Conference for Fair Trade Volunteers

Yesterday, I received a nice invitation letter from Finland. Very soon, an international network of volunteers who are promoting Fair Trade is meeting. I think it is very interesting. Lutheran churches and youth organizations are highly involved in advocating to have make trade fair for everybody and not just for the riches. Therefore, I think it is really a good thing to join this conference. Here is the invitation text:

“INVITATION
