Evolving the Future: An exploration of how evolutionary thinking can inform public policy

Organised by the Centre on the Human Aspects of Science and Technology & the Sydney Centre for the Foundations of Science, University of Sydney

Evolution is an essential theory for understanding the living
world-including our own species. With understanding comes the capacity for improvement. This workshop examines three fields in which the understanding offered by contemporary evolutionary theory may offerpractical guidance: conservation, public health, and the urban environment.

The workshop will be led by evolutionary biologist Prof. David Sloan
Wilson, SUNY Distinguished Professor of Biology and Anthropology at Binghamton University. Prof. Wilson's recent books include: Darwin's Cathedral: Evolution, Religion, and the Nature of Society and Evolution for Everyone: How Darwin's Theory Can Change the Way We Think About Our Lives

Attendance at the workshop is limited to 50, to ensure that all
participants are able to participate in a meaningful way in our
discussions.
