This panel discussion aims at engaging university students, academics, civil society, private sector and policy-makers in a debate on the concept of “economic growth” in the UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG 8), particularly around the vision for Fair Trade at the 2030 horizon.
This special event by the Club of Rome–EU chapter takes place in the framework of Belgium´s Fair Trade week, an initiative of the Belgian Development Cooperation. It is organised in cooperation with the University Foundation and the Fair Trade Advocacy Office.
Introductions by a panel of four experts will be followed by a debate with the audience and a reception. Participation is free of charge.
We would like to create a lively exchange between the panel and the audience and offer you the possibility to send a question you would like to be raised at the event. If selected, you can be given the floor to speak up in front of the panel. Send your proposed questions to FairTrade[at]clubofrome.eu
You can also share your questions and views (before, during and after the event) on Twitter using #FairTrade2030
If you have any logistical question, please also write an email to FairTrade[at]clubofrome.eu
