What we're about
Upcoming events (1)
The topic of this group discussion is global health and development: how can we most improve the health and well-being of the people most in need?
Some prompts to think about:
- Are there any better ways to improve the lives of people living today?
- Are there any newer or neglected areas of global health not getting enough attention?
- How important is to create sustainable solutions that address root causes vs directly applying "band-aid" solutions that address the symptoms?
- How can we improve public messaging of this cause-area to encourage more people to give to it?
LOCATION: Lim Chhour food court on K Road
We meet every month to discuss topics relating to effective altruism and get to know each other better. We consider importance, neglectedness, and tractability to look for underrated opportunities to make the world a better place, and then we support each other in pursuing those opportunities. We plan for the long term: building, not burnout.
OPEN TO ALL: Our group is open to people from all stages and walks of life including working professionals, students, retirees, and any other people interested in effective altruism are warmly invited to attend.
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 religions, belief systems, and political perspectives are welcome at our meetings.
TIME: Don't worry if you can't make it on time. It's fine to turn up late.
READ UP: Discussion goes better when you come informed. At the same time, if you don't get a chance to read up, we'd rather you still come along than not!
