Sustainable Environment: Land - Food - Water - Energy Nexus

Starts: 6 June 2022 Ends: 6 June 2022


As global populations continue to rise so too does the pressure on our rural landscapes via increased economic growth and industry, urbanisation, and a continued need to support current diets / changing diets.

Water as a finite resource is in ever increasing demand to support both the energy and food production sectors, and as such these three areas have an inextricable link, meaning the sustainable development of these requires a cohesive approach to ensure continued and efficient food security and energy production globally.

This international conference will allow participants to share and explore current research, innovation, and best practices to support our continued provision of food and energy under the current climate crisis, changing policy, and continued population growth.

Sruc Event Sustainable Environment

Areas of interest include innovations in managing and protecting water, connecting agriculture and the nexus, community resilience and sustainability at the nexus, preservation of natural resources, and waste and the nexus. A full event programme will be available in due course.

This is a hybrid event, in-person attendance will be limited to 50 people due to current social distancing regulations. Should restrictions be lifted, the attendance limit will be raised to 70.

Allocation for the in-person attendance will be on a first-come first-served basis, with a waiting list if capacity is exceeded. Please also note that there is a small fee to attend virtually, because we still need to cover the costs of room and equipment hire.

Registration and Payment Deadline is 18th May 2022
