How secure is Western Australia’s food system? And what do we want it to look like in 2030?
Diverse stakeholders from all corners of our food system are coming together to discuss the unique challenges and opportunities facing our state, plus how we can all work towards securing WA’s food future.
Don’t miss the chance to connect with and learn from the local legends working to create an equitable, resilient, and sustainable food future for all.
You’ll be feasting on culinary delights from Bindi Bindi Dreaming while hearing from an incredible lineup of speakers.
No matter your connection to food systems, we’d love to see you there.
Let’s break bread!
The Western Australian division of the United Nations Association of Australia (UNAAWA) and with Sustain: The Australian Food Network are delighted to bring you this Independent Summit Dialogue. Aside from the local community coming together around an issue which affects us all, it’s also an opportunity for Western Australia to have a seat at the table and contribute to the Summit process.
UN Food Systems Summit
In 2021, UN Secretary-General António Guterres will convene a Food Systems Summit as part of the Decade of Action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. The Summit will launch bold new actions to deliver progress on all 17 SDGs, each of which contribute to achieving a healthier, more sustainable and equitable food system.
It is a people’s summit – for everyone, everywhere. Bringing together farmers, First Nations people, youth organisations, consumer groups, environmental advocacy, as well as key players from the world of science, business, policy, healthcare and academia, and other key stakeholders. It is also a solutions summit that will require everyone to take action to transform the world’s food system.
WA’s Independent Dialogue aims to adapt this inclusive format to our local context. Let’s take the opportunity to engage all citizens as food system stakeholders, to bring about tangible, positive changes to our local food system.
