  • Take 2 minutes to see how agriculture plays a role in the United Nation’s goals.

    This video shows the role of agriculture in the Sustainable Development Goals. Most of us can easily understand how growing more food for an increasing population is vital for food security and sustainability, however some of the other benefits are less obvious. This video shows how improved agriculture, particularly for small holder farmers, can cause a ripple effect leading to change in the other areas, such as gender equality and economic growth.

    Please feel free to distribute and help spread the word about the SDGs and how we can achieve them together!

  • Nutrien is a leader in an environmental education program called, Caring for our Watersheds (CFW). CFW asks youth to submit an essay proposal that answers the question, “What can you do to improve your watershed?” Students research their local watershed, identify an environmental concern and come up with a realistic solution. Cash rewards are given to participating schools, clubs and students. The success of the program is attributed to turning the student’s ideas into action. Community partners from around the world have joined together to mentor, inspire and guide students. Nutrien offers implementation funding and has contributed to over 275 projects to date.
