About the 2023 Landscape Leadership Workshop
On 9 and 10 October, the 2023 Landscape Leadership Workshop was held in Nairobi, Kenya, to set the scene for the GLF Nairobi 2023 Hybrid Conference: A New Vision for Earth. Co-designed by the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF), the Youth in Landscapes Initiative (YIL), and the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN), the workshop brought together 45 brilliant young minds from Africa and around the world selected from over 700 applicants to drive impactful and transformative change.
Together, we brainstormed out of the box to find landscape solutions to the climate crisis, biodiversity loss, social injustices and other major challenges. We held hands while sharing our feelings about the world. We harnessed the power of art to challenge dominant narratives. We will forever cherish the memories we made, and we will continue to nourish these new relationships with care.
This presentation by Youth4Nature highlights the significance of storytelling in addressing global environmental challenges like climate change. It encourages individuals, especially young people, to share their efforts and experiences through various storytelling mediums. The power of narrative is emphasized, showcasing its ability to connect with emotions, offer control over narratives, and effectively communicate ideas.
The presentation introduces a storytelling community seeking original, personal stories connecting nature to the climate crisis. It invites submissions from individuals or groups, both youth-led and intergenerational, emphasizing engagement, reflection, and solutions at the climate-nature nexus.
