Namji arrived from Seoul in February 2019 to start a year-long secondment with Social Life, working alongside the team to share knowledge and experience.
Namji comes to Social Life from Seoul Metropolitan Government’s Social Innovation Division. Most recently she has been working on the ‘Sharing City Seoul’ project and managing Share Hub, one of biggest sharing platforms in Korea.

In particular, she is interested in understanding mechanisms for community participation in design, and linking community design with universal design principles, both at the city and national level. Namji holds a BA in Computer Science and Electronics from the Catholic University of Korea.
