What we're about

Want to make the world the best place it can be?

Effective altruism is a worldwide movement that uses rational thinking and science to have the best possible impact. To learn more about effective altruism, the best place to start is the international EA website (https://www.effectivealtruism.org/articles/introduction-to-effective-altruism/).

On this platform, EA meetup organisers in cities throughout the Netherlands can post their events. See this link (https://effectiefaltruisme.nl/en/effective-altruism-netherlands/#community) for a list of local groups in the Netherlands, including a link to their Facebook groups.

Feel free to also join the community discussion in our national Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/EffectiefAltruisme/)!

This platform is managed by Effective Altruism Netherlands (http://effectiefaltruisme.nl/en/) (EAN), a registered charity with the goal of enabling and encouraging individuals and organisations to do the most good.
EAN's main focus (http://effective-altruism.com/ea/1c8/testing_an_ea_networkbuilding_strategy_in_the/) is on growing specialised EA networks in the Netherlands – by collaborating with capable 'network builders'.

Have any questions? Want to post your EA event here? Please let us know via info@effectiefaltruisme.nl.
We'd love to meet you at an event soon!
