Webinar: Fair trade - choose the world you want

Online Event

Join us in this webinar when we continue discussions about the impact of our purchasing decisions on the Climate Emergency and the future that we face.

Adam Gardner, currently Head of Campaigns (interim) at the Fair Trade Foundation will be talking about his work as Communities Campaigns Manager at the Foundation, and how towns and counties across the UK can gain Fair Trade status, our ambition for Enfield.

Adam can provide first-hand experience of the importance of Fairtrade for individuals and communities overseas and will remind us that to make trade fair, we have an important role to change society here in Enfield.

Local Groups like Fair Trade Enfield and EnCaf are vital for raising awareness and campaigning about Fairtrade and Climate Emergency and reminding us of the fundamental links between the two and the important decisions we each make in “Choosing the World We Want.

”Adam’s first-hand experience includes attending the first International Fairtrade Towns Conference in the Lebanon, meeting with banana farmers and co-operative members in Panama, and also in the Cote d’Ivoire, meeting and learning from cocoa farmers.The need to continue supporting, promoting and advocating for Fairtrade is clear. The impact of supporting Fairtrade in these communities, on poverty, education, climate and sustainability are part of our shared responsibilities at home and afar.

A GlobalNet21/Enfield Climate Action Forum webinar. You can register to participate via Zoom chat or watch a recording later in the PGC GlobalNet21/Enfield Voices webinars archive.
