Created in 1976 CRID is a network of about 50 associations united by the same vision of international solidarity: partnership and development based education.
CRID conducts numerous campaigns to challenge public decision-makers and mobilize.
In addition, CRID coordinates the dynamics of the World Social Forums in France, a meeting place for alterglobalization movements around the world.
Finally, the CRID contributes to many collective dynamics in France: Collectif pour une transition citoyenne, Osons les Jours Heureux, Tournons la page, ALLISS, Educasol,...
Among its activities:
- In 2015, during the Cop21, CRID coordinated the Climate 21 Coalition, which bought together more than 130 organizations.
- Since December 2017, CRID has been participating to "Etats Généraux des Migrations".
- Every two years, it organizes a major event bringing together actors from social movements and international solidarity in France. In 2018 it was in Grenoble from 22 to 26 August: the Summer University.
