As the first in the Czech Republic (also in the Central and Eastern Europe :-)), two towns fulfilled the requirements of the International Campaign and, on Wednesday, September 14, were granted the FairTrade Town status. So, Litomerice and Vsetin now stand alongside thousands of towns in the whole world – towns that, in their politics, take social responsibility into consideration and offer their citizens better access to the support of FairTrade.
The celebration on the main square in Litoměřice was great. People could taste the fairtrade drinks and desserts and listen to the swinging saxophone quartet. Also the performance of pupils from two primary schools was lovely. The atmosphere of the whole celebration was open, friendly and relaxed.
