Running Time:
00:34:25

On June 6, 2015, the Exploratorium hosted the Science of Sharing Forum, a public event featuring presentations by researchers and educators and activities exploring cooperation and sustainability. These talks and demonstrations shed light on how scientists study human behavior and fostered insight into large-scale societal challenges—such as energy use, ecosystem collapse, international conflict, and climate change—that depend on people negotiating ways to share finite resources and act for the long-term good of all.

Dr. Shachar Kariv is Benjamin N. Ward Professor of Economics and Economics Department Chair at UC Berkeley. He has been a visiting scholar at Stanford University, the Institute for Advanced Studies at Princeton, the European University Institute, the University of Oxford, and the Norwegian School of Economics.
