Community

We work in partnership to promote global issues and learning with youth and adult community groups.

Until the end of September 2017 we are working with the Friends of Seaton Park and The Allotment Market Stall, running weekly stalls in Seaton Park every Friday from 10am to 2pm, near the Fountain. Our stall is run by volunteers, selling fair trade products. If you would like to be involved, please contact mdec.nicholas@btconnect.com.

Other community partners this year include the University of Aberdeen and the village of Tarland.

In 2016 we worked with Aberdeen City Council and Aberdeenshire Council to deliver sessions entitled Refugees – Opinion, Myth or Fact? to people in the community working with Syrian refugees in their areas.

This area of our work is being further developed. If you have an idea for a project you’d like to explore with us, please get in touch with us at afairerworld@btconnect.com

There are many opportunities to get involved with Fairtrade in your community, be that a town, university, faith group, school or workplace. Find out more here: www.fairtrade.org.uk/en/get-involved/in-your-community
