Event description

Description

Celebrate end of exams in style! Join us on Friday June 30 for a fancy lunch on a budget, and hear from an economist, leading NGOs and a local social enterprise on taking action to change the world-one local step at a time!

For lunch, we will Dine Below the Line, with food served at $2 (included in the $5 ticket donation) a head. Donations from your meal event go to initiatives of youth-led anti-poverty NGO Oaktree, who are running the Dine Below the Line campaign. These initiatives include education projects to help break the cycle of poverty in Cambodia and Timor-Leste. Ingredients for this meal will be supplied by the Harvest Hub, a social enterprise that supplied local, fresh produce to Sydney communities including MQ Uni.

Speakers (there will be time for Q&A):

Prashan Karuratne. Prashan is an economics lecturer at MQ Uni who will provide an economic perspective on sustainable social enterprises.

Jayne, co-founder of Harvest Hub. Jayne will speak on the Harvest Hub as a social enterprise, why $2 a serve, food sovereignty and how we can change the way we eat.
