Event description

Description

Presented in partnership with the Food Wastage Fighters Society and Sydney Ideas.

One third of all food produced in the subsequent stages of the food supply chain is wasted between initial production and household consumption. Food waste poses serious environmental and social consequences, which will only increase in the future.

While it is easy to see the issues of food wastage, it is often difficult to locate the source of these problems.

Are consumers ultimately responsible for food wastage? Leaders from agriculture, community activism, food aid and social entrepreneurship will debate this question, and determine whether or not the heart of the food waste problem lies with consumers.

The debaters, each with distinct standpoints on how we can address the issue of food waste, will get to the heart of the problem and encourage the audience to think critically about how we consume and dispose of our food.

Alana Mann, Chair of the Department of Media and Communications, University of Sydney
