  • Strengthening existing and building new community links
  • Enhancing basic skills including literacy, numeracy, linguistic and digital competence
  • Supporting young people to develop motivation and task commitment

  • Young people’s familiarity with Fair Trade
  • Products and practice in the local area
  • The promotion of Fair Trade products
  • How different European communities interpret Fair Trade
  • How relationships vary between producers and consumers in Fair Trade and non Fair Trade commerce
  • The impact of Fair Trade in producer countries
