Fairtrade Fortnight 2021
The climate crisis is happening now.
For Fairtrade producers, this is one of their biggest challenges. Low prices for their crops mean that they are struggling to fight back.
Fairtrade gives them higher income so they can meet their everyday needs and deal with the challenges of climate change.
Climate, Fairtrade and You
This Fairtrade Fortnight, schools and families across the UK will come together to learn about, and celebrate, the people who grow our food and drink and explore the topic of ‘Climate, Fairtrade and You’. Young people will have the opportunity to discover how their choices as individuals can make a difference to the lives of people around the world and the planet we share. #ChooseTheWorldYouWant
Here are three ways you can get involved in Fairtrade Fortnight 2021…
