Food futures Conference

Abstracts and conference registrations are invited for the PHAA conference, Food Futures: An Australian Approach, 20-21 April 2010 in Canberra.

Concerns about the relationship between food and the food system, nutrition, and population health are part of the motivation for the Public Health Association of Australia (PHAA) to facilitate a national conference seeking an overarching approach to food policy that looks well into the future. Although health may be the driver for the PHAA, any such national policy or approach must also take into account issues such as agriculture, scientific research, production and manufacture, environment, retail and community concerns, to appropriately encompass all aspects of food.

Abstract submission closes October 5

Conference themes include:

• Food and health • Economics and equity • Food safety and regulation • Food security – within Australia and Australia’s role internationally • Communicating the food message, including food labelling and food literacy • Regional sustainability, biodiversity & agriculture • The impacts of environment and climate change on food policy in Australia • Food manufacture, small business and trade • Other issues impacting on approaches to food policy
