Event description

Description

Fairtrade Activists value the difference we can all make through our shopping decisions. We value Trade Justice as a tool of Social Justice because it is empowering and creates positive energy. Fairtrade Activists in North West London have developed debates as a means of bringing like-minded people together to discuss the issues of our time. In 2015, the debate was "Where is Fairtrade going?", in 2016, it was "Does Fairtrade have a future?". With the development of Cocoa Fair, Cocoa Plan, Fairly Traded and other ethical initiatives, Fairtrade Activists have questions. How will this impact on our campaigning? How can we continue to influence our communities? How do we share the message that Trade Justice matters? The Debates provide a safe space to ask questions and seek answers

In 2017, the Fairtrade Debate is moving to Central London and the title of the debate has been decided by Fairtrade Activists across London: Fairtrade Debate: Is Effective Ethical Campaigning Possible with so many Ethical Labels? This goes to the heart of the concerns of activists. Dan Crossley, Executive Director at the Food Ethics Council will be chairing the debate. Final details of the panel will follow in the next few weeks.

Join us for this Activist led debate. Together we can continue to make a difference in our world.
