Event Information

Welcome to the 5th episode of Season 11 of Productized Podcast. In this season, we are talking about the future of our cities. What if cities cared more about their digital products and services and treated their citizens like customers they want to retain? If the mayor would be the equivalent of the CEO, who would take the role of an eventual Chief Product Officer? More importantly, what transformations and improvements could this bring about for lives as citizens as a whole? This is the podcast where innovators, geeks, creators, and entrepreneurs, come to discuss impactful ideas.

In this episode, André will talk to Ksenia Ashrafullina. Ksenia is an activist, the Founder of Invisible City non-profit organization. Invisible City is a cultural app that turns smartphones into an up-to-date cultural agenda. Ksenia is helping emerging artists to perform more and get paid fairly. She is a co-founder of the civic movement Lisboa Possível for inclusive mobility in Lisbon. And she calls herself a “self-employed diplomat” for the virtual embassy of the wonderful Russia of the future in Portugal.

We are looking forward to this contentful and exciting podcast! We will cover many activism-related topics, such as:

  • Activism projects creation in Portugal;

  • Lisboa Possível and mobility improvement in Lisbon;

  • What difficulties do activists face?

  • What is the activism role in city policy?

And not only! Be sure to join our LIVE and engage in the discussion through your questions in the comments of the broadcast.
