The Evolution Institute: A Think-Tank That Doesn’t Just Think:

We Think
We undertake original research both theorectical and applied; we hold workshops with leading scientists from around the globe; we publish in leading journals to share information and to advance the sciences.
We Say
A quiet voice is not heard. Though our own media outlets, our workshops, and our direct communications, the voices of sciences are heard in an effort to influence policy and program decisions that can lead to a better quality of life.
We Do
Applied work provides the laboratory to improve quality of life. Combining theorectical work with best practices and working in collaboration with practitioners, we create models that can empirically demonstrate the value of applying this science.
