Open Design Afrika Wetopia Academy

“Making Cities Together” in Cape Town

Open Design Afrika (ODA) is very proud to launch the first Wetopia Academy in October 2019 where a diverse pool of city makers and change makers will unite to collectively build new, inclusive and more prosperous ecosystems that can benefit the greater good of our people.

Lack of empathy and an authentic connection and understanding of other cultures and people hinders collaboration, progress and impact that’s needed to stimulate systemic change, social cohesion and nation building so that people can unite to build more resilient and thriving communities and cities.

Conceptualised and curated by Joke Quintens and Suné Stassen from Open Design Afrika, the ODA Wetopia Academy is a learning programme for active citizens, change-makers and policymakers who are serious about creating real change.
