Fairtrade Fortnight 2022: 21 February – 6 March
The climate crisis is an immediate and ever-increasing threat. Farmers and workers in low and middle income countries, who have done the least to contribute to climate change, are disproportionately affected.
The UK hosted COP26 in 2021, a global United Nations summit about climate change and how countries are planning to tackle it. A delegation of Fairtrade farmers attended and over 33,000 campaigners joined 1.8m Fairtrade farmers and workers in backing their Be Fair With Your Climate Promise challenge to world leaders. But the wealthiest nations pushed their old promise of a $100bn annual funding to the most climate vulnerable countries back to 2023.
We need to see these promises happen and that they reach the farmers and workers who need it most. So we will continue to focus on Climate Justice throughout 2022.
In Fairtrade Fortnight we will continue to contribute to the UK wide Fairtrade Fortnight online activities, and work with some of our communities across the nation to host their own activities. Due to the continued global pandemic, we will not have Fairtrade producers visiting the UK directly. Our planned activities will continue to be updated on this page.
