About us

Monday 14 October 2002, by ALTERNATIVES

Founded in 1994, Alternatives ’Action and
Communication Network for International Development’ is a non-governmental international solidarity organization.

Youth Internship
Programs

Every year, Alternatives organizes overseas
internships. These are offered to youth and they aim to foster a sense of curiosity and solidarity with the rest of the world. Core to the experience is an emphasis on comprehensive understandings of international realities, as well as the encouragement of work that advances Alternatives’ message of justice. Thanks to the internships, hundreds of young people have had the opportunity to participate in life-changing professional, cultural, and human experiences.

Alternatives in
Quebec and Canada

In Canada, Alternatives produces and participates in a number of conferences and public events. It also publishes a newspaper and several Web sites and organizes educational and informational activities.

The Alternatives newspaper is a monthly compendium of international, national, and cultural news. Located in Québec’s ’Devoir’ newspaper and circulated among its members, the newspaper has a circulation rate of approximately 50,000 copies monthly, making it an effective window of alternative information on our world. Please contact us for details on our upcoming English newspaper.

Whether in Quebec, Canada, or the world, Alternatives works to raise public awareness of international and local policy debates, their interconnectedness and their relevance to peoples’ lives. Through its information and educational campaigns which reflect concern for equality and justice in the South, Alternatives communicates with both the general public and relevant policymakers. At the local level, our work focuses on environmental sustainability initiatives, participatory democracy, out-reach and solidarity programs with immigrant communities and the promotion of pro-social policies.

Alternatives is an
active, open actor,
present and in touch
with the world.
