Inaugural Distinguished Professorial Lecture

Professor Steve Wratten FRSNZ


 

Future farming, future food


Professor Steve Wratten presents an in-depth analysis of how ‘western’ agriculture can damage the prospects for our future food security and offers ideas for practical and ‘sustainable’ improvement on how we grow our food.

Two billion people do not know where their food will come from tomorrow. Current ‘western’ farming practices may not be the solution but regenerative agriculture is a promising prospect. We need to export our knowledge of sustainable farming, not commodities that have environmental damage associated with their production and use.

His lively talk will include audience interactions, videos, animations and living insects.

Distinguished Professor Steve Wratten, FRSNZ, has three professorships and three doctorates and holds a James Cook Fellowship. He is a world leader in biological control of pests and agroecology. He has studied and worked in the universities of Reading, Glasgow, London, Cambridge and Southampton, UK. He is a frequent writer of gardening columns for a range of media and is a frequent speaker at garden clubs, University of the Third Age (U3A) and Rotary, among others.
