Modern Slavery – How Sustainable Living Can Tackle the Exploitation of People and Create a Fairer and Safer World

Eradicating Modern Slavery is a fundamental aspect of sustainability, it must be considered in the transition to a 'green economy'.

Join Trisha for a practical discussion of what we can do as individuals, community groups and businesses to tackle this issue and create a safer future for all.
