Get involved with Fairtrade Fortnight

Fairtrade Fortnight runs for two weeks at the end of February and beginning of March each year. There are lots of ways to get involved!

Learn more about Fairtrade at the University

Did you know we have been a Fairtrade University since 2004? Or that all bananas at the University are Fairtrade from Panama?

Find out what the University is doing

Attend an event

Each year, we share events happening around Edinburgh as well as hosting our own.

Buy Fairtrade

Fairtrade Fortnight is a great time to get into the habit of thinking about where the things you buy come from. Buying items that have the Fairtrade logo ensures a fairer price for workers.

Run your own activity or event

Join us in exploring what it means to be fair trade and highlight ways we can have a positive impact. 

Whether you’re interested in fair trade food, clothing, policy or debate, be part of Fairtrade Fortnight and organise your own event!

Stuck for an idea? How about organising a bake sale and showcase the best of Fairtrade baking products, organise a community Fairtrade breakfast, or why not organise a lecture or debate on an area of fair trade that’s important to you?

Get in touch, and we will include the details in our Fairtrade Fortnight calendar, and promote to the wider University and networks.
