Sustainable Development: Consumer Responsibility DVD

This DVD contains two series. World of Difference explores three very different groups of young people who won the opportunity to spend £10,000 on a project that could change a small part of the world for the better. The programme follows their progress as they plan their projects and then travel across the world to transform the lives of communities elsewhere. Consumer Power looks at the human and environmental impacts some of our consumer choices have on the world.
