Food@Sydney 2014 Wraps Up!

Food@Sydney has come to an end for 2014 but we’ll be tackling more big food issues next year.

This week we rounded out our Food@Sydney seminar series with a talk on global food and nutrition, security and climate change presented by SEI’s Bill Prichard, John Ingram from Oxford University and Debbie Hunt from Oxfam Australia.

It was a fitting end to a thought provoking series.

Food@Sydney received a warm welcome from The University of Sydney community, with a strong crowd for all seven of the seminars. So far, SEI has received feedback from attendees that the events were a great showcase of food research across faculties and that the ample question time at each seminar sparked lively public debate.

The series started off on the topic of food waste with speakers from OzHarvest and the Youth Food Movement before tackling the big issues of obesity, sustainable fisheries, smallholder agriculture and food sovereignty.

SEI would like to extend a big thank you to everyone who was involved in the first Food@Sydney and we look forward to exploring more food issues and topics when we reprise the series next year.
