In cooperation with the European Committee of the Regions, the Fair Trade Advocacy
Office is organising the EU conference ´´From local to EU level: Scaling up
Fair Trade in Europe´´. The conference aims to facilitate an exchange among
EU local authorities on how they are supporting Fair Trade and how the EU could
support the upscale of their local Fair Trade projects. The exchanges will aim
to develop specific recommendations to the EU on what should be done to further
support local authorities’ work on Fair Trade. The outcomes of the discussions
will be summarised in a publication, which will be released by the end of 2018.
