Bondies Making a Difference in Australian Agriculture

Join us for an inspiring online panel discussion featuring six Bondies pursuing careers in the Australian agriculture industry.

Agriculture accounts for over half of Australia’s land use, making the sustainable management of this land a crucial issue for both farm businesses and the public. This session offers a unique opportunity to explore the potential of a sustainable career in a major industry that has an immediate and future impact on a global scale, right here in Australia.

Panellists will discuss the size and scale of the agriculture industry, climate change impacts and risk management, agricultural employment, sustainability and trade, and the numerous opportunities available for those looking to make a difference.
