What will we do? – We are working towards achieving all 5 goals. We are currently meeting with local businesses, schools, churches and community organisations to get them involved and inspired to help take our campaign forward.
We will be running a series of events over the next 12 months to raise awareness, understanding and support for Fairtrade. The key event next year will be Fairtrade Fortnight which runs across the UK from 28 February to 13 March 2011. In 2010 there were over 1.1 million swaps to Fairtrade products during Fairtrade Fortnight and 12,000 events.
Our other events include: a stall at Scott’s Selkirk (December 2010); a Wine & Cheese Evening with Fairtrade wine and local cheese (April 2011); and a Fairtrade Fashion Show (Autumn 2011).
