360 Field Trips with STOP THE TRAFFIK and ELEVATE

STOP THE TRAFFIK Australian Coalition has regularly taken small groups of business representatives to participate in ‘360 Field Trips’ – trips that expose businesses to a 360 view of modern slavery. The trip program explores the cultural, contextual, community and business drivers of bonded and forced labor, exposing the complexity of the issues, how to address them, and opportunities to craft solutions.

For the September 2019 trips, STOP THE TRAFFIK is partnering with ELEVATE to merge on-the-ground lessons with the powerful insights of Asia’s most forward-thinking corporate and supply chain sustainability event, CSR Asia Summit 2019. Prepare for an impactful experience in Thailand, with some of our trip participants also traveling to Cambodia.

They are the Australian Directors of STOP THE TRAFFIK and have extensive human rights and international development experience, including working the prevention of Modern Slavery for over 15 years each.

“Four generations of my family have been in the ‘rag trade.’ I think I doubled my insight by viewing modern slavery through all these lenses.” 

“Despite many ‘field visits’ to our factories over the years, my questions about how and why labour abuse and slavery like practices happened were not answered. Then I was exposed to the contextual drivers first hand and I got it.”
