Fairtrade Fortnight occurs during the same two weeks of the year, intertwining February and March. It helps to raise awareness of the Fairtrade Foundation and what it supports, highlighting the issues we still face in the world. Far too many coffee farmers, gold miners and fruit pickers and more are exploited and underpaid for the world they put in.
Fairtrade Fortnight 2021 is a little different to previous years, though. The last 12 months have seen the world drawn together in new ways due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. So, this year, that connection within our world is going to be explored further. The topic for 2021 is climate change and how we all have the power to make a difference.
