Peace and Justice, Workshop, November 10th 2022

With the increase in military spending due to the war in Ukraine and let’s face it many other wars happening in the world. There is an increasing need for us to be anti-war and peace agents. This online workshop in collaboration with Afri will bring you (and therefore your students) on a journey from a global overview of war and militarisation to taking meaningful action in your school.

Modern Day Slavery

The abolition of the transatlantic slave trade began 200 years ago, and many schools marked this event. However, new forms of slavery are prevalent today.

Trade Justice

Trade has always been an important part of society, however current trade rules do tend to benefit the richer countries.

Peace keeping

Peace and stability are central to sustainable development.

Conflict and the Global Arms Trade

The world cannot afford war. People cannot stand by while the numbers of war and environmental refugees soar, while poverty spreads like an epidemic and money for education, health, job training and other needed services are stolen to pay for weapons.

Resource Extraction

Countries that are rich in natural resources are often poor and suffer from high rates of inequality, corruption, human rights abuse, and environmental degradation.

The Circular Economy

The circular economy is a process of minimising waste and making the most out of finite resources to achieve sustainable development.

Access to Markets and Industry

Goal 9 focuses on making sure that industries and infrastructure is future-proofed and responsive to the needs of people, giving people the tools to find long term solutions to problems.

Degrowth

For decades, global economies have focused on growth, often at the expense of the environment, traditional land use and land rights of indigenous people and the habitats of plant and animal species.
