April 21, 2020 from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm

As the 50th anniversary of Earth Day approaches, now more than ever, we need to recognize that our connections – to our planet and to one another – can have deep-rooted and long lasting effects on our lives and our collective future.

On April 21st, we invite you to join us for a virtual gathering featuring live streamed conversations with researchers, educators and solutionaries about our planet’s most pressing environmental and global challenges.

Featuring Paul Stamets, Louie Schwartzberg, Suzanne Simard, Jason Silva and many more special guests, the panel discussions will run throughout Fungi Day and be available to watch for free on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.

Discover the magic that unites us by watching the film today.
