PLEASE NOTE THAT FAIR FESTIVAL 2020 HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19 (novel corona virus)

Come join Fair Festival on March 19th – 21st 2021.

Attend three terrific, eventful and enlightening days at Fair Festival! Where sustainability is the focal points.

  • At Fair Festival we provide you with an overview over which opportunities there is for a green and sustainable consumption, so that you as a consumer can make qualified choices.
  • At Fair Festival you will be able to meet business from all sectors, which all work dedicatedly with sustainability. They are looking forward to telling their stories of how and why they are passionate about the green transition and how they work with the Sustainable Development Goals.
  • At Fair Festival you will be able to purchase everything from clothes to home accessories and absolutely delicious food products with a clean conscience. You will also be able to meet pension funds and banks, that invest sustainably.

We have invited some of the nations smartest “green minds”, both the funny and the sober, to come and entertain and educate about climate and the green transition – it will with guarantees not be boring!

Politicians and opinion leaders will be challenged on their knowledge on climate, when we let them bud heads in quizzes – we will of course make sure that moderators ensure good manners and a smile, when the quiz gets going.

Some of Denmark’s best specialists on certifications and production restructuring will attend to inform and give inspiration on how to change your consumer habits for the greener. You will most certainly leave the wiser.

In cooperation with Conscious Fashion Week, we present a blast of a fashion show, with both established and upcoming brands. Environment friendly fashion is no longer just a “Off-White T-shirt with a slogan on the chest” – “Climate Fashion” is everything from classic to street. Here there will also be possible to do clothes-swap with other guests.

If you get tired and need a rest, you will be able to sit down at one of our meeting points and enjoy live music delivered by Spot Festival. And it will not be far from a booth where you can quench your hunger or thirst with climate friendly food and drinks.

Fair Festival is carried by hope and optimism and we believe that together we can make a difference. We are looking forward to seeing you.

CEO and founder of Globe Go Green and Fair Festival.

SOS Children’s Villages

All children deserve and needs a caring family and a safe childhood to thrive and develop, but around the world 200 million children are right now growing up without a loving family or in an exposed situation where they are in danger of loosing the care of their father and mother. That amounts to 1 in 1o children in need of help. SOS Children’s Villages help some of the worlds most exposed children and provides them with a safe and loving upbringing in a SOS-family.

SOS Children’s Villages core work for children is specifically targeted towards five of the UN Sustainable Development Goals which are; 1. End poverty, 4. Quality education, 8. Decent work for all and economic growth, 10. Reduce inequality and 16. Peace and justice. At SOS Children’s Villages we fight for those goals, that have a positive influence on exposed children and youth.

Home-Start – supported by ZONTA

HOME-START is an organisation, where volunteers offer support, friendship and practical help to families with children beneath school age. The organisation is independent from religious, political and economic interests. The goal is to prevent crises and collapse in families with small children. New family and societal patterns creates a need in families for support and new contacts. Families is broken up, generations live far apart and residential areas wither socially. A family friend can provide room and build bridges to new networks. Many functioning families still need help from time to time to make daily life cohesive and to prevent and solve problems in time. The opportunity to get that help is found in the shape of a voluntary family friend. HOME-START is for all families with at least one child under the age of 7. The help is free and confidential.

The Soroptimists in Aarhus

The woman sitting in the front of the picture above got a slightly easier life when a new well was inaugurated in Nagrin, which is near the capital of Burkina Faso. The well was a gift from the Soroptimists in Aarhus, and for the woman and her neighbors, the new well meant both pure drinking water and that they no longer had to go so far for water. The Soroptimists in Aarhus have been helping women and children both locally and abroad for 82 years. There are 55 soroptimist clubs in Denmark, and around 75,000 women join the network worldwide. One current project that the soroptimists are supporting right now is teenage mothers in Romania.

Certifications and criteria

We define sustainability as the Gro Harlem Brundtland report did in 1986:

SUSTAINABILE DEVELOPMENT IS A DEVELOPMENT THAT

MEETS THE NEEDS OF THE PRESENT WITHOUT

COMPROMISING THE ABILITY OF FUTURE GENERATIONS

TO MEET THEIR OWN NEEDS.

Our exhibitors must have a clear goal of producing and providing services as sustainably as possible. It is important that this is part of the business’ DNA and that they continuously work towards developing and optimising, so that they become as sustainable as possible as quickly possible.

We appreciate certifications and on this site we will regularly inform and educate about the certifications that exist and how they help to create a better environment, work conditions and climate.

Certifications are not an absolute must to become an exhibitor. Certifications are expensive and for small businesses it can be impossible to find financial leeway to acquire them. However, if the business can account for their supply chain and how the business work with sustainability, they can qualify as exhibitor.

We appreciate the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals and would like for the businesses to show how they work with the goals. And thereby, how they help further the goals.

In general exhibitors must show responsibility in regards to what they produce or provide, so that people, animals and soil is not exploited.

Below you can read more about how the different certifications secure, that businesses produce as sustainably as possible, so as to harm climate, environment and the people that consume the products as little as possible. We are not our selves certified, but one of our goals is so clear the fog that surround these logos. What do they mean? And how do you use them? Therefore, we encourage you to visit the websites of each of the organisations below, so that you can get informed on what is best for you and the globe we inhabit.
