My jeans and globalisation

An exploration of globalisation using teenager’s 'stuff' as a starting point. Interaction with a real teenager is combined with short animated clips to look at how jeans are involved in the world economy. A young woman is challenged to understand how her jeans are made, and what she can do as a consumer to address the negative impact of jeans production on workers and the environment. The term 'globalisation' is introduced in the context of understanding how many countries are involved in making jeans.
