The aims of the conferences are always to help pupils learn about the benefits of Fairtrade and how they can promote Fairtrade in their schools. The conferences offer opportunities for pupils to learn about issues around trade and Fairtrade in an engaging and interactive way. Usually the conferences also offer an opportunity to meet and hear from a Fairtrade producer.

We have collated a range of Fairtrade producers' presentations and other resources from DDE Fairtrade events from the last 10 years, for schools and community groups to use.
