Policy Land-Ally foundation 

The Land-Ally foundation is set up to care for pieces of land following the land-allyship methodology. It supports the research, implementation, and dissemination of land-ally methodology. The foundation is a non-profit organisation. 

It aims to make interaction with nature through caregiving accessible to local communities.

By makings green-spaces public and setting up open-for-all workshops and gatherings. In doing so it aims to restore a sense of interconnectivity and responsibility between humans and their natural environment.  

How do you form an alliance with land, and all that lives and exists within that? This is the starting point of each land relationship. Following a methodology, the type of care processes, objects and human collaboration will be different according to each land, plant-and-animal community, and timeframe.

Land-Allyship can be practised on multiple levels: ecological, social and legal. This is its Methodology:

  1. Build land relations by listening and observing non-human community

  2. Define ( human-caused) imbalances

  3. Define low-tech collaborative restorative practises

  4. Develop tools, care practices, workshops

  5. Collaborative experimental phase

  6. Redirect care and responsibility among the local community

  7. Legal Land-Ally: in which the land becomes their own legal entity by being adopted into the foundation or otherwise legal measures are taken to ensure the land’s most beneficial legal status.

The foundation, in it's policy plan, aims to:

- Support and create lands as a test case for the Land-Allyship methodology, including public programming, workshops and objects to support these projects. 

- Support and initiate research to support land-based projects that explore the land-allyship attitude.


-Support and create publications and artworks that spread the ideology and research going into the land-based projects.
