SAVE THE DATE: National Towns & Universities Fair Trade Conference
Friday – Sunday, October 26-28, 2012
As Fair Trade Campaigns Director here at Green America, I serve on the Fair Trade Towns Steering Committee. Fair Trade Towns is a movement to create official “Fair Trade Towns’ across the country in order to increase awareness of and demand for Fair Trade products.
To bring together Fair Trade enthusiasts from across the nation, Fair Trade Towns & Colleges/ Universitieswill be organizing the 2nd annual National Conference in Chicago on the weekend of October 26-28. The 3-day gathering will focus on providing tools, education materials, and leadership training for Fair Trade Campaigns, as well as motivating and attracting new people to Fair Trade.
Stay tuned for more information on registration, lodging, scholarships, and volunteer opportunities. Until then, find out more about last year’s conference here, and make sure to check out this video from last year’s conference!
