Reverse the trend: build a positive narrative by bringing together success stories which serve to inspire
Changing the paradigm for peace in the future also means highlighting the success stories that exist all over the world. There are many more than we might expect, whereby towns and villages have shown creativity and commitment towards creating a more sustainable world. The Normandy Chair for Peace intends to award congratulatory certificates and to showcase these success stories, that can and should serve as inspiration for others.

Launch of the Good stories movement
We change the story of the world When we change the storyline.
Almost everything that happens in the world is not bad. It is neutral, and much of it is even good.
But why do we hear only of bad and the sad? Because bad news sells? This has made all of us stressed, depressed, hopeless, and helpless. No, we are not helpless!
We can change the story of the world if we change the storyline: from bad to good. We can change the narrative from negative to positive.
Please join us in this journey to search for good stories. Together, we will shine the spotlight on the good, the right, and the bright. Together and today, when it is most needed, let us spread enchanted energy and happy hope.
A good story has the power to inspire and set hearts on fire.
Hope you can join us in a memorable moment.

The Good Legal Stories constitute a specific branch of the Good Stories. The Good Stories Movement aims to identify inspiring stories of peace with the earth from all parts of the world in order to highlight them and congratulate the people who initiated them. The Good Legal Stories are also about highlighting inspiring stories of peace with the earth, but specifically those that involve legal action. For example, the case of “Oposa v. Factoran”, a landmark Philippine Supreme Court decision establishing intergenerational responsibility for the environment, is included in the Good Legal Stories.
Thus, a Good Legal Story is the story of a court case that made a real difference, setting a precedent for achieving peace with the Earth. Good Legal Stories are therefore about inspiring legal cases that have had a real impact and are helping to make the world a better place. In order to be considered as Good Legal Stories, these cases must be led by inspiring people who are committed to doing the good and making peace with the Earth, whether it is for the environment, the climate, equality, dignity, access to justice or future generations.
The Good Legal Stories movement, like the Good Stories ones, aims to bring together stories from different horizons and different regions of the world.
Finally, a Good Legal Story, to be recognised as such, must have a positive impact on the lives of all, so that everyone can live in dignity and in peace with the Earth.
