Objective:


The STS methodology prompted a shared vision based on partnerships with a wide range of stakeholders, to promote mutually supportive integrated interventions, and sustainable systemic transformation, focussed on creating a safe and conducive environment for children in the inner City and particularly at the Old Drill Hall, a heritage site and space for NGO intervention for transformation and development in Johannesburg.

Partners:


Our clients for this project were Jo’burg Child Welfare, and we supported the recruitment of a diverse range of City stakeholders including local councillors, the metropolitan police, the Heritage department, urban management, roads, refuse removal and more, as well as NGOs, community members and business.

Process:


The vision of What it Looks Like When it’s Fixed was articulated as for the Best Life for Every Child in the inner city. It comprised a diverse range of outcomes, including infrastructure, service delivery, a culture of caring in and for the environment, support networks, safe and reliable transport, regulation and management of informal traders, waste management, safe and clean toilets and much more. The systemic and complex nature of the vision necessitated collaboration between a range of partners to achieve sustainable outcomes. While some of the facets of the vision were within the mandate of Jo’burg Child Welfare, many of them were the sole mandate of the local government. In response to the opportunity that Jo’burg Child Welfare represented to support the City in achieving a range of its mandates in partnership with civil society, the City engaged on a number of operational and strategic levels. The vision was aligned with the Roadmap for Inner City Transformation, a planning document to promote sustainable and systemic inner city development.
