UBC Fair Trade Week survey results Badiei, Sadia; DeRose, Kristin; Jung, Yoon; Liu, Linda; Wong, Peter; Yu, Helen


Introduction: As the first Canadian university to be titled a “Fair Trade Campus,” the University of British Columbia (UBC) launched its first ever Fair Trade Week (FTW), March 5-9, 2012, in order to raise awareness on the importance of the Fair Trade (FT) movement and promote its plethora of Fairtrade certified (FC) products across campus. We have set out to determine the degree to which this FTW has impacted students, staff, and faculty members through administration of surveys. We hope the results from this survey will be used by SEEDS and the Fair Trade Week Committee of UBC to purchase and sell more desirable FC products to students, further reinforcing its stance as a FT campus. Disclaimer: “UBC SEEDS provides students with the opportunity to share the findings of their studies, as well as their opinions, conclusions and recommendations with the UBC community. The reader should bear in mind that this is a student project/report and is not an official document of UBC. Furthermore readers should bear in mind that these reports may not reflect the current status of activities at UBC. We urge you to contact the research persons mentioned in a report or the SEEDS Coordinator about the current status of the subject matter of a project/report.”
