Social Butterflies: Reclaiming the Positive Power of Social Networks
10 June 2019, 18:30 to 19:45 Please note: this event has passed
The rise of social media has sent our social instincts into overdrive, and the impact of our networks has never been greater. But what if we could reclaim the positive power that influences our decisions, to behave better and be happier?
Join Dr Michael Sanders and Susannah Hume for a talk about their new book, Social Butterflies: Reclaiming the Positive Power of Social Networks, which builds on the findings of their cutting-edge research at the world's first "Nudge Unit", as well as illuminating case studies from experts around the world, to show how small changes in our environments can have a huge impact on where our instincts lead us.
This event will be followed by a drinks reception.
This is a free event, which means we overbook to allow for no-shows and to avoid empty seats. While we generally do not have to turn people away, this does mean we cannot guarantee everyone a place. Admission is on a first come, first served basis.
Please note we may video and take photos at the event for our own internal and external marketing purposes – if you would prefer not to be featured, please let us know in advance or make yourself known to a member of the events team on the night.
