This episode is the 3rd webinar in a series brought by Land Management 2.0, a not-for-profit knowledge sharing network created to transform and shape the future of the land management sector.

The webinar will explore how trends will affect land management in the East of England, including how land managers should be preparing for ELMs . Further to this, it will explore how the rural sector can work collaboratively to inspire regional change and create investment cases which grow natural, social and financial capital to the benefit of local communities.

Transformative system change towards landscape restoration

Final - PP.png

As Design Strategist at Commonland, Pieter has worked with groups of farmers across Europe to support regional land use plans. Drawing on this experience, Pieter will explore how land managers can dismantle system barriers which block sustainable business practices (e.g. policies, consumer behaviour, conflicting values), using

inclusive stakeholder alliances to create transformative system change. Pieter will argue that collaborations involving a diverse range of partners is key for shifting mindset and he will provide insights into how land managers can deal with complexity and potential conflicting interest.
