Cielo María Holguín Ramírez
Cielo is a community leader of the Moravia neighbourhood in Medellín and co-founder of the Urban Oasis Foundation. She is driving change in the neighbourhood and in the city by helping to generate spaces for meetings and conversation between leaders of the neighbourhood.
Cielo is focused on learning about social urbanism because its principles are based on processes of co-production of different social actors (public, private, academic and civil society) for the integral urban interventions in neighbourhoods, in a bottom up and then top-down way. Her dream is to open up space for other people in the neighbourhood, especially young people, who want to study but sometimes don’t have opportunities. She wants to create opportunities for them, diversifying professionals in the urban territory.
