Announcing the inaugural Food for Thought and Action Series!

Food For Thought and Action

Designed to encourage the exchange of ideas and knowledge, showcase local and international food systems expertise and spark dialogue and action to galvanise the food movement.

Our international guest speaker, Eric Holt Giménez from Food First, California, will be joining local food systems leaders to examine a range of pressing food and agricultural issues and provide examples of practical and inspiring solutions to help transform our food system.

Spanning four major cities and three regional areas, with support and participation from a diverse array of food and farmer organisations, join us for a night of discussion and debate at an event near you!
