Welcome to Effective Altruism Melbourne!

We are the local chapter of an international community of people trying to do as much good as possible.

Effective altruists combine the head and the heart. The heart motivates us to be empathetic and and altruistic towards others, while the head makes sure that what we do is effective and well-directed.

We ask questions such as: Which causes will have the greatest impact on the world? Where should we devote our time and money? Whichcareers do the most good? 

In Melbourne, we host regular informal lunches, talks by international effective altruists, and group excursions to interesting events.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
