Aston University is committed to Fairtrade and has been a Fairtrade University since 2007. Details of how we support and promote Fairtrade are outlined in our Fairtrade policy.
Being a Fairtrade University means that we have made a commitment to supporting and using Fairtrade.
We ensure that Fairtrade products are available in as many places as possible on campus.
We also work hard to raise awareness of Fairtrade and the benefits that it brings to producers in developing countries with students and staff.
As part of our Fairtrade status, we arrange different events throughout the year to promote Fairtrade.
The annual wine tasting event is a very popular event with Aston staff.
Fairtrade Fortnight this year is 23rd February - 8th March 2015. To highlight this Aston University will be holding a number of events which we hope everyone will get involved in. Details of these events will be released very soon! In the meantime, have a look at the Fairtrade Foundations webpages here.
