12th International Fair Trade Towns Conference. Sustainable consumption, caring for life.

Madrid, Spain

The International Fair Trade Towns conferences are the annual events gathering the enthusiasts of Fair Trade, activists, volunteers- grass root campaigners, local authorities representatives who take part in the Fair Trade Towns campaign in their communities. Since declaration of Garstang UK, the first FTT in 2001, the campaign has spread all around the world. On the beginning of May 2018, there are 2053 Fair Trade Towns in 34 countries on six continents.

Fair Trade network is a powerful social transformation tool which helps to fight the difficulties faced by small scale producers, providing an ethical and solidary way to the market. From Social Movements, we understand that to raise social awareness about these issues and to get the citizens, business managers and public entities commitment, we must not only sell products, but also promote and keep on going campaigns as Fair Trade Towns.

More than 2000 cities from all continents will take part of this campaign. We have a date in Madrid on the 19th, 20th and 21st of October 2018 to promote Fair Trade on a local and international scale. Now it’s your turn to get involved!
