Guest speaker: Koen Van Troos, head PR & Advocacy at Fairtrade Belgium

You are here:

Our students will have the pleasure of welcoming their latest guest speaker, Koen Van Troos, Head of PR & Advocacy at Fairtrade Belgium, as part of their bachelor programme’s “Global Concerns” module. In his current position, Koen aims to advocate for EU and Belgian policies and programs that contribute to living incomes for smallholder producers, as well as living wages for workers in international value chains. With his background in political sciences, Koen has thorough experience in advocacy focusing on issues such as food security, rural development, global value chains, and fair trade. His mission aligns perfectly with one of UBI’s important guiding pillars: good citizenship.

We warmly invite our alumni to join us for this insightful session. Thank you again to Koen for dedicating your time to our students and to our own Christina Bache, PhD, for organizing such an insightful session!

Date: Friday 9th February
