Description

As part of Fairtrade Fortnight events we invite you to a free and short Fairtrade film at The Rocket back rooom.

About the film:

Full film length: 20m 30s

Film provides an in-depth look at trade and globalisation.

It features Yohanna, a 19 year old student from London, as she visits sugar farmers in Swaziland to find out about their lives and livelihoods producing sugar for export, and how Fairtrade has changed them.

Through Yohanna’s experiences, students can reflect on a couple of central questions – how is it that the people who grow the things we eat and use can be stuck in poverty, and is trade effective at helping poor countries to alleviate poverty? Issues such as globalisation, Fairtrade, the background to our global trade system, and power in global supply chains, are all touched upon, as Yohanna talks with the people involved in growing and exporting the things we buy here in the UK.

Open to London Metropolitan University staff and students only.
