Fair Food and the UN Sustainable Development Goals
15 October 2021 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
The SDGs are promoted as a pathway to achieving Zero Hunger – but do they apply to fair food initiatives in Australia, and if so, how?
Amidst strong debate around the ongoing exclusion of civil society from food system governance processes such as the UN Food Summit and the SDGs, it is more important than ever that grassroots ‘fair food’ voices are heard.
Discussions will include talks and interactive activities by:
1. Civil society, food justice and the SDGs – Dr Kiah Smith, Fair Food Futures researcher, University of Queensland
2. SDG participation in national/global context – Dr Claire Brolan, Centre for Policy Futures, University of Queensland
4. Localising the SDGs: Learning from Australian civic food – Joanna Horton, postgraduate candidate University of Queensland
