Walter Weingaertner is a mechanical engineer graduated at UFSC Federal University of Santa Catarina, with experience at the prestigious RWTH-Aachen and Fraunhofer Institute.

After years working in companies of this industry, Walter rescued his personal experiences of childhood and adolescence in Germany and began to question the model of the city in which we live. In search of cities with more quality of life and integration with nature, he started to coordinate discussion groups on the urban theme. Recognized as a potential discoverer of the city, he proposed various parks, itineraries and paths of non-motorized mobility and leisure, as well as valuing natural, edified and cultural heritage. With his accurate eye, Walter puts the richnesses of the city in focus, through photographs and videos.
