Talk to us
In this section we will regularly outline a piece of work on which NovoTRADE would like to invite comments from others.
The paper below was written by two NovoTRADE members, Sasha Courville
and Maarten Rijninks, for the IFOAM Scientific Conference 2000 (Basel, August 2000). The paper was sponsored by Hivos and Novib. If you are involved in the organic or fair trade movement, please feel free to give your reaction in email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Through these kinds of activities, we hope
to provide IFOAM members with background research and information for an
informed discussion on the social agenda;
to strengthen the relationship between social justice and organic movements;
to stimulate the awareness-raising and capacity building process of companies
inside the organic, fair and ethical trade movements to fulfil demands
for socially responsible and environmentally preferable products.
