In this episode we chat to Heba Elhanafy, an urban planner, researcher, and developer who has worked on city issues in Egypt and various countries across the MENA region.

We talk about her shift from architecture to urban planning in pursuit of her mission to make cities more sustainable places for people to live. She shares what she now knows about making a difference and the greater need for design thinking in how we build and develop cities and communities.

Heba also talks to us about charter cities and how they could enhance people’s living standards, fuel economic growth, and ultimately help their communities navigate crises such as COVID19—through improved governance.
