Dresden Nexus Conference 2020

The Dresden Nexus Conference (DNC) is an international conference series dedicated to advancing research and the implementation of a Nexus Approach to resource management. By bringing together actors from a diverse range of disciplines and sectors, DNC fosters dialogue on how nexus thinking contributes to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The third Dresden Nexus Conference (DNC2020) will take place 3–5 June 2020 under the theme “Circular Economy in a Sustainable Society”. Dresden is one of Germany's most dynamic cities; the capital of Saxony is known for its indomitably pioneering approach, advancements in high technology, and strong research landscape.

DNC2020 aims to accelerate the transition to a more sustainable economy by focusing on identifying and discussing the concepts that nexus thinking offers to support the transition towards a circular economy. A Nexus Approach shares many synergies with the concept of a circular economy - a system that eliminates waste, keeps resources in use, and contributes to regenerating natural systems. Read more here.

DNC is a one-of-a-kind event, bringing together actors from academia, civil society, industry, and government from all over the world to discuss the sustainable management of environmental resources in Dresden.

Providing a platform for exchange on this topic is crucial to ensure the findings and good initiatives from the scientific community are communicated to the right actors for implementation – political decision makers as well as local stakeholders and representatives of the business community. DNC provides the scientific community opportunities to inform their initiatives through dialogue about the needs and challenges of political decision makers as well as local stakeholders and representatives of the business community. Across the scientific community itself, this platform is important because the discussion around the Nexus Approach must be inter- and transdisciplinary, involving, for example, the social sciences as well as practitioners.
