The Future of Food
When: Wednesday, 16 September 2020
Time: 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm AEST
Food is about connection.
It connects us to each other, to nature, to culture and to the economy around us. It affects our health, our moods and even our ability to learn.
The future of food, therefore, has impacts on the future of everything else we care about, and in particular on the sustainability of our climate and ecosystems.
Right now much of the food we consume is making us unhealthy and unhappy while simultaneously destroying the sustainability of the ecology humans have always relied on. How can we turn this around?
This session of Think|Act|Change will bring together leaders in food innovation and sustainability to share their insights on where things are moving and how to make a food system that is better for us and for the world.
