Fairtrade conference draws near!

We’re looking forward to our 8th Fairtrade Primary Conference this Thursday when 68 young students from local primary schools will be joining us to learn about the difference Fairtrade can make to small farmers and producers in developing countries. This year we have Heather Thompson from Traidcraft as our guest speaker – and she will also be running one of the workshops where students will find out what life is like for a family of coffee farmers in Tanzania.

The Fairtrade Conference is one of the annual events we run with our funding from the Isle of Man Government’s Development Education and Awareness Raising Grant and we are also grateful to Tynwald President Steve Rodan MHK who graciously allows us to use Legislative Buildings as a venue.
