The author offers his perspective on where planners get their ideas. He mentions that one way to gather ideas is through formal learning with professors, fellow students, classroom experiences, and books. He also notes that planners also get ideas from experience. He adds that when planners were questioned where they get their ideas, he hopes that they would answer from American Planning Association (APA) in the U.S., through their books, conferences, periodicals and other social media.
