Fair Trade Ambassador Recruitment 2020/2021

October 19, 2020

Have you heard of the Fair Trade Ambassador program at SFU yet?

The Fair Trade Ambassador Program is about bringing people into the fair trade community and creating leaders who can help to spread the fair trade message across the country. With 1.66 million farmers and workers within the global Fairtrade system, you can play a very real and direct role in ensuring that they live more sustainable livelihoods and build stronger, more resilient communities.   

The Ambassador Program recognizes individuals for demonstrating strong commitment to fair trade through their passion and dedication. It’s designed to support the fair trade leaders of today and empower the fair trade leaders of tomorrow. The length of your commitment is one year.

If you are passionate about sustainability and social justice, this flexible learning experience can help you mobilize your interests to make tangible, lasting impacts. Through the program, you'll have access to:

  • Education and resources all about Fair Trade, like different products as well as topics on climate change, gender inequality, workers rights, and child enforced labour
  • Connections to an inspiring, like-minded global community, including fair trade leaders across Canada and global producers
  • The opportunity to design your own campaign according to your interests and goals
  • Outreach efforts to mobilize your community
  • Hours for your co-curricular record!
