Access To Land
Preserving land

Land is an essential, finite resource. Let’s preserve it from urban development and ensure that farming practices contribute to protect the quality of the soil, water and ecosystems.

Securing land for agroecology

Current land markets and policies come together to favour agro-industrial forms of farming and fuel land concentration. How can we secure land to ensure the development of agroecology in Europe?

Managing land as commons

Mobilising communities to ensure that farmland is used and managed in a way that fulfils its essential contribution to food production, ecosystems and human life.

These actions covered a wide range of topics, from the conservation of hay meadows, to creating new visions for public farmland; from exploring new ways to own farm buildings, to creating solidarity-based land access structures. A new report analyses these novel practices and draws lessons learned on the processes of innovation they implement, guided by social and environmental concerns.
