Advancing sustainable consumption and production in Europe

FAIRTRADE announces two new initiatives supported by the EU.

Fairtrade International, together with 21 implementing partners – including eight National Fairtrade Organizations (Czech Republic & Slovakia, Denmark, France, Finland, Germany, Italy, Poland, UK), the Fair Trade Advocacy Office, World Fair Trade Organization and eight of its members, and Fashion Revolution – secured 5.8 million Euro funding from the European Union to implement a three-year project entitled “Trade Fair - Live Fair”.
