Fairtrade Fortnight 2018 events- COME ON IN
Fairtrade Fortnight 2018 runs from 26 February to 11 March. Fairtrade Fortnight sees people across Wales and the UK raise awareness about Fair Trade and show support for the farmers an workers who produce the things we love; from bananas to footballs, cotton to tea. With Fairtrade we have the power to change the world every day.
The theme for 2018 is ‘Come on in’; inviting people to join in the Fair Trade movement, and learn more about how Fairtrade impacts the lives of producer communities across the world. Through Fairtrade, millions of poor farmers and workers are already coming together to demand a change. They are working hard to close the door on exploitation and transform their communities, supported by Fairtrade.
