Unequal City #UnequalCity

Our Unequal City campaign will redress the imbalance in access to South Africa's transport and infrastructure. Many young people still find themselves excluded from the majority of the access to information, employment opportunities and skills development. We are lobbying provincial and national government to change this.

Background

The spatial inequality issue was surgaced at a debate at the Marion Institute in Woodstock, Cape Town. The discussion ended up centering around issues of unequal access to the city in terms of housing and job opportunities. Many of the young people there spoke about how living far outside of the city in areas like Mitchells Plain, Gugulethu etc. meant that they spent far more on transport costs getting to and from their classes or entry-level jobs than their white counterparts and how this perpetuates inequality way past the end of Apartheid.
