Greg Valerio is a school drop-out, jeweller and campaigner. 

In this book he describes 15 years travelling the globe, seeking an ethical approach in an industry where poor standards and exploitation are all too common. Valerio takes us to a garnet mine in India, a gold mine in Sierra Leone, Ruby Mountain in Greenland - and to boardrooms around the world where he gradually wins the case for fair trade standards in the jewellery industry.

Join us in Fairtrade Fortnight to discuss Greg's fight for certified Faitrade gold. All welcome.

Email Sue Kay (s.kay@blueyonder.co.uk) for more information.

An initiative of Devon Development Education, Global Book Club Plymouth is supported by Plymouth University.
