Past RED Talks

Rural Economic Development Talks, better known as RED Talks, provide a unique combination of political and macroeconomic overviews, industry insight and sustainable business advice. Their heavy-hitting speakers and active audience involvement make for debates tailored to the needs of the rural economy and allied industries. 

Positive and action-oriented in outlook, the talks bring together a community of parliamentary policymakers, industry change-makers, big thinkers and business leaders who share a vision for a greener and more just economy.

RED Talks put rural first in addressing the big issues of the day and leading the way to a climate-friendly economy. All our previous Talks can be viewed here.
