Join WFTO Asia on Saturday May 13 as we celebrate World Fair Trade Day 2017!
WFTDay was initiated by WFTO members in 2001. Held annually each May, it is now one of our biggest calendar events and a chance for members, consumers, advocates and policy makers to come together and show their commitment to the 10 Principles of Fair Trade. WFTDay is traditionally marked with events and online campaigns that extend throughout the month of May.
In 2016, people in more than 70 countries participated. This year, we’re hoping to make WFTDay celebrations bigger and better than ever!
Be an Agent for Change
2017 is the third and final year of WFTO’s ‘Be an Agent for Change’ campaign.
WFTO advocates for Fair Trade as a solution to trade injustices and power imbalances. We consider everyone in the Fair Trade supply chain and all consumers who support Fair Trade to be Agents for Change and part of the global solution. Show your support for Fair Trade by forming a human chain and sharing images of your demonstration online. The human chain is symbolic of the human impact of trade injustices, and each individual’s role in eradicating poverty through fairer supply chains.
