Our lives are inextricably linked to those of the people around us. Our societies and communities shape our views, our expectations and our behaviours. Join us for an evening exploring the notions of prosocial and antisocial behaviour through a panel discussion with academic experts in anthropology, psychology, social neuroscience and data science. We will be asking our panel of experts big questions about our human past, current phenomena in social behaviours, the role of social influence and what this all means for the future of our species.
