The first objective of this event is for participants to learn from and value different realities of Fair Trade in different countries.
The 10th Int. Fair Trade Towns conference will be held in Baskinta, Lebanon on 1 – 3 July 2016. This will be the 1st time the conference will be held in the global south. It is hoped it will inspire and motivate a budding Fair Trade Towns movement across the Middle East and North Africa and send a powerful message redefining the relationship between the North and the South from a one-way to a two-way relationship.
