The Fairtrade Coffee Club meets again!

lokakuun 22. klo 20:30

Hi everyone!

The Helsinki group's Fairtrade Coffee Club meets again! We are getting together on Monday 22nd Oct at 17.30 o'clock in Cafe Bar 9, Uudenmaankatu 9.

This time we'll discuss the every day life of Fairtrade banana growers in Ecuador. Pamela Arslan will tell us how it was to live there some months. We can discuss for example how Fairtrade works for small banana farmers.

Hope to seeing you!
