Moral Fairground volunteer opportunity

Moral Fairground has been hosting fair trade and ethical festivals since 2009, we are passionate about creating opportunities for people and businesses alike to learn about sustainable and socially responsible ways of doing things. Most of our events are driven by volunteers with a passion and a vision for creating a world that is just for all. Our volunteers have a big impact and contribution in delivering events or creating new ones. Moral Fairground is the organiser of the Victorian Fair Trade Festival in May and the biggest annual fair trade and ethical Festival, Fair@Square, in December.
