​Informal settlements in urban environments are here to stay, and civic society and especially municipalities need to be flexible, creative and innovative to deal with this new reality. In this Science Café Stellenbosch at Woordfees 2020, Jannie Hofmeyer talks to Dr Leanne Seeliger and Paul Roviss Khambule about their project in Enkanini and how they are working with Stellenbosch Municipality to find solutions for the many challenges facing these communities.

 Science Café Stellenbosch is an initiative of the Faculty of Science at Stellenbosch University to promote the discussion of scientific issues in a language that everyone can understand. Follow us on Facebook to stay up to date with future talks, or join our mailing list by sending an email to
