Those keeping up with World Urban Parks social media may have noticed a change in our Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn posts. Sandra Murillo-Morales, a landscape and urban designer based on Toronto, Canada, has taken over from Jenn Halliday as the social media coordinator.
We are indebted to Jenn, based in Christchurch, New Zealand, who was responsible for setting up our Facebook account, developing and integrating our social media efforts, and coordinating posts from August 2016 through to January 2017.
If you would like to know a little more about Sandra, she was trained as an architect in Colombia. Her keen interest in sustainable urban planning led her to achieve a Bachelor in Land Planning/Environmental Design degree, and a Masters of Environment and Sustainability degree in Canada.
She has experience in the public and private sector working in parks planning and design, landscape master planning, and urban design and planning. She believes that urban park systems are fundamental infrastructure, necessary to ensure ecologically and socially equitable city planning.
