Last weekend, all 150 members of the Third Chamber gathered to talk more about international co-operation and discuss their proposals. A wide range of issues were debated with fervour; from water issues to world peace, from sister-cities to press freedom and from fair-flowers to solar energy. Despite the fact that we, as the Third Chamber, will not be able to change the world at large, it's so inspiring to be amongst a group of people that tries!
With my group, I am working on a proposal on fair clothing. We support the efforts of organisations like the Fair Wear Foundation and the Clean Clothes Campaign to stop childlabour and improve working conditions. Will go and watch China Blue as soon as I can - think you should as well! Visit http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/chinablue for more info
