The square in Litomerice was truly bustling with people on Friday of 15. 6. 2012. For it has already been 10 years since Litomerice became an important partner of Healthy Cities of the Czech Republic and can boast the title of Healthy City. The celebrations took place with active participation of individual partners from the ranks of city-funded institutions and non-state non-profit organisations that prepared their creative workshops on the square as a part of their presentation.
In the course of celebrations, the town mayor Mr Ladislav Chlupac and the Minister of Defence and Senator Mr Alexander Vondra handed over the Litomerice Town Fair Trade Establishment Certificates to ten shops and restaurants. Awarding of the certificate expresses the thanks and support of Litomerice Town to all shops and restaurants that participated actively in the support of fair trade by offering products that come from fair-trade sources.
Litomerice Fair Trade Town information stand with tasting of fair trade products was available on the square during the whole event. The afternoon was livened up by volunteers in banana costumes who offered fair-trade bananas to taste as well as educational leaflets „Do you know what you’re peeling?“.
