There are three options for our December meeting:
- Read Blueprint: The Evolutionary Origins of a Good Society by Nicholas A. Christakis
- Write to Sam for a copy of the article Deliver us from Evil: How Biology, not Religion, Made Humans Moral
- 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.

Join our Global Presidential Primary Team!
Democrats Abroad Switzerland’s Geneva chapter needs volunteers to join the DACH Geneva GPP Team.
As an official part of the Democratic National Committee, DA is hosting a global primary as part of the Democratic Party’s 2020 Presidential Primary.
During the global primary, DA members are invited to vote for their preferred presidential primary candidate, and then delegates from DA will go to the DNC to cast their votes for the candidate we select.
It’s an exciting opportunity to make our voices heard directly as Americans living abroad and one of the most important things we do! We need your help to make this happen!
DACH Geneva’s GPP team will help publicize the Global Primary and organize opportunities for in-person voting right in Geneva during the week of March 3-10, 2020 (exact dates to be determined). We need volunteers to help in several areas, including the following:
- Publicity and media relations (French speakers particularly welcome!)
- Poll workers
- Voter registration volunteers
- Official vote counters
If you’re interested in helping or would like to learn more, please join us for our first informational meeting on November 19 from 6:30-8:30 pm at Mulligan’s Irish Pub, or write to Laura Messenger, Geneva Chapter Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
