JCC Global Village: A day in the Life of a Banana

Join Ellen Goldberg, director New Israel Fund UK, Nikki Levitan, volunteer with Darfuris in Israel, and David Brown from Aegis Trust, discussing the UK and Israel’s treatment of Darfuri asylum seekers.

Global Village is a series of workshops and events developed by the JCC and Tzedek and led by people who work in the field of international development. Come along, get involved and join the discussion.

Have you ever wondered how your banana ended up on a supermarket shelf? Who grew it, who picked it and who decided how much we would pay to transport it to the UK?

Join the Fairtrade Foundation, Christian Aid and Alec van Gelder from The International Policy Network as they explain and debate some of the issues related to fair trade, trade justice and the impact that buying a banana here in the UK has on the lives of people thousands of miles away. The panel will be chaired by Jason Strelitz, founder of the charity Masambiro, which assists education in Malawi, and policy adviser for Save the Children.
