Climate change will be on the menu at next week’s Cooking for a Better Future at The Connection in Shepparton.
The actual menu will be prepared and cooked by students from The Foyer in Shepparton with help from other students at Shepparton’s Wanganui Park Secondary College.
The discussion about climate change and its likely impact on food will be led by University of Melbourne’s Professor David Karoly.
Prof Karoly, from the university’s School of Earth Sciences, is known internationally for his expertise and understanding of climate change and in 2007 was heavily involved with the preparation of the fourth assessment of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
Next Friday’s event will be the third Cooking for a Better Future dinner, which is a Big Ideas project inspired by the Shepparton-based Slap Tomorrow environmental group with the support of the city’s Lighthouse Project, Bendigo Bank and secondary schools from Shepparton and Mooroopna.
Tickets for the dinner cost $48, plus a small booking fee, and can be secured from https://sheppartontickets.com.au/event/5596
The dinner is on Friday, November 10, from 6.30pm.
Bookings close on Monday.
