We have decided to call 2017 “The Year of Hope”
2016 was not a good year for Brussels, Europe or the World. Yet at the same time, as a reaction, plenty of citizens got together to reflect on what happened, started up new projects, joined political parties, associations, … so there´s a brighter side to the 2016 coin too …
So, against this background, at the Fair Trade Advocacy Office we have decided we are going to call 2017 The Year of Hope. A year when more people realise we have more in common than that which divides us, a year when we gain more trust in each other, a year when policy-makers adopt forward-looking policies to ensure lasting peace and to shape markets in a way that people and planet are first.
Receive our best wishes for a prosperous and fair 2017
