School for Peasant Leaders

Outstanding figures of the peasant movement are invited to spend some time at Inland headquarters in a sort of Farmer in Residence programme. Training is offered in areas such as Project Definition, Project Management, Languages, Communication and Media Techniques, History and Philosophy of Farmer Struggles and Global Geopolitics.

Pastoralist leaders from different regions of the world, members of the World Alliance of Mobile Pastoralists, are also invited. The aim is to provide scholarships to three leaders per year to acquire new skills they can apply back in their communities in self-managed development projects, and build up their capacities for the defence of their way of life.

During their stay, exchanges and engagement with local shepherds and the farming community will be encouraged through cohabitation and joint presentations and debates, and tutoring in the Shepherds School classes.

Currently we are searching for donors to support the grants scheme.
