Petrov Day Celebration!
35 years ago this week, Stanislav Petrov disobeyed orders and single handedly prevented the world from descending into Nuclear War. Let's celebrate this auspicious occasion! At 7pm we will have a traditional vegan Russian meal of Tempeh Stroganoff and lentil cabbage rolls, followed by a viewing of "The Man Who Saved The World", a doco/drama about Petrov. All are welcome! Please try to be accurate with your "going" click to ensure there is the right amount of stroganoff for everyone. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1983_Soviet_nuclear_false_alarm_incident

    What we're about

    Effective Altruism is applying evidence, reason and rationality to the goal of making the world a better place. It is an international movement, that recognises that nearly everyone in wealthy countries have an amazing ability to do good in the world.

    Examples of Effective Altruism: giving to the most cost-effective charities, volunteering with the most high impact organisations, thinking critically about what causes to support, consuming ethically, and choosing a career in a way that maximizes impact.

    Effective Altruists meet up every month or so to share ideas on ethics, causes, charities, effective actions and career choices. If you are interested in doing good in the world, then come to a meet up and hear the ideas! For an introduction to effective altruism, check out Peter Singer's TED talk.
