The Nexus: Food, Water and Energy

With an ever-growing global population, the challenge of ensuring food, water and energy security for all is greater than ever. The processes that help produce and deliver high-quality food, cleaner energy and safe and accessible water, are all interconnected.

By using an integrated approach to thinking, the NXplorers programme develops a strong understanding of these interdependencies and helps young people to recognise how changes made to one system can impact on one or both of the other systems.
