This is Ginny, Vianca and Z students from Whitireia New Zealand. They come from China, the Philippines and Indonesia respectively. And I come from Lower Hutt - which is a little less exotic perhaps.
Sub Urban is working with the students on their post-graduate research project. They will be looking at the in's and outs of co-working and how this and other models of collaboration are supporting community-led economic development. In particular they will be looking at income streams and how these contribute to such spaces being economically sustainable.
This will be super useful for us here at Sub Urban to inform our development. And co-working is HUGE in Asia so I hope these students take away some very useful insights from this project that will be helpful to them in the future.
