On Friday the 28th of July, Sydney Health Law is hosting Engaging with Advocates, along with the Food Governance Node and the Healthy Food Systems Node at the Charles Perkins Centre.
This event aims to connect early career researchers with leading civil society advocates in order to foster collaboration and increase the impact of research. Representatives of organizations working on the sustainability of food systems, promoting healthier diets, and championing consumer rights will share personal experiences of using research in their efforts to improve policy, and offer insights for academics looking to strengthen the practical relevance of their research.
This event will feature keynote presentations by:
- The Live Lighter Campaign (Heart Foundation Western Australia); and
- Sustain: The Australian Food Network
The keynote presentations will be followed by a session where participants workshop “live” policy issues, and the event will conclude with networking drinks.
While the event is targeted at early-career researchers, academics at every level are welcome to attend, as are members of civil society and government organisations, and others who are interested. Further information can be found at this link.
We hope to see you there!
