To All Members of the Global CLT Movement
In collaboration with the SHICC Network and World Habitat, we are hosting an online "World CLT Day" social media campaign. We’re asking you to please join us in participation on October 29th.
What is it?
We’re inviting all CLTs around the world to come together and join us in celebration of the community land movement and all its collective progress. We’re a diverse and widespread movement, and World CLT Day is an opportunity to give visibility to the growing community of CLTs and share your exciting work with peers around the globe.
Our theme is "this land is our land" in recognition of CLTs common purpose to reclaim land and resources and use them to build social, sustainable, and vibrant communities.
How do you participate?
Just upload a video, photo, or text between now and October 29th featuring people and places from your CLT. See the instructions below on how to post to Facebook or Twitter. We are especially interested in seeing the faces and hearing the voices of people (in your own language) from the community served by your CLT. And we'll be taking all of your texts, photos and videos and creating a compilation video that we'll post on our website after World CLT Day is over.
Why are we doing it?
We want to spotlight the amazing growth of CLTs and launch the beginning of an annual day World CLT day to recognize our work. If you’re a CLT, thinking of starting a CLT, or a community group that identifies with the CLT movement, please get involved!
