A burgeoning movement for national land reform has brought the question of land to the fore of politics. But what would a radical agenda for land reform look like? What organisations are pushing for this change right now? How do we build on the momentum created by bold new proposals outlined in the recent Land for the Many report, which made national headlines?
Tickets to this event are free but spaces are limited so book early to avoid missing out!
