Trade Aid Education Series: our publication on global justice issues
This series focuses on a single issue in each publication and presents up-to-date research from around the world with links to Trade Aid partners.
Aimed at Adults and Year 12 and 13 students, the idea of these publications is to provide an opportunity for the New Zealand public to begin thinking through some of the complexities of achieving development in our global community. They can be used as a tool for teachers to start their students discussing some of the complexities we raise, thinking through various solutions, and continuing on a longer term learning path. Our ultimate aim as a thinking organisation is to have highly engaged, critical thinking, active supporters who appreciate that a development organisation needs to be dynamic in its approach to development. We need to be open to new ways of working in order to continue providing support that best addresses the problems faced in global communities.
- Learning Issues looks at access to education, a concern for all developing communities around the world.
- How fair is fair? discusses the concept of fair trade internationally, certification issues and Trade Aid's approach to fair trade.
- Slavery Today examines the reality of modern day slavery and how fair trade organisations such as Trade Aid suport growing demands for a slave free- world.
- Women at Work explores the lives of women working in developing countries and the empowerment they have gained through fair trade employment
- Partners in Trade investigates how Trade Aid works together with our trading partners in a way which is not charity, nor a top down model of development but is instead a system of partnership where Trade Aid responds to the needs and initiatives already identified by its trading partners.
- Business Matters challenges the concepts of current day business practice and discusses other positive alternate ways of doing business.
- Greening Trade examines the challenges of protecting the environment through the use of sustainable materials and production methods while still meeting the demands of business profitability.
- Trade Rules confronts the systems and regulations which govern international trade and the injustice this creates for many of the world’s most disadvantaged craft and food producers.
Teachers - we also encourage you to order these as excellent teaching resources for your students. As always we welcome your thoughts and feedback.
