Global Sustainability Seminar

by Jane Ginn

Dr. Stefan Sommer of the College of Engineering, Forestry and Natural Sciences at Northern Arizona University (NAU) holds a Global Sustainability Seminar each year.  He brings in specialists from many of the different NAU colleges and he also brings in a few business professionals that can contribute to the program’s learning objectives.  I’ve had the opportunity to be included as part of this seminar series for the past 2 years.  My presentation is in his ‘Economics’ section and is entitled: Fair Trade in the Global Economy.

If you are interested in seeing my PowerPoint for this class please contact me at jane (at) sedonacyberlink.com.  You’ll see that I am referencing some of the key theoretical, conceptual and institutional frameworks of the globalization agenda and illustrating how the special trade category known as “fair trade” fits into this bigger picture.
