  • Do you work for an NGO?

  • Do you work on trade and development issues in Africa, Latin America and Asia?

Then join us for our first-ever Civil Society HiveTalks on 1 October, on the eve of the World Trade Organization's Public Forum.


Keeping with the WTO Public Forum's topic: "Trade 2030", the HiveTalks will focus on what's needed to get the global trading system to work better for people and planet by 2030.

But it will break from the standard panel discussion set-up.

There will be no speeches, no prepared statements. Just interactive, hands-on discussion.

The concept plays on the idea of a beehive, where participants move between different discussion tables, giving their views on the issues. In the process, we draw on our collective intelligence and diverse experiences to come up with strikingly innovative ideas.

We'll be looking at issues such as making sure digital technologies don't leave certain parts of the population further behind, crafting a trading system that decreases inequalities and offers opportunities to all, and strengthening the resilience of vulnerable populations to economic and financial crises.

The event will take place at the Graduate Institute's Auditorium Jacques-Freymond, right next to Villa Barton (next to the WTO).

We'll kick things off at 17:30 and will wrap things up around 20:30.
