The second decade of the 21st century is facing the European Union with unprecedented challenges, which encompass new threats: the crisis of immigration, the risk of terrorist attacks, the uncertainty about the member states that leave the organization, challenges to the idea of greater European integration and solidarity, raised by the populist movements in some member states as well as the anti-European resentment resulting from pending issues: massive migration, the destruction of the environment and the increase of inequality within the global perspective .
EFT is a two-year project focused on these worrying phenomena. Professionals from four totally different cultures will hold a series of meetings over the next 2 years in order to investigate and discuss the issue of fair trade and how they can help address the above problems, contributing to European objectives and the exchange of good practices.
The achievement of the objectives will have a positive effect on the lives, schools, local communities of its participants and, therefore, in Europe. With the help of the project, they will be better prepared to participate actively in the present and future challenges, the development of a model of a more equitable, conscious and responsible European society in the future.
