With Fair Rubber, many people connect good working conditions in poor countries. But what exactly is different, if you buy products from Fair Trade? What does one as a
consumer support, if one buys products from Fair Trade? Should Fair Trade be mandatory for all goods or would this make products too expensive? Students deal with these question in a short
learning sequence at the example of the Fair Rubber Association. The teaching and learning sequence is designed for classes 10-12. It contains an introduction for teachers, a detailed lesson
plan, an extensive coverage of Fair Rubber as well as its Fair Trade projects and finally a discussion about the question, whether Fair Trade should be mandatory. The material is based on
standards from global learning. It is ready to be used and covers app. 2-3 lessons. Unfortunately, at this point only the German version of the teaching material is ready for publication. David
Löw Beer has produced the material and appreciates any feedback.
