Camilla Capasso

I am a writer, storyteller and content creator with years of experience covering stories about food, land, climate and gender justice. I create content for international organizations and NGOs, including UN agencies, and I write about people that I believe can inspire us to imagine and build a different world. 

Writing & Storytelling

  • The last of the mangroves - The Ecologist
    A story on the effects of shrimp farming on Indigenous communities and their mangrove forests in Malaysia.

  • Community-based monitoring to end oil contamination in the Peruvian Amazon - UNEP
    Indigenous communities in Peru are using a mix of traditional knowledge and technology to monitor the disastrous effects of oil spills in the Amazon in order to hold international companies accountable.

  • My husband's land - International Land Coalition
    Customary laws in Cameroon prevent widows from inheriting their late husband's land. This is the story of how Justine got her land back. 

  • A life for land rights - Forest Peoples Programme
    The Indigenous community living in the reserve Cañamomo-Lomaprieta in Colombia has been fighting for decades to get their land back. This is the story of Indigenous activist Faustino Rotavista.

  • Farming for the future in South Africa - International Land Coalition
    The story of  Mokgadi, a black female farmer from South Africa, a country where most agricultural land is owned by large-scale, white-owned commercial farms.

  • Looking after lagoons in Ecuador - International Land Coalition
    A short film and a human-interest article showcasing how a community in Ecuador came together to create a conservation area to safeguard the local lagoons, through a participative and inclusive process.

Social media & content

    In 2022, I travelled to Sharm-el-Sheik to cover COP27, focusing on initiatives and events that talked about the importance of securing land rights to mitigate the climate crisis.


  • INSTAGRAM TAKEOVER | UN Food Systems Summit, Italy
    Ahead of the UN Food Systems Summit in 2021, I took over their instagram account for a day to show how a farming social cooperative in Southern Italy is successfully building a more sustainable food system.

  • SOCIAL MEDIA COVERAGE | Global Land Forum, Jordan
    I flew to Jordan to do social media live coverage of the Global Land Forum, a global conference on land rights issues with more than 800 participants from 74 countries. Throughout the conference, the official hashtag of the event reached 2.9M people with almost 8k interactions.

    At the Global Land Forum in Jordan, I had the pleasure to hold a workshop on digital storytelling for change with Al-Jazeera journalist Sandra Gathmann.

    In 2017, I travelled to Cameroon to train local youths on how to use social media to speak up against palm oil concessions on their community’s land.


I have a BA (Hons) in Journalism from the University of Westminster (2014) and a MSc in Social Anthropology from the London School of Economics (2015).
