Mini Lesson: A Fair Trade Nation

Did you know that Scotland achieved Fair Trade Nation status in February 2013?

We’ve had this status for 10 years but people around the world have been campaigning for Fair Trade for a lot longer. Fair Trade is about responsible production and consumption – respecting people and the planet.


The Scottish Fair Trade Forum works to support Scotland to remain a vibrant Fair Trade Nation, embedding the principles of Fair Trade in all aspects of Scottish society to contribute to a just, equitable and sustainable world.

We are grateful to the Scottish Fair Trade Forum for delivering this lesson.
