Goal 5: Group
The Steering Group
“A local Fairtrade steering group is convened to ensure the Fairtrade Town campaign continues to develop and gain new support.”
The steering group meets regularly. Suggested period: over at least one year. Members represent a range of local organisations and sectors.
We established a steering group in 2011 and since then have been meeting on a monthly basis.
Works towards goals
The steering group leads ongoing action around the Fairtrade Town goals, submits the initial application for the area and all applications to renew Fairtrade status thereafter.
The steering group has responsibility for ensuring that events are organised during Fairtrade Fortnight each year.
Since 2012 we have been hosting and supporting many local events across the Peterborough area.
