Introducing our Global Correspondent Fabiola Mogrovejo!
In January 2022 we launched the Global Walkability Correspondents Network, as a way to build solidarity among walkability advocates around the world and continue to create media on sustainable mobility and urbanism.
We are happy to welcome Fabiola as a Global Correspondent to our growing network of individuals who are passionate walkability advocates.
I am Fabiola, an Ecuadorian living in Italy who loves to explore cities. I graduated with an MSc in Sustainable Architecture and Landscape Design at Politecnico di Milano. I have worked as a landscape design assistant in The Netherlands and now I will start working in urban and mobility planning in a Milan-based office. I have lived, experienced and enjoyed different cities and I’m looking forward to continue exploring more, understand the dynamics of cities and work towards more accessible, walkable, sustainable and equitable cities.
I am from Loja, Ecuador. I live in Piacenza, Italy and I have lived in San Sebastian, Spain and Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Where I live there are some issues regarding public transport accessibility, the lack of a proper bike network and the lack of sidewalk maintenance (most of the sidewalks are not useful for disabled people). It is noticeable that car space is more important than pedestrian space.
Because I feel I can do and work for something I believe is a human right: the fact that a person can easily reach their daily activities by walking, biking or on proper and accessible public transport is a must in every city. I think that being part of a network of people who share a similar passion and come from different backgrounds and cities can be so enriching not only for my personal development but also professional.
Fabiola is an Architect and Urban Planner, she has a Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture and an MSc in Sustainable Architecture and Landscape Design at Politecnico di Milano. She is passionate about walkability, accessibility and proximity in urban planning.
