It’s not hard to fall in love with Cape Town – just ask readers of the New York Times, TripAdvisor and the Telegraph, who’ve consistently rated it as one of the best holiday destinations in the world. And now we’re gunning for a new accolade that will position the city as both loveable and sustainable.
The World Wildlife Fund’s “We Love Cities” campaign is looking to hang this title of “loveable and sustainable” around the neck of one of city from 14 countries around the world, including the likes of Stockholm, Chicago, Seoul and Rio De Janeiro.
The winner of the We Love Cities title will be walking away with more than just a token award – it will be an acknowledgement from the world’s most prominent wildlife and environment fund that the city in question is doing their part for the environment.
Cape Town is a very worthy contender. The city pays very careful attention to the environment and sustainability, guided by a comprehensive climate change action plan. Likewise, Cape Point too has introduced a number of initiatives to help offset carbon footprints and ensure sustainability. And as one of the world’s most dramatic and recognisable natural landmarks, everyone at Cape Point is working together to ensure that it stays that way for many years to come.
Cape Town needs your vote to win the We Love Cities campaign. Visit welovecities.org/capetown, or Tweet using the #welovecapetown hashtag, to vote, and ensure that we rise to the top of the list of the world’s must-visit sustainable cities.
