The Greater Tygerberg Partnership
The purpose of the Greater Tygerberg Partnership (GTP) as an alliance partnership is related to the aspirational statement:
“KNOWLEDGE FOR THE CITY: FROM AMBITION TO ACTION: TURNING POTENTIAL INTO PROSPERITY”
The GTP aims to inclusively facilitate an innovative approach to the management, development and promotion of the broadly demarcated area of the Greater Tygerberg, situated within the City of Cape Town, utilising a facilitative knowledge based leadership and coordinating partnership approach for the benefit of the citizens and inhabitants of the area.
“To make their cities attractive places to live in, civic authorities need to harness the energies of all the individuals and businesses flocking into their metropolises. They need to foster the innovative spirit of social entrepreneurs who can step in with new solutions to meet demands for services and infrastructure. They must increase their political clout by forming productive partnerships with the private sector and civil society groups.”
