Making Australian Agriculture Sustainable: 2022 Fenner Conference

17 March 2022 @ 9:00 am - 18 March 2022 @ 5:00 pm




This event has now passed.   However,  video recordings from the conference are now available.  These can be watched from the Fenner 2022 website (link here) or the Fenner 2022 YouTube channel (link here). You may also be interested in our retrospective of the conference at our website here.

Australian agriculture today is largely unsustainable. Soils are degrading and are in need of regeneration and broad acre farming is delivering food in quantity but not always in quality. An exceptional group of speakers address the question: Can we feed ourselves and not destroy the Earth?

Sustainable Population Australia is proud to be sponsoring the upcoming Fenner conference alongside the ‘Dick and Pip Smith Foundation’,  the ‘Australian Academy of Science’,  ‘Regenerate Earth’  and the ACT government.

Top speakers at the conference include Charles Massey,  Julian Cribb,  Ian Dunlop and Robyn Alders.  John Hewson will open the conference and SPA patron Ian Lowe will conclude.


After being deferred due to COVID,  we believe this hugely important and informative conference will be worth the wait.  It will be held at  Shine Dome, ANU, Canberra on the 17th and 18th of March 2022 , 9am to 5pm both days.  The conferences can be attended both in person ($200/$150)  or online ($40 per day).

We look forward to seeing you there.
