Landestini works for the reconnection of humans to the earth, to nature, to rurality, and to the preservation of life.
Through three axes: education, sport and entrepreneurship, we act for healthy and local food, sustainable agriculture and biodiversity.
Go and take your lessons from Nature, that's where our future lies "(L. de Vinci)
Everywhere, living things are declining and human beings are suffering from this degradation of nature. Links are increasingly being established between pesticides and various diseases, and farmers are the first victims. They also suffer from a food system that exploits them.
Moreover, the countryside is emptying, despite a small movement to return to the land that is emerging...
Connecting with nature, acting to protect it and in so doing reinventing new ways of living in harmony with ourselves and our fellow members of the living community, with more meaning, joy and resilience...Landestini is a a non-profit endowment fund whose mission is to reconnect humans with the earth, nature and rurality, and to contribute to the preservation and diversity of life.

This educational programme aims to educate young people about healthy and local food through classroom workshops, hands-on educational farms and visits to local stakeholders. It is an innovative year-long curriculum, co-constructed with the school's teachers, that allows young people not only to better understand food-related issues but also to correspond with students in another country on the same topics.
Faced with the current unprecedented situation, the teams have developed digital teaching kits adapted to the different class levels.
The programme " Negotiating for the planet "is an educational experience of negotiation simulations, a role-playing game that allows an innovative and collective treatment of a delicate theme generally linked to sustainable development issues, with a varied number of participants, of all ages and backgrounds.
Negotiations for the planet are currently being organised in the framework of two projects: "la Cop des jeunes: accords de Provence", in partnership with the Bouches-du-Rhône departmental council, in collaboration with the Aix Marseille academy and the Petits Débrouillards association; and "COP15 biodiversité" in partnership with the Office Français de la Biodiversité and the Agence Française de Développement. Given the current context, Landestini has adapted its programme by offering remote simulations of negotiations.
