From Chocolate to Computers
This book looks behind some of the products we buy, use and often take for granted, uncovering the impact their production has on the workers involved and on their environment. It aims to:
- explore human rights, interdependence and sustainability in the context of world trade
- raise awareness of some of the complexities of fair trade.
The pack can be used for an interactive assembly, or as the basis for a workshop on Global Citizenship. It enables participants to explore the links we have with people across the globe, through what we consume. It:
- presents the conditions in which five different products are produced: cocoa in Ghana, bananas in Costa Rica, flowers in Kenya, trainers in Indonesia and computers in Taiwan
- engages the audience in analysing different aspects of production
- develops understanding of the range of working conditions which exist within both ‘fair’ and ‘free’ trade
- encourages participants to take action for change.
It is suitable for secondary age groups (11-18) as well as adults. It supports learning within Citizenship, Geography, English, Drama and RE; and can be used as the basis for cross-curricular work.
