What is Land Justice?

February 15 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm UTC+1

| £5 – £10

(Day / Evening tickets available separately)

The historic root of inequality in Britain is the uneven distribution of land, the rights given to those who own it, and the rights taken from those who don’t. This backdrop affects us all. This is an open invitation to those working across all sectors who are keen to understand more about how Land Justice issues affect their work or life.

Come and join the South West group of the Land Justice Network for a day of learning about and exploring how land justice relates to: food; housing; energy; ecosystems, transport, our colonial history, climate resilience and our common good, creating a common base of knowledge from which to build a movement and inform action across all sectors.

This will be followed by an evening of storytelling and music.

The line-up includes:

– Recent history of land justice movement in England with Indra Donfrancesco from Earth First!
– Right to Roam campaign planning with Nick Hayes – Illustrator and author of ‘The Spellbound Land: Trespassing the lines that divide us all’. Nick’s beautiful prints will be for sale with funds going to the Land Justice Network.
