Canadian Earth Summit CoalitionThe Canadian Earth Summit Coalition was a non-partisan, self-organized, independent, and informal civil society network of non-profit, non-governmental, academic and research organizations and ethical business networks. The Coalition’s primary goal was to coordinate the civil society movement in a push for Canadian leadership at the Earth Summit 2012. Depending on organisational capacity, coalition members had an opportunity to officially supported policy submissions to the United Nations and the Government of Canada.

There were a number of expectations that Coalition partners fulfilled during the mobilizing, depending on their organizational capacity – and a number of benefits they received, such as participate in Coalition meetings, receive updates from the rio+20 negotiations and exposure for their organization through recognition on our website and events.
