About the Presenters

Peter Ellery, PhD, MLA, works to develop socially and environmentally regenerative communities using community-centered, collaborative design processes. His current interests are focused on how we can develop “places” as educational, social, and economic opportunities and how these “places” can be used to foster thriving communities.

Jane Ellery, PhD, works at the intersection of Place, Health, and the Economy by focusing on collaborative change efforts, participatory approaches, and community-centered processes. After two decades working in prevention-related roles, Jane shifted from pathogenic initiatives designed to keep people from getting sick to salutogenic practices that encourage living life to its fullest.
