Hi there! I am wondering if you have faced problems keeping your committee motivated in the midst of busy schedules, etc? How do you maintain momentum without overwhelming people or becoming overwhelmed yourself?
I am trying to get Fair Trade served after service and am wondering what companies and products you use.
I’m pulling together a list of organizations and institutions that facilitate Fair Trade Study Abroad and Immersion Trips . Who have you gone abroad with, where did you go, and how was the experience?
For Example I know Global Exchange does a great job with immersion trips, are there other groups that also provide these opportunities? Or universities that offer semester study abroad opportunities that include Fair Trade?
Add your thoughts so we can make sure to have as many options and groups represented as possible!
As we go into all the fun that summer entails, how do we keep Fair Trade at the top of our minds?
Word on the street is that SUNY Geneseo will be getting a Tim Hortons on campus within the next year and half. Has anyone had any experience working on fair trade specifically with Tim Hortons? Or maybe even advice about working with Starbucks that could relate?
How have you put together successful lectures in your town that get an interesting dialogue between people who are supporters of fair trade, are willing to speak about it the issues and local audiences?
One of the pitfalls of living in a beautiful place is that many people spend much of their off time as weekend warriors, especially in the warmer clearer months. Do any of you have any suggestions on ways to combine their love for say the ocean and getting a group to go with helping our Fair Trade town campaign locally?

Their wording is very vague and their (mediocre) standards are not certified by a third party investigator.
Does anyone have suggestions or experience in purchasing FT or ethically/sustainably sourced office supplies?
Ben & Jerry’s ice cream does not exist on our campus (and their closest Scoop Shop is an hour away) – what would be the best way to go about working with them? We have seen successful events on other campuses with them and would like to benefit from this as well!
