In your community

With over 10,000 local campaigning groups, including Towns, Schools, Universities and Faith Groups, there are lots of ways to get involved with Fairtrade in your community.

We run campaigns with local community groups aimed at boosting awareness and understanding of trade issues, and promoting the buying of Fairtrade products as a way for everyone, no matter who they are, to use the power of their purchase to make a difference to the lives of farmers and workers.

These campaigns have a set of goals and receive a certificate of congratulation from the Fairtrade Foundation when they are achieved. Once a local community declares its status as a Fairtrade Town (or school, university or faith group) it must be committed to continuing campaigning and awareness raising.
