strive to make the CapeTalk community a safe and welcoming space for all.

CapeTalk reserves the right to: 1) remove any comments that do not follow the above guidelines; and, 2) ban users who repeatedly infringe the rules.

Should you find any comments upsetting or offensive you can also flag them and we will assess it against our guidelines.
