Add to Calendar 12/10/2021 5:30 PM 12/10/2021 5:30 PM Australia/Sydney Food for Thought: Food Security

Australia is one of the most food secure nations in the world, with access to a wide variety of healthy and nutritious foods. But this does not guarantee equal distributions of foods to individuals who need them. With the impacts of a changing climate and population needs, and the potential for disasters and pandemics to disrupt supply chains, food security is an important topic for Australians to consider now, to prevent bigger problems in the future. 

Join Dr Daniel Walker, Chief Scientist and Acting CEO of the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) and Dr Katherine Kent from the University of Western Sydney, as they discuss the topic of Food Security.

Date: Tuesday 12 October 2021

Time: Refreshments 5.30pm – 6.00pm. Talk 6.00pm – 7.00pm AEDT

Location: The Shine Dome and online

Price: $15 in-person. Free online.

More information about this event will be available in the coming weeks.
