WFTO-Europe produced its Hand-in-Hand For Fair Trade campaign which was realized with the help of our members and friends of Fair Trade. We thank all the participants and we wish to keep on building enthusiastic Fair Trade relationships!
At WFTO-Europe, we celebrated the WFT Day at the heart of Brussels with our local partner.
On 11 of May the Belgian Fair Trade Federation organized an event to raise the awareness of the local population but also of the usual tourists that visit Brussels.
The well famous symbol of the Belgian capital, the ‘Manneken Pis’, was dressed with Fair Trade clothes. It is in fact a tradition in Brussels to dress up the little statue in various clothing according to different festivities´. This was the costume number 901 and extraordinarily also the female correspondent of the most popular touristic attraction, ‘Jaenneke Pis’ was dressed up in the same way! The event attracted the attention of many people, not only for the new costume of the sightsee but also on Fair Trade. Many thanks to the commitment of the Belgian Fair Trade Federation which has found out an original way to spread the Fair trade massage and to celebrate it!
