n a world of global communications networks – what does the future of Fair Trade look like?

At the Fair Trade Futures conference in Oxford on the 7th November that’s one of the themes we’ll be exploring with a session on Digital Media and Fair Trade, and with a number of social media session planned for the afternoon of Open Space discussions.We’re also hoping to bring social media into the heart of the programme, with blogging, twittering and video interviews taking place at the event.

In the Digital Media & Fair Trade slot we’ll be hearing from the team behind the recently completed Fair Tracing project that has been exploring how digital technologies can be used to capture the entirity of the supply chain story of a product.

Plus we’ll be hearing a panel of social media experts who have been using the internet to raise awareness of social causes and important issues, and we’ll be reflecting on what social media means for producers, promoters and consumers of Fair Trade.

If you are interested in what digital media means for the future of Fair Trade – then we’d love to have you as part of our shared discussions. You can find out more about the Fair Trade Futures conference and book a free place at the conference here.
