This group is for anyone in the Brisbane area who is interested in using evidence and reason to make the world a better place. Effective altruists are concerned with questions such as: To which charity should I donate in order to have the greatest effect? What causes are most worthy of my time and attention? How can choose a career that will have the most impact? We are always looking to meet new people, so come along to one of our events, or check us out on facebook - https://www.facebook.com/groups/1686724351553318/ For more information about effective altruism, check out the following links: An introductory TED talk by philosopher Peter Singer - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Diuv3XZQXyc Wikipedia article - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Effective_altruism GiveWell - a non-profit that evaluates charities in order to find the best opportunities for giving - http://blog.givewell.org/2013/08/13/effective-altruism/ 80,000 hrs - An organisation that gives career advice for people wanting to do as much good as possible with their careers - http://80000hours.org/what-is-an-effective-altruist
