How can the circular economy be put into practice in a local context, starting from the existing local skills? Funghi Lab is an exploratory process of designing, prototyping and testing a system to produce, distribute and market mushrooms from waste (resources) in Genk. In several cities the potential of growing food based on organic waste material has already been explored. Some of these possibilities are now concretely experimented with and tested in Genk. During this experiment, existing tools and techniques will be used and brought together in a new system adapted to the context of Genk, facilitated in a series of labs with local partners.
