Regional Supporter Conferences

Regional conferences bring campaigners together to explore current Fairtrade campaigns and issues, share ideas, challenges and strengthen relationships with others in the area. 

Save the date!

It’s a quarter of a century since we launched the FAIRTRADE Mark in the UK. Powered by people and community action, it’s grown from an idea about justice and fairness among a few like-minded groups, into a household name. It has completely changed how we think about the people who produce the food, drink and clothing we enjoy every day. 

To recognise this landmark, this autumn we will be taking a moment to reflect on the successes and contributions of everyone who has helped to make Fairtrade a national conversation, rooted in local action. While we’re celebrating all that has been achieved so far, there is still much to do, so this will be a great opportunity for Fairtrade campaigners to come together and hear what other Fairtrade supporters have been up to as well as discuss new campaigning ideas as we look to the future and what we need to achieved in the next 25 years to make trade truly fair.

Stay tuned for announcements about inspirational speakers, informative workshops, topical debate and lots of networking with like-minded supporters.
