Episode 78 of the Common Weal Policy Podcast

You can download the episode directly here.

This week, Jonathon Shafi and Craig Dalzell discuss Common Weal’s Land Reform Week. In particular, they look at our latest policy papers Work The Land – which illustrates the economic impact of creating tens of thousands of new jobs in Scotland’s rural communities – and Our Land – which shows how the Scottish Government could enact radical land reform now to make that all happen.

Common Weal’s previous work on land reform includes our Common Home Plan and Back to Life, a vision for reforming Scotland’s grouse moors.

Craig also mentions this news story which reports on the £5 billion of “investment” capital looking to try to capture Scotland’s land for its own ends.

Common Weal’s work is only possible thanks to our generous supporters who regularly donate an average of £10 per month. If you would like to help us build our vision of an All of Us First Scotland, you can do so here: https://commonweal.scot/about/donate

The Policy Podcast would like to discuss all of Common Weal’s policy papers in detail so if there are any papers that you would like to see covered sooner rather than later, send your suggestions in to craig@common.scot
