Millions of farmers worldwide are on the frontline of a climate emergency they have done the least to cause.
And trapped in an unfair trade system which will only drive us further into crisis. What role does Fairtrade play in helping to mitigate the legacy of colonial exploitation in food supply chains today? And what is needed to continue to unravel this legacy in the future?
Participants will be given the chance to put forward their questions to our guest speaker and chair, followed by some time to socialise and network around refreshments.
This event will give you an excellent chance to enjoy thought-provoking talks and discussion, followed by an opportunity to reconnect with fellow alumni, students, academics, industry experts and the wider public.
Speaker: Adam Gardner, Head of Campaigns at The Fair-trade Foundation
Chair:Dr Rosalind Sharpe, City University of London
