Fair Trade Events

What events have you hosted that have had the biggest impact in your community?

Asked by Nickolas Faynshteyn in Congregations, Schools, Towns, Universities, Fair Trade Events

Was there some event you’ve hosted that attracted a lot of people? Or that visibly left an impact on those that attended? Have you had an experience with an individual or a group who attended who became really involved in the Fair Trade movement after your event? Was there an event that marked a turning point in your campaign (i.e. was the final push to get your town, city, school, college, etc. declared)?

How to attract media interest for an event?

Asked by Anna McMahon from Bethlehem, New York in Towns, Fair Trade Events

In Bethlehem NY we have a long-running event, a Black Friday Fair Trade Market, featuring 20 vendors selling beautiful handmade crafts. Last year we struggled to find a new angle to attract local media interest. Can anyone suggest ways to draw renewed interest and create a “story” around this event?

Ben & Jerry’s Collaboration on Campus?

Asked by Benjamin Conard from Private: FAIR TRADE SUNY GENESEO in Universities, Fair Trade Events

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!
