The World Fair Trade Organisation has declared the 9th of May 09 to be World Fair Trade Day.
The theme will be ‘Big Bang!!’, and drumming events are being held worldwide: “Kicking off on the date line, in the Cook Islands, circling the earth in a rolling programme of drumming events, through all cultures and traditions, from first to last light, closing in Samoa” promises the website. “A global day lasting 48 hours and bringing together musicians and media, supporters and performers, audiences and producers, politicians and voters, brands and economists, to open up markets and minds to sustainable living.”
If you want to take part, visit the website and download posters, ideas, and everything you need to bring the Big Bang to your school, church, shop or street.
