If you are planning activities for Fairtrade Fortnight this year (Monday 27 February – Sunday 12 March) you might like to take a look at the Co-operative College’s teaching pack ‘Co-operate for Change – Fairtrade in Your School’. A couple of sample activities are attached. For secondary schools: click here; and for primary schools: click here.
Two editions are available for KS2 and KS3/4. Both are packed with classroom activities and suggestions for promoting Fairtrade within your school and the wider community. If you’d like a digital copy of either of the packs please email: email@example.com.
The theme of Fairtrade Fortnight this year is ‘It’s time to put Fairtrade in your break!’ and an action kit and lots of activity ideas are available from the Fairtrade Foundation’s website.
Retail co-operative societies around the country will be getting involved too – so look out for details of events and promotions in your local co-op stores. The Co-operative Group, one of the first and leading retail promoters of Fairtrade in the UK, have lots of information about the stories behind their Fairtrade products on their website.
