Q: Why is land reform so popular?

Land owner:
I say! You! Get off my land!
Fisherman:
How did this get to be your land?
Land owner:
Well, I inherited it from my father
Fisherman:
And who did he get it from?

From his father, naturally.
Fisherman:
And who did he get it from?
Land owner:
Well, my forefathers fought for it – they drove off the people who lived here before.

So you fought for it eh? Well I’ll fight you for it right now!

A: Land Reform enables strong communities

PEDAL takes its inspiration from communities throughout Scotland who have successfully taken back control of local resources to enable local jobs, local initiatives and local decision making.

Current ideas (whether they happen through reclaiming and renewing community assetts, through the carbon reduction programe, through establishing community owned renewables, or through other projects) include: community owned hub/ pub/ café/ workshops/ gardens/ renewable energy schemes… your ideas are welcome!
