About the event

Is  it too extreme to remind you that the world is at a critical turning  point, not just environmentally, but economically and politically?  Scientists  are telling us that we have significantly altered the Earth through our  human activity, and therefore we are living in a new geological and  planetary era, the Anthropocene – where humans have become the dominant  force shaping our Earths bio geophysical composition and process.

How  does this impact, particularly at the fundamental level of nourishing  our mere survival with food for all humans on this planet? Does what we  eat matter more than whether it is local or organic? What are we not  getting when it comes to understanding sustainable access to food and to  food systems, where no one on this planet goes hungry, and where we no  longer waste 30% of our global food production? It seems what we are  importantly missing, is how, what, and where we eat effects a disturbing  web of factors that we are only just beginning to understand bears dire  consequences.

Join  us for this critical conversation, take your seat at the table with  Associate Professor Alana Mann, challenging us to think beyond our  plates, to make our food systems more equitable and resilient, and to  understand the beast, that is the world food economy that we are all  ingesting.

This  is an invitation to all who desire to learn more truths about food in a  changing climate, which is bound–up in inequality and a slow violent  destruction.


Associate  Professor Alana Mann is an interdisciplinary scholar focusing on  democracy, social justice and citizenship, reflected in her focus on the  power relations between the media, governments, institutions and civil  society actors in the field of food politics.

She  is a Chief Investigator on the Australian Research Council (ARC) funded  project FoodLab Sydney.  She is the author of Voice and Participation  in Global Food Politics (2019) & Global Activism in Food Politics:  Power Shift (2014), and her latest book Food in a Changing Climate  (2021).


In partnership with: FoodLab  Sydney – a for-purpose incubator comprised of exceptional local food  artisans and experienced business professionals passionate about helping  people launch their own food businesses.


Please  note: Our aim is to make this a COVID safe event and so numbers are  limited and date may change depending on the GOVT NSW guidelines at the  time.
