#BuildBackFairer

For World Fair Trade Day 2021 in May we promoted WFTO’s #BuildBackFairer campaign.

The World Fair Trade Organisation are calling for commitment. They want governments to

  • Protect workers
  • Help to Restart economies using stimulii and finance
  • Redesign the trade environment from profit primacy to mission primacy
  • Create systems which support a Fair Share of Resources

You can watch a video summary of the goals here
