Zakia Moulaoui shows us new perspectives and describes her work in changing the lives of those affected by homelessness. Her talk helps us think of the invisible people in our cities and see our cities and their people in different lights.

Zakia is from France and has been living in Scotland for 8 years where she has worked with local and international charities, mostly organisations working with homeless people. After working as Director of International Partner Development at the Homeless World Cup Foundation, a global network of street soccer projects, she is now an International Development Consultant.

She is also the Founder of Invisible Edinburgh, a Scottish social enterprise that trains local people who have experienced homelessness to become walking tour guides of their cities. They offer local and social tours, connecting tourists and locals with places that make the city what it is.

Zakia wants to create change around the stigma surrounding homelessness worldwide and bring people together, no matter their backgrounds, stories or problems.
