Thursday 18 June 2020 from 6pm to 7:30pm

According to the CSIRO, we'll consume as much food in the next 4 decades as we did in the past few hundred years. This represents around a 70% increase in production by 2050. But that increase has come at a significant cost to the environment that isn't sustainable.

And in light of COVID-19, we need an honest public discussion on how to produce our food and a radical rethink on the consequences of a livestock-dominated food system. 

How will food and agritech entrepreneurs meet the needs of a growing global population, whilst also committing to sustainable growth? Hear how groundbreaking innovators are tackling our growing food and environmental crisis. This is a free event but you must register for tickets to receive the livestream link.
