About this event

The European Union Delegation to Aotearoa New Zealand is attending the 2021 Agriculatural Show! Join us on the eve of the event for a screening of the Biggest Little Farm and a Q&A session on sustainable farming and climate action in Aotearoa.

The Biggest Little Farm chronicles the eight-year quest of John and Molly Chester as they trade city living for 200 acres of barren farmland and a dream to harvest in harmony with nature. Through dogged perseverance and embracing the opportunity provided by nature's conflicts, the Chester’s unlock and uncover a biodiverse design for living that exists far beyond their farm, its seasons, and our wildest imagination.

Featuring breath-taking cinematography, captivating animals, and an urgent message to heed Mother Nature’s call, the Biggest Little Farm provides us all a vital blueprint for better living and a healthier planet.

When it comes to climate change, the EU firmly believes in the Māori proverb “he waka eke noa” – we're all in this boat together. The consequences of rising sea levels, extreme droughts, more unpredictable, intense storms and biodiversity loss know no borders. In the lead up to the New Zealand Agricultural Show, the European Union sees this film screening and Q&A as an exciting opportunity to learn more about sustainable farming practices and how they apply to the NZ context.

The audience will be able to ask questions and hear from New Zealanders committed to make a difference. Our panel of distinguished experts and stakeholders will soon be unveiled.
