Place-based approaches talks and conversations

Watch videos of speakers discussing place-based approaches.

One of the most important ways to improve the way we work in place, and help place-based approaches across Victoria have their greatest impact, is to capture and share our lessons.

This enables staff from across the Victorian Government, communities and practitioners to together grow our knowledge and accelerate practice.

In March 2020, we spent a day with international place-based expert Mark Cabaj to learn and share everything place-based through a series of events and interviews. See the videos below.

  • Mark Cabaj identifies three circumstances when a place-based approach is not suitable, and five benefits of place-based approaches.

  • Mark Cabaj discusses the relationship between place-based approaches and broader system-level change, and why each has an important role in achieving lasting outcomes.

  • Mark Cabaj explains how to adapt and learn while delivering in place and cites international examples of best-practice in place-based work.

  • Mark Cabaj explores the mindsets and practices that will enable governments to work more effectively with communities in place.
