We will start at about 10 in the morning with some nice fair trade coffee, continue with locally sourced lunch, following by visits to artisanal shops, in order to buy some souvenirs from the region. #faircrawls are the best way to travel. we will meet all these wonderful people who make a lot of effort in order to preserve the environment and reinforce local community of diverse people :). you can take a look at our previous #faircrawls here:Swissparks #faircrawl: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6ZnHopgrmGdcRvU-IkE4us_M1MLxAotR and sign up for similar events onhttp://welcome.thefairtraveller.org/faircrawls/

    Hello, the day is getting closer and it's getting exciting. Lots of #fairspot have confirmed their engagement, now it's up to us to choose from them.

    We are looking for an engaged videomaker to film the event, so if you have some affinity towards that, please contact me. You are going to get free meals, coffee, beer and wine through the day for about 1,5 hours of filming in total (we'll provide you with the camera).

    Hope this sound appealing, please let me know if you want to participate in this way, but it's also ok if you just want to enjoy the event meeting new friends.

    See you soon. :)

    If you would like to see some of our previous videos, please watch this YouTube list from a #faircrawl in Switzerland, in 2016:


    You don't need to do the editing, if you don't wish to, and we accept students, amateurs and professional video makers to come and volunteer for a day (and have lots of fun with new, interesting people)

    The fair and sustainable way to get around New York is to use public transportation, so please take your metro card with you (after the first #fairspot, we are going to go together to get some for the group.
