CRESM is a non-profit organisation that promotes and implements projects to support local development, solidarity and cooperation for the weaker groups of society and in disadvantaged areas.
It works to maximise participation, cooperation and local cohesion. At the same time, it pools together local authorities of different territories, regions and countries that share a common interest in building a multicentric world made of local territories, regions, countries, and world organisations sharing their efforts towards a responsible and sustainable world.
A world where local identities and resources are enhanced; international relations are not exclusively led by the strongest but carried out thanks to cooperation and fair exchange; abuses by individuals, groups or countries are banned together with war, and economic, social, and cultural violence.

“…at CRESM our dreams and work are focused on the goal that every human being can be an added value to the richness of the world and can live and work according to their aspirations and talents.
The quality of each area depends on the quality and participation of the people who live there. The quality of our planet depends on the quality of each inhabited area and local community”.
