We are stronger than we think; united we are stronger than we can imagine. On November 30 at 10 am, let's unite to observe “One Minute for Earth”.

About the EVB-CSQ movement

Initiated in Quebec in 1993 by the Centrale des unions du Québec (CSQ), in collaboration with partners, including RECYC-QUÉBEC, the EVB-CSQ network now has more than 1,400 establishments registered since its creation. An EVB-CSQ is an establishment where we think globally and where we act locally to promote a viable future. That is to say, a place where concrete and continuous actions are taken that can contribute to the construction of an ecological, peaceful, united and democratic world. It is an establishment that values the commitment of young people and adults by making it known and recognized socially. It is an establishment which is open to the community and to the world and which displays, with pride, its achievements and actions, however small they may be!
