Making land work
for everyone

We are a think and do tank that supports people managing land for the common good.

At Shared Assets we believe that land is a common good that should deliver shared benefits for everyone.

We provide practical advice, support and training to landowners and communities who want to manage land as a sustainable and productive asset.

We also undertake research, policy and advocacy work to help create an environment where common good models of land management can flourish.

We feed learning from this and all our other work into advocacy, campaigning, and new innovations like Land Explorer, Unlocking Networks and Parks Academy.
