2024-09-20  2024-09-22

This year's International Fair Trade Cities Conference will take place in Drakenstein, South Africa from 20-22 September.

It is recommended to combine the Fair Trade Towns Conference trip with the WFTO's annual summit, which will take place from 16 to 20 September in the neighbouring city of Cape Town, only about 20 kilometres away. More about the WFTO summit here.

The aim of the International Fair Trade Towns Conference is to strengthen and further the participating towns' Fair Trade activities, find synergies among them, and increase the value creation of fair trade around the world. On the agenda will be in-depth analyses, practical examples, engaging plenary discussions, interactive workshops, and networking opportunities. The attendees, who will include like-minded professionals, industry peers and potential collaborators, will also do site visits in the surrounding Cape Winelands rural areas.
