We go shopping regularly. But what about fair prices? And what does fair trade actually look like? We will work on these questions together with Kurt Damm, a speaker from Fairtrade Germany, in an interactive workshop.
In addition to the presentation of the Fairtrade concept, we will deal with its effects in the ecological and social area using practical examples. Here, Mr. Damm will report on his experiences and challenges in working with small farmers in developing countries and show where there are still knowledge gaps in research today.
We also want to look at the situation in Germany and ask ourselves how fair trade is in our country.
In order to use the knowledge in our purchasing in everyday life, we will also get an overview of the different groups of Fairtrade seals and the differences between them.
