This is a meetup group for learning about how to make a difference in an effective way. This group discusses topics such as global issues, animal activism, philanthropy and topics related to charities and non-profits. We also talk about any topics covered in Giving What We Can (a charity that compares different charities in the global health sector), 80,000 Hours (an organization based on how we can do more good through which career we choose) and The Life You Can Save (a charity that encourages people to give to fight extreme poverty).
