The Weltladen Sterzing is one of the youngest Fair trade shops in South- Tyrol. The association "One - World Shop - Sterzing" was founded in late 1999. The store itself could be opened early 2000.
The shop emerged from the One World Group Sterzing. This association had already been operating for years, annually organized the soup Sunday, took part in the traditional Christmas market, led various conferences about fair trade in Sterzing and supported small projects in the South of the world.
The support of a volunteer at the Weltladen of Bressanone enabled the group to take part with the products of the Weltladen at the monthly markets in Sterzing. The Participation in the markets was a great success, and the association attracted new collaborators, new ideas and new courage.
