Fair Trade Night!!!

Köln ist Hauptstadt des Fairen Handels. Die 4. Fair Trade Night
widmet sich den vielfältigen Facetten des fairen Handels.
In lockerer Atmosphäre präsentieren Unternehmen sich und ihre
breite Palette fairer Produkte. Vereine und Initiativen informieren
über den fairen Handel im Allgemeinen, konkrete Projekte und
nachhaltige Lebensstile. Die Gäste können faire Alternativen zu
herkömmlichen Produkten an- und ausprobieren oder auch kaufen.

Fair trade is a social movement whose stated goal is to help producers in developing countries achieve better trading conditions. Members of the movement advocate the payment
of higher prices to exporters, as well as improved social and environmental standards. The movement focuses in particular
on commodities, or products which are typically exported from developing countries to developed countries, but also consumed in domestic markets (e.g. Brazil, India and Bangladesh) most notably handicrafts, coffee, cocoa, wine, sugar, fresh fruit, chocolate, flowers and gold. The movement seeks to promote greater equity in international trading partnerships through dialogue, transparency, and respect. It promotes sustainable development by offering better trading conditions to, and securing the rights of, marginalized producers and workers
in developing countries. Fair trade is grounded in three core beliefs; first, producers have the power to express unity with consumers. Secondly, the world trade practices that currently exist promote the unequal distribution of wealth between nations. Lastly, buying products from producers in developing countries at a fair price is a more efficient way of promoting sustainable development than traditional charity and aid.

Politische Impulsvorträge und Talks bieten weitere Informationen
und die Möglichkeit zum Austausch.
