LCF Law Group acted as Partner and Founder of the smart-art-media project “Land Response”

LCF acted as a partner and founder of the Land Response project. This is a unique social project consisting of three parts: “smart” (forecast analytics), “art” (participation of artists for deepening dialogue on the matter) and “media” (media coverage of the project). The project is devoted to the study of possible scenarios for the land market’s development in Ukraine. The study was conducted by Valery Pekar, alongside the WikiCityNomika team.

“First of all, in this project it is important for us that the findings are independent and not committed. We are attracted by the fact that the study will form scenarios for the development of the land market, and not create a response to someone’s narrow corporate interests. This approach creates trust and opportunity for discussing scenarios in the community, among experts and practitioners. And the public consensus is a precondition for the successful implementation of any reform,” commented Artem Stoyanov.
