Abstract:

In order to awaken the sleeping giant of green politics the green movement needs to highlight the importance of a reconnection with nature and the land, a process in which questions of ownership are central. This would include the encouragement of renewable energy co-operatives, energy bonds or even a renewable energy sovereign wealth fund; as well as the exploration of new forms of owner relationship to Britain's forests and commons, and even the reversal of previous enclosure acts.
