Julia Miranda Londoño

Julia Miranda Londoño is a Law graduate from the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana with postgraduate studies in Environmental Law from Universidad Externado de Colombia. She has also worked as litigating attorney and environmental law lecturer at the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana.

She has ample experience and knowledge of environmental topics, transcendental to Colombia as a mega diverse country. She was chief of the Environmental Management Consulting Office of Bogota’s Instituto de Desarrrollo Urbano (IDU). Subsequently, as General Director of the city’s Departamento Técnico Administrativo del Medio Ambiente (today Secretaría Distrital de Ambiente), she faced many challenges in urban environmental matters such as the creation of the Capital District’s Environmental Management Plan and the inclusion of environmental topics in the city’s Land Management Plan. In this position, she strengthened control and surveillance of industrial activities while also promoting clean production and business improvement programs. She also contributed to the consolidation of the Main Ecological Structure of Bogota, as a conservation strategy in urban ecosystems.

She was chosen among the 30 leaders, in the 2014 Best Leaders of Colombia Award given by Semana magazine and the Fundación Liderazgo y Demorcacia, whose work in the arena of the public, the community, the local, regional, national and international contributed to the development of Colombian society during that year. Within this group, she was also awarded the statuette to the top 10 leaders along with Nairo Quintana, Shakira Mebarack, Claudia López, Maurice Armitage, Clara López, Elsa Noguera, Rafael Pardo, el padre Cyrillus Swinne and Nacho Gómez.
