Following the National Commission’s summit on place, a newly-published GGI illumination digs into some of the questions raised. These were its conclusions:

- Organisations need to give up their power for the greater good for place to take shape and have the desired impact.
- There should be agreement across the public sector specifically on what governance is and what it means.
