Event description

Description

Following on from a successful 2017 season, The Greenhouse Sessions are a monthly gathering of influential business leaders, passionate change-makers, experts and people curious to understand how we can leverage emerging technology to save the planet.

But this is so much more than just another tech meet-up.

Using the power of story, a panel of experts, a sprinkling of start-ups, content capture and collaboration, the Greenhouse Sessions promise to educate, inspire and create a framework for collaboration - leaving the audience with the power to author a different future.

In this session, we will be looking at the future of food. From insects on our plate to innovative farming methods to eliminating food fraud via blockchain and AI, we will be exploring all of this and more. Most importantly we'll be digging in to the question: How will we feed 9 billion people without further damage to our environment? Be prepared for some tough questions, and some interesting answers from our panelists:

  • Chris Russell AM - Agricultural Scientist and host of Agriminders podcast
  • Thomas King - CEO, Food Frontier
  • Bridie Ohlsson - Project Lead, AgriDigital
  • Monty Koludrovic - Executive Chef, Icebergs
  • Skye Blackburn - Owner, Edible Bug Shop

The evening's event will also feature three innovative start-ups pitching for your vote, $1,000 in prize money and the chance to win $10,000 at the grand finale.

Get your tickets quickly as this event will reach capacity quickly.

This event is supported by City of Sydney. The venue for this event is sponsored by Stone & Chalk. This event was funded by Lord Mayor's Charitable Foundation Melbourne.
