"24th January 2023" - HOW TO TACKLE GLOBAL INEQUALITIES? - Invitation to an Online-Workshop, Tuesday 24th of January 23 4-6pm CET
Invitation to an online workshop
The global inequality regarding economic and social disparities has various
reasons; among them historical ones such as wars and colonialism on the one
hand and unequal conditions within our trade, tax and finance systems on the
other hand. The lack of access to social securitys, health care and education
exacerbates the situation of millions of people worldwide.
The consequences of Covid-19 continue to increase inequality: during the
pandemic, poor people became poorer whereas the number of billionaires rose
SDG 10 addresses inequality as a major challenge: “Reducing inequalities and
ensuring no one is left behind are integral to achieving the Sustainable
Development Goals. Inequality within and among countries is a persistent
cause for concern.”
In our workshop, we want to discuss two well-established approaches to tackle
the problem of unequal financial and economic conditions: the concept of
microfinance by Oikocredit and the Fairtrade system.
- What are their respective contributions to fighting global inequality?
- How to they complement each other?
- In which ways can Fairtrade and Oikocredit contribute to empowering
people and trade partners all over the world?
- Which critical perspectives and considerations need to be discussed?
- Which innovative and so far, little known approaches need to be
