    • Duration 60 Minutes

    DEEP DIVE ON OUR LECTURE TOPIC:

    Find out more about how we can save the planet with mushrooms. From mycelium-based building products to whole new sources of food and alternative proteins, mushrooms are making it clear that when we collaborate with them, we have a chance for a brighter future. Join us to learn about the properties of fungi as proteins, materials, medicines, food sources, and most importantly as an agent of Myco-bioremediation in the environment.

    OUR PRESENTER:

    Alicia Dudek is the founding fungi fanatic at MycoReality, a mycelium inspired conversations firm. From learning how to grow oyster mushrooms in your own backyard, to envisioning a future where every object we produce has fungi in its lifecycle, she is keen on transforming our way of life into a true MYCOREALITY.  

    Alicia’s passion for mushrooms is a part of her heritage and upbringing, and throughout her life she has collected knowledge from a great number of teachers. She is here to share her story and synthesis of how we as humanity can collaborate more closely with fungi for our mutual benefit.
