Climate change. Health and wellbeing. Connected and flourishing communities. Sustainability. Resilience. Fairness. Food systems are at the centre of all of these fundamental challenges – and urban agriculture – cities feeding themselves and supporting nearby farmers – is essential to our flourishing in this century.
The 2018 Urban Agriculture Forum will build on the success of the inaugural 2016 Forum, a ground-breaking event attended by 170 people from around Australia.
The 2018 UAF will showcase how urban agriculture creates more liveable cities, communities and homes.
Participants will share and explore success stories and lessons of practice and policy, from around Australia and internationally.
We’ll discuss and plan how Australians from diverse backgrounds and sectors can work together to meet the global Sustainable Development Goals, especially SDG 11, ‘Sustainable Cities and Communities.
The Urban Agriculture Forum runs across two days – 23 and 24 February 2018
