Fairtrade Yorkshire Virtual Conference 2020

Like so many events in this most unprecedented of years, the Fairtrade Yorkshire 2020 Conference has gone online.

While we’ll be very sad not to be able to see one another face to face and network in person, it gives us an opportunity to hear from some people who might otherwise not be able to make it to Yorkshire in person.

So we’re delighted that the CEO of the World Fair Trade Organisation has agreed to give our keynote speech at the 2020 Conference.

Erinch Sahan has been CEO of WFTO for two years, having previously worked at Oxfam and as a lecturer and public speaker. Now based in Oxford and currently on paternity leave so we’re especially honoured to have him with us!

Erinch will be joined by a panel of experts with different specialisms for a discussion on the topic “Building A Fair Trade Future”.

Tom Wills is Senior Policy Adviser at Traidcraft Exchange and produced their recent paper on Building Business Back Better

Sabita Banerji is the CEO of THIRST The International Roundtable on Sustainable Tea

Marike de Pena Co-founded the Dominican banana co-operative Banelino and is a Board member at the Fairtrade Foundation

Dominique Muller is Policy Director at Labour Behind the Label

Join us from 7pm on Monday 19 October
