About Me


My name is Laura and I am from Germany. I understand myself as a facilitator and communicator, offering you this platform and showing many different approaches to successful participation and modes of urban development in cities all over the globe. But most of all, I want to enter a dialogue with as many of you as possible!


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 and writer. Find me on Instagram or hire me as a writer via my little business Texts and the City!

Get in touch to tell me more about your city, and if you are interested in joining and/or contributing, this is your neigbourhood!

Enjoy reading and participating!
