TEAM UP/Events


When: The world’s biggest conversation on tea sustainability will take place at the RADISSON BLU HOTEL, Nairobi on Wednesday 10th May 2017 on the eve of the EATTA conference (11-12th May).

Why: If you’re interested in learning about best practice gender equality programmes; the future of tea growing in East- Africa; understanding how the latest landscape approaches are protecting national parks and natural resources; or you simply want to hear the latest innovations in the sector and some lively, open, and honest debates about some of the trickiest issues and how to address them, then make sure you keep Wednesday 10th May free.
