Gearing up for Our Land 2016 Festival

When we published our Vision for a Stronger Community Sector earlier this summer, we recognised that we’d be unable to reflect in just one document all the different interests that make up SCA’s membership. And so a series of policy papers have been produced in collaboration with the most relevant networks and we’ll be promoting these in the months ahead. Next month, the campaign group Our Land Scotland kicks off its 2016 Festival which aims to hold the Government’s feet to the fire on land reform. This is our contribution to Festival programme.


Our Land

The countdown has begun. Our Land Festival 2016 will be the next great staging point in Scotland’s land reform movement and will reinforce the campaign’s call for bolder and braver legislation than that passed in Holyrood earlier this year. The festival will kick off as before on the “Glorious Twelfth of August” – intentionally clashing with the start of the grouse shooting season. The special preview event will be in Birnam Arts Centre on 7th August


Events initiated and carried out by grassroots organisers across Scotland (detailed in the programme below) will highlight both urban and rural land issues in a huge variety of ways. All events will be free or donation based to help cover costs and everyone is welcome to attend.
