Event: Creating Common Good Land Use (Dec 8th)

Tom Kenny

On Thursday 8th December, join us and some great guests at this free event to explore all of our roles in creating common good land management.

We want to see a future where land is used for the common good, and all our work is designed to promote this. We understand common good land use as land management that:

But what models of land use could deliver all these outcomes? What roles do different institutions and sectors have in creating an environment where these models can thrive? If we want to achieve better land use we need to start answering these questions now.

For the last two years we’ve been working with land-based projects and other experts to explore these questions. We’ve been talking about the future of local government, planning, access to land, social enterprise, training, social finance, land data, and more. Indeed, many of you have been directly involved in that process. Now we want to bring everyone together to co-create a vision for the land use of the future, and to develop roadmaps for getting there.

The programme will be a mix of speakers, workshops and discussions. We want everyone to learn from a range of experts, but also to have a chance to contribute their views and experiences. Confirmed speakers so far include:

  • Peter Hetherington on ‘What is ‘common good’ land use and how can we achieve it?’
  • Dieter Helm, Chair of the Natural Capital Committee, is going to feed in his views (via video) on the topic ‘What needs to happen to achieve common good land use’.
  • Gillian Morgan from Sustain on the role of planning in common good land use
  • Chris Parker from the Ordnance Survey’s Geovation Hub, on the role of information in common good land use

More to be announced soon
