“Konsum Global” in Rostock – a city walk
In our globalized world we can get everything we want at any time. This is made possible by a global network involving parties who exploit the natural resources, others that operate in further processing or manufacturing of consumer goods and finally trading companies that bring the final products in our supermarkets.
- Which advantages and disadvantages result from this economic system?
- What do low prices imply for humans and for the ecosystem?
With this city walk we aim to raise awareness for these global interdependencies and encourage the participants to try out already existing alternatives.
For further studies of the issue of globalization and consumption, we recommend our course ” The world’s good(s)”.
