I help to lead an international network using the evolutionary science of culture and cooperation to study and improve social-ecological system sustainability around the world. The network, called Evolve and Sustain, and has more than 75 members across four continents. Researchers and practitioners with interest in evolutionary methods and approaches to solving sustainability challenges may apply to join the network (apply to join).
The network has been supported by grants from the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) and the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC), and has representation as a standing working group of the Cultural Evolution Society. We have developed an evolutionary framework for sustainability analysis and development.
