About Land-Ally

Land-Ally is a nature management methodology based on alliance (allyship) with non-human entities. Its aim is to facilitate an intimate connection between humans and nature, by providing a place to connect with nature by caring of it: hands-on.

It is a public space, with tools designed to work together with animals and plants, insects, fungi and bacteria on land. Meetings are organised on the land using these tools to take care of the place.

In addition, Land-Ally sites are a hub where, for example, artists, designers, naturalists or researchers can join the project, or use the place as a base for dialogue and intervention around the theme of multi-species coexistence.

Land-Ally constitutes of a foundation and a travelling methodology that can be applied in different locations. Because the project responds to the animals and plants present on site, the project is always takes on a different form depending on the location. In addition, Land-Ally can work in commission or collaboration around the question "how to design an environment as an ally of nature"?
