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

What does the cost-of-living crisis mean for place-based systems change work?

12:30-14:00, 1st March


Place-based systems change work requires a focus on the long-term, a deep understanding of the local system and listening and adaptation as that system changes.  At the next community of practice meeting, we will come together to discuss how to maintain a long-term systemic view during an ongoing crisis. 

On 1 March we’ll share everyone’s reflections on how to maintain that long-term systemic view when the cost-of-living crisis is making it increasingly challenging to think beyond delivery and response.
