Want to become a Fairtrade School, Fairtrade Town, Fairtrade College, or Fairtrade Ambassador?
By choosing to support Fairtrade, your community can add its voice to demands for a trade system that puts people, not profit, at the heart of the transaction. Our voices become louder when we speak together.
Ireland has 51 officially recognised Fairtrade towns and cities and 23 others seeking Fairtrade status – a total of 74 active volunteer groups around the country.
Working towards Fairtrade Town or School status, or holding an event during Fairtrade Fortnight, will bring together neighbours, groups, local authorities and businesses towards a common goal and a shared achievement. Becoming a Fairtrade Town is a lot of work, good fun and a great way to bring people together. It will also be an achievement everyone can celebrate and a powerful message about how your community wants trade to work.
