DERC Seminar: Fairtrade, global learning and business as (un)usual.

Members may be interested to attend the next in this series of online seminars run by ANGEL partner organisation the Development Education Research Centre, which examines how the UK charity the Fairtrade Foundation have readjusted their successful work on global issues in schools in the last year, as well their Fairtrade Schools Award programme.

About this Event

This seminar session will look at the relevance of Fairtrade and global learning in a current global context that compels schools to explore global issues such as global health and climate change more urgently than ever.

Claire Arnott and Joanna Milis from the Fairtrade Foundation will share insights into how they have adapted their educational offer throughout 2020/2021 to engage young people with global issues. We will also be joined by a teacher who has been directly involved in the Fairtrade Schools programme throughout periods of school closures, who will shed light on how these new approaches have played out in practice.

Dr Adam Unwin (UCL Institute of Education) will then provide an academic response and commentary, drawing on his expertise in global development education.

The session will be Chaired by Professor Douglas Bourn, founding Director of the Development Education Research Centre (DERC) and Professor of Development Education at the UCL Institute of Education.
