Ignisive presents at the City of Cape Town

 “If You Always Do What You've Always Done, You'll Always Get What You've Always Got.”

Thanks @cityofct Mayor @geordin.hill.lewis and Mayco member for Community Services and Health, @patriciavanderross …for taking the time to address the various NPOs/Forums leading various Street People Programmes/interventions.
It is definitely a step in the right direction to start pulling all stakeholders together more and we are always excited to see any efforts to drive collaborative solutions, as we know the solution does not just sit within one organisation or one entity.
We also know that challenges from one community to the next may vary in depth and degree…but not one is more superior than the next.
The tasks at hand cannot be underestimated, as the subject of effectively assisting people living on street is filled with various complexities and there’s ‘not one size that fits all’.
We have experienced what is possible when we get Businesses, Government Entities and Communities to collaborate (authentically).
We believe the majority of South Africans want a better, more effective country and way of life.
We work daily with the most passionate people and believe that, if our passion and purpose for creating a better country collides, we can literally achieve anything.
Change processes unfortunately do not happen overnight and definitely not through ‘osmosis’…it requires deliberate, strategic methodologies to effect well thought through (shared) outcomes.
It takes true leaders to acknowledge that they may not necessarily have all the answers and few have the strategic vision and ability to galvanise people and lean into the power of the collective… in a way that systematically works through change…
Change practices that supports getting buy-in, doesn’t write off or shy away from the most vocal citizens…but instead coverts them into their strongest allies…as the best agents of change.
We wish our leaders well as they tackle massive challenges…
We see the tremendous efforts already being made…
There’s a majority of citizens with you…who would do just about anything to see our country flourish…and our citizens heal from an onslaught of way too much trauma/troubles.

Collaborative meeting at Bay Hotel

Thanks so much to all stakeholders/key role players, from Camps Bay Community Policing Forum , Sea Point CID / CPF, City of Cape Town Reintegration, Law Enforcement and Department of Social Development, South African Police Service Camps Bay and Sea Point, Western Cape Street Children's Forum, The Homestead Projects for Street Children, ignisive - ignite inclusive change, Camps Bay & Clifton Ratepayers Association, for taking the time today to begin a collaborative journey of tackling one of the toughest challenges communities are trying to assist with….helping Children/Families away from streetlife.

Few will truly understand and appreciate the mammoth task and interventions it takes (behind the scenes) to get even just one child away from streetlife…so that they’re given the best chance of a better future.
While there are enormous systemic challenges, we are grateful when we can have dialogue to challenge processes, collectively think outside the box and begin co-creating a better future, that our children and communities urgently needs (and deserves).
A key, common thread, are the dangers of enabling children to remain on street and the detrimental knock on effects, not only for the child…but for us as city, even our country.

Children who are constantly supported to stay on streets, instead of school, faces an onslaught of exposure to substance abuse, trafficking, assault, criminal activities etc.
We urge communities to please help these teams tireless efforts and channel support to causes that helps move children off street, reintegrated with their families/into care facilities and engaged in school/sport/activities to keep them out of harms way.
Thank you to every community member, school, government entity/organization who does so much for our children…our PRIMARY investment in a brighter future. — with Fiona Bosch and
6 others
at The Bay Hotel.

Blue Flag Biodiversity webinars open for all Blue Flag members

As part of the Foundational for Environmental Education (FEE) GAIA 20:30 strategy for the next decade, a series of webinars focused on Biodiversity will be organised by the Blue Flag and Green Key teams in April and May.

Launched by FEE in 2021, the GAIA 20:30 strategy represents the organisation’s commitment to contribute to a more sustainable world. As part of this strategy, FEE will be focusing its resources for the next decade on three critical environmental increasing threats to our planet – climate change, biodiversity loss and environmental pollution.

In 2022, the GAIA 20:30 will protect global biodiversity through different actions: promoting sustainable management of the coastal zone, combating pollinator and insect loss, preserving existing and creating new natural areas, and finally raising awareness of efforts to remove invasive alien species.

Several initiatives will be held within the year dedicated to Biodiversity, including a Biodiversity Competition, a course, and four webinars, conducted in April and May. The webinars, developed in partnership between Green Key International and Blue Flag International teams, will focus on different aspects of biodiversity. The first webinar will be held on April 5th and the last one, conducted in May (date to be confirmed), can be particularly relevant for the Blue Flag national operators and members since they will explore the importance of biodiversity for coastal areas.

Focused on the Importance of Biodiversity to the Tourism Industry, the first webinar hosted on April 5th will raise questions as such:

  • What is biodiversity?

  • Why is it important for tourism?

  • What are the negative impacts of tourism on biodiversity?

More information will be shared in the upcoming weeks on the Blue Flag page and social media on how to sign up for the Biodiversity webinars.

Visit or for more information.
