Thanks again to all the marvelous people who attended and participated in the recent Sustainable Cities Round Table on the topic of “sustainable food systems” held on the 28 May! It was a jam-packed, interesting and very enjoyable evening with a variety of fascinating speakers with the additional features of musician Dave Newington and the students’ exhibition from the “Meals in Metropolis” class at RMIT University. Thanks also to our filmmaker Ryan Spanger from Dream Engine Digital Film Production for his brilliant capturing of the events AND to the sustainable wine provided by Elgo Estate. And of course, a very big thank you to our sponsors, VicUrban, who also presented at the event. All the video clips of the presentations can now be viewed for FREE online at http://www.sustainablemelbourne.com/category/sustainable-cities-round-table/.
