Degree in Law, knowledge in Dutch and urban legislation, becoming an urban planner, and of course enjoying Amsterdam!
Learning every day!
I obtained my Postgraduate Master in Urban and Environmental Policies at Carlos III University. Before this, I studied Law at Complutense University in Madrid, specializing in Environmental and Public Law.
Before finishing my degree I realized that my future will not be in a Justice Court and some courses related to environmental law, sustainable development and physical planning helped me to focus my career into the field of urban planning.
During my last years in Madrid I collaborated with the Urban Planning department of "Ecologistas en Acción", one of the most important Spanish environmental federation. Here my task was to advise to city councils on adapting their policies to environmental urban planning principles. During this period, I met great people who are inventing new concepts in Urban Planning while they experience current administrations insensitive about the social and environmental problems.
Since April 2012, I am in Netherlands, looking for different ways of understanding and creating our cities. I am in to PLAY for improving the public participation as an essential part of the planning.
