Global Book Club Monday 6th July 7:00 to 8:30pm 

Global Book Club - Making Trouble Fair trade jewellery has been around for a while - but while those crafting it worked under Fair Trade principles, the gold, silver and precious stones they were using came from some very murky places. Small scale mining is the second biggest global employer, and many of those mines pay a pittance, forcing their workers to labour long hours in dirty and dangerous conditions. Informed by those in the jewellery trade that this would never change, Greg Valerio set out to prove them wrong. Fairly traded gold is now available in the UK, although the battle continues for other metals and products.
