For our city’s storytellers, influencers and innovators
Hot Off the Presses!
The award-winning book returns - updated, revised and expanded!
The mutual love affair between people and their place is one of the most powerful influences in our lives, yet rarely thought of in terms of a relationship. As cities come to think of themselves as engaged in a relationship with their residents, and residents begin to consider their emotional connections with their places, we open up new possibilities in community, social and economic development by including the most powerful of motivators – the human heart – in our toolkit of place-making. Here we will explore what makes cities lovable, what motivates ordinary people to do extraordinary things for their places and how some cities are using that energy to fill in the gaps that “official” city makers have left as resources disappeared. Meet the amazing people who are truly in love with their cities and learn how they are the key resource to the future development of our communities.
