Monday 7 October

Monday 7 October the opening of the Fairtrade week at University Hasselt will take place! 

The week will be filled with activities and info moments. Don't forget to register for the Movie night and interactive dialogue!

Can't wait to see you there!


Tuesday 8 October

On Tuesday you can find us at campus Diepenbeek with little Fairtrade appetizers between 12 and 2! This is in collaboration with the UHasselt Student Council.

Oxfam Wereldwinkel Hasselt will also be there so if you find an appetizer you really like (and you will!!!), you can also buy more right there!

The appetizers will be a little foretaste of what you will be able to buy from our vending machines in the corridor of building D and at Campus Hasselt.... Yes indeed, from now on, we also provide Fair Trade products, because we think this is important!



Wednesday 9 October

On Wednesday you can come relax with the movie "Capharnaüm", which will be played at 7PM and will last until 10PM at the latest in the small aula (Louis Roppe) in Hasselt.

This English & French spoken movie (English subtitles), selected by Afrika Filmfestival and with a rating of 8.5/10 on IMDb, is about the heart-breaking story of a 12-year old boy who sues his own parents for neglect. Fair Trade is also about the fight for children's rights, and against child labour....
