Zoom Out Mycology implements different strategies in urban sustainability, with an ultimate goal of helping to fight climate change. We understand that humans are a part of the natural environment, rather than above or in control of it, and define sustainability as living in a way that doesn’t deplete natural resources--the destruction of which leads to a disruption in ecological balance.
ZOM uses several innovative and progressive approaches to tackle climate change:
In recent years, a coalition of the leading voices in the fight against climate change--composed of scholars, scientists, business leaders, activists, and more--have gathered to form a nonprofit organization, Project Drawdown. The mission of this organization is to research, develop, and present several solutions for climate change, but what sets them apart is that they’ve created a report to describe the global carbon reduction, monetary costs and savings, and societal impacts of these solutions in quantifiable numbers and statistics. They’ve actually ranked these solutions in order of the magnitude of their effect on carbon reduction.
Zoom Out Mycology’s Environmental Awareness blog strives to explain and expose environmental topics and concerns to a wide audience. Our team consists of a diverse group of scientists, policy experts, and engineers that help describe the science behind environmental issues that you see in the news and experience in your daily life. We hope that this knowledge will help all of our readers embrace a healthy and sustainable lifestyle!
