International speaker visit for Fairtrade Fortnight 2017
As part of our EU-funded Susy project (which supports and promotes the 'social and solidarity economy'), we’re very excited to have two visitors from Palestine and India joining us during Fairtrade Fortnight 2017, to speak about their experience of this type of community empowerment. Bassema Barahmeh is a producer from Anza women’s cooperative, part of the Palestine Fair Trade Association, and Veena Nabar is a researcher on the co-operative sector in India, specifically the Andaman and Nicobar territory.
We’re currently working with our partners at Zaytoun to arrange a programme of activities for the visit, which will take place between Sunday 26th February and Friday 3rd March. We would love to be part of any Fairtrade Fortnight events you may be organising; if you are based in London or the South East and would like to arrange a visit from our speakers, do get in touch with Catherine Richardson by Friday 20th January: email@example.com.
