    Fair Trade Fiesta 2022 Co-creating a Fair Trade World by Ethical Traders and Consumers

    As the whole city is regaining momentum with the further easing of social distancing measures in the wake of the abated epidemic, families start to look for entertainment and leisure activities over weekends. The Fair Trade Fiesta 2022 is certainly a good choice for them! Organised by Fair Trade Hong Kong (FTHK), the Fair Trade Fiesta is to be launched on May 14 and 15 at D ·Park, Tsuen Wan, which echoes the World Fair Trade Day - a global fair trade celebration event on the second Saturday of May every year. The Fiesta this year presents a diverse array of activities and programmes including a Fair Trade bazaar, sustainable living workshops, exhibition, symposium and award ceremonies namely the “Fair Trade Award” for corporate partners and the “Jockey Club Fair Trade School Award”. FTHK looks forward to bringing every family and visitor an enjoyable and meaningful weekend in the early summer.   Carrying the theme of “Co-creating a Fair World”, the Fair Trade Fiesta of this year aims at connecting ethical traders and consumers to bring home the message that Fair Trade is not only about fairness in trade practices but it is also closely related to our daily lives in promoting environmental friendliness, responsible and sustainable consumption, gender equality and safe working conditions. By supporting ethical traders and their products, we hope to arouse public awareness on justice and fairness in international trade on the one hand, and on the other, help create an economic model conducive to sustainable development.   During the two-day fiesta, visitors can enjoy shopping in the bazaar where a wide variety of specialty products are available, and join the fun-filled workshops designed for all ages. Visitors can also have a nice opportunity to acquire useful tips for pursuing Fair Trade principles in their daily lives through the on-site exhibition and symposium. While having fun in the fiesta, visitors can learn more about Fair Trade movement and sustainability, which in turn will bring a positive impact on our daily lives. FTHK hopes to work with everyone in our community to influence the world through consumption by “Selecting Fairness”, “Fancying Fairness” and “Co-creating Fairness”!
