World Fair Trade Day 2016: Human Chain for Fair Trade and Planet

Posted on May 13, 2016 by Dave Woodard

We celebrate World Fair Trade Day with other fair traders around the world forming human chains.

Yes, human chains across five continents and over 70 countries. People behind the Fair Trade chain will take a break, go out and celebrate on 14 May 2016.

The human chain formation is our way of showing solidarity with people, groups and institutions that are making positive change and continue to make a difference in the lives of others, community and the planet. They are our Agents for Change, and we celebrate with them!
