The festival will cover a variety of issues including discussing how the climate crisis poses an immediate threat to the farmers and workers behind everyday products like bananas, coffee and chocolate.

Affected farmers and workers will share their individual stories, explaining that if their livelihoods are to survive the climate crisis, it is essential they earn more with information on how we can help make that happen.
