Future Events and Activities in Gosport

FAIRTRADE FORTNIGHT 2020 IS COMING!

In 2020 we will continue our mission to ensure that all farmers are paid fairly for their work and are able to earn a living income, starting with cocoa farmers in West Africa. 

They all deserve Fairtrade!

Fairtrade Fortnight in Gosport will be from Sunday 23 February – Sunday 8 March 2020.

This is year two of our living incomes campaign. We’ll be continuing to focus on cocoa, the special role women farmers play in the journey to living incomes, and sharing new stories and tools to get more people choosing Fairtrade chocolate. We shall feature the stories of some truly inspiring women from Côte d’Ivoire, and Sierra Leone, who want their stories to be heard by the UK. We shall also be acknowledging the impact of climate change on vulnerable farmers: Fairtrade can help them adapt to change and care for their environment.

If you want to put on an event, you will find all the information you need to start planning your events in the 2020 ACTION GUIDE and you will also find printed resources including event posters and our campaigner briefing on oue-shop now. Contact Gosport Fairtrade Action who will be pleased to help.

Are you involved with any football teams in Gosport?

I expect you insist on Fair Play at all times!  Did you know that you could play and train with Fairtrade footballs?  – no need for any more exploitation of child labour just so our children can enjoy their footie!

Donna, one of GFA’s members, is visiting clubs and schools with a Fairtrade football and would love to talk to you about it – Why not invite her along to your club or school to find out more?

Contact her here

Here is a short  video about Fairtrade footballs
