Mike gained his BSc, MSc and PhD in Ecology from Massey University. He began lecturing there in ecology and environmental science in 2003 and has received a number of awards for this work, including the inaugural New Zealand Universities Critic and Conscience award (biennial, 2016) and was a semi-finalist for the 2018 Kiwibank New Zealander of the year.
In 2015 Mike published a book titled ‘Polluted Inheritance New Zealand’s Freshwater Crisis’. Now working at Victoria University, he has a goal of strengthening connections between science, policy and real outcomes to address the multiple environmental issues facing New Zealand.
Food is a key part of this. During the webinar Mike will summarise why and how our food system needs to change to become sustainable.
