SMALL CHANGE, GREAT IMPACT
The Fairly Educated Conference is back in 2016 and for the first time is being held at a regional university. This means you'll get the chance to see firsthand exactly how small, individual changes can combine to create a large and positive impact.
Whether you are already an advocate or someone who simply wants to know more about the principles of Fair Trade and how they can be applied to drive change, this conference will suit you. Likeminded people from across Australia will be brought together to network with passionate leaders from Fair Trade companies and humanitarian organisations as well as politicians, empowering entrepreneurs and event management specialists. This will provide you with not only the knowledge regarding what is currently being done to tackle the major issues of the world, but also how you as an individual can make a great impact and be one of the future leaders of social change.
If you are part of a club or society, then you can ask your student association or club to fund you as the conference is focused on leadership and development.
Visionary: ‘A person with original ideas about what the future will or could be like’
The conference will capture this notion by inspiring delegates to truly make a difference in the world.
Networking with other likeminded and passionate individuals, delegates will be immersed in the values and principles of Fair Trade. Small workshops explaining both the characteristics and importance of Fair Trade and Fair Trade accreditation will run throughout the afternoon. The focus is on helping delegates realise their individual potential to make change and to create goals that will allow them to achieve this. The evening will be a relaxed, social Oxjam event with local bands performing; showcasing how charity events can be both fun and productive.
Day 2: Small Change, Great Impact
Featuring keynote speakers, workshops and a political panel, the second day focuses on developing ideas and learning from the inspirational experiences of individuals who have enacted great change in the world. With sustainability a major topic, delegates will hear from business leaders who have made valuable social changes and who display the best practice in sustainability areas. Group workshops in the afternoon will allow further networking and a chance to develop your own initiatives and ideas.
Day 3: Development of Visionaries
The final day is a culmination of everything previous, with delegates learning how to put into practice the principles and ideas learnt throughout the conference. With the focus on creating leaders that are passionate and capable, day 3 will involve the preparation of personal and university development plans.
Delegates should leave the conference passionate and prepared to initiate their goals for the future, knowing that they are supported and part of a bigger picture of social change.
