Children debate why 'It's Not Fair'

Manx primary school children are going to be debating why 'It's Not Fair' in Tynwald this week.

The One World Centre has organised the Isle of Man's first ever Fairtrade Conference with the aim of teaching youngsters about the importance of trading fairly.

It comes as we seek to renew our status as a Fairtrade Island.

In the special sitting tomorrow (Thursday) there'll be workshops, invited guest speakers and a debate hosted by Tynwald President Clare Christian.

One World director Rosemary Clarke believes youngsters are sometimes more able to grasp the concept of Fairtrade than adults.
