The Moveable NEXUS: Design-led Sustainable Water, Food and Energy Management within the New Boundary
In an age of climate change, cities are particularly vulnerable to pressures on their food, water and energy resources. The Moveable NEXUS: Design-led Sustainable Water, Food and Energy Management within the New Boundary aims to support the development of more resilient and sustainable resource management systems through urban design practices.
Bringing together an international and multidisciplinary team, the project will examine urban agriculture and localized energy production in six partner cities (Tokyo, Belfast, Amsterdam, Doha, Detroit and Sydney). Working with living labs based in vulnerable areas of each city, the research will support the development and implementation of innovative and practical design solutions to strengthen future food security.
