A panel discussion about moving towards a food system that contributes positively to health, wellbeing, the economy and the environment.
There’s arguably little else more important than ensuring an adequate and healthy food supply for our people, and in our changing world, food systems will need to adapt. This panel will address the question: how can New Zealand move towards a food system that contributes positively to health, wellbeing, the economy and the environment? Panelists will discuss the current state of our food systems on land and at sea, and talk about what research is being undertaken to drive positive change.

Established in 2014, the eleven government-funded National Science Challenges are cross-disciplinary, mission-led programmes designed to tackle New Zealand’s biggest science-based challenges. As they enter their final year of funding, representatives of each Science Challenge will gather in Dunedin across four nights to discuss some of the impactful research that has come out of these initiatives and how it is being applied across Aotearoa for the benefit of us all.
The adjoining Dish Cafe will be open before and after this event for coffee & drinks. Nibbles provided after the talk to encourage the conversation to continue.
