Your school community is invited to take part in Fairtrade Schools Week, a campaign led by students, for students.

Fairtrade Schools Week is an opportunity for school communities to learn about ethical consumerism and take action to ensure that the people producing your tea, coffee, chocolate, sugar, sports equipment and school uniforms are not working in conditions of modern slavery.

Fairtrade Schools Week will run from 18-22 July, with schools and students invited to choose their own initiative either as individuals or as a whole school community.

Highlights from Fairtrade Schools Week 2015:

  • Students raised over $1000 for victims of human trafficking and slavery in Australia
  • Several workshops were hosted by The Freedom Partnership to educate, engage and inspire students to take the lead in creating fair and ethical communities

  • Hundreds of students learned about how they can end slavery by making small changes in their everyday lives
