The Fair Times campaign is a pan-European campaign coordinated by five civil society network organisations FTAO (Fair Trade Movement), IFOAM-EU (Organic Agriculture), CIDSE (Catholic development agencies), ECOLISE (community led initiatives on climate change and sustainability), and RIPESS-EU (Social Solidarity Economy) calling for a fair and sustainable European consumption and production agenda. The campaign is centred on a special edition of ‘The Fair Times’ newspaper from 2024, the end of the next European Parliament term. The newspaper aims to provide examples of policies that the EU could implement regarding a sustainable consumption and production agenda and hopes to inspire candidates to commit to taking action if elected. The campaign launched in  mid-April and will run until the elections at the end of May.

You will be able to read ‘The Fair Times’ and find out more about the campaign on www.thefairtimes.eu.
