Keynote Speaker: Peter Kageyama

Peter Kageyama speaks about emotional engagement with PLACES – cities, towns, villages, schools and neighborhoods. Peter talks about how to create the set of conditions where love is more likely to happen and how to encourage people to go from saying they love a place to actually doing something for that place.

Peter’s latest book, The Emotional Infrastructure of Places, explores how we create emotional attachments and connections to our places and to each other, which in turn allows us to take on the biggest and most complex problems facing our societies today.
