Fairtrade Fortnight 2018
Fairtrade Fortnight is an annual celebration that takes place in the spring. People across the UK raise awareness about Fair Trade by organising events to joining in with activities; from giant banana splits, to coffee mornings and Fair Trade races.
The theme for 2018 is ‘Come on in’; inviting people to join in the Fair Trade movement here in the UK, as well as inviting people in to learn more about how Fairtrade impacts the lives of producer communities across the world.
We’ve already started planning what we’ll be doing for Fairtrade Fortnight 2018, and have lots of exciting ideas. Take a look at different ways you can get involved. We will be updating this page on a regular basis.
Find out more about Fairtrade Fortnight on the Fairtrade Foundation’s website.
There are lots of resources about Fair Trade available, including many bilingual and Welsh language materials. Here are some of the ways you can get hold of Fair Trade materials:
- Order from our resources library. Leaflets, flyers, school packs and more (currently free of charge).
- Use our online resources. Presentations, films, schools resources.
- Go to the Fairtrade Foundation’s online resources page. (BILINGUAL RESOURCES WILL BECOME AVAILABLE)
- Order from the Fairtrade Foundation’s shop – including Fairtrade Fortnight materials. (Postage costs apply).
Borrow items from us for events. Including inflatables, banana suits and more (we will cover delivery costs to you and you will need to cover return costs).
In 2018, Wales will be marking its 10th year as a Fair Trade Nation.
We want to acknowledge the support for Fair Trade in Wales throughout the year, including in Fairtrade Fortnight. If you have any ideas for how to mark our anniversary then please let us know.
We love to welcome Fair Trade farmers, workers and artisans to Wales, and next year will be no exception! We’ll be visited in Fairtrade Fortnight and throughout our 10th anniversary year.
Fair Trade producers enjoy meeting people all across Wales, so if you’d like a Fair Trade visitor to come to your area, keep watching this page to find out how to join in.
Please be aware that all producer visits to the UK depend on successful visa applications.
