Join us for Feast of Ideas this Thurs 21 March: food, sustainability and a better food system

David H.
Group Organizer
Melbourne, AU

Healthy food systems are the foundation for healthy lives, communities, economies and ecosystems. In order to build a future for Melbourne in which we can all thrive, we need a food system that is sustainable, resilient and fair.

With the National Sustainable Food Summit wrapping up, and the EcoCityFood Forum on the following day, we thought we would capitalise on this great opportunity to bring together the people and organisations already working toward a better food system to learn more about what we can all do to make this a reality. At A Feast of Ideas: The EcoCity Food Lightning Talks we will explore the opportunities, celebrate the innovation and engage in conversation about how we can work together to create better food futures for all.

The format for the evening is designed to inspire thought and ignite action. We've invited six of Australia's leading thinkers, pioneers and 'foodpreneurs' to give five minute lightning talks presenting their ideas, projects or approaches to transforming our current food system to one that is sustainable, resilient and fair.

Venue: Donkey Wheel House, Ground Floor, 673 Bourke Street, Melbourne (near

Date: Thursday 21 March, 2013

Time: 6:30pm - 8:30pm (doors open from 6:15pm. talks start from 6:45pm)
