Storytelling_101

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.

STORYTELLING
101
● With current global environmental trends, most people,
if not all, are doing something, whether consciously or
otherwise to mitigate or adapt to the effects of climate
change and nature degradation
● While this is significant, most of these effects do go
unnoticed because of the lack of skills/confidence to
present the little big thing we are doing to the world-the
global audience
● Stories and storytelling can be powerful tools, if well
applied, to convey our messages of hope, resilience
and determination to the world

It is a multifaceted skill and tool which youth can employ to: ● reflect on experiences and actions ● communicate concerns and solutions ● showcase work and expertise ● record journeys and learnings Stories can be powerful devices and examples of the understanding, change, and mobilisation needed to tackle the climate and ecological crises. While there is value in just collecting and amplifying this, there is untapped potential that could be expanded on…
  • 8. Why? Because stories allow us total control of our own narratives They enable us to better communicate our ideas and impact to our audiences They connect us intrinsically to our past They appeals to human sense emotions, impacts and audience
  • 9. - Storytelling enables us to convert our social and cultural practices into powerful stories and narratives - Stories are (literally) everywhere - These stories/narratives can be shared for educational purposes, or to entertain, to preserve a culture or even to promote certain moral values The stories can be “natural” but also pretty much intentional!
