The Liverpool Business School is hosting a series of events for Fairtrade Fortnight as part of its commitment to Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME).
The school is screening a number of films in Redmonds Building and online about issues relating to fairtrade for LJMU staff and students.
The films focus on topics including the dark side of chocolate production, the low prices paid to coffee farmers and the use of sweatshop labour in the fashion business.
The screenings are part of LJMU’s engagement with PRME, a United Nations-supported initiative which raises the profile of sustainability in schools around the world.
PRME works with business and management schools to ensure they provide future leaders with the skills needed to balance economic and sustainability goals, with consideration for the UN Sustainable Development Goals and work of the UN Global Compact.
LJMU has stated its commitment to sustainability in its Climate Action Plan, which sets out how the university plans to reach net carbon zero by 2035.
