It`s coming up very soon. Fairtrade Fortnight 2013 will run from Monday 25th February to Sunday 10th March inclusive.
During the two weeks, suppporter activity and media attention will focus on Fairtrade issues around the UK, hopefully leading to long term benefit for farmers and producers in the developing world.
This year, you will again be asked to “Take a Step” for Fairtrade – starting in Fairtrade Fortnight itself.
You can find out more about it on The Fairtrade Foundation`s website, where you can order resources online to help promote any events or activities you are planning.
This earlier Blog post, entitled “What is the difference between Fair Trade and Fairtrade?” , will give you more information and will help you understand the issues involved.
So, have a great Fairtrade Fortnight. You can always let us know what events you are planning by leaving details in the Comments section below.
Thanks for reading and look out for more posts soon.
