Landlife involves children!

Landlife storyRecently one of the Landlife partners, XCT, has published an illustrative flip-book for children. This book tells the story of Peggy, an almost 50 year old tortoise that lives near a pond somewhere in the countryside. Sadly the pond is degrading rapidly, but things get better due to a land stewardship agreement that is signed by the land owner. The book is digitally available for free!

This children's book tells a wonderful story about a number of animals that are happy because a land stewardship agreement is signed by the owner of the land they live on. The story explains in a simple way how we can take care of nature by signing land stewardship agreements. There's a version in Catalan and one in English.
