Development Compass Rose

Development Compass Rose

This is a tool that encourages us to ask a range of questions about a photograph, issue or artefact. It is a useful enquiry framework to raise questions around environmental, social, economic and political issues. It offers a simple and effective model for planning exploration of any topic, asking the key questions which truly encourage critical thinking.

The Trading Game

The Trading Game

Enjoyed by young people and adults alike, this game explores the unfair nature of global trading and works well as an introduction to Fairtrade. Participants are divided into a range of countries which have to produce items for sale - under very unfair rules. It is totally absorbing at the same time as introducing participants to how it feels to try to survive in a very unfair world.
