160906- Mapathon poster - Draft v1

Who owns our lands?

We’re kick-starting House of the Commons 2016 with Oxford Mapathon, an interactive mapping session with an introductory talk by Andy Wightman, author of ‘Who Owns Scotland’, ‘Community Land Rights: A Citizens Guide’ and ‘The Poor Had No Lawyers’, together with Tom Kenny from Shared Assets.

Our mapping sessions will follow through themes of food, housing and energy, chaired by experts in the subjects.

Sign up for FREE on Oxford Mapathon Eventbrite.

A delicious cooked meal will be served for free, but we’ll accept donations at the event to support our amazing chef!
