Meet the ambassadors 

The driving force of the movement. 

Our work is only possible with the support of our ambassadors. They are the faces of the movement and facilitate the geostorytelling workshops to Indigenous communities in the local spoken language. The workshops are empowering communities to tell first-hand stories through films and geospatial data and use this content as a proof of evidence to reclaim their forest territories through judicial procedures.
