Globalization

Globalization Good idea or bad? Globalization What do you think? What does it mean? It describes the way countries and people of the world interact and integrate. Globalization has many sides and can be economic, political and/ or cultural. Economic globalization is how countries are coming together as one big global economy, making it easier to buy and sell across countries.

-the process of growing and expanding to exist throughout the entire world. An example of globalization is when a company has offices in the US, Europe, China, Mexico and throughout the world. Its a small world after all! Is it positive or negative? Could we ever go back to being self-sufficient? Lets look at the idea further by watching a few videos and reading an article on globalization.

We will look at a brief video on globalization As you watch the video you may wish to gather brief notes on the positives and negatives of globalization (an assessment may be in the near future ;) and how it connects to the sustainability triangle. Globalization easily explained 5 mins

Consumer Choice What do you think about the following scenario? You want to go the United States for a weekend shopping trip. You have heard that clothes might be more fashionable and are a better price than in Manitoba. A member of your family, however, suggests that you should shop in Manitoba to support the Canadian economy and to help the clothing industry at home to become better. What do you think? What are the economic implications if many Canadians go the United States for major shopping trips? Why should you not be able to save some money and shop elsewhere if you want? Does your decision make any

difference to anyone? Fair Trade

A happy medium? Have you heard of it before? Intro video (9 min) Don't just Fair Trade: Trade Fair 30 mins The Dark Side of Chocolate 45 mins Ted Talk: Fair Trade: A Just world starts with you 9 mins A short documentary made up of compiled videos and some extras. This film challenges the naturally accepted notion that fair trade products are the best solution to helping impoverished farmers. While having the movement is better than nothing, there are superior, less controversial

alternatives- such as purchasing premium coffee beans Questions? Can you make a difference? Do you make a difference? Will you or do you think about where your products come from? Chocolate The Bitter Truth The story behind chocolate (8 min) Chocolate is a multi-billion dollar global industry, but, nearly a

decade after key players signed a pledge to eradicate child labour, little has been done to implement it. This special investigation highlights the continuing abuse children suffer in the production of chocolate, despite repeated promises of reform. This film (March 2010) shows that the chocolate industry still supports child labour through its supply chain, that child labour is still rife in the fields and that the industry has made few moves to eradicate it or the child trafficking behind it. Over 40% of the world's cocoa is sourced from the west African

region of Cote d'Ivoire, and the UN estimates that there are around 15,000 children working on the region's cocoa farms. ( read Nestle 'failing' on child labour abuse, says FLA report) These include children as young as eight years old, many from neighbouring Mali, Burkina Faso and Ghana, who are trafficked across borders and used as forced labour. In 2001 the chocolate industry signed up to the Harkin Engel Protocol in which it promised "industry wide standards of public certificationthat cocoa beans and their derivative products are free of the worst forms of child labour".
