Why are we doing walking tours in African cities? To help us see and engage with small scale urbanism and urban tinkering. – The Nature of Cities

Urban tinkering suggests that we should look at current city #infrastructure, #policy, and #design, and explore how these existing structures can be used in diversified ways, which help adapt to social, economic, and ecological change.

Recently, we took part in a walking workshop hosted by #CollaborativeProgramme partner ICLEI's Urban Natural Assets for Africa programme. The walking workshop in Kisumu, #Kenya allowed participants to understand the city first-hand explore ways how urban tinkering could be implemented.
