Seminar 19th and 20th June and Conference 21st June - Brussels
Throughout Europe, we are witnessing the emergence of social innovations which support farmers in securing land to enter farming or to consolidate their farm businesses. Over the past few years the Access to land network has mapped best practices and explored core issues related to access to land. These issues include facilitating new entrants to access land; the role of local authorities in land access; and available legal tools for land tenure and stewardship.
In June, we organised a three-day event combining two days of learning with practitioners to share and enrich field-based experience, and a public conference to draw lessons and engage with other stakeholders.
During this seminar, top experts from all over Europe gathered to share the results of their search for best practices that can overcome the obstacles to access to land.
We tailored the seminar for a wide panel of actors ranging from policy makers, members of an organisation who manage access to land, social entrepreneurs who wish to set up a new access to land initiative in their country, researchers or citizens interested in the subject.
Date: 19th & 20th June 2017
