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,

on responsible tourism, ethical financing and many others.
