A Sustainability Hub is one of the new features set to capture attention at Fieldays in a couple of weeks. Fieldays, the southern hemisphere’s largest agricultural event, is the ultimate launch platform for cutting-edge technology and innovation and Fieldays Society chief executive Peter Nation says they made a strategic decision to use the scale of Fieldays to educate both visitors and exhibitors so future generations will benefit from improved sustainability in food and fibre.
The new hub features a number of sustainability-focused organisations, including Toitū Envirocare, Wilderlab and RiverWatch. General manager engagement at the EPA Paula Knaap, says visitors can explore sustainable farming research and science, urban and rural waste management, as well as water management and renewable energy. The National Fieldays runs from June 14-17th at Mystery Creek in the Waikato.
