Whose Land is it Anyway?


Whose Land is it Anyway?

An article linked to in the Community Land Scotland news bulletin. I haven’t read the whole thing but the title itself brings up a crucial question in the community ownership debate.

Also in the Community Land Scotland bulletin is the newly released ‘Community Land Ownership – Economic Indicators Report’.
This is a study of the economic impact of community land ownership in Scotland. The report demonstrates that community ownership can out-perform the past private ownership of the land in question. See summary here.


My Live Below the Line Challenge


My Live Below the Line Challenge

This week (starting Tues 29th April & finishing Sat 3rd May) I am taking part in the Live Below the Line UK challenge. I will be living on £1 a day for 5 days (for food & drink) as part of the Global Poverty Project’s campaign to raise awareness of the challenges faced by the 1.2 billion people across the world living in extreme poverty. 

I am also raising money for Raleigh International International Citizen Service (ICS) Ics Fundraising in conjunction with my volunteering project in Tanzania over the summer.
