An informal discussion with speakers about the impact of Fairtrade and what consumers can do to ensure that their choices have a positive impact. Organised by Sheffield Hallam Students Union and Sheffield Festival of Debate, hosted by Opus Independents which also publishes the "Localcheck" Alt-Sheff column in "Now Then" magazine.
