A Fairtrade School is committed to Fairtrade values and practices; it is at the heart of the global movement for promoting responsible consumption and production (United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 12). You can join the global movement and empower young people to be part of the change towards an ethical and more sustainable future.
With the Fairtrade India’s School Programme, young people have the opportunity to discover how their choices - as individuals and as a collective - can make a difference to the lives of people across the country and to the planet that we all share.
The schools programme aims to inculcate Fairtrade values in the lives of young students to develop conscious mindsets in the youth of the country as global citizens and also responsibly address problems of mass global consumerism, climate change, poverty, food waste, and modern slavery that we need to urgently address. Socio-economic, environmental and sustainable development can be furthered with our individual actions and institutional commitments and the programme recognises the power of youth led actions and the ripple effects that it has on in their communities. Such youth led actions can not only promote the good work done by local business but can eventually lead to building a fairer world. The school programme enables teachers to enhance the curriculum with age-appropriate learning, carefully curated lesson plans and extra-curricular school activities, while students will understand the inherent issues in our food and trade systems and Fairtrade's role in making the system fairer, greener, more transparent and accountable.
