Karl-Filip Coenegrachts

Karl-Filip is the director of citiesofpeople, an urban activist, a recovering bureaucrat and today an independent expert on strategies for people-centered future cities.

He has worked for the City of Ghent for 18 years. As Ghent’s Chief Strategy Officer he introduced a new and integrated way of long term thinking and planning and strategic intelligence on the city level, including new forms of citizen engagement and sustainable place-based urban renewal.
Based on his experience, he developed a concept for future cities – cities of people – that places people at the core of an evolution towards a warm city and society and is working with cities and urban stakeholders to implement this concept.
