Fairtrade Schools Conferences

Esther and Samuel 2

We’re excited to share that booking is now open for a series of exciting Fairtrade Schools Conferences in London, Edinburgh, Liverpool and Cornwall this Autumn!

The highlight of the conferences will be two special guests from Ghana. Esther and Samuel, both aged 15 (pictured), are from cocoa growing communities. Their parents are cocoa farmers and are members of Kuapa Kokoo, the Fairtrade co-operative that co-owns Divine Chocolate.

Esther and Samuel are coming to the UK to talk to young people here about how Fairtrade makes a difference to their lives.
