The Human Rights Centre of the University of Padua joins the challenge launched by Fairtrade.
On Friday May 13th, at 10:00 a.m. (room Iqbal Massih), professors, students of the bachelor’s degree in Political Science, International Relations and Human Rights, of the master degree in Human Rights and Multi-Level Governance, and volunteers of the National Civil Service at the University of Padua, are invited to have a coffee all together.
On May 13th through 15th, Fairtrade invites everybody to join the great challenge: reach the record of one hundred million cups of Fairtrade coffee.
The purpose of this challenge is to support farmers in their struggle against the economic and social consequences of climate change, which particularly damages coffee plantations, the first product to receive the Fairtrade’s brand.
The challenge will run across 23 countries.
Fairtrade is a global organization whose aim is to guarantee safe and sustainable conditions of life and work for the farmers of developing countries, promoting fair conditions of trade.
