3rd Fair Trade International Symposium

  • 14-16 May. After the first two Fair Trade symposium held in Montréal in 2002 and 2006, the 3rd International Symposium was held in Montpellier on the theme ‘New dimensions in fair trade: implications and challenges’.

    A Web Symposium was organised to make the Symposium more accessible to distant auditors and to reduce the ecological cost of international travels.
