Leek social enterprise Lifeworlds Learning visited S. Anselm’s School, in Bakewell, to talk to years six and seven about the issues and complexities of fair trade.

Using a giant walk on world map, the workshop explored global connections, trade, social justice and fairness through an exploration of fair trade.

The children discovered the range of Fairtrade products, learnt about some of their producers, explored the connections they have with distant communities and considered the differences that fair trade can make.

Pupils were asked to analyse facts and question the spread of resources.
