Many of our parishes are ‘Fairtrade parishes’ (so much so that we are designated as a ‘Fairtrade Diocese’).
All supporters of Fairtrade are invited to this conference.
This will be a great chance for Fairtrade campaigners across the North (North East and Cumbria) to come together. There will be inspiring talks, opportunities to discuss new campaigning ideas and the chance to hear what other Fairtrade activists have been up to.
Highlights of the day will include:
- Workshops, news and updates from the Fairtrade Foundation – planning for Fairtrade Fortnight 2020 and their upcoming 25th anniversary celebration this year
- Fair Trade experts sharing insights on Fairtrade and the wider movement
- Inspiration and ideas from fellow Fairtrade campaigners in your region
All are welcome but registration for this free event is essential.
