Edinburgh is a Fairtrade City (2014 marked 10 years of Fairtrade City status).  Each year the city celebrates Fairtrade Fortnight and the Lord Provost presents the Lord Provost Fair Trade Awards.  The Awards acknowledge those who have gone the extra mile to support and promote Fair Trade in Edinburgh. 

There are 5 award categories

  • Fair Trade Achievement

  • Fair Trade Newcomer
  • ‘Small is Beautiful’


Winners in 2014

This is your chance to win tickets to Edinburgh Zoo/Highland Wildlife Park for a family of four (two adults & two children).  To be in with a chance of winning you need to nominate an individual, organisation or business that has raised the profile of Fair Trade in the city. 

What happens next

Once the consultation closes, the Lord Provost’s Fair Trade Awards Panel will meet to review entries and choose a winner in each category.  The Fair Trade School Award winner will be announced at the School event on the 3rd March 2015.
