Play advocate Scott MacKenzie - Our work in play

Video transcript

[Play advocate Scott MacKenzie speaking]

Hey I'm Scott from Sport New Zealand, and I work in the area of play.

Over the last three years we’ve been working quite quickly towards the ultimate game of preserving and enhancing play in New Zealand.

Three or four times in that last two years we've got together as a network of what we call play champions, or people that are passionate about play within the territorial authorities or councils environment. And we've been testing some ideas and thinking around how we can come together a lot closer as a collective to support the preservation and enhancement of play in our local communities.

Ultimately at the end of the day it's about better outcomes for young people in New Zealand. Cool.
