Speaking and facilitation

Last year I facilitated a Women in Leadership course mentoring good home cooks to turn their signature dishes into products and offerings for Melbourne Farmers Markets

I ran a process of student-led co-design to produce a report on food policy for Australian universities with the Fair Food Challenge and produced and hosted the event What Could a Fair Food Look Like? which was attended by representatives from nine Australian universities. I have been invited to speak at the University of Melbourne Sustainability Plan Forum and the Plan’s launch, a campus food systems workshop at the University of Queensland and events at Deakin University, the University of Sydney, William Angliss Institute, the University of Western Australia and the University of Tasmania.

I've appeared on panels for Carlton Connect and the Future of Local Government National Summit, Spoken for OzHarvest's annual Eat Think Save event, and at the Environmental Film Festival for Bugs on the Menu and  Waste Not, Want Not - Changing our Food System to Reduce Food Waste. I also teamed up with EFFA to design the school's program forJust Eat It: A Food Waste Story:

I hosted a conversation about food waste for the Global Ideas Forum labs program and imagined the 22nd Century marketplace for Carlton Connect's Absolutely Famished program. I discussed the future of university sustainability at The Sustainability Plan 2016-2020 Forum for the University of Melbourne and also spoke about sustainable eating at Think, Eat, Talk, Grow to launch the University of Melbourne Famers' Markets.

I've hosted panels for the Youth Food Movement, facilitated community dinners and feedback sessions for the City of Melbourne and presented on Collapse and The Landscape of Crisis: Engagement with sites of disaster and environmental crisis for Critical Animals Creative Research Symposium.
