Granny/Grandson call – Mind the Gap

Please enjoy the video below and an activity created by one of our Green-Schools friends, Arran Towers. Arran, with his organisation Mind the Gap, has been offering themed performances and workshops to schools going for the Global Citizenship themes, mostly about Fairtrade, to support their Green-Schools work for the Global Citizenship theme. This video will teach you a little bit about Fairtrade and about our connections to people all around the world through the food supply chain. Your activity is to create a paper people chain.
