Since then TOES has become an umbrella term, travelling around the world meeting - in some form or other, even if its just as a press office - parallel to the G7 summit.
So there was a TOES in Tokyo in 1985 which was really exported from the UK, and got themselves involved in the dispute about whether there should be a new airport.
The only year missed so far was Italy in 1986. Since then, TOES in the UK became the New Economics Foundation, and there have been alliances of organisations pulling together a series of events for each summit, at which TOES has had a presence.
Last year in Naples, the whole range of events rose up a notch in importance
because the communist mayor of Naples insisted on having a parallel reception
for the alternative summit as he had done for the G7 leaders - a number of
mural artists were also arrested for their caricatures of Bill Clinton!
