    American International Women's Club in Geneva, Switzerland

    DACH Geneva Book Group - December

    There are three options for our December meeting:

    1. Read Blueprint: The Evolutionary Origins of a Good Society by Nicholas A. Christakis
    2. Write to Sam for a copy of the article Deliver us from Evil: How Biology, not Religion, Made Humans Moral
    3. Watch #1 - Metacognition in the Anthropocene

    All three deal with how our human interactions in today's society, which has existed in its present form for +/-350 years, are driven by brains which have evolved over 10,000s of years.

    Come join us, whether or not you read or watched any/all of the above!

    Additional information about this (and future) event(s) can be found here.


    The AIWC is on the 4th floor of 11 rte. de Chêne.  That's near all the CEVA construction close to the Eaux-Vives railway station. There isn't any easy parking (you can take your luck on the street), but the #12 tram is convenient (walk downhill from stop Amandolier or uphill from stop Roches).  If using a parking garage use Villerouge, which is about a 10 minute walk (don't use the Coop 2000 -- it gets locked early and you might have to wait until Wednesday to retrieve your car).  Nominal start time is 18:30; if you arrive after 19:00 you'll need the door code to get in.

    NOTE: The #12 tram is running again after having a bus substitute this summer for construction work.  And starting in January 2020 the Leman Express will be running to the Gare des Eaux-Vives.


    Not required, but appreciated is if you can bring some food and/or drink to share and Fr. 5.- to help with the room rent.
