The world map of chocolate (made out of chocolate)

taken from Guardian.co.uk

You may be focussing on chocolate over the weekend - but where does it come from? A global trade analysed. In chocolate

Chocolate is seriously big business. 2,650,342 tonnes of cocoa were shipped around the world in 2009/10, according to the latest data from the International Cocoa Organisation.

We wanted to visualise that trade - which is where the Guardian graphics team came in, lovingly creating the map above out of melted chocolate onto greaseproof paper using paintbrushes and letting it cool. Then it was photographed, with the original, er, filed rather deliciously.

KKĠ Handbook For Volunteers

This publication by Koperattiva Kummerċ Ġust is specifically dedicated to youths. The handbook is possible because of the partnership between two Fair Trade organizations – Fair Trade Hellas and Koperattiva Kummerċ Ġust.

The objective of this guide is to provide concrete information on the ethos of volunteering. The inspiration has stemmed from various encounters with volunteers and activists together with consumers and the general public. This is a small user friendly handbook, designed for you to have a smooth reading.

We thank all those who have supported the 'FRAME' project, Fair Trade Hellas for

sharing information, Sophie Colsell for the editing, Kuluri for the meticulous design and lastly but not least, all the youths who will make use of this information.
