Babcock LDP – Fairtrade Fortnight

As part of Babcock LDP’s commitment to supporting diversity, we are pleased to support this Fair Trade Fortnight initiative run by the Devon Development Education (DDE) charity.

For two weeks each year at the end of February and start of March, thousands of schools across the UK come together to learn about the people who grow our food and drinks. This coming year, Fairtrade Fortnight starts on 22 February and ends 7 March 2021.

In 2021, they’ll be helping schools to teach and learn about the climate crisis and how it affects farmers in different parts of the world. During Fortnight, young people will be able to explore how higher incomes can help farmers to cope with these challenges. Farmers in the global south have contributed the least to the climate crisis but are already feeling the impacts the hardest.

"Weeks run from Monday to Sunday. Please note that weeks without communications to schools are ignored and the links will go to the last week where a communication was made in this category."
