Planning for the future is building on history and culture. Planning for future cities is planning for people and society. People are inseparable from history and culture: people are culture.
A cultural infrastructure is essential in society. However, it is regularly not the infrastructural investment in African cities one thinks of first. Via business cases from Zanzibar, Sao Tomé, Rwanda and other locations, the workshop aims to show the benefits and profitability of investment in heritage and culture. The workshop will stimulate participants to find similar opportunities in their own local context.
