With land we can

Reimagining what we can do with land, together

welcome to the new future of land

We are a think and do tank working to create a socially just future through practical projects that build new relationships between people and the land.

We work with communities, landowners, researchers and activists to create a world where our relationship to the land is based on stewardship, evidence and justice. Our consultancy work supports the practical creation of new business and governance models for land that create shared social, environmental and economic benefits.  

We do research to learn with and about the land, and those who have a relationship with it, to help build an evidence base of how we can work with the land for the common good. And we collaborate with, coordinate and support activists and organisations working for justice in the land system.

As a community interest company, any surplus we make is reinvested in our mission to make land work for everyone. Our consultancy, research and movement building work has social, racial, economic and environmental justice at its heart. As well as undertaking our own projects and programmes we also act as infrastructure for the ecosystem of common good land stewards, land justice activists and landowners who share our vision.

shared assets
We are working with Shared Assets as our organisational development consultants on a major new project, House of Annetta. Kate and Mark are supporting us with their expertise and intuition to create a new charity to pursue the decomodification of land and property across the UK. It is an honour and a pleasure to collaborate with Shared Assets on our plans and ideas.

Shared Assets always begin their work with Big Local areas by listening to community priorities and engaging deeply with their perspective. This has been hugely valuable in the work we've done together, ensuring that communities are treated as equal partners.
