Whose World?

Whose World?

Be brave and educated, educated and brave. Money is power, and you Can decide who you give yours to.

In this final poem by Pangaea Poetry, we are challenged to think about the role that we individually play within the world. How the purchasing decisions that we make, drive the supply chain.

It’s positioned as series of conversations and collaborations between a vast range of companies as no single entity can bring to us the food, water, clothes that we need. Through an array of processes (planning, design, purchasing, manufacturing, distribution and sales) a system is created that delivers innovation and value creation.

In this snakes and ladders game, we all play a big part. The role of the consumer.

Talking point

  • How considered are your purchasing decisions?
  • Do you think you are a responsible consumer?
  • Do you think you could be a more responsible consumer? If so how? If not, why not?
