Although each of the 17 Global Goals has its specific targets, achieving any single SDG is inherently interlinked with the success of other SDGs.  The sustainable management of, for example, water (SDG 6: Clean water and sanitation), is interconnected with food security (SDG 2: Zero hunger), and energy (SDG 7: Affordable and clean energy).  Achieving the SDGs requires a Nexus Approach. Taking into account the interdependencies and interrelatedness of environmental resources,  the United Nations University Institute for Integrated Management of Material Fluxes and of Resources (UNU-FLORES)  develops strategies via the Neuxs Approach for achieving the SDGs that are efficient and cost-effective.  In commemoration of the third anniversary of the SDGs, UNU-FLORES is organising a two-part exhibition to #Act4SDGs at the Dresden Central train station (Dresden Hauptbahnhof). From 24 September to 4 October, we will draw attention to the importance of the Nexus Approach for the SDGs with an SDG Exhibition and the Nexus Approach Exhibition. The exhibitions will be free and open to the public,  introducing the local community to the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and a new perspective on environmental resources management. At the SDG Exhibition, visitors get to navigate through and learn more about the 17 Global Goals agreed upon by United Nations Member States for working towards a sustainable future. The goals relate to the world’s current critical challenges such as poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. The Nexus Approach Exhibition presents an overview of an integrated approach to environmental resources management as advocated at UNU-FLORES. The Nexus Approach can help boost our efforts to achieve the SDGs by enhancing our understanding of the sophisticated and complex linkages in the natural world and by encouraging us to take all these interconnections into consideration in our projects.
