On Tuesday 3rd February, Gosport and Fareham Friends of the Earth will be showing the inspiring short film Connected. The film follows filmmakers Paul and Kate Maple, who decided to pack up their house and live in a caravan for a year to travel across Europe to ask questions about the kind of future we all want to see. Can we build a fair economy? Can ordinary people influence society? Can we create a sustainable future for the next generation?
The screening of the film will be introduced with a presentation by Kate Maple who will tell us more about the making of the film and the movement for change it's launched.
This is part of the group's First Tuesday programme of events. On the First Tuesday of each month, they will be hosting an evening of film or talk on environmentally topical issues, with opportunities for Q&A and discussion.
Come and join them at 7:30pm on 3rd February, in the Methodist Church on Stoke Road, Gosport.

Every month people who are interested in environmental issues meet up at informal sessions known as Green Drinks. The next one for Portsmouth Green Drinks is Tuesday 10th February 2015 starting at 7pm at the Kings Pub, Albert Road, Southsea, Portsmouth, Hampshire PO5 2SE.
They have a lively mixture of people from NGOs, academia, government and business. Come along and you'll be made welcome. Just say, "are you green?" and they will look after you and introduce you to whoever is there. It's a great way of catching up with people you know and also for making new contacts. Everyone invites someone else along, so there’s always a different crowd, making Green Drinks an organic, self-organising network.
These events are very simple and unstructured, but many people have found employment, made friends, developed new ideas, done deals and had moments of serendipity. It's a force for the good and they would like to help it spread!
