IL – Fair Trade Campaigns ConferenceLeave a comment
October 26, 2012 by Dr. G
From October 26-28, I attended the Fair Trade Campaigns Conference for Fair Trade Towns and Fair Trade Universities held in Chicago, Illinois. I also spoke on a panel that Saturday morning about partnerships in Fair Trade campaigns, focusing on the connections between Penn State Brandywine (a Fair Trade University), Media, PA (the first Fair Trade Town in the United States), and Penncrest High School (the first Fair Trade public high school). The conference was an important one to have Penn State Brandywine represented at, as well as have our campus present to accept the award as co-winner of the Go Bananas for Fair Trade Challenge!
I wrote several blog posts about my time at the conference and what I learned. The posts are at the Fair Trade at Penn State Brandywine website – specifically, Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3.
