Terre citoyenne is an informal alliance, made up of individuals and organizations with a with a willingness to work as big as the challenges they face. These men and women together built synergies, a relationship of trust and concrete initiatives. It aims not only to act from local, but also bring a significant number of initiatives and proposals at the international level.
The origin of this alliance comes from the “APM Program – Peasant agricultures and globalisation” initiated by the Charles Leopold Mayer Foundation for Human Progress – FPH – in 1993. In 2003, the association between APM network members and new organizations like the World Mountain People Association, the World Forum of Fishermen, Alimenterra, ADEPA, etc. .. was born Terre Citoyenne (Sustainable Earth Alliance). Pierre Vuarin (FPH) is one of the co-founders and leaders.

It also provides new research issues, new important collective management tools (Coredem, conceptual mapping, etc.)..
