In connection with the CES Conference 2022 (taking place in Aarhus), the ERSL Society is organizing a workshop on applied cultural evolution, taking place at the IMC. The workshop is aimed at early-career researchers but is open to anyone – also if you are not participating in the CES conference. 

For details, please visit: https://www.eslrsociety.org/events/cultural-evolution-for-good-applications-and-impact-of-cultural-evolution-research-and-methods/   

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.

The meeting will feature several keynote speakers, and will incorporate plenty of time for discussion around the ideas they raise and the general theme of the meeting.
