Land lies at the heart of the housing crisis, the climate emergency, and the UK’s spiralling levels of inequality. Land For The Many - a report to the Labour Party published earlier this year - outlines a radical agenda for land reform. Come hear from some of the report’s co-authors and contributors, and discuss with them how to make land reform a reality.
