Cities for MDGs meeting – Slides now online

A few weeks back Oxford hosted the first of a series of EU ‘Local Government Meeting the Millennium Development Goals’ seminars, where our contribution focussed on Fairtrade.

We were delighted both to be able to present insights from Oxford’s long experience as a Fairtrade Town, and to hear from Jon Danzig (co-founder of Campaign Coffee) and Bruce Crowther (founder of the first Fairtrade Town in Garstang) – as well as to hear about Fairtrade campaigns in other European cities.

Slides from many of the speakers have now been made available on the EU project website, and you can also download them below (in PDF)
