Cape Town Tourism sponsors Cape Town Green Map
The Cape Town Green Map (www.capetowngreenmap.co.za) is a 2010 Green Goal legacy project aimed at encouraging visitors to the Mother City to make greener lifestyle choices.
Cape Town Tourism fully supports this important initiative in view of our commitment to responsible tourism.
The website offers a wealth of information about Cape Town’s extensive sustainable resources and options.
A printed Cape Town Green Map will be published in October 2009. This will be a useful reference guide and keepsake specifically aimed at visitors. It will also be included in room packs for the guests and media at the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ Final Draw in December.
As one of only a few world cities located within a national park, Cape Town has much to celebrate and show.
