Join the Canberra pre-2035 Oceania Summit Workshop - 27 April

As part of our 2035 Oceania Summit planning, we are delighted to announce the programme for the first pre-Summit workshop. It will take place in Canberra, ACT on Wednesday 27 April 2022. The event will be hosted at the China in the World Building, Australian National University.

This workshop has been made possible through the assistance and support of our two ACT partners, the Centre for Entrepreneurial Agri-Technology & the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research 

The purpose of the pre-Summit workshop is to enable participants to share how research they do, or support, is helping reduce the carbon footprint of the agrifood production sector. Our hope is that this workshop will help identify topics that could be further explored at the 2035 Oceania Summit in October 2022, and to help forge new links among industry, research and government stakeholders in the ACT. 

You can register here for a complimentary ticket to the event.
