MIGUEL LUNA, PRINCIPAL

Miguel Luna is a leader in communication about watershed awareness & social and environmental justice issues with underserved and monolingual (Spanish-speaking) communities, and in empowering people with community-building skills to foster their participation in local and regional planning.  He founded Urban Semillas in 2006 to cultivate relationships among residents, their community-based organizations, businesses, elected officials, environmental organizations, academia, and government agencies. 


His prior experience includes service as the Tujunga Watershed Coordinator with “The River Project” where he expanded the community of interest in restoration of the Tujunga watershed through a strategic outreach on watershed management, environmental justice and smart-growth topics. Mr. Luna served as a Stream Restoration Specialist for Heal the Bay in 2004 and 2005 where he conducted technical water quality testing for the Malibu Watershed. Since 2007 Mr. Luna has created and executed several “Agua Universities”: youth-oriented six-week educational courses in which local and statewide experts interact with stakeholders on watershed planning issues specific to where they live.


Mr. Luna is sought after and respected locally, regionally and statewide for his expertise in working with diverse communities and for his ability to utilize community reconnaissance in order develop and implement effective outreach tools and community engagement mechanisms for grass-roots coalition building and consensus.


Mr. Luna currently serves on the Statewide Watershed Partnership Program and is a representative on the City of LA’s Proposition “O” Community Oversight Advisory Committee. He is a board member of the LA based non-profit CicLAvia and serves on the City of LA’s Pedestrian Advisory Committee.
