[Dublin] Fairtrade Farming and Climate Resilience in Palestine (IPSC)
Our planet is facing ecological and environmental disaster in our lifetime – and Palestinian farmers and agricultural workers need to be part of the global conversation, and the global solution.
To celebrate Faritrade Fortnight and World Wildlife Day 2020, we are excited to host a special public meeting about Fairtrade farming in Palestine and how farmers there are meeting the challenges of climate change. We invite you come along to discuss with two Palestinian fairtrade and environmental campaigners on the evening of Friday 28th February, at 6.30pm in The Teachers’ Club/Club na Múinteoirí, 36 Parnell Square West, Dublin 1.
Our guests will be Mohammed Ruzzi, who is manager of the Palestine Fair Trade Association, and Taysir Arbasi of Zaytoun, Palestinian fairtrade agricultural producers.
Mohammed speak about farming in terms of solutions to some of our climate and ecology crises, while Taysir will add reflections from Zaytoun’s perspective of a 15 year journey of selling into the Fairtrade market place and the support that comes from this export market.
Hosted by the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign as part of Israeli Apartheid Week 2020.
