CLTs, Self-Determination & Power

Download: 

In the industrialized world, we have been living apart from the land for so long now, we have forgotten how central the land question is. Land trusts are a way to alter ownership in a way that can also support the development of a community culture of self-determination. To transform the nature of the ownership of land so that it fosters ownership with others, rather than over others, transforms society's power relations. A land trust is a deliberate strategy to acquire power with others in order to provide for community stewardship of the natural and social environments.
