What do climate change, social connection, and human health have in common?
“festival21 is a festival of a new kind, designed to give people the tools and ideas they need to be part of the solution for a brighter, healthier and more sustainable future”, says Daniel Briggs, Barrister and Director of the Sandro Demaio Foundation.
On 1 - 2 February 2019, festival21 will take over North Melbourne’s historic Meat Market for a dynamic, zero-waste, and free celebration of food, and the power it has to create positive impact.
The Friday evening program is co-hosted by EAT Foundation, the Lancet and the Sandro Demaio Foundation, who will launch an unprecedented report that determines what a mid-century population of 10 billion must eat in order to achieve health for all, and the planet.
The Saturday program is an all-day event that will feature a series of talks, films and workshops, designed to compel visitors to consider their relationship with food, the effect it has on the future of community, climate change and population health. The program is designed to educate, inspire, and equip attendees to make practical, positive changes in how and what they eat (full line-up here).
Locally and sustainably sourced food will be served by social enterprises Free to Feed and The Social Food Project, with coffee by STREAT and a pop-up wine bar hosted by urban winery Noisy Ritual.
festival21 is free event, featuring ticketed and non-ticketed sessions. Seats for ticketed sessions must be booked in advance via www.festival21.com.au.
