Dr Anika Molesworth has made her mark as a young, female farmer tackling the world’s biggest challenges. Anika is smashing the status-quo and inspiring thousands through engaging and empowering conversations and actions. Working for the past six years on Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research projects, Anika has developed expertise in Southeast Asian farming systems with some of the world’s poorest farmers. She translates this academic knowledge into easily understandable and relatable messages that enthuse and empower urban audiences.
In her keynote address, Anika will be talking to our session theme of “Empowering action: working together for transformational change”. She will draw on her experiences in ‘empowering action’ in the farming sector in relation to the impact of climate change on our farms.
