The Environment Nexus: WATER, ENERGY, FOOD

"Nexus thinking is a new way of thinking that recognises the crucial interdependence of water, energy and food – a relationship that forms the core of the Environment Nexus project. This new IIEA video explores the deep interconnections between the three essential resources and highlights the need for nexus thinking to help meet the world's needs, as it grows from 7 to 9 billion by 2050."

(The Institute of International and European Affairs, 20 February 2013)

Tony Schwartz: The Myths of the Overworked Creative

"The only reserves that last are those we renew. This applies to us personally and ecologically.

Time is finite, but we act as if it were otherwise, assuming that longer hours always lead to increased productivity. But in reality our bodies are designed to pulse and pause – to expend energy and then renew it.

This is a long presentation, but it has many great insights – including the reminder that we are most effective, efficient and creative when we give absorbed attention to one thing at a time. Renewing and cultivating our personal energy is a key criteria for working at our full potential in the 21st century..."

The World of 100: Our Global Village

"If the world were a village of 100 people, what would its composition be? This set of 20 posters is built on statistics about the spread of population around the world under various classifications. The numbers are turned into graphics to give another sense a touch – Look, this is the world we are living in."

(Toby Ng, 2009)

UK National Statistics Publication Hub

"The Publication Hub remains the first port of call for all those seeking the latest statistics from government departments in the UK. It is the central website for hosting all first releases of National Statistics.

The term 'National Statistics' is an accreditation kitemark which stands for a range of qualities such as relevance, integrity, quality, accessibility, value for money and freedom from political influence. Data classed as National Statistics provide an up–to–date, comprehensive and meaningful description of the UK's economy and society.

The Publication Hub delivers updates and provides statistical news releases for all new National Statistics. You can access these when they are available directly from this website or by subscribing to the RSS news feed.

The Publication Hub also provides links to statistical products and publications that are not classed as National Statistics. It is the only website where you can access past and present statistical releases. In addition, you can find information about when future statistical releases are going to be available.

All statistical releases will continue to be held on departmental websites, along with underlying sources and datasets. As the producers of these statistics, the departments are responsible for their content and accuracy. Further contact details are provided with each statistical release."

Transition Towns in Aotearoa New Zealand

"Transition Towns initiatives are part of a vibrant, international grassroots movement that brings people together to explore how we–as communities – can respond to the environmental, economic and social challenges arising from climate change, resource depletion and an economy based on growth. We don't look for anyone to blame or anyone to save us, but believe our communities have within themselves the innovation and ingenuity to create positive solutions to the converging crises of our time. We believe in igniting and supporting local responses at any level and from anyone–and aim to weave them together into a coordinated action plan for change towards a lower energy lifestyle. By building local resilience, we will be able to collectively respond to whatever the future may bring in a calm, positive and creative way. And by remembering how to live within our local means, we can rediscover the spirit of community and a feeling of power, belonging and sharing in a world that is vibrant, just and truly sustainable."
