Our everyday institutions have the power to spread the word about Fair Trade.
The Association runs a programme to support Fair Trade activity in Communities.
Do you want to amplify the many individual actions with Community voices? Do you want to help promote Fair Trade and have that effort recognised? Check out how your Faith Group, Town or Council, Workplace, University or School can become an endorsed Fair Trade Community.
Our endorsement of Fair Trade Communities allows towns, business, schools, universities and faith groups to have their support for the Fair Trade Movement recognised.
Why become a Fair Trade Community?
As an endorsed Community you:
make Fair Trade visible in your community,
promote and grow Fair Trade in your community,
