What we're about

For everyone interested in using evidence to find more effective ways to give and to have a career that makes an impact addressing the world's most pressing problems.

We are building a community of people committed doing as much good as possible in life. We consider scale, neglectedness, and tractability to look for underrated opportunities to do good and then go over those opportunities. We support and care for one another to plan for the long term: building, not burnout.

We meet:

- EVERY SECOND TUESDAY for a reading group (find the event page for more details)

- ONLINE EVERY DAY in our Facebook chat at FB Chat https://m.me/join/Abaero_uwyCzE_9m

We meet to network and meet aspiring effective altruists, find out more about effective altruism, current global trends, and learn more about the world's most pressing problems and how you can use your career to solve them!

We are loosely aligned to the global EA movement. You can read more about the global movement here https://www.effectivealtruism.org/ or read third party summary here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Effective_altruism

Whether you're a seasoned EA or whether this is the first time you've ever heard of EA, you are warmly welcome to come along and find out more.

OPEN TO ALL: We strive to ensure a diverse set of voices are heard, and we emphasize that women and non-binary people, tangata whenua and other people of colour, and people of all ages, religions, belief systems, and political perspectives conservative and liberal are welcome at our meetings to share in our common interest in effective altruism.
