On 11 November 2016, Australia21 held a roundtable on the potential role of algal farming in contributing to solutions to a range of issues facing Australia including food security, fuel security and water degradation.

A diverse group of scientists, entrepreneurs, government policymakers and futurists met in Parliament House, Canberra to examine the current state of activities, expectations and possibilities that micro-algae and macro-algae (seaweeds) are making and could make to Australia’s future.
