The Urban Activist incites a genuine
conversation about cities by putting people and
their local actions at the heart of our stories.

Every week, The Urban Activist publishes a story on a local urban action to celebrate its positive impact.

Our mission is to connect urban practitioners across different disciplines in administrations, academia and any other organization with voices on the ground, towards urban progress.

The best way to follow The Urban Activist is by getting our monthly newsletter and on Instagram.


Hola! I’m Susana, the creator behind The Urban Activist. I’m combining my two passions in life -cities and social impact- in order to bare awareness about urban activists and actions with the potential to lead to big change and urban progress in cities.

After a long international exposure in the corporate finance world, I am exploring how responsible businesses can play a noble role in society towards more inclusive, democratic and greener cities. I am fluent in Spanish, English and German. Learning Arabic.
