Creating & Nurturing AwF for Growth
Category : Updates
Aquaculture without Frontiers is pleased to announce its program for World Aquaculture Adelaide 2014 (WAA14) which will be taking place at the new Adelaide Convention Centre between 7 & 11 June 2014.
A Silent Auction will be held during the period of the WAA14 Trade Show and that will be our main focus for promotion and fund raising during the event. AwF volunteers will be encouraging people and companies to bid on a range of products, services and vouchers which will be detailed just prior to the event.
The session, Development, Welfare and Poverty Alleviation (AwF), has been sponsored by World Aquaculture Society (WAS) Premier Sponsor, Tyson Foods Inc., one of the world’s largest food suppliers as well as a leader in hunger and disaster relief. It will be held on Wednesday 11 June from 11.10am in Room 6 and will conclude with a meeting session before the ‘Goodbye Adelaide’ event at 5.30pm.
The session has speakers from Nigeria, India, Brazil, Seychelles, USA, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Australia and promises to cover a myriad of issues and case studies across the continents.
Of course Brazil is very much in the spotlight this month so it good to see that we will have four presentations covering small scale fish farming, the development of producers co-ops, production of Native Oysters and an overview of aquatic solutions to hunger and malnutrition in that country.
Solutions to poverty alleviation do not necessarily have to focus on creating food but can be about jobs, livelihoods and hope and the Indian presentations will take us down this path.
All together it should be a fascinating session, as AwF sessions tend to be, highlighting how many good people there are trying to solve these monumental problems. AwF Executive Director, Roy Palmer, will conclude the program by updating people with the latest information on AwF, including the promotion of the new Corporate Social Responsibility platform, and will invite people to stay to have a general meeting where we discuss the future directions of AwF.
Everyone is invited to come along and be absorbed by the goodwill, listen to the amazing stories of aquaculture activities which are making a difference in the world, and then share their ideas and concepts before we all make our way to the final event at WAA14.
