People & Planet, formerly known as Third World First, focuses on issues of world poverty, human rights and the environment. For the past thirty years, it has worked with university students, increasing their awareness and understanding of global issues, as well as encouraging them to create positive change through effective campaigning. There are now over 150 People & Planet campaign groups at universities around the UK. Meredith Cochrane reports on its work with sixth formers on Fairtrade.
