Join the Youth for Fairtrade group to shape the way Fairtrade drives change across the movement.

Help us build our future….

Fairtrade’s vision is a world in which all producers can enjoy secure and sustainable livelihoods, fulfil their potential and decide on their future. We believe that by connecting disadvantaged producers and consumers, we can all work to promote fairer trading
conditions and empower producers to combat poverty.

As a movement of producers, activists, businesses and decision-makers, we have made great strides, over the past twenty-six years, since the FAIRTRADE Mark was first placed on a product. And we are determined to continue to strive for a world in which producers thrive. Join us to shape the way Fairtrade drives change across the movement. 

 What are we looking for?

16-30 year olds to help us get creative about how we work as a campaigning movement.

What is the commitment?

This is one of the things we want you to help us define! How much is the right amount of work? The group will meet virtually, and the commitment will change according to what we are working on. At first, we will run some longer workshops around our big pieces of work. This may be up to half a day per month to begin with. We value commitment and would expect you to try to make every meeting.

What do you need to know?

You don’t need to be a Fairtrade aficionado, but you do need to be someone who is passionate about seeing a world where people know and care where their food came from, and who is prepared to take action for the world you want to see.

Sounds great! What do I need to do?
