From Monday 22 February to Sunday 7 March Wadham students can pick up a free Fairtrade Brownie when you collect your takeaway dinner.

Choose the World you Want this Fairtrade Fortnight is this year’s Fairtrade Foundation campaign, highlighting the growing challenges that climate change brings to farmers and workers in the communities Fairtrade works with.  

“The climate crisis is an immediate and ever-increasing threat and those in climate vulnerable countries are already seeing its impacts from droughts and crop disease to floods, heatwaves and shrinking harvests”, said a Fairtrade Foundation spokesperson. 

“With the emergence of the global COVID pandemic, the challenges that farmers face now are bigger than ever before with falling commodity prices and widespread shocks reverberating along our global supply chains. Ongoing poverty in farming communities makes it increasingly hard to cope with the effects of climate change.”
