Curated by The Kore Directive, this informative programme will look at how we can promote a better future for the coffee industry.

New for this year, our 'People and Culture' programme will highlight a number of crucial conversations to promote a better future for the coffee industry.

Cafes act as a 'third space' - a break for so many - and without the passion from its people the industry would lose the strong foundation it's been so long recognised for. Led and curated by The Kore Directive, a community-led non-profit organisation created to challenge convention within the coffee industry, the panel-led discussions will cover a variety of topics.

These include equity, inclusion, rights and responsibilities, mental health, and the development of initiatives through coffee.

The panel takes place on Thursday 2rd September. Please see below for our full timetable and list of speakers...
