Constructive Dialogue on Globalisation Issues
2001: Butchers' Hall, London
World trade and citizenship with a global dimension
Having seen the rapporteurs feedback forms and listened to some of the workshop discussion, James Morgan, economic consultant and journalist, synthesised the tenor of the many points debated during the day. He presented his own perspective on the issues and, with questions raised by the delegates, a further, lively exchange ensued.
Teachers and students from:
- Bacons College
- Hampstead School
- Haverstock School
- John Ruskin College
Other participants included those from the following companies and organisations:
- David Breeze Associates
- Ethical Dimensions
- The Independent
- Middlesex University
- Thomas H Oakley Ltd
- Transparency International
"Excellent for students and teachers etc alike - I would definitely bring more students if run again."
"One of the best things I've ever been to."
"Students not talked down to."
"...the involvement of adults, especially ones who have the experience they do, added to the interest of the day."
Work is underway to gain further partners for Worldaware to ensure that the opportunities to disseminate the content and approach of this conference to other schools and colleges can be realised.
This conference, the inaugural event to the World trade and citizenship with global dimension project, has been made possible by financial support from British Airways, BP, J Sainsbury and The Worshipful Company of World Traders.
