Webinar June 2021 – The Right to Roam in Sussex!

Landscapes of Freedom hosted a well-attended webinar on the Right to Roam in Sussex and the importance of access to land across England, where over 90% of all land is in private hands and off-limits to the general public.

The land which once belonged to us all has been carved up by the rich and powerful, whose wealth has only boomed at the expense of those most marginalised and made poor through enclosure, slavery and colonialism. We want to campaign for a landscape of freedom for all, where EVERYONE has the Right to Roam.

Speakers in the webinar:

Nick Hayes – Illustrator and author of: “The Book of Trespass – Crossing the Lines that Divide Us.”

Beans on Toast – popular Hastings-based British folk singer and storyteller

Kelly Smith – The Sussex leader for Black Girls Hike UK, an organisation dedicated to “providing a safe space for Black women to explore the outdoors”

Guy Shrubsole – Campaigner and author of: “Who Owns England?: How We Lost Our Green and Pleasant Land, and How to Take It Back”

Anna Selby – Poet and naturalist

David Bangs – Campaigner and author of: “A Freedom to Roam Guide on the Brighton Downs”
