The unprecedented economic and social crises caused by the COVID-19 pandemic have exposed and exacerbated many of the issues that already existed. It is now the moment to reflect on how the EU can contribute to redesigning global value chains so that they are more resilient, sustainable, and fair for all actors.
This online conference will be an opportunity for dialogue between MEPs and actors from the Fair Trade Movement who have been impacted by the crisis.
We will discuss how the best practices of fair trade value chains can be mainstreamed, the barriers to achieving this and how the EU can contribute to making fairer and more sustainable value chains a reality.
