Just letting you know that Bob Corker of the the Koanga Institute will be giving a talk about Community Land Trusts at the Naval Point Club in Lyttelton next Wednesday.
Here is the text from the flyer:
You are invited to come and hear Bob Corker, from the Koanga Institute give a talk about Community Land Trusts.
Kotare Village is a developing Permaculture Village in Northern Hawkes Bay, currently seeking settlers. The community is being established using the Community Land Trust model of land ownership to develop a sustainable, resilient, rural settlement. As a director of the Kotare Village project, Bob will explain the legal, social and economic structures that the community is being built with and discuss how Community Land Trusts may be used in redevelopments in Christchurch.
Bob will discuss the origins of Community Land Trusts in the USA, recent innovations in the UK and Scotland, their use to protect community values, and the development of economic self-reliance in communities.
WEDNESDAY 1 FEBRUARY 6pm – 8pm
