As part of the Fairtrade Fortnight
DOVER FAIRTRADE TOWN NETWORK
Invites you to
WEDNESDAY 8th MARCH 2023
Maison Dieu House, Biggin Street, Dover, CT16 1DW
FAIRTRADE FORTNIGHT 2023 (27th February – 12th March 2023) will once again shine a spotlight on the climate crisis and the increasing threat it poses to some of the planet’s most beloved food products as well as the livelihoods of the farmers and agricultural workers who grow them. It will show how the future survival of the world’s most popular foods – such as bananas, cocoa, and coffee – hangs in the balance unless we achieve inclusive and equitable climate solutions, with farmers and agricultural workers playing a central role in the climate response.
Hundreds of exciting events traditionally take place across the country during Fairtrade Fortnight, organised by Fairtrade supporters and ethical shoppers in local communities who are committed to campaigning for social justice. From Belfast to Bournemouth and Aberdeen to Aberystwyth, Liverpool to London, each one will bring home the message that choosing Fairtrade, whatever your budget and wherever you shop, means a more sustainable future for our favourite foods and an investment in farmers to take care of the environment. Both Dover and Deal have Fairtrade Town status and it is very important that we continue to work with the Community to maintain this status; our aim is to have a Fairtrade District, and we already have the support of both the Town Councils and Dover District Council.
As well as dozens of classic Fairtrade coffee mornings, pub quizzes, film screenings and special school assemblies, local activists are linking up directly with Fairtrade farming communities, building online databases of Fairtrade cafes, doing Park Runs in their Fairtrade banana suits and running many more innovative initiatives to spread the word on Fairtrade.
