Fair Trade Fair – April 25th – 28th, 2019

The Fair Trade is a trade and consumer trade fair and at the same time an information and contact exchange. Importers, traders, church and state institutions, companies and associations, media, decision-makers from politics and society, non-governmental organizations and actors as well as interested consumers meet here.

Visitors can expect a variety of products and offers of the highest quality. From food or handicrafts from fair trade to eco-fair fashion and information on development cooperation, sustainable investments to climate-conscious and ethically and socially just travel offers.

The trade fair will be accompanied by an attractive and informative event Fringe events instead of. Special topics and highlights are:

  • What do fairness mean in trade today? Thursday, April 25, 2019, 14:30 p.m., Messe Stuttgart, East Entrance, ICS, C5.1

SEZ, Weltladendachverband eV and Forum Fairer Handel eV invite you to a discussion with experts and practitioners. As an industry meeting and the largest public event on fair trade in Germany, the trade fair is the framework for discussing current concepts of fair trade and creating a basis for commitment to fair trade.

Impulse from Manuel Blendin, Managing Director of the Forum Fairer Handel eV Podium with Dr. Norbert Copray (GF Fairness Foundation), Jutta Kister (author “On Growth and Values ​​– Global Value Chains in Fair Trade”), Steffen Weber, (GF Weltladendachverband eV)

  • Award works! Saturday, April 27th at 15:30 p.m., Messe Stuttgart, Hall 3, Welt:Bühne

The award recognizes the commitment of citizens in Baden-Württemberg who are committed to sustainable development worldwide. The sponsoring organizations of development policy projects in 2018 through the Funding program “works!” received an award from the SEZ together with representatives from state politics. The new funding program “beffekt!” combines the previously separate funding lines for projects at home and abroad with funds from the state of Baden-Württemberg. It was allocated one million euros each for 2018 and 2019. This meant that in 2018, almost twice as many projects were able to benefit from funding compared to the previous year.
