Rachel Phillips

Rachel Phillips is an accidental urbanist, and an advocate for regenerative 21st-century cities. While her professional background is centered in communications and organizational development, her international upbringing and lifelong love of cities have led her to become a student of urban resilience and creativity on six continents.

 

For the last decade, Rachel has played a key program and partnership development role in Mmofra Foundation’s Playtime in Africa initiative, based in Accra, Ghana. The Initiative champions child-friendly public spaces in Accra and other African cities, with a focus on environmental preservation and inclusive design.

 

As a fellow for Conscious Accra, Rachel hopes to highlight ideas, exchanges, and urban innovations from the African continent. She looks forward to sparking global conversations through the Centre for Conscious Design.
