Give a talk in a school
Would you like to sign up to give a fungus talk in one of your local schools? With the current Covid-19 pandemic situation, UKFD 2020 will not most likely not have any interaction with schools. If however you are interested in giving a fungus based talk for UKFD 2021, then you have plenty of time to bring all the elements, written and visual, together. This could be aimed at either a secondary school or a Primary School.

Ordinarily, many fungal biologists organisie talks and demonstrations as part of UK Fungus Day. In 2020, due to the current Covid-19 situation, these sorts of events will not take place. It is hoped that we can reinstate these in 2021, with support from our academic colleagues.
There were however a number of exciting Online Events that people enjoyed.
Video presentations from some of these, where available, will be uploaded to the UKFD website under various sections, depending on their theme. Check out the different categories starting with this page and the video presentations below and then onto https://www.ukfungusday.co.uk/join/enthusiasts
