If you want to know where the next environmental issue will arise, says UNESCO education expert Charles Hopkins, "look at where capital investment is moving." This program makes a thesis of that observation while expanding it to examine not only ecological but also socioeconomic dilemmas. An unflinching look at an Indian toxic waste dump, including its health impact on the surrounding population, and an eye-opening journey through a Sri Lankan free trade zone, complete with overcrowded worker "dormitories," help point out globalization's ongoing challenges. Policy solutions are offered in various forms, while on-the-ground hope emerges in a case study of the Dem Collective, an ethically and ecologically sound textile producer operating in Sri Lanka.
