In My Place: Oxfam, Coldplay and you fight land grabs
 
05:01
Big land deals are putting people and their possessions out of place, forcing them from the place they call home. To send a global message about this injustice, thousands of you, including actor Dominic Cooper, band Wolf Gang and singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, sent Oxfam photos and videos of ordinary things out of place, echoing the displacement of land grabs. And Coldplay's music video director, Mat Whitecross, put them to an exclusive version of their song, In My Place. Oxfam now needs you to raise your voices in support of change. Take action at http://oxf.am/inmyplacefilm This acoustic version of In My Place is from a performance recorded at Absolute Radio's studios in One Golden Square in 2002. Courtesy of Absolute Radio.

Robin Hood Tax
 
03:25
Oxfam is supporting the Robin Hood Tax campaign as part of a coalition of over 50 charities. Watch Bill Nighy explain this 'sweet, little idea.' Robin Hood Tax is a tiny tax on bankers that would raise billions to tackle poverty and climate change, at home and abroad. If governments took a tiny tax of 0.05% from international bankers transactions, it could generate hundreds of billions of pounds every year that could stop cuts in crucial public services at home in UK, and help fight global poverty and climate change. www.oxfam.org.uk/robinhoodtax

80 billionaires on 2 buses #EvenItUp #thingscanchange | Oxfam GB

Join Oxfam's Even it Up campaign www.oxfam.org.uk/even and fight inequality. Michael Winterbottom and Russell Brand have made a documentary about inequality and here's a short behind the scene film about it. Like a lot of people, Michael and Russel were very struck when Oxfam came up with the figure that 80 of the richest people have as much money as half of then entire population and it inspired The Emperor's New Clothes. Michael went to Mukuru (Nairobi) to show how grotesque this figure is. He did that by asking 80 local activists to become the 80 billionaires for the day. They all got on 2 buses that travelled through Mukuru. What do you make of Russell and Michael's film?

Back in 2015, she was in her senior year at high school and took part in sit-ins to resist the state government’s plan to close 94 schools in the state of São Paulo and to send pupils to overcrowded schools far from home, including Thailla’s school. Thanks to the mobilization, the changes were halted. Since the protests in 2015, the Brazilian federal government has approved a 20 year freeze on public spending, including education. This freeze risks increasing inequality and the educational divide in Brazil. Thailla, her fellow student activists and Oxfam Brasil will continue their campaigning to fight inequality in Brazil in 2017.

The Green Granny does Four-a-Week
 
03:50
http://www.oxfam.org.uk/goodideas: Oxfam's "Green Granny" is back with new tips and ideas for living better and saving money. This video introduces the idea of 4-a-week which involves buying more fairtrade, wasting less, buying less meat products and buying more from developing countries. GET INVOLVED Worried about climate change? Confused about how your weekly supermarket shop impacts upon the environment? You need a personal shopper. No we're not talking about Gok Wan. We've launched our 4-a-week personal shopper guide. Stick it in your handbag, your manbag, we don't mind. Just make sure it's to hand next time you go shopping. Believe it or not, the small changes you make at the till, can have a real impact on climate change. So here's our 4-a-week, shelf-aware shopping list... BUY ONE MORE FAIRTRADE PRODUCT Flowers, Hot Chocolate, Cotton, Teas, Honey, Biscuits, Beer, Wine, that's a list as long as your arm. Fairtrade isnt just about coffee and bananas these days. By buying a Fairtrade product you're guaranteeing producers a good price and working conditions. Don't forget Fairtrade Fortnight, it launches this Sunday and runs until the 8th March. To see how you can get involved with this years campaign go to www.fairtrade.org.uk THROW ONE LESS THING AWAY Don't B.O.G.O.F, yes you heard us right. Did you know that as a nation we throw away over 20million tonnes of good food a year. Next time you go shopping, think before you buy. Are you really going to eat all that? Leftovers from last nights dinner? Try some of these recipes from lovefoodhatewaste.com BUY ONE MORE THING FROM A DEVELOPING COUNTRY We know what you're thinking, what about all those air miles? But, buying something with the lowest environmental impact doesn't necessarily mean buying local - emissions from transporting food make only around 12 percent of the total.. The people who are being hit hardest by climate change are also the people who depend on us most. Over 1.5 million poor farmers in Africa depend on the UK market to earn a living. So check the label next time you're buying things like rice or beans. BUY ONE LESS MEAT OR DIARY PRODUCT Here's a trivia question for you, What generates more harmful emissions? Is it A) Cows or B) All the transport on the entire planet? Shock, horror. The answer is actually A. Those cows are gassy beings, emitting large amounts of methane, which is 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide. We're not asking you to give up steaks completely, just try switching to something else once a week. You could start by ditching the beef lasagne and opting for a veggie one.

The broken food system in India (full version)
 
13:48
The global food system is broken. Almost one billion people go to bed hungry each night. It's not because there isn't enough food but because climate change, land and water scarcity, food price spikes and lack of investment in small scale agriculture means that it doesn't get to those who need it most. We travelled to India, where a quarter of the world's hungry live, to see first hand how people are being affected and some of the solutions they're trying which could help fix the system.

London land grab!
 
02:07
To find out more and take action on land grabs visit http://bit.ly/VOsyZZ In poor countries an area of land the size of London is sold to foreign investors every six days. Most of these land deals are unregulated and result in poor communities being evicted from their land at no notice and without compensation. Unscrupulous deals are pushing people into poverty and hunger. The World Bank funds many big land deals and also influences how land is bought and sold. So this means it has the power to stop land grabs. Special thanks to the people of Putney who helped us grab their town.

No Accident: Resilience and the inequality of risk
 
03:01
We need a new approach to risk and poverty reduction. Major external risks, such as climate change and food price volatility, are increasing faster than attempts to reduce them. Many risks are dumped on poor people, and women face an overwhelming burden. In many places of recurrent crises, the response of governments and the international aid sector is not good enough. A new focus on building resilience offers real promise to allow the poorest women and men to thrive despite shocks, stresses, and uncertainty -- but only if risk is more equally shared globally and across societies. This will require a major shift in development work, which for too long has avoided dealing with risk. More fundamentally, it will require challenging the inequality that exposes poor people to far more risk than the rich. For more information, go to www.oxfam.org.uk/resilience

Oxfam's work on food poverty in the UK
 
02:15
Oxfam believes that everybody in the UK should have enough to eat. With Unilever's support, we have been making sure that families don't go hungry. Our work with the Trussell Trust foodbank network has meant that around two million meals have been provided to families in crisis - families that otherwise have been forced to skip meals or choose whether to 'heat or eat' during the winter months. We also work with FareShare, to make sure that unwanted food goes to people that need it rather than being wasted. As well as supporting foodbanks, Oxfam is working to tackle the longer term problems that mean families need to rely on foodbanks - we're working towards a world where everybody can live their lives with dignity and free from poverty. http://www.oxfam.org.uk/clearaplate
