Winchester University has once again seen the return of Fairtrade Fortnight. Starting on February 25th and running to March 10th, the University has been spreading awareness of the non-profit organisation to promote justice and sustainable development in trade structures.
Winchester Student Union and the University’s Catering Department have been holding a number of events such as Fairtrade product tasting, football events and promoting Fairtrade fashion.
I spoke to Allison Jones, the Ethical and Environmental Officer at the University to talk about her views on the importance of spreading awareness about Fairtrade and it’s success in Winchester.
