Week 7 - Fairtrade Fortnight

Fair trade is a movement that aims to help disadvantaged people in developing countries, so is is important that we learn about it.  It may inspire you to develop these positive values themselves and think about fairness.

Fair trade is a system designed to help producers of goods in developing countries achieve fair and sustainable trade relationships.  The movement focuses on commodities or products that are usually exported from those developing countries to developed countries. The products that are usually focused on are coffee, sugar, cocoa, fruit, flowers and gold! 

It seeks to promote greater fairness in international trade partnerships through dialogue, transparency and respect. Everyone deserves to earn a fair amount for their work, and fair trade is a great way of expressing this idea!
