Workshops

Trading Visions can come to your school to deliver an interactive workshop telling the bean to bar story of how Fairtrade cocoa gets turned into chocolate, and what your students can do to make the world a better place.

Just to say a big thank you for today too, the feedback from the teaching staff has been incredibly positive and just the reaction of the students asking so many questions is a great testimonial to how interested they were.
