Food for Thought: Research for Food Security

Roger Leigh

In support of a free public forum being held as part of Research Tuesdays Director of the Waite Research Institute Professor Roger A. Leigh gave a short interview for Between the Buttons.

The public forum will explore the global food crisis. If the growing body of experts is right, dwindling global food security poses a significant threat to much of humanity.  Influenced by numerous factors, including climate change, population growth and rising fuel costs, it has the potential to cause widespread famine and civil unrest.  Indeed, in many countries, it already has.  In this live forum, four leading University of Adelaide thinkers will explore the most critical issues surrounding the crisis and invite questions from the floor.

Research Tuesdays are Free Public Forums. Feeding Anxiety: The World Food Crisis Forum will be held on Tuesday 8th June, from 5.30-7.00pm, at  the University of Adelaide North Terrace Campus, Napier Building, Lecture Theatre 102. Map

Admission is free – bookings are essential.
