Rosemary Clarke & Vicky Christian were the Isle of Man Municipal Association’s Executive Committee guest speakers this evening.

Rosemary & Vicky gave an excellent presentation on “Fairtrade” and the Island’s status as a “Fairtrade Island”, which was endorsed by Tynwald.

Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers.

It’s about supporting the development of thriving farming and worker communities that have more control over their futures and protecting the environment in which they live and work.

There are currently have 4,500 Fairtrade products available around the World.

The key message to take away from tonight’s presentation is;

“Trade rather than aid”
