Earth Summit, Rio de Janeiro, 1992: Activists from around the world gathered to discuss solidarity and respect for the environment. Several Quebec participants decided to create a citizens' group to propose concrete solutions to such problems as pollution, large scale industrialization, and the exploitation of workers in the South. In 1993, they established ASEED (Action for Solidarity, Equity, Environment and Development). It obtained nonprofit status in 1995 and changed its name to Equiterre in 1998. Since the beginning, Equiterre has relied on a dedicated team of specialists from a variety of fields. With the help of citizens, organizations and governments, it develops projects in agriculture, transportation, fair trade, energy, responsible consumption and climate change.

In 1961, a limited number of organizations around the world—such as the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) and The Conservation Foundation—were trying to meet conservation needs, but were desperately short of funds. The first call for broad support was the Morges Manifesto, signed in 1961 by 16 of the world’s leading conservationists, including biologist and African wildlife enthusiast Sir Julian Huxley, IUCN vice president Sir Peter Scott and director-general of the British Nature Conservancy E. M. Nicholson. The Morges Manifesto stated that while the expertise to protect the world environment existed, the financial support to achieve this protection did not. The decision was made to establish World Wildlife Fund as an international fundraising organization to work in collaboration with existing conservation groups and bring substantial financial support to the conservation movement on a worldwild scale.
