The Land Grabbing movement is coming on fast around the world: China is buying millions of acres, because in the future Chinese people need to have land, water for future generations. During the present economic default, I think one possible approach is to invest to buy land around our cities. So we can have cultivated lands that give fresh food to consumers, without rent-seeking land "owners". I'm living in Tuscany and I have an old castle "toscano", with 23 hectares land. Last year I offered it to some young people that wanted to cultivate it, in free use. I proposed this kind of offer to young people to my Town Council, because in Tuscany also there are demanial abandoned lands. I can't come to London but I will be happy if you consider my proposal.
Thank you very much,
