Choose the world you want festival during Fairtrade fortnight 2022
- 21st February 2022 - 6th March 2022
- 12:00 AM - 11:59 PM
Fairtrade’s ‘Choose the World You Want’ Festival features a series of virtual events designed to engage, inform and educate people around the urgent message of Fairtrade and climate change, the future of our food and those who produce it. The online initiative will bring the movement together and feature panel discussions, performances, workshops and collaborations between the Fairtrade Foundation and retailers, chefs and high-profile names in the world of food and sustainability.
Fairtrade is committed to fighting the climate crisis. Fairtrade Standards encourage producers to protect the environment by improving soil, planting trees, conserving water and avoiding pesticides, while Fairtrade’s programmes include climate academies for farmers to share best practice. At the same time, Fairtrade makes training available to producers so that they can use the latest agricultural methods, such as intercropping and shade-grown coffee to adapt to conditions.
You are invited to take part in Fairtrade Fortnight free activities and to act for climate justice. To find out more about how to take part in 2022, visit www.fairtrade.org.uk/fortnight
