The Event

As part of Global Goals Week, the Skoll Foundation and the United Nations Foundation are pleased to present We the Future: Accelerating Sustainable Development Solutions on September 21, 2017 at TED Theater in New York.
The Sustainable Development Goals, created in partnership with individuals around the world and adopted by world leaders at the United Nations, present a bold vision for the future: a world without poverty or hunger, in which all people have access to healthcare, education and economic opportunity, and where thriving ecosystems are protected. The 17 goals are integrated and interdependent, spanning economic, social, and environmental imperatives.
Incremental change will not manifest this new world by 2030. Such a shift requires deep, systemic change. As global leaders gather for the 72nd Session of the UN General Assembly in September, this is the moment to come together to share models that are transforming the way we approach the goals and equipping local and global leaders across sectors to accelerate achievement of the SDGs.




Together with innovators from around the globe, we will showcase and discuss bold models of systemic change that have been proven and applied on a local, regional, and global scale. A curated audience of social entrepreneurs, corporate pioneers, government innovators, artistic geniuses, and others will explore how we can learn from, strengthen, and scale the approaches that are working to create a world of sustainable peace and prosperity.

Mushrooms are the fruits of the mycelium fungus, and the spores formed by the mushrooms are a kind of seed. Commercial mushroom production requires high levels of management input and skill. Jars and growth media can be boiled for at least an hour to sterilize them and the work environment can be cleaned with a 70 percent solution of ethanol to remove contaminants. The starter or mother culture can be formed from a fresh and healthy fruiting body or obtained from a spawn producer or laboratory. The environmental conditions necessary for successful spawn-run are; Well, you should be aware of mushroom spawning methods for better mushroom farming. Grain spawn is used for commercial indoor mushroom growing. These slants are then incubated at 25°C ± 2°C for 2 weeks to get pure culture. Top layer spawning – In this case, the spawn is planted just on the surface after filling the container with compost up to the brim and then a thin layer of compost is spread out over the spawn. However, this does not necessarily mean that they are producing their own inoculated spawn. Shift the inoculated bottles to spawn running room having a temperature range of 25 to 30°c.

Jars must be kept in the dark at room temperature for 10 to 20 days until the mycelium has completely penetrated the millet seeds. This is layered in the bag grain, vermiculite, and finally water. Spawn taken directly from the growing room or fresh spawn grows faster than the spawn kept stored at 2°C.
