Food Sovereignty with Roxanne Ngarulya Highfold

April 19 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

The food sovereignty movement supports local control of resources, and using and sharing these resources in socially and environmentally sustainable ways. Join keen environmentalist Roxanne Ngarulya Highfold in this bold discussion which challenges inequalities of power in the food system.

A mother of one, Roxanne Ngarulya Highfold has maternal ties with Central and Eastern Arrernte, and paternal ties with the Wirangu and Nurrunga peoples of South Australia. Roxanne is an experienced Aboriginal health researcher with a demonstrated history of working in the early childhood, child protection and primary healthcare industry. Roxanne works for the Central Land Council, supporting the economic growth and development of Aboriginal Prescribed Body Corporates (PBCs). She is also a keen environmentalist, with a specific focus on climate change and sustainability in the communities of Central Australia, and believes food sovereignty is critical to raising awareness and rethinking how communities are set up.
