BINGHAMTON, NY – The Binghamton Community Lab will host a mixer and discussion for anyone who is interested in increasing group performance. There is a self-pay dinner at 6:00 p.m. followed by the presentation and discussion at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 18th, at the Lost Dog Café Violet Room, 222 Water Street in Binghamton.

David Sloan Wilson is SUNY Distinguished Professor of Biology and Anthropology at Binghamton University, where he directs EvoS and the Binghamton Neighborhood Project. He also is President of the Evolution Institute, which formulates public policy from an evolutionary perspective.
Almost every important human endeavor requires people working in groups, including families, neighborhoods, volunteer organizations, churches, businesses, and governments. Some groups work well and others are spectacular failures. As President of the Evolution Institute, I and my colleagues are developing a method for increasing the performance of groups called PROSOCIAL and we are seeking groups for piloting the method. Come to community lab to learn about PROSOCIAL and to see if it might be useful for YOUR group!
The Binghamton Community Lab is a gathering place for citizen investigators to create and support improvements that will grow a healthier, wealthier and stronger Binghamton region. The series, held regularly on the third Tuesday of each month will be facilitated by David Sloan Wilson, SUNY distinguished professor of biology and anthropology at Binghamton University and founder of the Binghamton Neighborhood Project, and David Currie, director of the Binghamton Regional Sustainability Coalition.
