I'm at York St John and our University became Fairtrade earlier this year!

Hello Tom, what kind of things did you do to get students involved? Any and all information would be great.

Thanks, Imogen

Hi All, I've just set up Wish4 Fairtrade Ltd, and I know that universities and colleges are great hotbeds of Fairtrade interest. Although I live in Ireland, our www.wish4fairtrade.com snacks etc are made in UK, and I'm looking for opportunities to show them to people involved in the catering on campus.
I know its a bit of a 'selling job' (yep ! sorry about that) but if anyone would like to check out the products, or could help me just find ONE person in charge of buying Fairtrade, that would be great. Alan

I am impressed by how wellorganized you are in the US, when it comes to Fair Trade activism at the universities. - Wish Swedish universities could follow that path! Regards, Emilie

Absolutely, this is so exciting and I wish the new movement every success. If the students in the US cannot awaken the 'sleeping giant of Fairtrade' then who can?
