Each year, the World Trade Organisation (WTO) holds its Public Forum, a large annual event made of a series of workshops and working sessions on a common theme. The aim is to provide a platform for stakeholders to discuss trade-related issues and it attracts regularly over 1,500 representatives from civil society, academia, business, the media, governments, parliamentarians and inter-governmental organizations.
This year’s Public Forum will take place, as usual, in Geneva on 2-4 October and the theme that has been selected is “Trade 2030”, with three sub-themes: sustainable trade, technology-enabled trade, and a more inclusive trading system.
In that context, Eurogroup for Animals applied jointly with Compassion in World Farming, the RSPCA, World Animal Net and Humane Society International to hold a workshop on “Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals: The Role of Animal Welfare in Trade Policy”, and we are proud to announce that our event has been selected and will thus take place in October in Geneva. The workshop will take place on 4 October from 5 to 6:30 pm, click here to register (please note registration is open until 16 September).
