We are celebrating Fairtrade Fortnight

What is Fairtrade Fortnight?

For two weeks each year, thousands of individuals, groups and companies across the UK come together to celebrate the people who grow food. These are people who live in some of the poorest countries in the world who are often exploited and badly paid.
We became a Fairtrade Borough in 2011, and our Kirklees Fairtrade Network has been committed to raising awareness of Fairtrade.

How will we celebrate?

This year to celebrate Fairtrade Fortnight, the University of Huddersfield will be holding a Kirklees Fairtrade Celebration Event. The event is a celebration of all of the fantastic work, events and activities the people of Kirklees do to support the Fairtrade Foundation.
You can enjoy free Fairtrade refreshments with your friends and learn about Fairtrade in Kirklees.

Some easy ways to make Fairtrade part of your life include:

• Looking out for the Fairtrade Mark on products you regularly buy
• Visit cafes and restaurants that sell Fairtrade products
• Keep up to date on Fairtrade news on the Fairtrade Kirklees website

When is it and how much does it cost?

Wednesday 06 March, Heritage Quay, University of Huddersfield. 6pm arrive, 6:30pm start. Book your place on Eventbrite – 2019 Kirklees Fairtrade Celebration
