This pack explores the realities, for people and their environment, behind the production and trade of our favourite fruit, the banana. Bananas provide an example of the many economic and social injustices present in international trade today and this pack aims to empower users to challenge these injustices as active and informed global citizens. Much of the material is drama based, providing a fun and challenging approach to learning.
