Fairly Educated is a not for profit initiative that aims to unite university Fair Trade movements across the globe. Fairly Educated is a platform for tertiary Fair Trade campaigns all around the world to share their resources and experiences in order to further the Fair trade movement.
Fairly Educated is here to assist those of you who are in the process of seeking justice by promoting Fair Trade as well as providing resources and ideas for those of you who are thinking about beginning.
On the website you will find information about our annual Conferences.
