About Me

My name is Laura Puttkamer and I am an urban development specialist from Germany. I see myself as a facilitator and communicator, offering you this platform to read more about participation and showing many different approaches to successful participation and modes of urban development in cities all over the globe. I am happy to help you implement participatory methods in your own city – get in touch to hire me as a consultant!

I currently distribute my time between Hamburg and Mexico City, and have spent time living in Ethiopia, India, the UK and Brasil. My Master’s degree was called “Global Urban Development and Planning”. Since completing it in 2017, I am active as an urban journalist, consultant on participation in urban development and writer. Find me on Instagram or hire me as a writer via my writing service Texts and the City!

Enjoy reading and participating!
