Fairtrade Fortnight 2022

Oxford has been a proud Fairtrade University since June 2018, along with several of its constituent colleges. Fairtrade is about social, economic and environmental justice.

Fairtrade Fortnight highlights the growing challenges climate change brings to farmers and workers in the communities that produce our day-to-day products. By being paid a fair rate, farmers, producers, and communities are more equipped to meet their everyday needs and deal with the challenges posed by climate change.

How to support the Oxford University Fairtrade scheme

  • Buy Fairtrade products at University outlets, high street shops and in college dining rooms, and encourage your friends to do the same. Our Oxford Fairtrade Map shows some of the many places around the city you can find Fairtrade products.

  • Organise an event with your colleagues. You can find lots of ideas in our engagement packs for staff, students and colleges.

  • Ask your administrative team to purchase Fairtrade products for your kitchen, meetings and events. See a list of products and more information in our engagement guide (coming soon!)

  • Lobby your college to join the Fairtrade scheme. You can use our Fairtrade Motion Template as a starting point.

  • If you are a student, join the Oxford Carbon Challenge and pledge to buy Fairtrade.  

  • Take the Fairtrade quiz or test yourself to see how much you know about chocolate or how much you know about bananas. Contact us if you would like our support in setting up your own quiz event.

  • Spread the word with the help of our free Fairtrade Fortnight communications pack.

  • Share your Fairtrade actions and commitment on social media and tag us: #FairtradeAtOxUni @OxfordEnvSust
