The University is very proud to be a Fairtrade-accredited University, and after completing all the work for our renewal submission, we received the good news in November that we have successfully maintained our Fairtrade Status for a further two years!
This year, Fairtrade Fortnight runs from 29 February – 13 March, and the theme is breakfast! To celebrate this and to raise awareness of the incredible work that the Fairtrade Foundation do, there are a number of things going on across campus.
There will be a Fairtrade Roadshow appearing in Keynes on Tuesday 1 March and Darwin on Wednesday 2 March, where people passing will be able to treat themselves to some Fairtrade goodies and speak to a representative about all things Fairtrade!
Alongside this, and to match the breakfast theme, departments across the University may have a helping hand to wake up in the morning with a Fairtrade breakfast hamper being delivered to their department at some point during the fortnight, with compliments from the Fairtrade Steering Group.
