Futurecasting
Cape Town

The Futurecasting Cape Town series, convened by the City of Cape Town’s Resilience Department with support from the Western Cape Economic Development Partnership (EDP) provides an opportunity for all sectors to model the future around critical issues facing Cape Town and influence decisions that will reflect shared values and drive innovation to contribute to a common inclusive and resilient future.

The series underscores a key element of the City of Cape Town’s Resilience Strategy, which aims to encourage participation in urbanisation solutions, access to shared knowledge and expertise and the ability to tap into the inherent economic opportunities inherent in rapid urbanisation and technological transformation.

What is Futurecasting?

Futurecasting is a well-established approach to model the future and anticipate changes in a sector or society in the coming 10 to 15 years. It combines past patterns and trends with current insights and includes futures thinking to help shape the future and mitigate any possible risks.
