In Fairtrade Fortnight 2021, the Fairtrade Foundation will highlight the growing challenges that climate change brings to farmers and workers in the communities Fairtrade works with. The facts are straightforward. Farmers and workers in the global south, who have done the least to contribute to climate change, are disproportionately affected. They have told us that:

  • Climate change is one of their biggest challenges right now. 
  • Low prices for their crops mean that they are struggling to fight back. 
  • With more money through Fairtrade they feel more equipped to meet their everyday needs and deal with the challenges posed by climate change.  
The Foundation will be hosting a virtual online festival bringing together schools, universities, businesses, supporters, campaigners and farmers from across the world to choose the world they want.
