After 18 months of preparation, COVID lockdown, closed borders and a 6-month postponement, Priority One member, Wharf42, is now just 5 weeks away from hosting the first ever 2035 Oceania Summit. It’s the Oceania region’s only climate-focused Agri-Food-Tech event.
Major in-bound delegations from Australia, the Pacific Islands, the United States & Europe are heading to the Aotea Centre in Auckland on 10-11 October. Government Ministers from New Zealand and the Pacific Islands will be joined by California’s Department of Food and Agriculture Secretary, Karen Ross. The two-day programme includes presentations and conversations with over 45 local and global experts. And all the while, renowned New Zealand chef, Peter Gordon, is curating the two-day menu of exceptional fare for the Summit’s all-inclusive ‘Festival of Food’.
The Summit has been designed to attract major agribusinesses, farmers, growers, agritech companies, researchers, policy-makers and regulators. The purpose is to discuss how technology can assist farmers and growers reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to a rapidly changing environment. For the Bay of Plenty, climate change and more extreme weather events will have a significant impact on our horticultural and livestock industries over the coming years. By sharing information and networking with key stakeholders around the world, October’s Summit will provide a platform for delegates from the Bay to network, meet and learn.
