FairandFunky Fairtrade Conference for Primary Schools

Date: 10 March 2017 10:00

Bringing together Primary Schools from across Calderdale the fairandfunky Fairtrade Conference at Halifax Minster will ignite enthusiasm and interest for Fairtrade in both students and teachers. All delegates will take part in creative and interactive workshops from Tom Palmer, Fair Grounds, fairandfunky and Pockets Theatre.

We’re delighted to welcome Tom Palmer to this year’s Conference. His workshop will engage students with Fairtrade through literacy and share his experiences he gained in Ghana researching his brilliant book ‘Off Side’. ALL students attending conference will receive a FREE copy of this book.

The Conference is supported by the Fairtrade Foundation and Eco-Schools so can be used as evidence to help schools progress on their Fairtrade Schools Award and ‘eco schools’ journey.

During lunch delegates will enjoy networking with workshop providers as well as shop in the ethical marketplace with fairandfunky.

The Conference will close with certificate presentations from Holly Lynch MP.

The Conference invites schools to bring 8 student and 2 teacher delegates at a cost of £120. Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information
