A Fair and Sustainable Business Model is possible!
On the 7th of October 2019 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. WFTO-Europe invites you to join the discussion “A Fair and Sustainable Business Model is possible”!
As part of the Belgian Fair Trade Week (Semaine du commerce équitable), the World Fair Trade Organization-Europe, together with its partners Belgian Fair Trade Federation, Oxfam-Magasins du monde, Fair Trade Advocacy Office, Fair Trade Belgium, Trade for Development Center are pleased to invite you to share and discuss challenges and solutions Fair Trade and social enterprises are facing in running sustainable, ethical and social businesses.
What to expect?
First, recent research by WFTO-Europe on Fair Payment, as well as by WFTO and Traidcraft Exchange on Alternative Business Models within the Fair Trade movement, will be presented to inform the discussion.
A round table discussion will follow, moderated by a representative from the FTAO and will involve some representatives working in fair and ethical business. The discussion will be centred around the obstacles and difficulties faced by social, ethical and sustainable enterprises in particular and the two representatives will contribute with some best practices.
Then, it will be your turn! The core of the event will be the debate in smaller working groups to give the opportunity to all participants to discuss possible solutions for addressing the obstacles and difficulties identified at the round table. Suggestions brought up in the discussion will be collected for compiling a list of policy asks.
The event will close with the opportunity for informal networking.
