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
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.
