Learn more about our current campaigns and join us in demanding a fair deal for farmers and workers.
Fairtrade Australia works hard to spread the word that trade often isn’t fair. We campaign to raise awareness of the needs of producers in developing countries, share the good reasons to buy Fairtrade products and to persuade policymakers to change the fundamentally unfair trade system.
Here you can find out about some of the big issues we are campaigning on and how you can get involved.
World Fairtrade Challenge: 13th May 2017
The World Fairtrade Challenge will offer individuals and their communities the chance to become part of the biggest coffee break on earth, while joining forces with other coffee lovers to discuss the impacts of climate change on coffee farmers and workers.
With every cup of Fairtrade coffee drunk, we are helping to make a difference to farmers and workers, their families and communities. With your involvement that number can grow.
Stay tuned for exciting campaign updates and information on how to get involved.
Fairtrade Fortnight: 4th - 17th August 2017
In 2017, Fairtrade Fortnight will be back and better than ever! Celebrating all things fair trade, this campaign will kick off on the 4th of August and will run through until the 17th August. Why have we moved the dates? A move to August will assist Fairtrade Fortnight activities to come into sharper focus and receive greater coverage and engagement with local communities. It also gives activity organisers and volunteers more time for planning and implementation, which is a bonus!
Information on how you can get involved in Fairtrade Fortnight as well as exciting campaign details are not far away so stay tuned!
