When the Fairtrade movement is introduced to the youth, they get an opportunity to understand how trade works and how they can work together to make it fairer. It builds an understanding of sustainable businesses and how that in turn can build a more equitable world. Young people can take the awareness of Fairtrade to their communities and look at small simple steps that allow them to take actions towards sustainable development goals.
We see a Fairtrade Campus as a centre of creating a sustainable society, fueled by student changemakers like you. Professors, students and their peers are at the forefront of creating a Fairtrade Campus, which aims to integrate sustainability principles. As part of the programme, you can become a Fairtrade campus by promoting the Fairtrade movement's principles and creating awareness among students and the entire campus community about issues of gender justice, social equality and environmental conservation.
Fairtrade raises awareness about sustainable consumption to promote sustainable living and encourages decision-makers in the food and fashion industry to commit to fairer terms of trade. Fairtrade works with businesses and connects them to farming communities. Fairtrade standards ensure these businesses redefine conventional trade and commit to making the process more responsible, ethical and sustainable.
All college students who wish to make a difference and grow the Fairtrade movement on their campus are invited to participate. Become a Fairtrade Campus by bringing the Fairtrade movement to your campus.
Apart from being the centres of knowledge and learning - universities, colleges and educational institutions have a rich heritage of being instigators of change and social innovation, for both communities and the marketplace.
The Fairtrade Campus programme purpose is to align these values of Indian Universities, colleges and higher educational institutions with those of Fairtrade to bring about a cohesive change and sustainability in our society.
Learn and get a practical connection with how sustainability is being worked upon by the food, fashion, cosmetics and other FMCG industries.
To create a Fairtrade Campus all it needs is a group of similarly-motivated students who are passionate about social change. It entails educating students on Fairtrade practices in order to create a more equal and fair future. It raises awareness about the significance of being a responsible consumer, and it is later recognised for its continued commitment.
Fairtrade Universities organise several awareness and engagement activities for their Fashion & Design Colleges and Institutions, Business Schools and Institutions, Humanities Colleges and Institutions and Hotel Management Colleges and Institutions.
