The Scottish Fair Trade Young People's Network is a group of 16-25 year olds who meet around six times a year to work on Fair Trade campaigns, contribute to the Forum's activities and connect to the wider Fair Trade network in Scotland. Keep up to date with the network on Twitter.
The network has been involved in the following projects:
Interviewing and filming Rwandan Fairtrade coffee producer, Aimable Nshimiye, during Fairtrade Fortnight.
Co-designing the Fair Trade Campaign Toolkit.
Managing the Scottish Fair Trade Forum's Instagram.
Members have the freedom to decide upon and take part in projects according to their interests and time they can commit to the network.
Join the network
Participation is open to young people aged between 16 and 25 years old.
You do not necessarily need to have had past involvement with Fair Trade - we are looking for people who are keen to develop their knowledge and most of all, are enthusiastic about working in a team to make a difference to the Fair Trade campaigning landscape in Scotland.
We particularly welcome applications from people who can embrace new and creative thinking.
We usually hold meetings in Glasgow or Edinburgh but will try to move out with the central belt over the next year. Members can also participate remotely via email and conference call.
Subsistence and travel expenses are covered.
