Going Beyond the Symbols: Ethical Consumerism and Fair Trade for Community Groups is designed to provide an introduction to Ethical Consumerism and Fair Trade (EC/FT) for groups working in the informal education sector. As Development Education providers, we share much in common with the principles of good community work such as participation, citizenship, empowerment and solidarity.
This resource is divided into three action plans designed to take your group through the full cycle of exploring a topic. The topics we have chosen are Fair Trade, Climate Change and Waste. Each Action Plan provides background information, links to videos available free of charge on-line, activities, discussion suggestions and actions that community groups can take to support their learning.
