Fair trade: still relevant today?

Actu - Le commerce équitable : toujours d'actualité?

Laure Waridel will participate in a talk on fair trade to be held at the Centre for Sustainable Devlopment (better known by its official name, Maison du développement durable) as part of a lecture series celebrating Equiterre's 20th anniversary. (In French only.)

Ecosociologist Waridel will join a panel of experts that will include Dario Iezzoni, director of marketing and sales at Brûlerie Santropol, and Isabelle St-Germain, deputy director of Equiterre, both of whom helped pioneer fair trade in Quebec. 

For more than 15 years, Equiterre has promoted fair trade as a means of allowing marginalized peasants and artisans to regain control of their destiny. This discussion panel will review the progress and challenges of this system. 

When: Tuesday, May 21 from 12:15 p.m. to 1:15 p.m.

Where: Maison du développement durable
50 Ste-Catherine St. West, Montreal

RSVP: comm@lamdd.org
