Keynote Speakers

We are delighted to announce we have secured a number of well-known and engaging speakers:

Emily King

For three years, leading scientists worked on Food in the Anthropocene: the EAT-Lancet Commission on healthy diets from sustainable food system. We are delighted to have Emily King join us on the Dietitians NZ Sustainability Roadshow, who will present the key findings of the report, in particular:

  • Why is this report special?
  • What does this mean for Aotearoa, New Zealand?
  • What does this mean for food businesses and consumers?

Emily has more than a decade’s experience working in and researching food systems. It’s a journey that’s taken her from investigating seed practices in Cuba to running a climate change adaptation forum focusing on resilient urban food in Germany, on trains across Canada and a bike tour of the US, hunting out ways to change the food system.

Having trained and practiced as an environmental lawyer, Emily then focused on food as a solution to environmental challenges. She was named one of Food Tank’s top 20 global food leaders under 40 for her work restoring New Zealand’s food system, has judged the Outstanding New Zealand Food Producer awards sustainability category for the past 3 years, helped set up The Kitchen Project..and she is just getting started.
