Each year, Marigold Fair Trade attends the Fair Trade Federation's Annual Conference. This year the conference will be held in Boston from September 10-12. Open to members and non-members alike-this is a great way to see the scope of the fair trade movement and connect with other folks involved. More on the conference:
From September 10-12, 2010, the Fair Trade Futures Conference will bring together entrepreneurs, students, advocates, faith community members, concerned citizens, interested individuals, and others in Boston, MA for the largest Fair Trade event in North American history!
The event will include seminars, workshops, site visits, discussions, social activities, and an exposition of 50+ Fair Trade vendors to educate and inspire about the holistic approach to business and poverty alleviation that Fair Trade provides.
