United Students for Fair Trade (USFT) & Fair Trade Universities
The 'Igniting a Movement: Fair Trade Universities' National Convergence is open to anyone interested in giving their university or high school official Fair Trade status. It’s an opportunity to learn more about Fair Trade, to share experiences and challenges in becoming a Fair Trade institution, or to find out more about how to start a Fair Trade campaign.
This conference is open to all university and high school students, professors, administrators and catering staff - anyone who wants to get involved really – and it’s set to be a good and productive weekend.
There’ll be workshops and discussion sessions and the chance to browse a market of national Fair Trade Vendors and stock up on Fair Trade goodies.
