Hopineo was at the 5th edition of the FairPride festival

This festival is an initiative of the Federation Artisans du Monde. it is one of the biggest, dedicated to fair trade, ecology, and civic engagement and Hopineo was on site !

The Fairpride gather every year many actors from the fair trade sector. AlterEco, Ethiquable, Max Havelaar were here and made your taste buds travel : a little coffee from Ethiopia with its piece of chocolate, who could resist ?

During one day, volunteers and commited actors get together around “cafe-debates“, conferences, tastings, concerts, and projections. They exchange their experiences, share their good actions and commitment, around themes that are important to them. Ecology, fair gastronomy, their commitment in ethical projects in France or worldwide, useful and responsible travels.

If you have a project in mind but you cannot take the plunge, it is the time to come listen, exchange, talf, and go 🙂 !

We were alongside the first ethical and solidarity network : ATES (Association pour le Tourisme Equitable et Solidaire). Justine and Mahery presented Hopineo to the travelers and Marion explained why she joined this wonderful adventure!
