Young people from different international Fair Trade Organizations (and also students or young Fair Trade consumers) will discuss issues related to Fair Trade. The meeting will take place during “Tuttaunaltracosa” fair, Assobotteghe's  annual convention, which will also showcase Italian Fair Trade. The fair attracts more than 40,000 visitors per year (see www.tuttaunaltracosa.it).

 

Program of the meeting

The camp program is split into two parts. The first part, about a week, the group will discuss the role of Fair Trade in our global economy, and in the second (the last 4 days, coinciding with the fair) everyone will attend and help the Tuttaunaltracosa.

 

During the discussion, participants will be able to share their experience on Fair Trade. This is an opportunity to hear stories of Fair Trade from various corners of the globe. Besides that, participants will touch pressing issues on Fair Trade in the discussion. The key themes are: how to assess the impact of the projects on producer’s livelihood, the certification process, and the relation between producer and consumers.

 

The participants will also assist in the Tuttaunaltracosa fair, like manning Fair Trade booths, which can include some manual work. During the fair, everyone will also have the opportunity to follow thematic speeches and workshops on responsible tourism, ethical financing and many others.
