Our Stories

Storytelling builds movements.

The people you will hear from on this page come from every region of the world. The particularities of their hopes, dreams, struggles, and triumphs are vastly different. Each, however, is inspired by the same longterm vision: people centred-land governance.

We tell these stories to celebrate our triumphs, learn from our mistakes, strengthen our resolve, and to build momentum for future fights.

Explore this page, and meet the land rights defenders at the heart of who we are as a a network.
