Description

Please join us for an engaging evening at the Al Whittle Theatre in Wolfville with Dr. Gavin Fridell, Canada Research Chair, International Development Studies from St. Mary’s University in Halifax as he shares with us thoughts on the Return of Fair Trade.

Starting at 6PM you’re invited to a reception offering the opportunity to meet Dr. Fridell, review some of his work and, if you wish, get a copy of one of his books signed! In addition to spending time with Dr. Fridell and other guests, an offering of local beer and wine as well as a fair trade certified wine will be available for purchase.

Beginning with a lecture at 7PM followed by a period of question asking, Dr. Fridell will touch on the history of fair trade and its political roots. Then, drawing on personal experience in St. Vincent as well as in Canada, Dr Fridell will reflect on the corporatization of the model –despite the intent of many activists to keep its meaning broader. Finally, a new way forward shall be discussed.
