Land and Natural Resource Ownership Patterns & Future Options for Northern Ireland

Holywell Trust along with Fermanagh Trust, administrators of Community Energy NI, are holding two connected conferences, supported by Carnegie Trust, to widen the public debate on land and natural resource ownership models in Northern Ireland to help influence thinking and practice towards increased community ownership and benefit.

The first of these conferences will take place in Derry/Londonderry on Tuesday 27th September 2016. This conference held will look at the topic ‘Land & Natural Resource Ownership Patterns and Future Options for Northern Ireland’.

The Fermanagh Trust’s event on Thursday 27th October 2016 will explore the opportunities for communities to become actively involved in community energy in rural and urban community settings.

Both events will feature a series of workshops as well as speakers from across Britain and Ireland presenting successful model’s of good practice.

Holywell Trust’s event will include speakers from Rathlin Development and Community Association discussing ownership and management on Rathlin Island. Representatives from ‘Community Land Scotland’ will provide their experience of representing existing and aspiring community landowners in promoting change and empowering their communities. Policy makers and academics will contribute to the discussion, considering future actions and a range of issues in relation to ownership.
