BS7: making ethical production and consumption choices
A week-long programme of events is specially designed for people who are feeling powerless in the face of Covid-19 and the ecological crisis.
Ethical Consumer Week takes space from Saturday 24 - Friday 30 October. Launched by Ethical Consumer Magazine, the online event will look at choices for consumers and the role they can play in building more resilient communities.
Identifying underlying issues, a re-imagined future and the actions that we can take to support it, the week will explore ways that we can all use in our everyday decisions as consumers to do something positive about it.
You can join in the conversation with online panels, workshops, and virtual tours from wherever you are. Topics covered include:
• Food principles and values with Better Food Traders
• Business models for a just and sustainable economy
• A grassroots response to Covid 19
• Creating a community High Street
• Working together to resist corporate power
• Empowering young people
