MEETINGS WITH FAIR COFFEE
In June 2012 founders of Buna prepared the first meeting with fair coffee, which turned out to be so interesting that we started to repeat it. To date, we have prepared close to 30 meetings across Slovenia. In about two hours we explain how the Fair Trade system works and we use coffee as a case study. At the end of the meeting we prepare freshly roasted coffee Buna for the visitors to get a taste of a fair coffee.
The first high school that we started working with to raise awareness about Fair Trade was High school Ptuj. In the first year of cooperation the students prepared a questionnaire for the habitants of Ptuj about their knowledge of Fair Trade. And after that they made a short film about Fair Trade coffee. This year we are working on a projevt Fair Do which includes designing a product, preparing a business plan and working with a fair trade organization Kafuli in Burkina Faso. In autumn of 2014 first products from this project will be available on Slovene market. The project is carried out in cooperation with 3MUHE, Association Humanitas and Culture and ecological association Smetumet.
