Food System Horizons

CSIRO has joined forces with The University of Queensland to start a national conversation on looking at transforming our food systems for the future.

The Food System Horizons initiative between CSIRO and The University of Queensland will bring together a range of stakeholders to build a Think Tank that drives evidence-based dialogues to identify pathways for the future of Australia's food systems.

Building on the momentum of the UN Food Summit national dialogues in 2021, the Food System Horizons initiative will build capacity in Australia to navigate, manage and direct transformational processes aligned to the nation's priorities and ambitions.
