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 possible contributions micro-algae and macro-algae (seaweeds) are making, and could make, to Australia’s future.

Greens Senator Janet Rice hosted and participated in the roundtable, and supported the launch of the roundtable report, Opportunities for an expanded algal industry in Australia, in August 2017.
