World Fair Trade Day 2017

World Fair Trade Day
13 May 2017  - Human Chains for Fair Trade and the Planet

Agents for Change across five continents will join hand in hand for Fair Trade and the Planet to celebrate World fair Trade Day on 13 May 2017. Fair traders in the supply chain, joined by consumers, policy makers and advocates, will form human chains in their celebrations to mark their commitment to Fair Trade and the Planet, our route to sustainable development.   

The 2017 celebration is the third in the series of ‘Be An Agent for Change’ campaign. We believe that Fair Trade is an Agent for Change, a solution to trade injustices and imbalances of power in the supply chain. People in the Fair Trade supply chain and the consumers supporting Fair Trade products are Agents for Change. It is our inherent power to make change. We believe that anyone can be an Agent for Change.

Together, hand in hand, we can work for a fairer world.
