Nexus Network thinkpiece applications

By Bridget Elliott on 5th August 2014
Found in: Research and Resources

Successful applications to the Nexus Network thinkpiece call of June 2014 have now been announced. Thirteen applications were chosen from over a hundred high quality applications from academics, policy and business organisations, both in the UK and from around the world. The selected thinkpieces will tackle issues from the governance of the nexus; energy, food and water security in West Africa; impact investing; fast-moving circular goods; citizen science and imagining a sewerless society.

A new guidance document has been released, which for the first time, brings together in one place examples of planning policies around the UK that support community food growing. Published by Sustain, the alliance for better food and farming, the report sets the planning context in the four nations, and provides the background to community food growing. The bulk of the report is structured around the different issues that food growing helps to address, from sustainability to residential amenity via health and wellbeing, green infrastructure, regeneration and many other agendas.
