Try and let as many people as possible know about your plans to achieve Fair Trade status. Why not organize an open meeting to tell people about Fairtrade and get them excited about becoming a Fair Trade Town? You could invite local stores to donate some Fairtrade products to sample and talk about your plans for the community to be Fair Trade designated.
Let your local municipal authority know what you are doing and find someone supportive to champion Fair Trade. This could be a Councillor or an officer with responsibilities concerning sustainability, the environment or community planning.
We have promotional materials that you can use that will help promote and engage as well as garner support for your upcoming Town designation.
Contact our Outreach Coordinator for any additional information or material to help move your efforts forward.
