In 2016, we were partners in the “Land for What” coalition, alongside eight other organisations working for justice in the land system including the Landworkers Alliance, Radical Housing Network, Three Acres and A Cow, New Economics Foundation and others. Alongside a number of regional workshops, we organised a large conference - also called Land for What? - in London in November 2016.
Over 400 people attended over a weekend and we had an amazing variety of speakers and sessions, all focussing on land as a social and economic justice issue, and looking in particular to make connections between food and housing activists.
The Land Justice Network grew out of this coalition and itself organised a number of events and produced some brilliant literature and connections. LJN is now gently dormant, and we have been working to repurpose the landjustice.uk website as a sign-posting place to help people find groups that are active in the area, as well as reviving the “Land Letter” as a movement-wide newsletter.
You can read more about this in this blog and sign up to the Land Letter on the www.landjustice.uk website.
