World Fair Trade Day takes place on 09th May 2020. Organised by the World Fair Trade Organisation, the aim of the day is to celebrate Fair Trade and encourage the public to, where possible, choose Fair Trade goods, becoming fair and ethical consumers.
Fair Trade is a trading partnership that observes the human rights of all involved, paying fairly for goods and services that have been sustainably sourced and also engaging in supporting the fight against economic crisis, poverty, gender inequality and climate change.
On World Fair Trade day a number of events are taking part to celebrate the occasion. These include a photography contest, meetings and conferences.
