The DP geographers have been exploring the idea of ‘the nexus’. The approach outlines that when we discuss the issues of water, food and energy they can not be looked at individually. Any solution to solve a problem is complex and it often involves numerous factors. To help the students gain an understanding of the complexity of nexus thinking the students were given a series of hexagons which had a number of statements on them. The group were divided into teams to sort the hexagons into categories that made sense to them and were then asked to tesselate them. Any hexagon that touched another had to relate to it. Below are photos of the students at work.
