Can we achieve a fairer future for all?
As calls for social justice and human rights echo around the world, climate change, a global pandemic, and rampant economic inequality continue unabated. Fairtrade has long advocated for a more just world, where producers and businesses engage in mutually beneficial relationships, and shoppers everywhere can choose products that contribute to a healthy planet and a higher quality of life for all. But the complex challenges we face today as a global collective have placed enormous strain on our ability to believe: can the future indeed be fair?
Enter The Future is Fair: a global conversation during which Fairtrade will share key learnings about the impact of the Fairtrade approach, consumer and global trends in sustainability, and how Fairtrade has infused these insights into a new global strategy that is a launch-pad for sustainability and value.
Moderated by award-winning Ghanaian journalist Odelia A. A. Ofori, the panel event will feature Fairtrade’s leadership in a conversation exploring the key elements behind how consumers, producers, and traders across the globe can come together and build a fairer and more sustainable future for all.
Panellists include Dr. Nyagoy Nyong’o, Global CEO at Fairtrade International; Lynette Thorstensen, Fairtrade International Board Chair; Miguel Munguía, President of CLAC and Fairtrade International Board Member.
