SCA Sustainability Foundation – International Online

International online training

Your cappuccino is delicious, but is it fair?

In this training we will discuss the three factors that influence a sustainable coffee future:

  • Economy
  • Climate
  • Social conditions

What about the coffee trade? We give you insight into the cash flow. Who earns what? What about labels like fair trade?

What influence does the climate have on the cultivation of coffee? And what interventions are needed to be able to grow coffee in the various coffee countries in the future.

Finally, we discuss the influence of social conditions in the coffee communities. What influence does the aging population have on the coffee trade and what about the division of roles between men and women?

We treat all the above topics in an interactive way with discussions, practical assignments and games.

We hope that we can inspire you in such a way that after the training you go home with various ideas with which you can implement sustainability in your work practice as a coffee professional.

Please note: there are no entry requirements for the training, but we recommend following the SCA Introduction to coffee training and/or SCA Green Coffee Foundation prior to the training.

The online training is divided over 3 days, 2.5/3 hours per day.
