After some failed projects with the NGO I used to volunteer for, I realised my technical knowledge in architecture was not enough to understand the impact our interventions had in the broader society. Mundus Urbano gave me the opportunity to learn a more holistic approach towards urban development. The lessons learned in Darmstadt and Grenoble from both my lecturers and classmates help me today facing my daily challenges in Johannesburg, where I recently started working for Slum Dwellers International.
