21st November 2011 – Oxford City Fairtrade Coalition Meeting – 5pm – 6.30pm
Town Hall (room tbc: check display in foyer)
Focus on planning for Fairtrade Fortnight 2012
The Fairtrade Coalition planning meetings are an opportunity for all groups involved in Fairtrade in Oxford to come together to discuss ways to work together to increase our impact. The core of this meeting will be dedicated to planning for Fairtrade Fortnight 2012, and is an open meeting. New attendees are very welcome.
Fairtrade Fortnight 2012 will take place from 27th February – 11th March 2012 and will mark the 20th anniversary since the launch of Fairtrade in the UK. It’s a great opportunity for community groups, workplaces, schools and local businesses to celebrate Fairtrade by running events and activites or special promotions.
The Oxford City Fairtrade Coalition is the space to come together and collaborate with others on Fairtrade Fortnight Activities.
We’re particularly keen to get involvement in this meeting from local businesses with ideas for how we can work with you to celebrate Fairtrade Fortnight, and volunteers with publicity expertise to help make sure Fairtrade Fortnight makes a real splash – and that everyone in Oxford is aware of it.
