The planet is warming, the oceans are warming, and the climate systems are altering. With our environment changing, how will this affect our food supply? Water supplies will dwindle in our state, can we still grow our crops? How will our fisheries be affected? Does this mean the era of cheap food is coming to an end? How will this affect society if our food supply is altered. Agriculture now needs to develop strategies for climate change to maintain our food supply. Find out at “Science in the Pub” about the effects of climate change on our food production.
Please join us on Friday 4th October at the Rob Roy Hotel (106 Halifax Street in the city). This event kicks off at 6:00 pm and will finish by approx. 7:30 pm (doors will be open from 5:30 pm for those who wish to arrive early for seat). The principal goal of SciPub is to make science engaging and accessible to the public. Each panel consists of three experts who deliver 10-15 minute presentations on their area and then open up to questions from the audience via a moderator. Panellists are selected primarily on their ability to effectively communicate science in an engaging and non-technical manner. SciPub is held in a pub so that scientists, aspiring scientists, and non-scientists can learn, discuss and think critically about hot topics in science.
We are pleased to announce our panellists are:
Dr Zoe Doubleday - Marine Biologist Researcher, Future Industries Institute, University of South Australia
Dr Peter Haymann - Principal Scientist, Climate Applications, South Australian Research and Development Institute
Prof Wendy Umberger - Executive Director, Centre for Global Food & Resources, University of Adelaide
Please note: Though Eventbrite issues automated tickets, we do not check or collect tickets at the venue. RSVPing does not guarantee a seat; the RSVP facility makes it easier for us to estimate numbers so that we can accommodate accordingly. Doors are open from 5:30pm and due to the popularity of some past events, we would advise patrons to arrive early to avoid any disappointment. Thank you for your support.
We hope to see you there!
