Study on Fair Trade Producers in Palestine

CTM Altromercato, in collaboration with Koperattiva Kummerċ Ġust (FRAME project), and with the support of an expert group of two people, has carried out an impact study on a Fair Trade organisation, PARC that is working in the occupied Palestinian Territories. The aim of the study was not only to estimate the impact in terms of labour conditions, economic growth, social development, but also in terms of food security due to the development of local markets, the possibility to cultivate crops for local consumption, the incidence of exportation on the whole agriculture production, and so on.

The results have been published in the form of a power point presentation.

“Living Library” will be challenging stereotypes!

“Living Library” invites everyone for a unique experience this Saturday, 19th June 2010, from 6 p.m. till 9 p.m. in Floriana, Argotti Gardens. This Human Rights Education event is organised on the occasion of the annual World Refugee Day and will be held as part of other activities, such as fun games, painting and face painting for the kids.

“Living Library” – what is that?

“Living Library” works as any other usual library. The Reader comes to the library and borrows a Book for a period of time. When the reading time is over, the Reader places the Book back in the Library and takes another one if he or she wants. The only different between “a library” and a “Living Library” is that in this activity Books are people, so Reading is a conversation.
