  • Slum It – Experience first-hand what it feels like to work in some of the factories that make the clothes we wear
  • Discover your Taste – Sample both Fairtrade and non Fairtrade chocolate, wines, teas, coffees and soft drinks and see which ones you prefer
  • Make it Happen – Learn how to convert your school, college or university to Fairtrade.

PLUS films, workshops, food, music, networking and much more…
