National Kava Forum
Fair Canberra hosted the National Kava Forum in June 2021 where an array of delegations voiced concerns about the current laws and legislations for the importation and use of Kava (Piper methysticum) in Australia. The Forum focused on how access to Kava can be progressed further for the Pacific and Indigenous communities.
Fair Canberra have been proudly running a special program to feed some of the many of those doing it rough on our streets. We have been successfully running a special Friday evening BBQ, which now includes some wonderful entertainment, great food and company.
In collaboration with the Woden Hellenic Club, Fair Canberra brought its first Hellenic Festival to the Canberran community in March 2021.

In collaboration with Netball ACT, Fair Canberra has teamed up to run a special program of inclusion to give youth from disadvantaged or culturally diverse backgrounds an opportunity to interact and participate in main stream inclusion through sport.
