New Economics: Fair Trade & Collaboration

The next meeting of the Fair Trade & Sharing Economy Group will be an informal get together to discuss how this group will develop in the next few months.

In developing this group we have looked at fair trade and the growing sharing economy. In a way they are both a part of the new economy movement that is redefining the way we think of economics

We hope to have a speaker to introduce this

Ruby Iqbal has helped to get this group together and has done some really great work to make it interesting and well attended. Unfortunately because of pressure of work she will unable to be as active as she has been. We are really grateful for what she has done

So at this meeting we will look at fair trade and sharing as part of the New Economy movement and spend some time thinking about future events and who can help us co-ordinate with ideas,admin and web and social network promotion

So this could be an important meeting of what has been a successful group and we would really welcome you attending to help us move this forward in a successful way.

    an unmeeting to try to work up a committee and to find an acceptable name for the group. The need for a glossary was clear. Great company and good discussion.

    Thanks to the small but keen group of people, heart-warming to see others with the same concerns - those who would like to discuss, understand, promote, make work the sharing and even dare I say caring economy. All the best, it was lovely to be there.

    Sorry for the last minute change of plan, but I won't be around tonight after all. Have a good evening all.

    I can't make this one unfortunately but looking forward to the next one. Incidentally, regarding 'fair trade' we're working on a fair exchange for personal data (opt-in only, anonymised and we all get the £$ that's ours). If data is the fuel of the new economy, how do we ensure that we all get a fair return for the data we share?
