Love Science? Love Food? Join Inspiring Queensland for an event at the intersection
To launch this year’s National Science Week in Queensland, Inspiring Queensland is inviting you to a delectable evening that will not only feed your brain but fill your stomach too! “Our panel of scientists will discuss how cutting-edge science is creating the food of the future. The line-up promises to be as enlightening as it is fun.
“Hosted by ABC-TV’s Landline’s Pip Courtney, we kick off with a conversation starter by the Queensland Chief Scientist, Professor Hugh Possingham. We will then be treated to a punchy panel session with some of the bright minds dedicated to creating the foods of tomorrow –with technologies all the way through the value chain – from the paddock to the palate. There will also be food-related stands where you can talk to people about the latest and emerging technologies in the field before and after the panel discussion. “
Desert Channels Queensland and the Australian Rangelands Society are hosting the NRM in the Rangelands Conference – Shaping our Future, 2021. The Rangelands cover about 80% of the Australian interior, spanning 3100 km east to west and 1400 km north to south. This vast region contains varied landscapes, including savannas, woodlands, shrub lands grasslands and wetlands. Water supply is often sporadic with many river systems draining into internal lakes, in particular Lake Eyre.
Over the past seven years drought has affected much of the rangelands and the focus has turned to improving future resilience of the environment, the communities and industry. The conference will showcase and share emerging ideas and innovations so we can collectively contribute to improving the condition of the rangelands.

Science events generally
The Queensland Government’s innovation initiative Advance Queensland aims to foster innovation to help build a strong and diverse Queensland economy. It runs an Advance Queensland events calendar for activities on that theme.
The Brisbane Dialogues has launched an aggregated calendar of “intelligent talks and discussion events” with the aim of helping many other event organisers promote their public events – Queensland Talks.
