Public Engagement

Public Engagement

Behavioural and evolutionary science tackles important questions about ourselves and the living world. We're committed to bringing the results of this work to the wider community.


We run regular engagement activities. They include:

  • giving talks to adult and school-age audiences
  • collaborating with artists to demonstrate the real world significance of our research
  • working with the media
  • organising reading groups

Visit our events feed to find details of upcoming activities.

Press reports

Our discoveries often appear in the press, both at home and abroad.

In 2009, we ran a major series of events to celebrate the Darwin bicentenary. In 2013, we presented events in the British Science Festival held in Newcastle.
