International Fair Trade Towns Conference
2-3 July, Lebanon
The theme of the conference will be ‘Building Bridges through Fair Trade’ and reflect how Fair Trade Towns in Lebanon have created social and economic links between communities of different sects and faiths. This has led to the exchange of products, the bringing together of campaigners across previous divides and the development of a platform for solidarity and mutual support. In a country like Lebanon that has 18 different sects, and with more than a quarter of its population made up of refugees fleeing from surrounding countries ‘Building Bridges’ between different communities is a much needed side effect of the Fair Trade Town campaigns. It became a way to exchange experiences and unite efforts to fight for a common goal and the improvement of their own communities.
