We need you(th)
to make trade fair
It’s that time of the year again where we ask our campus community to rally in support of farmers and workers in the Global South. Let’s demand a future where ALL actors in the trade system benefit from a fair, sustainable and decent living.
This is Fair Trade Campus Week ’21!
No one has been left unaffected by the ongoing health crisis, and while the world is slowly getting back on its feet, we know how important it is to stay connected in solidarity for the issues we’ve always cared about.
