Amazonian Storytelling Competition: amplifying the voices of nature

To amplify the critical voices in the Amazon region, the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) is hosting an Amazonian Storytelling Competition in collaboration with the Youth in Landscapes Initiative (YIL).

We are looking for videos with perspectives from Indigenous peoples and local communities (IPLCs), Afro-descendant peoples (ADPs); quilombolas and maroons; peasants and women, farmers, and community leaders on a wide range of topics, including but not limited to:

  • Deforestation
  • Biodiversity loss
  • Land tenure & rights 
  • Ecosystem restoration
  • Sustainable finance
  • Food security
  • Circular bioeconomy

What’s in it for you?

The three best stories will receive prizes of EUR 500, 300 and 200 respectively. We will also be showcasing the best 10 to 15 submissions at GLF Amazonia: The Tipping Point, which will be attended by thousands and reach millions via social media and the press.
