West Coast Convergence - Food, Justice, and Fair Trade

on January 28, 2008

USFT is joining forces with the California Student Sustainability Coalition to create a superconvergence! This President’s Day weekend, hundreds of youth and student leaders in the fair trade and sustainability movements will be joining us at UC Santa Cruz for a weekend of workshops, discussions, training, and fun. This conference will provide a means to:


  • Develop and strengthen inter-school connections and collaboration in order to deepen and expand the Sustainable Food & Fair Trade movement
  • Increase the number of skilled, knowledgeable and confident youth leaders throughout the Western United States.
  • Broaden the scope of the convergence to integrate Fair Trade & Sustainable Food-based Initiatives in an effort to foster new alliances and partnerships toward creating more just and sustainable communities and institutions.
  • Form relationships, light fires, and have fun.
