Event Details

Join us for Siena College's 3rd Annual Fair Trade Colleges and Universities Regional Conference! The conference theme this year is Food Justice. The conference will bring together students, faculty/administrators, and others who are involved in fair trade/ food justice campaigns on their campuses, or who just want to learn more about fair trade and food justice. The aim of the conference is to harness of power of our institutions to raise awarness about the fair trade and food justice movements and increase the personal and institutional commitment to Fair Trade and Just Food practices. Ultimately we strive to facilitate life changing benefits for farmers, workers and artisans in Africa, Asia, Latin America and locally. The conference will have student panels, faculty research, a fair trade wine tasting and a Fair Trade Bazaar!
