Loop Program 2 Fair-Trade Game
Fund: Quality Education Fund Fair-trade is a virtual trading partnership game designed to supplement the Loop Program’s module on teaching the principle of Intragenerational Equity. In order to help students understand the importance of preserving the rights of marginalized workers, Fair-trade simulates different real-life scenarios that are encountered by various stakeholders involved in the process of trading. This game aims to relay the importance of safeguarding marginalised groups and the unintended consequences brought by the lack of social responsibility.
Students implemented the concept in a real-life fair-trade bazaar. An evaluative assessment of students engagement in the module found that students had acquired significant first-hand knowledge and acquisition of entrepreneurial and managerial skills by engaging in the process of developing the fair-trade bazaar. Students also understood the importance of social responsibility which was observed in their application of acquired skills and transmission of knowledge to new-comers of the module.
