About this Event

Fairtrade Fortnight is an annual campaign to celebrate everything Fairtrade. This year, we'd love to have you join us on Friday 14th of August for a screening of a beautiful short film - "Make the World a Better Place".

In 2015, the global community including our government agreed on 17 global goals for a more just and sustainable world. Five years later, what has this done for disadvantaged people in the global South? What challenges do they face? Is there hope for their future?

When the pay they receive for backbreaking work is barely enough, when generations of dedication to coffee cultivation are endangered by climate change, smallholder farmers and agricultural workers truly feel the weight of power imbalances in trade. Fairtrade shows that a sustainable future is possible under just trade conditions.

In Make the World a Better Place, you hear the voices of the people who directly experience just how close our world is to a point of no return. People who are taking action and changing things, so that all of us together can take charge and create a fairer world.

Come learn, meet like minded people and enjoy delicious chocolate thanks to Wellington Chocolate Factory.
