Environment Matters – Food and farming

The untapped opportunity to fight climate change and biodiversity loss

Did you know that the current food system accounts for 34% of carbon emissions worldwide and, in turn, is one of the leading causes of climate change?

Join the Conservation Council of WA and Wide Open Agriculture for our first Environment Matters of 2022 – where we’ll be digging deeper into the important role food production can play in tackling climate change.

Ever wanted to learn more about regenerative agriculture in Australia? Interested in the topics of carbon sequestration, soil health and biodiversity, and restoring local ecosystems? Then this event is for you!

We’ll be hearing direct from our partner organisation, ASX listed Wide Open Agriculture (WOA), who are Australia’s leading regenerative food and agriculture company and owner of consumer brand Dirty Clean Food, along with a panel of leading industry experts and local farmers – this is a conversation not to be missed.

Our guest speakers will include:

  • Ben Cole – Wide Open Agriculture
  • Shay Crouch – Perth NRM
  • Simon Wallwork – Corrigin Farmer and AgZero2030 Chair and Cofounder
  • and more!

This is a free event and we’d love you to break bread with us after the presentations – literally! Light refreshments will be provided with catering by the one and only North Street Store.

This is a COVID-Safe event following the latest health advice.

Can’t attend in person? We can send you a copy of the recording – just send an email to [email protected] to be added to the distribution list.

Our event forms part of Perth NRM’s Week of Action in the leadup to the UN International Day for Biodiversity. Find out more about how you can be part of the week here

We respectfully acknowledge that we will be meeting on unceded Whadjuk Noongar country, and pay our deepest respects to traditional custodians and their Elders past and present. We wish to acknowledge the enduring culture and connection of First Nations people to country here in WA, and as the first agriculturalists of this land. It is a privilege to be sustained by the same country they have cared for since time immemorial.
