Fairtrade Fortnight – 22nd Feburary – 7th March


‘Climate, Fairtrade and You’ is the theme of this year’s Fairtrade Fortnight campaign, 22ndFeb – 7thMarch.

Fairtrade Fortnight is going online this year, and there are two free festivals with a wide range of events to learn more about why a fairer deal and living incomes for farmers and workers are critical in tackling the climate crisis. There is something for everyone, from discussions between Fairtrade farmers, other experts and famous faces, to music, art, craft, poetry, entertainment, cookalongs, a family friendly Fairtrade version of Taskmaster and interactive workshops on sustainable living. Learn more about how Fairtrade helps to achieve the climate Standard Development Goals and its early plans for participating in Climate Change Conference 26.
