Discover Joburg's nooks and crannies in a whole new light with Walk My Jozi

The Johannesburg Development Agency has organised the “Walk My Jozi” weekend coming up on 19-20 May to allow residents to discover new things about their neighbourhoods, and discover the heritage, art, and food of each area.

Bookings are essential for community members to join in.

702's Azania Mosaka spoke to Douglas Cohen, Executive Manager for Strategy and Planning at the Johannesburg Development Agency.

Johannesburg is full of nooks and crannies, communities and community leaders who are doing amazing things... I am hoping that we are facilitating something that will become more frequent.

Douglas Cohen, Executive Manager for Strategy and Planning at JDA

Just the process of walking, it creates opportunities for a new interaction, you might never see that person again but it is a shared experience and that is something that happens when 30 to 40 new people are exploring an area together.

Douglas Cohen, Executive Manager for Strategy and Planning at JDA

The walks explore Joburg neighbourhoods including Hillbrow, Orange Grove, Noordgesig, Diepsloot, and Alexandra.
