Javiera Canales Valenzuela

My principal interests are the development of sustainable urban systems that improve quality of life for people and work in harmony with the natural environment through the utilization of clean and renewable energy, the application of technology, and the design of circular economic systems. I am particularly inclined to work with low income communities and informal settlements on projects that are focused on tearing down inequality and improving living conditions in vulnerable neighborhoods. I would love to be able to strengthen rights to housing, basic services, health and education through the design, development and construction of integrated, equal, sustainable cities.
