Fair Champions Project 2017 successfully completed!
29. September 2017
During the course of the summer we once again, visited 6 elementary
school classes to talk with the pupils about fair and unfair trade in
The main objective of the project was to bring the
concept "fairtrade" closer to home for students. Time and again, we
learned in the last years that little is known about it. To reach this
goal, we focused on initiating debate about the subject. Together with
the children and teachers, we reflected our own position in the world of
production and commerce and questioned our own behavior: Where do I
buy? What do I buy? Am I actually fair?
Even more so than in the
last few years, our roll-play game was a great success. For many of the
children, the dimension of the exploitation had not been clear before
and we often heard: "this is completely unfair!". Many students, for the
first time, fully understood the value of clothing and so we talked at
length about what one can do, where and what one can buy to avoid
supporting unfair working conditions.
We are very happy about
the consistently positive feedback from pupils and teachers. Many
parents were also impressed by this year's action day at the school
festival of the Moabiter Grundschule. A big thank you to all involved!
want to take this as an inspiration and not only continue the project
next year, but expand it. Therefore, we welcome parents, teachers and
students, who want to participate in the 2018 Fair Champions project, to
