E-Fest Cape Town
Go Green Africa!
On 25 February 2023 Cape Town hosted the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship Cape Town E-Prix event for the first time in sub-Saharan Africa.
The global event, and its supporting 10-day E-Fest, served as a celebration of Go Green Africa, a shared mission founded by organizations committed to playing a meaningful role in helping to accelerate Africa’s transition to a “Green Economy” in a just and inclusive way.
This is an invitation to join Go Green Africa in delivering the first chapter of this transformational story and help us to manifest a lasting legacy that will not only transform South Africa and our continent but also serve as a platform which Partners can leverage to demonstrate their commitment to playing an important role in driving this transition.
