    Goals / Remit

    WFTO-Europe has a vision of a world in which trade structures and practices have been transformed to work in favour of the marginalised producers and artisans and to promote sustainable development and justice. WFTO-Europe aims at building a fairer world for everyone, where fair trade and trade justice are the keystones to challenge the problems of the current economic model.

    WFTO-Europe has a double mission:
    a) To advocate for more equity in trade and economic relationships at European level.
    b) To promote Fair Trade in Europe, through the implementation of a credible and sustainable Fair Trade system.

    The aims of the Association are:
    -to be the representative organisation of Fair Trade organisations on a European level.
    -to promote the concept of Fair Trade in Europe, as defined by WFTO Global.
    -to foster collaboration and exchanges between member organisations.
    -to provide support services to its member organisations and to the Fair Trade movement
    in general.

    Other financial info

    The money paid to the Fair Trade Advocacy Office consist of membership fees only, no direct payment for services is ever made for their work in representing us and the broader Fair Trade movement towards the EU institutions and policy-makers.

    We are beneficiaries to an Erasmus+ and have received a grant from this in 2022 and are expecting to receive the next tranche in the current financial year (2023). We have applied for other, similar EU grants and are waiting to hear whether they will be granted to us or not in the current financial year.
