I love Mycelium Youth Network because we get to freedom dream a future that works for all of us. Too often, our system pushes us to accept the status quo and at Mycelium we consistently dream big and think outside of the box for some of the most pressing challenges of our current climate crisis. My role in the zombie apocalypse would be as a knowledge gatherer who can also shoot a bow and arrow.

I am most excited to work with Mycelium because I get to be part of building more love for Pachamama. I love watching youth get their hands dirty in soil, going on nature walks, growing food and reconnecting with mother earth. My role in the zombie apocalypse would be the gatherer - I would gather food, people, and resources and make a safe space for those left.

I love working with Mycelium Youth Network because of the emphasis on youth agency and voice within our work. Rather than placing a burden on youth to fix the issues of older generations, Mycelium focuses on using our power to share the right platforms with youth in order for them to build out their desired solutions. My role in the zombie apocalypse would be a youth educator, or a weaver of information and news sharing.

I love working for the Mycelium Youth Network because we make preparing for climate change a fun and engaging process, focusing on our joy rather than doomsday scenarios. My role in the zombie apocalypse would be to forage food and medicine for my surviving community. I'm tired of seeing zombie parties in the forest starving when there are so many things you can eat in the forest!

I am excited to work with Mycelium Youth Network because we are approaching climate change readiness through youth engagement and leadership. I also enjoy teaching about gardening, reconnecting with traditional ancestral knowledge, and climate change science. My role in the zombie apocalypse would be fruit and veggie gardener for building community and self-sufficiency.

I am excited to work at Mycelium Youth Network because of the wide range of knowledge both the educators and students possess. Learning is a generative and intergenerational process, and MYN's focus on community wellness and connection fosters that process. My role in the zombie apocalypse would be as a forager - abandoned Walmarts and forest floor alike!

I love working with Mycelium Youth Network because I'm supporting an organization that focuses on teaching youth the importance of preparing for climate change and the impact that we each can make as individuals.  We will continue to work united to take care of our beautiful planet and make a difference for the generations to come.
