Making Land Work: Policy for a 21st Century Commons

Our first policy event, ‘Making Land Work: Policy for a 21st Century Commons’ took place on the 12th June 2015 and was a great success. Over 70 delegates came together- from funders to academics, practitioners, landowners and policymakers, to discuss how public policy can support land based social enterprise.

We covered key policy issues, outlined prior to the event in our policy blogs, including land data, the cost of land, planning policy and land sharing agreements.

We learnt a huge amount about the growing land based social enterprise and land reform movement, which we explore in our event blog here. There is also a Storify of the day’s events and, below, a short video with snippets of speaker’s talks.

Our policy programme has just begun, so feel free to check our policy issue videos, policy blogs, have your say in our policy forum or tweet, Facebook or email us with your ideas for this growing movement.
