Event Details

Do you love the Binghamton area and want it to thrive? Are you frustrated by all the obstacles that must be overcome, which might have thwarted your efforts in the past? If so, then join us for an evening of food, drink, conviviality, and change at the Violet Room of Lost Dog Café on Dec. 13th, 7-9pm
This is an RSVP event for individuals and groups who seriously want to work for positive change in our area. Binghamton University Professor David Sloan Wilson will introduce a new framework for positive change called ‘Prosocial’, which is being implemented in communities around the world. Prosocial begins by working with single groups to improve their sense of identity and purpose and ability to get things done. Then it helps the groups to assemble into sustainable “cultural ecosystems”.
To reserve a place, please email David at Include a brief description of yourself and groups in the Binghamton area that you are currently involved with. You will be asked to complete a short online survey* about the groups in your life, which will provide a snapshot of where we are now, to prepare for where we want to go.
*The survey has been approved by Binghamton’s Human Subject Review Board. Results will be reported in a way that does not reveal the identity of any individual or group.
David Sloan Wilson is President of the Evolution Institute ( and a Distinguished Professor of Biology and Anthropology at Binghamton University.
