Graduate and Fairtrade campaigner Ben Miller was awarded the Principal’s Medal 2009.

Ben was honoured for his ongoing work in Fairtrade campaigning.

His involvement in both Fairtrade initiatives at the University and within the city of Edinburgh have played a role in helping Scotland to become one of the first Fairtrade nations.

He has been an active member of the University Sustainability and Fairtrade Issues Group.

Outside the University, Ben served as the volunteer board secretary on the Scottish Fairtrade Forum, while still a student.

Ben is now based within the University’s Energy and Sustainability office, working on the Transition Edinburgh University project.
