Making Calgary a Fair Trade Town
Start date: 1 January, 2016
End date: 13 May, 2017
We are running a campaign to make Calgary Canada's next Fair Trade Town, which would demonstrate Calgary's commitment to ethical procurement. As such, requirements need to be met with regards to product availability, community support, and municipal government support.
Nature of the Project Reach
There are currently 21 Fair Trade Towns in Canada, with other Fair Trade towns all over the world. Being a Fair Trade Town would be a great achievement for Calgary to celebrate during Canada's 150th birthday.
Calgary to receive Fair Trade Town designation.
There are many other similar initiatives geared towards showing social responsibility, sustainability, and support for ethical procurement. There are many opportunities to collaborate, share information, and create synergies with similar projects.
