9th May is World Fair Trade Day 2009 – a global festival exploring the power of Fair Trade to bring millions of producers out of poverty – and engaging with the challenges faced by the Fair Trade movement across the world.
In Oxford we will be celebrating World Fair Trade Day 2009 with the Dhol Drummers from Cowley St Christopher School, beating out some Fair Trade rhythms in Templars Square, Cowley Centre, from 11-12 on Saturday 9th May. Listen out for a Fair Trade Bannana Calypso and the recital of a competition-winning poem about Fairtrade chocolate.
Together we’ll be able to really make some noise for Fair Trade and we hope you will join us!

Whilst the FAIRTRADE Mark applies to many commodity products, principles of Fair Trade are also applied by many more local craft producers across the globe, working under the World Fair Trade Organisation
