COURAGE with Dr Anika Molesworth

COURAGE with Dr Anika Molesworth

If there was one thing you think society should talk more about, what would it be?

“Courage. We are facing large scale, global issues and we often shy away from them thinking we can ‘sit this out’. But I believe we live in such a highly connected web and every choice we make has a flow-on effect. So we need courage to step up and take action.”


Dr Anika Molesworth is smashing the status-quo and inspiring change for a better future.


As a young, female farmer tackling the world’s biggest challenges, Anika is inspiring thousands through engaging and empowering conversations. Her infectious optimism is shifting mindsets and behaviours, leaving audiences motivated and empowered to act.


Anika is a thought-leader of agro-ecological systems resilience and has a PhD in international agricultural development. With a passion for rural communities and healthy ecosystems, she is committed to help create sustainable and vibrant rural landscapes now and for the future. She is a Founding Director of Farmers for Climate Action – a national network of nearly 8,000 Australian farmers undertaking climate change action. 


Anika has presented the TEDx talks “Farmers are key to a better future” and “Repairing the Broken Food System.” She is the author of her book, Our Sunburnt Country, which won the Royal Societies of Australia and New Zealand Writer’s Award for Outstanding Writing on Social Change. After being named the 2015 Young Farmer of the Year, Anika went on to be awarded the 2017 Young Australian of the Year NSW Finalist, and 2017 NSW Young Achiever Award for Environment and Sustainability. In 2022, she was named Young Conservationist of the Year. 


This is one incredibly smart, caring and impactful individuals and I’ve been really looking forward to sitting down with her.
