Description


Sydney Ideas Sydney Environment Institute


Too many Australians are going hungry in the City. Recent research from the City of Sydney found that a staggering 8% of residents were food insecure, struggling with the challenge of putting good, healthy, and sustainable food on the table. What is being done—and what more can we do—to help address this problem? What food-related urban planning policy actions are required to promote food justice?

Join
our panel of experts to explore this question, and to anticipate what Sydney’s urban food system will look like in the future.

Speakers:

  • David Schlosberg, Professor of Environmental Politics, Department of Government and International Relations, Co -Director, Sydney Environment Institute, University of Sydney

  • Allison Heller, Manager Social Strategy, City of Sydney

  • Rhiannon Cook, Senior Policy Officer, New South Wales Council for Social Services
