|Getting your message across|
Guidelines to prosper educational partnerships:
- At your next meeting have everyone make a list of campus organizations they are associated with. For example: sororities, clubs, associated student body, campus ministry, sports teams, departments, etc.
- Have members reach out to these organizations with the intention of aligning their goals/mission with Fair Trade and provide ways to “Fair Trade” their events and activities. Discuss long-term partnerships and invite them to your meetings.
- Here are some examples of ways to partner with others: help a club get Fair Trade T-Shirts, present for 5 minutes on Fair Trade at next meeting, co-host an event, suggest Fair Trade fundraisers, offer to help do research for new curricula, etc.
