Personal

Dr Nick Rose is the Food Systems Coordinator of Sustain: The Australian Food Network, a newly formed national 'meta-network' that aims to support and articulate an emerging policy and research agenda in Australia in the direction of sustainable, resilient and healthy food systems. This work builds on Dr Rose's five years of 'scholar activism' as the principal founder and National Coordinator of the Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance. In that capacity Dr Rose led initiatives to create Australia's first People's Food Plan, Fair Food Week and the country's first food politics documentary, Fair Food. He is the editor of an anthology entitled 'Fair Food: The Growing Revolution', which will be published by the University of Queensland Press in September 2015. He is also the recipient of a Churchill Fellowship, investigating innovative models of urban agriculture in the US Midwest, Toronto and Argentina, with a focus on initiatives and enterprises aimed at tackling critical food security issues for low-income populations; and those aimed at creating employment and livelihood opportunities for young people and new farmers. 

 
Dr Rose has recently accepted an appointment with William Angliss Institute to write the curriculum for what will be Australia's first Master of Gastronomic Food Systems. He lives in Melbourne, Australia, with his partner Julie Tucker, and their two boys, Camilo and Jude.
