Event Details

In recent years there has been a steady emergence of local food and urban agriculture initiatives around the world, including Australia. These initiatives have been championed by motivated individuals, communities and forward-thinking policy makers who recognise that re-localising food systems around urban communities can create many social, environmental and economic benefits for the community and business. Establishing more localised food systems is also pivotal in the global movement towards a more sustainable and socially-equitable future that responds to the challenges of climate change, peak oil and other pressures.

This interactive session will consider the tangible potential that exists in Australia’s cities and regional communities to create sustainable local food systems. Critically, it will reinforce the role that Landscape Architects and a multi-disciplinary approach should have in helping to catalyse this change through strategy and opportunism.

The output from the session will be a provocative and punchy discussion paper and blog on behalf of AILA, to capture the thoughts, ideas and passion of attendees.

Organiser

Design + Planning Brisbane Team, AECOM

The landscape studio within AECOM is an integrated and energetic part of the design and planning practice, with activity spread across a wide range of city-shaping projects, with connections throughout the Asian region and global business. The Brisbane team works as part of the Australian national practice and leads integrated design and delivery across projects ranging from discrete local parks to high profile integrated infrastructure.

We are passionate about the opportunities presented by fully integrated professional services; we work with other professional disciplines to interrogate potential and find solutions to our shared global challenges. The diverse scope of project activity ranges from climate change adaptation to integrated community infrastructure.

Place-making ambitions drive the studio to work with clients, partners and a range of collaborators to create, enhance and sustain the world’s built, natural and social environments.
