The Fairtrade Coffee Game
Many of us enjoy a cup of coffee, but do you know the various trades which take place on your coffee's journey from bean to cup? Join the NTU Green Academy and NTU Global Lounge to play a game where you will flex your negotiation skills and learn about the global coffee supply chain. The game will be followed by a discussion on FairTrade. All students and staff welcome. This event is being run as part of FairTrade Fortnight and the NTU Sustainability Action Week.

From the 21st Feb-6th March 2022, the Fairtrade Foundation are hosting a range of online events and resources to further awareness of Fairtrade. Free for all, there will be several talks, workshops, films and more to promote understanding and behaviours towards ethical growing and purchasing.
