Steering Group Meeting for “FairTrade University” Certification
- Event location:
- Online Event
- Target groups:
- Employees of the Geisenheim University
Hochschule Geisenheim University wants to obtain certification as a FairTrade University, which is awarded by “TransFair Verein zur Förderung des Fairen Handels in der Einen Welt“ – an association to promote fair trade practices. The Student Parliament and the Academic Sensate have unanimously given their go-ahead to compete in the certification process, which started off as a student initiative. As part of the certification process, the university has set up a steering group consisting of students, academic and administrative & technical staff as well as professors. The group is chaired by University President Prof. Dr. Hans Reiner Schultz.
The steering group brings together interested parties and individuals and is responsible for communicating fair trade and its related issues both internally and externally. The group organizes events and ensures that regulations are complied with. But promoting fair trade practices is not enough. At events and as part of our communication we even want to take an additional step by spreading awareness for organic production, sustainability, food waste and resource efficiency.
If you would like to get involved in the steering group, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
