Grab a drink, play a game, discuss funding of services for your community, and examine your social motives.
How much will you give to the public good? How will you react to the generosity of others? Play games over a drink: choose a service for your ‘local community’. How much will your imaginary donation be? Learn how scientists study our social motives.
General Discussion: What Does The Big Society Mean To You?
John Lazarus, Gilbert Roberts and Gillian Pepper from the Centre for Behaviour and Evolution at Newcastle University will be introducing the games, explaining the science behind them, and discussing what they tell us about human nature.
