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

Our next community of practice meeting takes place on 25 October, 12.30-14:00.

The topic emerged from our discussions about the potential of co-design to rebalance funder-practitioner power dynamics. We will explore how co-design and co-production can support funding for place-based systems change.

Join us if you’d like to share ideas and learning about how these participatory approaches can shift power in places.
