Fairtrade University Status has been Renewed

We are proud to announce the University of Lincoln and the Students’ Union has renewed its Fairtrade University Status

Since the previous renewal back in 2015, the University and Student Union staff have worked together to continue being committed to promoting Fairtrade products and the issues around Fairtrade to students and staff.

As part of this process, the University has successfully met the five goals required to qualify as a Fairtrade University. The five goals are:

– Passing a Fairtrade policy statement
– Getting Fairtrade products on campus
– Using Fairtrade Products at meetings
– Organising Fairtrade campaigns
– Setting up a Fairtrade Steering Group
