Join Karen Hansen-Kuhn, Director of Trade and Global Governance at the Institute for Agricultural and Trade Policy, and Local Futures’ Director Helena Norberg-Hodge, for our second webinar on ‘free’ trade. Coinciding with the 3-year anniversary of negotiations on the proposed trade agreement TTIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership), this webinar will review where things stand with the TTIP and its cousin the TPP (Transpacific Partnership). It will also assess the threat that these and other ‘free’ trade treaties pose to localization, and food and farming in particular.
Wherever your focus lies – social justice, worker’s rights, climate change, food and farming, animal welfare, community health, environmental protection – it’s time to get “trade literate” and take part in the resistance against a destructive system that only benefits the 1%.
