Urbanistas is a women-led network for crowdsourcing support for projects and ideas about making everyday life better in cities.




Who are we?

We are a network of disruptive and collaborative women whose approach to social innovation is based on the value of everyday urban life and experience. We thrive on the comfortable chaos of cities and want to use this as the starting point for creating places that work better for everyone.

We believe that as businesses and cities are becoming increasingly social, women are best placed to lead and influence new ways of thinking and doing.

Urbanistas is a place where women crowdsource support to get things done. Through these actions we will change the face of an industry that is dominated by conventional thinking.

We create a space for women to try out their ideas and believe that the best way to start is by starting.
