Cultural Evolution for Good: Applications and impact of cultural evolution research and methods

Research with an impact?

“Cultural Evolution for Good: Applications and impact of cultural evolution research and methods” is a pre-CES satellite meeting planned by the ESLR Society. The meeting will focus on ways of applying cultural evolution research and methods, communicating scientific findings more effectively, and engaging with different stakeholders and organisations.
