The discussion touched on collaborations with both local authorities and communities, what place means and what ‘good’ place-based impact investing looks like. The discussion was followed by a short Q&A with the panel. Breakout rooms were then entered and conversations took place around the issues with buy-in for PBII and investing with impact or for impact.
