Ensuring an organic & fair Europe: IFOAM EU and Fair Trade will collaborate on European elections May 2019
In the spirit of their long history of collaboration, the organic and fair trade movements have decided to team up to raise the awareness of candidates for the European elections on the responsibility of the next European Parliament to transform our production and consumption models towards sustainability.
The networks involved, including development organisations and proponents of the social economy, will prepare tools for their national members that they can use to approach candidates and discuss their visions for Europe. Rather than a full-blown campaign, this is a light approach aimed at making possible quality discussions with politicians who are not necessarily “natural” supporters of organic farming or fair trade. This will be a good opportunity for IFOAM EU’s members to cooperate with the fair trade movement at the national level and we count on your active involvement in the coming months!
