Tasmania: Our Place, Our Future


In 2015, the University of Tasmania celebrates its 125th Anniversary. As part of celebration, the University has joined with The Mercury newspaper to look at the issues at the heart of Tasmania's future, culminating in public forums with local and national experts.

The second of these public forums will focus on Agriculture and Aquaculture and the future of these industries in Tasmania. Speakers will particularly reflect on their personal journeys.
