Last year, we ran a series of regional meet-ups where we heard similar challenges from groups across the country, along with the request for inspiration and ideas, so this year, we arranged a national event to allow for the sharing of some of the great work going on around Scotland.
When attendees signed up, we asked them what they would like to find out more about, and the answers are displayed here.
We heard from five speakers: Karena Jarvie, Perth and Kinross Fairtrade Zone Group; Sue Milne, Gavin’s Mill; Jen Buchan, Scotdec and former teacher; Courtney Duncan, University of St Andrews; and Lesley Henderson, Balerno Fairtrade Village Group.
Thank you to each of the speakers who gave us some great ideas and inspiration.
Please find the information shared during the meeting in the chat.
Below are the presentations and / or the information shared during the presentations, which we hope you find really useful.
