To be awarded for the second time since 2018, the “EU Cities for Fair and Ethical Trade Award” honours European cities that contribute to more sustainable trade, consumption and production. With its focus on fair and ethical trade, the Award hopes to raise awareness among EU consumers for the implications of their purchasing decisions on the environment and on other people’s livelihoods, thus contributing to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly SDG 12 on responsible consumption and production.

By presenting a platform for knowledge-sharing and networking opportunities, it also supports cities in connecting with one another and promotes opportunities for peer-to-peer learning and collaboration between cities to increase impact. The award is open to cities from EU member states with a population of over 20,000 people. Past winners may re-apply after one Award Cycle.

Applications can be submitted until the 12th of June 2020.
