4C Online Seminars

In 2020, 4C conducted its first online seminar series in English and received positive feedback from the participants, who also expressed their interest in attending another round. We are pleased that our event was of value and benefit for so many of you and would like to invite you to our next online seminar series in January – March 2021 in Spanish. The series will keep the focus on sustainability challenges and solutions within the coffee supply chains, adding Latin American flavor to the seminar themes. We are looking forward to having you with us!
