2021-2022: SSHRC Connection workshops
Funded by a SSHRC Connection grant, we will organize a series of virtual and in-person engagement sessions with the goal of gathering and exchanging academic and practitioner knowledge on the advantages and challenges of traders as sustainability governance actors, and co-create a transdisciplinary research agenda.
Given COVID, we will kick off 2021 with some first virtual activities, and aim to organize an in-person workshop in Victoria, B.C. in July 2022.
Initial participants include representatives from companies involved in trading cocoa, palm oil, and coffee; academics; and experts from NGOs and consultancies. Contact us if you are interested in also participating!
