Hi Everyone

With U4 approaching, I thought I would remind you of something important I learned at the HEV conference in 2019 in regards to U4 AOS 1 KK “Key issues of the challenge of adequately feeding a rising world population, with particular focus on proposed solutions to global food insecurity, including the potential contribution of technologies and improved equity of food access and distribution.”

Feedback I received from the session was that this KK is about Australia ONLY, despite the corresponding outcome statement and key skill both mentioning the word GLOBAL there should be no mention of countries besides Australia in relevant SAC work – this was of great surprise to me!

I emailed the curriculum manager to clarify this and she confirmed “That is correct – Australia’s food system is part of the global food system, but the focus of the unit is on Australia.”
