This year Brent Council is marking Fairtrade Fortnight by hosting a training session on Fairtrade, the system that enables people shopping in the UK to ensure fair incomes and decent working conditions for producers of commodities such as coffee, sugar, fruit and cotton. The purpose of the training is for participants to learn more about Fairtrade and to be equipped with information and skills to promote Fairtrade. There is no commitment involved in attending the training but those who wish to do so will qualify as Fairtrade Ambassadors to promote Fairtrade in the local community.
The training will involve listening to and discussing presentations and taking part in group exercises that explore questions that people often ask about Fairtrade. It will be led by Peter Moore of Brent Fairtrade Network at the Civic Centre on Wednesday 25 February, 7-9 pm. The training is open to everyone over the age of 18 who lives or works in Brent and will be informal, enjoyable – and free. Places are limited to 10 people so please contact Peter soon on firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in taking part or want to know more
