The Alliance participates in a wider reflection on the crisis in collective action and what can be done about it. The Alliance is also based on a sharing of responsibilities. In its approach, it strives to combine the autonomous initiatives in a coherent whole.
In keeping with its convictions, the Alliance has developed ways of working, methods and tools shared by all its allies.
