Legado Activates The Power of Legacy Around the World

So that people and nature can thrive together
- now and into the future.

how we do it


Climate change is the greatest threat of our time.

But how we’re talking about solutions is wrong.
We don’t just need to protect land and biodiversity, we need to create Thriving Futures, where both places and people thrive.

A Thriving Futures solution needs a locally-led approach. We must begin with indigenous peoples and local communities, who are stewards of 85% of land needed to meet conservation targets and among the most vulnerable to climate impacts.

For too long solutions have taken a siloed approach, marginalized local people, and left out their voices. As a result, solutions have often failed to create long-lasting change.

It’s time for a change

Legado offers a new way forward with our radical approach that secures Thriving Futures for both people and the places they call home.
