This event is now over and took place on Tue 23 Feb 2016
In this evening we consider how social justice, property and inequality meet. This is contested territory, going back to the old days of the Land Societies during Lloyd George’s People’s Budget fighting for land value taxation; the squatters’ battles of the ‘50s and ‘60s and today’s super charged UK property market. In London we see the sharp end of property speculation.
At this event we will look at how social investors and philanthropists can address issues such as the relationship amongst property, inequality and social justice. We will encounter proactive solutions and new thinking for the common good in how property is financed and managed, from both a financial, legal and social perspective.
Questions that will be addressed during the event
- What are the mechanisms which can begin to address this imbalance?
- When we talk about social justice - whom do we consider it is for?
- Do social investors and philanthropist have a role to play in this discussion?
- Is there a role for business in addressing these concerns?
