Survive or Thrive: Trade Simulation Game

Have you ever wondered how we apply our principles of fair trade to internationally negotiated trade agreements? We're told that Free Trade agreements will be good for us - but who benefits? Does the topic seem too big, too far away and too complicated?  The Trade Simulation Game is designed to bring these issues to life through stories from our global partners.  Each participant assumes a character in four trade stories loosely based on real scenarios.  The characters share their realities with others and work together to understand the role of trade agreements and the people impacted by these agreements. Discussion focuses on how we can respond on behalf of the poor and the environment. The game is an interactive, fun way to learn about this important issue.
