Most of us don't think much about food as long as it is readily available and arrives on our table whenever we're hungry. The UNSW Centre for Ideas based in Sydney, Australia wants people to ponder more about what's happening in the world of food production and consumption and the added dimensions of waste, hunger, changing diets, ethical treatment of animals and environmental damage.
Supported by Inspiring Australia as a part of National Science Week, the Centre has brought together food and health expert Johannes le Coutre and journalist Joanna Savill to explore the future of food.
Dr le Coutre is noted for his work on molecular taste physiology, nutrition science and food innovation. He is responsible for the UNSW food program as Professor of Food & Health. Joanna is a journalist, TV presenter, restaurant reviewer and events director with a long career in the food world.
The event is held on 16 August 2021 and starts at 4.30pm AEST. Register here to join this free event. It will be available on the UNSW Centre for Ideas website, Facebook, and UNSW's YouTube channel. A link to watch this event will be sent on the day of the event to registered attendees.
