There are more pressing problems in the world than we can solve, yet given our constraints, we don't typically think about addressing priorities and improving lives in the most 'effective' ways we can. Effective altruists use reason and evidence to ask - "How can we make the most positive impact in the world?" 

Causes, methodologies, and philanthropic organizations are not all equal - some are tens to thousands of times more far-reaching and effective than others. Morally and practically, many would agree we should choose the best and maximal ways to make positive impact. 

Effective altruism takes a rational, iterative approach to philanthropy and global priorities using concepts like cause neutrality, counterfactual reasoning, scale & cost-effectiveness. Effective altruists focus on a range of things such as supporting global health & poverty initiatives, researching far future risks, preventing animal cruelty, effecting policy changes, applying impact-driven career choice, and donating to highly effective charities.

Effective Altruism Shanghai is the first Chinese chapter of the global EA movement, affiliated with the Oxford-based Centre For Effective Altruism and sponsored by The Life You Can Save.

We are looking for people who are passionate about social impact, and exploring an ambitious approach to philanthropy. Come meet other EAs, learn more, and get involved!
