What we're about
Welcome to Effective Altruism Latvia!
Effective Altruism Latvia is a local chapter of the growing international movement called effective altruism. Effective altruists are dedicated to applying science, reason and rationality to create maximum positive impact on the world.
Combining the heart and the head, empathy with evidence, effective altruists ask: "With my limited time and resources, how can I do the most good?" They emphasize giving to the most cost-effective charities, prioritizing which high-impact causes to support and choosing career strategies that will help make a bigger difference.
We will meet up to discuss effective altruism and creative philanthropy strategies, to share experience from deep, intellectual insights to heart-warming laughter, and to meet like-minded, friendly people interested in making the world a better place. You're very welcome to join us even if you don't know anyone or have never met up before!
If you're new to effective altruism, here's some great introductory material:

• "Effective Altruism: Impact through Rationality (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O02-06mdkC4)" by Lucius Caviola, Adriano Mannino
