Foodies Against Famine Speaker Event
RESULTS Canberra, in association with Anti-Poverty Week presents a night of simple food and fascinating conversation.
Even if we are aware of the poor, the situations are generally so overwhelming, longstanding or completely beyond our control. Right?
Actually, that’s not necessarily the case and RESULTS Canberra would like to invite you to hear about what has been achieved through effective aid and invite you to take action to end extreme poverty.
Just recently, our actions have contributed to a further $30 million of humanitarian assistance being released to the people of Yemen and East Africa and will save lives.
RESULTS Canberra wishes to invite the community to join us for an awesome night of Soup and Speakers as we discuss humanitarian relief and aid and dispel some of the myths.
The speakers for the evening include Sally Moyle, CEO Care Australia, and Tim Watkins from Australian Council for International Development. The evening will include a panel discussion including questions from the audience.
Tickets are only $15 ($10 concession) and go towards covering the cost of the night, and the important work RESULTS does in raising awareness and a commitment to action on ending extreme poverty worldwide by 2030 in accordance with the Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the United Nations.
Details of the event are:
Date & Time: Friday 20th October 2017, 5.30pm for soup with a 6pm start
Venue: Acton Theatre, Crawford School of Public Policy, ANU, 132 Lennox Crossing, Acton, ACT, 2601
