About Us

The Land Collective, inspiring the next generation of property and built environment professionals, one article at a time.

The Land Collective is an award-winning, content-led platform that encourages the next generation of professionals to provide commentary on the property market and the wider built environment. Through the use of; written articles, research reports, and media, we hope to provide education and commercial awareness about different areas of the industry from a birds-eye view – acknowledging the role each respective sector plays. We are a hub of current students and recent graduates from a range of different cultural and educational backgrounds which include law, construction, politics, economics, and planning.

The Land Collective works predominately with 16-30 year-olds to equip them with the tools needed to express their ideas eloquently and critically on an online platform.

Our Objectives

We have five goals that we set out to achieve in running this platform.

Diversity –to promote and encourage diversity from within the profession;
– to equip our readership with critically written articles to encourage independent thinking, develop commercial awareness and identify new learning concepts;
Employability – to make our readership aware of the sheer amount of job opportunities available across the sector;
Engagement – to run accessible and interactive events for students, graduates and young people interested in property and built environment;
The ‘Go-To’ – to become the ‘go-to’ source for property and built environment commentary for young people or those early in their careers.
