IN PLACE is an online platform by Place Leaders Asia Pacific dedicated to sharing knowledge, experience, projects, programs, opinions, theory and research for all voices involved in the conversation of ‘Place’. 

Our third issue explores ‘Values in Place’. As professionals taking a ‘place’ based approach, we are connected by a common outcome, putting people first.   Regardless of the sector we represent, we are aligned with a set of ‘values’ or ‘principles’ that drive our action.    This issue highlights some of these values including: diversity, adaptability, inclusivity and accessibility. 

Our second issue, ‘Voices in Place’, explores the connection between civic identity, culture, and place. In the spirit of Jane Jacobs, we’re reminded that as place-making professionals, regardless of your location or sector, people are at the heart of our existence. 

This inaugural issue titled ‘Connected in Place’ showcases the variety of disciplines involved in the ever evolving identity of ‘Place Leadership’ and inspires us in imagining what the future of our places could be.
