The Trade for Development Centre (TDC) of the Belgian development agency BTC visits Aurelsa, a Peruvian mining cooperative that it supports. The miners explain how more than 30 years ago they arrived at a place that was completely empty and how they started mining without any protection. Today they extract fair trade gold which has a huge impact on their living conditions.
We follow the fair trade gold coming into Europe. The first Belgian jeweller ever to work with fair trade gold talks about the difficulties she faces and points out the steps we need to take to turn the fair trade gold story into a success.
