WORLD FAIR TRADE DAY 2021 

This year The World Fair Trade Organization's campaign was called, 'BUILD BACK FAIRER.'

World Fair Trade Day 2021 was an opportunity to give visibility to the Build Back Fairer statement which has been endorsed by various international civil society networks.

This was a chance for WFTO members to get recognised and join international forces to #BuildBackFairer.

I recorded two videos, one in English and one in Urdu. 

Both videos are posted below. 

Here is how anyone could join the photo action:
