Mapping the support for Fair Trade in Europe
European Parliament elections are approaching (May 22-25) and the Fair Trade movement activists involved in the Vote4FT campaign are working hard to get the support of candidates. The Fair Trade Advocacy Office has published an interactive map displaying the support of candidates per country in the European Union. It is expected that many more will sign the Fair Trade manifesto as the candidates are campaigning recently.
Three top candidates running for the position of President of the European Commission have already signed the Fair Trade manifesto: Ska Keller for the European Green Party, Martin Schulz for the Party of European Socialists and Jean-Claude Juncker for the European People’s Party.
