World Fair Trade Week, taking place in Milan from 23rd to 31st of May 2015, will serve as the global voice of worldwide Fair Trade. The 7-day event will focus on the innovative meaning of Fair Trade, through the concept of “responsibility.” Artisans, farmers, marketers, promoters and advocates will arrive from all over the world to share their experiences, and we will incorporate a perspective of “domestic” Fair Trade as well. The participating Fair Trade Organisations ensure product excellence and quality, virtuous supply-chains and true development to “feed” the world. These organisations and individuals are the leading actors of what Fair Trade means.
EXPO Milano 2015, the Universal Exposition, whose official theme is ‘Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life’, will create an important opportunity to discuss topics connected to the Fair Trade movement: the global production and distribution of food as well as sustainable development.
This weeklong initiative will be an innovative contribution, and will give direct voice to the representatives of thousands of communities of artisans and farmers in Asia, Latin America and Africa, and to those who seek to rewrite the rules of trade based on social and environmental sustainability.
The goal is to restore the centrality of producers’ dignity at all latitudes and at the same time propose new solutions for citizens.
