Fair Trade on Campus

Students have always been at the forefront of the Fair Trade movement. Whether it’s advocating on campus to convert their dining services or educating their peers through classroom discussions, the fair trade community on college campuses is vital to the success of our movement. Large institutional accounts drive enormous volumes of sales for Fair Trade companies and in turn the farmers that grow the food we enjoy every day. Organizing for Fair Trade on your campus has a direct impact not just on your community, but on farming communities around the world. It also sets a positive example for other universities and student groups to follow in educating, activating and organizing the broad support for fair trade among college students and transforming the way your schools and universities do business to better reflect their values. Hosting a Fair Trade event is an easy first step to get your campaign started and a fun and educational way to engage your peers in creating a movement for Fair Trade on your campus.
