European Elections : The vision of Europe, through Fair Trade and SSE

On the 10th of May 2019, in collaboration with Bostani (a producers-consumers community which functions under the scope of sustainable and responsible production & consumption) and in the framework of our participation in the European elections « Fair Times Campaign », the Greek RIPESS Europe member DOCK organized the «Trade Fair, Live Fair» event in Athens, a public discussion about the vision of Europe, of economic justice and environmental sustainability.

The guest speakers, Francesca Guibilo for WFTO (World Fair Trade Organisation) and Marketa Vinkelhoferova from Fair&Bio coop / Ripess EU (Czech Republic) offered their view through their important experience in these fields. Francesca presented the history of Fair Trade and informed about the strategy of WFTO in building alliances and networks in Europe and worldwide, while Marketa gave some examples and illustrated practices under which the connection of Fair Trade and SSE is becoming more and more present.

They focused on understanding better the history and the progress of the Fair Trade movement concerning the development of networks in different practices worldwide, but also on how public policies about sustainable production and consumption are being implemented in the current context and how they should change in the future in Europe.
