How do we make better decisions about health, wealth or the climate? Experiments are a great way to find out. In this interactive event you are invited to immerse yourself into some classic experiments on decision -making that will tell you about your tolerance for risks, whether you are a cooperative person, and what may keep you from helping others more. In the second part of the event researchers from University of Birminham's behavioural economics group will explain how they apply similar experiments to help policymakers make better decisions about Covid-19, stopping climate change or helping those in need. This event will be led by the experimental economics group at the University of Birmingham, including Dr Johannes Lohse, Dr Rebecca McDonald, Dr Danae Arroyos-Calvera, and Prof Kimberley Scharf.
