Fairtrade Fortnight 2022 will take place from February 21 to March 6. Keep an eye on this page for updates to find out how your business can get involved. 

During Fairtrade Fortnight 2022, we will highlight the continued challenges that climate change brings to farmers, workers and their communities around the world. Many of the farmers and workers that grow the world’s food do not earn enough to live decent lives, invest in their community or build resilience against health and climate shocks.

Fairtrade fortnight and climate action

The failure to deliver enough progress at COP26 means we can’t wait any longer for governments to get serious about climate action. Fairtrade Fortnight 2022 is a major moment for commercial partners, consumers, producers, campaigners and civil society to come together and further amplify the voices of Fairtrade producers on the frontline of the climate crisis.

Together we can highlight the important role of businesses and consumers in supporting farmers and workers around the world to build greater climate resilience through Fairtrade.

When is Fairtrade Fortnight?

Fairtrade Fortnight will run from Monday 21 February to Sunday 6 March 2022.
