CETS are sponsoring an event at Glasgow University to help schools and colleges achieve Fair Trade status
Thursday, 10 March 2011, 9.30am to 12.30pm
Entry free of charge
the University of Glasgow will host an education summit to which representatives from all
schools, colleges and universities in the west are invited.
The summit is being led by members of the City of Glasgow Fair Trade Cooperative.
After an official opening we hope to welcome a producer from the developing world to
address the summit. There will be several presentations by groups who have successfully
achieved fair trade status in their institution.
After a break there will be sector-specific workshops and small meeting groups for people
with particular responsibility for procurement and catering, schools, and for staff and students
at colleges and universities.
The summit can accommodate 150 teachers, pupils, students, lecturers, administrators and
other responsible officers.
Lunch will be provided from 12.30pm.
Come and share your experiences and find out how to achieve fair trade status, how to
maintain the status, and what you can do to contribute to the City’s profile as a fair trade city.
