Maybe you do or maybe you don’t. Maybe you made yours up off the top of your head at 12:30am on Jan 1st after watching the ‘Apple’ drop when someone wished you happy New Years and asked you if you had any resolutions.
Here’s a couple resolutions some noteable people made recently to ensure Freedom for all in 2013.
1. President Barack Obama has made his own resolution of sorts by declaring January National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month in the USA and he invited his fellow citizens to join the effort.
2. Billionaire businessman and philanthropist Andrew Forrest started a little early and in December he challenged the business community through his anti-slavery organisation, Walk Free, to sign a pledge which calls on global industry to combat slave labour in their supply chains.
These resolutions weren’t made up off the top of their heads in the midst of early morning hours celebrations. No, these were thought out resolutions that require resolve and collaboration to be fulfilled.
Do you have any resolutions?
As you think about this issue, are there any resolutions you could make for 2013 (stop eating non-fair trade chocolate, sign a pledge in support of fairtrade…)?
