History of TOES

TOES was founded by TOES/UK, now the New Economics Foundation. The first TOES conference was held in England in 1984 when a variety of individuals and groups concerned with social justice and the environment decided there should be a peoples' response to the G7 (now G8) summit held in London that year. Ever since that time, TOES has contributed, in one way or another, to Peoples' Summits held in all the G7 countries. The first TOES gathering was held in England in 1984. From 1985 to 1987, TOES met in the UK and sent a delegation to the G-7 summit city. Beginning in 1988, TOES has convened every year at the site of the G-7 Summit.

TOES has brought together academics and activists from both industrialized and third-world nations to challenge the assumption of the official summit that global economic policy affecting 100 percent of the world's people can effectively be made by the leaders of seven nations representing less than a quarter of the global population.
