Community Fungi Events
Aegean Atelier is a platform of interdisciplinary liberal arts teaching and learning based on local crops of Anatolia. The recent project (Mahalle Mantarı) focuses on mushrooms and truffles of the Ömerli-Şile region. A fundamental aspect of this interdisciplinary research group is sustainability, the interrelationship among the assemblage of humans, animals and plants. In tune with the priorities of Özyegin University regarding environmental issues, sustainability and outreach to local communities, the NGO organized the first two events of the project Mahalle Mantarı where İklil Selçuk from the Faculty of Social Sciences and Özge Samancı from the Faculty of Applied Sciences were the co-facilitators.
