Land What For + Evening Social
24/03/2018 @ 2:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Land plays a central but unmentioned role in our country today: widening inequality, a chronic housing crisis, dysfunctional food system, poor public health and impending climate disasters. We want to bring people together to talk about how land ownership and control is central to all these issues. Together we can unite to fight for the changes we need.
Land For What? is a collaborative space for learning about and challenging the way land is owned, controlled and used in the UK and beyond.
Join us on for a participatory session of learning, thinking and planning practical action.
The event will seamlessly evolve into a vegan supper club run by Turning Earth – there is a suggested donation of £15 for the three course meal.
We are committed to making this event as accessible as possible. Those with young children are more than welcome to bring their children into the sessions and we can providing childcare on site if given advanced notice. Sadly this venue is not wheelchair accessible.
