Global Climate Strike Week | Doi Chaang 'Sustainability' Breakfast 'n Learn:

Global Climate Strike WeekOn September 26th, in support of the Global Climate Strike Week we welcomed a coffee expert from Doi Chaang to our newly opened Fair Trade Corner to host a ticketed event and discuss all the ways in which Canterbury, and Doi Chaang specifically, work to not only protect human rights, but also the land. 

We then had a lively Q&A and enjoyed some unique-to-UTM lattes in free reusable Hospitality & Retail Services ceramic reusable mugs for attendees to take back and reuse in the future. Global Climate Strike Week

Breakfast 'n Learn with Doi Chaang:

Fair Trade Coffee Breakfast 'n Learn On March 13th we hosted a Breakfast 'n Learn with Doi Chaang. Students, staff and faculty enjoyed some Ethiopean and Guatemalan Fair Trade coffee.

They learned about what it means to be Fair Trade, about the origins of coffee, modern trends in café's today, and the bean to café process.
