Wendy Hoddinott shares her life journey in this episode and what has led her to focus on colloborative design of our shared spaces, as well as working on heritage related projects.  We also talk about the Gather Foundation which is a charity she founded which has a unique focus using its Place Cadets program: "Gather Foundation empowers Ōtautahi’s tamariki and rangatahi to co-design outdoor environments in their schools, neighbourhoods and communities", and "Wendy works with Gather Foundation to develop child-centric design programmes, drawing on children and young people’s knowledge and lived experiences, so that the final outcome is a reflection of their aspirations, rather than adult assumptions of the places they want to live and play."
