Learn about fair trade this month

Learn about fair trade this month Image

The annual Victorian Fair Trade Festival is coming to Docklands’ library this month.

Running from May 10 to May 28, during “Fair Trade Fortnight”, the festival will celebrate all things fair as well as promoting sustainable environment and social responsibility.

Organised by Melbourne-based organisation, Moral Fairground, the festival will see a range of activities on offer at Library at the Dock.

The launch event on Saturday, May 14 will include fair trade certified chocolate tasting, a “sustainable comfort” workshop and an “up-cycle, recycle” workshop.

Throughout the two-week festival you can visit the Living Fair Trade Exhibition, and primary and secondary schools have the chance to participate in fair trade conferences.

Moral Fairground director Susana Bevilacqua encouraged all Victorians to embrace the activities hosted during Fair Trade Fortnight.

“The festival provides the opportunity to celebrate and learn about fair and conscious trading in an interactive way,” Ms Bevilacqua said.

She said the festival was a yearly reminder that every purchase mattered.

“Fair Trade Fortnight is an inclusive worldwide celebration of events that promote fair trade and tangible and effective contribution to overcoming poverty and advocating for trade justice,” Ms Bevilacqua said.
