In this issue
- Making fashion fair The cover girl for the summer issue is Jeanine Glöyer who founded the fair trade fashion label Jyoti, which now provides a livelihood for a dozen women in the Indian city of Chittapur. Jeanine Glöyer’s initiative accounts for less than one percent of the textile industry, but it still has a strong impact for those women in India whose daughters will now be able to get a university education.
- Dreams – an inspirational organic farm When Vivien Scheidler and her husband Boudewijn Kegel fell in love with a farm near Belgrade, the land was barely useable. The area is called “Jalovik”, which means “barren land”. But the couple has since transformed contaminated soil into a flowering landscape. Their story is small but making a big difference for the young people who are now coming to Jalovik to learn about biodynamic farming.
- Vibrant life in Tel Aviv, Israel Tel Avivian Agnes Fazekas takes us on a whistle-stop tour of the city and highlights her favourite haunts, inviting us to soak up the true flavour of this multicultural modern city that is full of colour and contradictions.
