For the first time, the European Commission will grant an EU city with a Fair and Ethical Trade Award.
The aim of the Award is to highlight the important role of cities in providing platforms for fair and ethical trade schemes. The contest was officially launched in Brussels on 7 December 2017 and applications will be accepted until 13 April 2018.
What is the EU Cities for Fair & Ethical Trade Award?
The Award is part of the EU’s efforts to raise awareness about how purchasing decisions of EU consumers can affect the environment and livelihoods of people in other countries – and the role that cities and local authorities must play.
Help your city apply!
Civil society organisations, NGOs and other stakeholders are welcome to complete city applications with the approval, in the form of a Mayoral Declaration, of the relevant municipality authority.
Applications are open to all EU cities that contain at least 20.000 inhabitants.
