The inaugural EnergyWaterFoodNexus (EWFN) Summit is launching this March at Florida A&M University.

The nexus approach is based on the premise that an action in one sector impacts the other. Therefore, the search for solutions must simultaneously investigate all three elements in a new science enterprise. Join leading entrepreneurs, thinkers, and influencers from around the world as we gather to spark innovation and unearth solutions for global sustainability.
