As geography option students we prepared an action plan for this year 2015 was chosen by the EU Commission as ‘The Year for Development’. We focused on the issue of waste and the need to promote Fair Trade so as to lessen the inequality that exists between farmers in LEDCs and those in MEDCs. We did so by sending a series of emails to key persons at school, to the owner of the company hiring the coffee vending machine at school and to EU officials working at MEUSAC, the European Commission Representation in Malta and the European Parliament – Information Office in Malta. We hope that through our project more people will start drinking fair trade coffee for equality!
