Join the learning community

Using 'place' helps practitioners reach beyond traditional systems to invite multiple perspectives and unite people around shared ambitions.

Why join?

The Place-based Systems Change Community of Practice is open to practitioners of place-based work, at any scale. Funders are invited to join events when their attendance will not limit practitioner conversations. While some conversations are private, we are committed to sharing the learning we generate with anyone who is interested in place-based systemic change.

Join to:

  • Share experiences with around 200 place-based practitioners, funders and researchers
  • Get tools and advice for your place-based project from guest speakers
  • Attend free to join, bi-monthly, online meetings

The next meeting

Funder-practitioner power dynamics

The next meeting will be online, on the 5th July 12:30-14:00. It will focus on the topic of funder-practitioner power dynamics; how we talk about it, what might need to change and how we can make that change happen.

The challenges and complexities of power dynamics regularly emerge as critical factor in navigating place-based systems change. We welcome both funders and practitioner to this discussion.

Please register for the next meeting on the 5th July 12:30-14:00 via Zoom here.
