  1. Hello again Vincent!

    I love this question – my campaign at USD didn’t do anything this year for World Fair Trade Day specifically, but we hosted a Fair Trade Your Finals event the Friday before. We put out tea and chocolate in the library for students studying!

    Check out the social media hashtags #fairtradeday and #worldfairtradeday for posts from other Fair Trade supporters! I enjoyed seeing social media posts from Fair Trade USA, Fair Trade Campaigns, and companies like AlterEco and Prana!

  2. GREAT question, Vinnie. Most of our college and university campuses are finished with the semester by the time WFTD comes around. In fact, I think that there’s only around six campuses still in session. A lot of campuses choose to participate in Fair Trade Finals instead. I do know that a lot of communities campaigns held events across the U.S. — there’s a nice round-up in our latest blog post: http://fairtradecampaigns.org/2016/04/party-like-its-world-fair-trade-day/

  3. Thanks Kylie and Rosalie. Really great info.

    Since many college and universities are finished, what about some of those campaigns in high schools or communities? Any of you put on a great event worth noting?
