 On 6th November 2014 the re-launch took place of

ABERDEEN FOR A FAIRER WORLD

Formerly known as the Third World Centre - a key player in Development Education and the Fairtrade movement in NE Scotland. 

 

For more than 30 years we have been at the heart of raising awareness and promoting understanding of global concerns and supporting active global citizenship throughout the community. 

The AGM of Aberdeen for a Fairer World was followed by the first John Forster Memorial Lecture in memory of our Chair, who died in July 2014.

Martin Rhodes, Director, Scottish Fair Trade Forum, spoke on the theme 'Fair Trade - Future Directions'.

 

In an engaging and thought-provoking talk, Martin addressed the issues currently facing the fair trade movement, 20 years after the Fairtrade mark was launched.

 

 

During that time there has been an enormous growth in sales of fairly traded goods, but there is much still to be done as there remain huge imbalances of power in world trade. 

 

Martin spoke about the complexity of fair trade issues in the global economy and the many interesting possible initiatives and developments which might be explored to promote fair trade and challenge unfair trade. 

 

Above all, it is essential to ensure that all trading arrangements are mutually beneficial to producers, suppliers and consumers.
