For Affordability and Ecological Sustainability
**July 153:30-8:30 pmTruro -- $55**
With Mike Lewis, Co-sponsored with NS Co-operative Council*

A Community Land Trust (CLT) is a blended land ownership model.  It 
secures socio-economic and environmental goals through non-profit 
ownership of the land and leasing it back to private owners or 
organizations focused on community benefit.  Affordability and other 
goals are built into the lease creating a powerful and balance means of 
blending private and community benefits.

This unique land tenure has proven itself to actually *increase housing 
affordability* over time, both for rentals and owner occupied housing. 
This workshop will elevate these applications as a priority.  However, 
CLTs have several other applications. Two will be touched on in this 
workshop; how it can be used facilitate the transfer of land to a new 
generation of ecologically conscious young farmers and the provision of 
affordable work space.

Sound interesting and relevant?  We hope so. Come and spend 5 hours 
engaging with Michael Lewis, the leading Canadian expert on CLTs. *Mike 
Lewis* is well known in Canada and internationally as a practitioner, 
author, educator, and leader in the field of CED and the social economy. 
His experience cuts across the full range of functions connected to 
community renewal and development. He has built and advised a wide range 
of businesses, organizations, and governments all over Canada and 
internationally as well. An innovator, activist, and thinker with a 
penchant for linking practice with policy and the micro and macro, 
Mike’s leadership in CCCR (communityrenewal.ca 
<http://www.communityrenewal.ca/>) and elsewhere continues to help us 
connect the dots and stay ahead of the curve.
