Réseau québécois des groupes écologistes
The Réseau québécois des groupes écologistes (RQGE) is a network of 80 grassroots, community-based environmental organizations in Quebec. Founded in 1982, they are the central hub for the collective defense of human rights, social justice and environmental protection. They provide support, tools, decision-making platforms, exposure and political representation to organizations in order to strengthen the environmental movement in every way possible. They reach out and make alliances with womens', workers', students' and First Nations' movements. While their members work on diverse issues, strategies and campaigns, they all gather under three values: solidarity, autonomy and respect for nature.
