WWF-SAFM DECISIVEDEBATES: 'We need ethical food labels'

Oftentimes the solution to deeply contentious issues lies simply in 'reframing' the conversation. This is exactly what WWF and SAFM's DecisiveDebates series, launched in partnership with Fairtrade, will do – provide an opportunity for the public to directly engage with dynamic, outspoken experts as they tackle a range of hot topics.

In the DecisiveDebates series, each debating team has three chances to persuade the audience through opening, rebuttal and closing arguments. The audience participates by asking questions from the floor and exercising the power of the vote at the beginning and end of the debate in determining the stronger side.

The winning team is the one that gets the audience on its side, swaying the votes and achieving the greatest margin of change between the first and last votes.

You are invited to attend this new forum for intelligent debate: Be part of this movement aimed at advancing the conversation around the most pressing issues facing South Africans.

The WWF-SAFM DecisiveDebates series:
Encouraging debate on important environmental issues

Topic: South African consumers are increasingly required to make food choices based not just on price or quality but also on the environmental and/or social standards of a brand. This begs the question: What role do these labels play in improving food production practices and is this the best way to ensure social and environmental good practice?
