Your future Solihull - Fairtrade Fortnight

Fairtrade Fortnight

Taking place in February every year, this national event helps to promote awareness about Fairtrade and shines a light on the communities overseas on the front line of the climate crisis. The ongoing climate crisis remains the biggest threat to the livelihoods of millions of small scale farmers and agricultural workers in low income countries worldwide. Each year, fun-filled activities take place in the borough, including the Solihull Fairtrade Trail, featuring fantastic sculptures and artworks from local schools.

Solihull Fairtrade Trail 2023

Back for another year, students across Solihull have  been busy creating handmade sculptures and artwork for this year’s theme of 'Choose Fairtrade now to save the future of our favourite foods'. To coincide with Fairtrade Fortnight, the artwork will be on display from 18 February to 5 March in well-known shops in Solihull Town Centre.

The Solihull Fairtrade Trail features a quiz where you’ll need to visit all of the school’s artwork to reveal the answers! You’ll be able to learn more about Fairtrade Fortnight whilst having a friendly competition with family and friends. Who can complete the questions in the quickest time? The poster and question sheet / trail map can be downloaded below. Question sheets will also be available at the Children's Library at the CORE during the event. Good luck!
