QUB Greens, from left to right, Bob, Ronan and Lois promoting Fairtrade in the QUB SU during Fairtrade Fortnight!

Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. By requiring companies to pay sustainable prices (which must never fall lower than the market price), Fairtrade addresses the injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally discriminates against the poorest, weakest producers. It enables them to improve their position and have more control over their lives.

This year the QUB Greens decided to highlight the Green aspects of Fairtrade! Click on the image to see our poster explaining the green aspects of Fairtrade! - for more information on the Fairtrade Vision!
