The Greater Muizenberg Community Map brings people from Muizenberg and Vrygrond together to share places that matter to them.

The main aim is to make resources, information and knowledge more accessible and visible. With this map, we can document local wisdom and identify nearby places that help us build more sustainable livelihoods.

We invite each and every one to collaborate and share information about the places that matter to you. Get involved by either contributing to the map, or providing your opinion by adding comments.

Amava Oluntu initiated this map and has facilitated the process of growing it with local residents thus far. It is an Open Source Platform that can be used by anyone who would like to use it.

The map aims to:
  • Share places that matter to us;
  • Document local history;
  • Identify nearby locations, events and activities;
  • Contribute information about an issue or list a need.
