Constructive Dialogue on Globalisation Issues

8 July 2002: Butchers' Hall, London

Worldaware appreciates project support from The Worshipful Company of World Traders, British Airways, BP, J Sainsbury and Department for International Development.


This event was specifically prepared to allow Year 12 students to explore a range of international development issues and to deepen their understanding of how the various economic sectors combine to contribute to improving the long-term prosperity of developing countries.

The key themes were pursued in workshops with a number of themes:

It provided a very special opportunity for students to engage with people working in companies and agencies that operate in developing countries. It demonstrated the complex interdependence between and within countries and the sectors. It ranged from the individual to global perspectives and from the 'majority world' to the 'minority world'.



Sir Roger Cork opened the conference with a welcome to the Butchers' Hall. Worldaware is grateful to Sir Roger for enabling the facilities of the entire Hall to be booked at a considerably reduced rate.

Andrew Fraser, independent adviser for Mitsubishi Corporation and President of Worldaware, introduced the themes for the day with emphasis on the 'constructive dialogue' about to take place.
