Food UnConference

I think Reclaim the Curb is the last food blog in Melbourne to mention this upcoming Unconference next Friday 22nd. But just in case you didn’t hear about it and are keen, here are the details:

Friday 22nd at Donkey Wheel House [bottom of bourke street]: Doing Something Good in partnership with City of Melbourne, are hosting a one day forum for those working toward a better food system.  We’re bringing together people and organisations from across the food industry, with health and environmental advocates, government representatives and community members to:

  1. discover socially innovative and sustainable initiatives transforming food systems in Melbourne, across Australia and around the world
  2. envision what a sustainable, resilient and fair food system for Melbourne might look like
  3. discuss what we can all do to create opportunities, enable success and accelerate change
  4. learn how we can better cooperate, collaborate and coordinate our efforts
  5. make plans for individual and collective action

The structure of the day is participatory which means anyone can speak or hold a session. The timetable will be populated in the morning. I’m currently brainstorming an idea for a session – what would you like to hear about at the conference? Or (better still) what do you think the food movement people need to hear about!

To register for the conference go here.

About Juliette

When Juliette was little, she came home from school and asked her mum in her little teary voice why the other kids at school didn’t like her. Her mum reassured her and said 'Don't worry Juliette, you're just different. That's all.' Since then, aware of her obvious difference to everyone else, Juliette is spending her time doing exactly what people wish to be doing – exactly what she wants. This blog is a celebration of taking a deep breath and just doing it. Currently Juliette can be found sipping tea and gardening somewhere in Central Victoria, Australia with her beloved and their excitable boys. She is also completing her PhD in Civic Agriculture and teaches at RMIT in Sustainable Consumption and Design Activism.
