Mushrooms Can Save the World

As part of our Solutions Agenda research project, we are leading an upcoming real time virtual dialogue on waste management in Canada, one of our nine themes. In the interim, this video is fascinating about how mushrooms could play a major role, cleaning polluted soils, as well as making insecticides, treating smallpox and even treating viruses. There is so much to learn from natural systems, from networking, to mutualism where the waste of one becomes the life of another. And nature produces no waste, so it is possible to design a virtually no waste human system now.
