The last UrbanA Community Conversations (CoCo) was about Feminist perspectives for sustainable just cities (July 21 2020). Sara Ortiz Escalante, a sociologist and urban planner with the Barcelona based cooperative Col·lectiu Punt 6 (Collective Point 6) gave a talk to 70 participants. Participants also shared personal insights and examples from their communities about this topic. The video of that #UrbanACoCo presentation is available and the related blog post outlines[1]:

Historically, European urban planning has predominantly been in the hands of homogeneous groups of men. Although in the last decades the diversity of actors involved in urban planning has increased, many of the urban spaces we live in and interact with are not designed to address the needs of, for example, women, girls, people with non-binary identity, immigrants, ethnic minorities or the elderly.
