Amaia Celaya Alvarez
Consultant and Project Manager in Barcelona, España
Think about the real needs, propose from knowledge and achieve it through passion.
Master in urban planning, architecture, and NOHA master- International Cooperation and Humanitarian Action -. I’m a tireless reader, still with many things to discover and a learnaholic. I grew up in a small town in the sunny and windy desert landscape of Bardenas Reales, Spain. I worry about how we're inhabiting the world and leaving people in the midst of their difficulties. I like seeing how good proposals make people live better within buildings and cities. I’m into resilience, sustainability, accountability, networking, urban planning, architecture, knowledge, sun and bathing in every sea. I believe in hard work, I wish to be happy doing things that fill my soul, and I trust people.
