18-25? Love fashion, technology, food & drink?

Have fun discovering how you can help improve the lives of the people that make the stuff you love. Y4FT2010 – Youth for Fair Trade 2010 – is this year’s ultimate event for young people keen to find out more about Fair Trade.

Some of this year’s event highlights, building on last year’s successful conference, include:

  • Fair Tech – The importance of fair trade in the supply chain in the fashion industry and how technologies like social media can be used to promote fair trade campaigns
  • Talk to the Experts – Meet the experts and engage in debate with leading figures from organisations including Coventry University Fashion Department, Divine Chocolate and the Fairtrade Foundation
  • 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, 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…

This 3 day action-packed event is taking place from the 29th to 31st October 2010 at Coventry University.
