Please make every effort to join the call. New organizers, interested parties, and established Fair Trade Towns are all encouraged to join in. We will be focusing this call on Fair Trade Month in October. We will spend some time brainstorming event ideas and learning more about what some campaigns are already planning. We will also discuss how to add your events to the new website as well as the Fair Trade Month website to gain more visibility for your events, as well as how to document and share your successes with the rest of the Fair Trade Towns community.
