What we're about

A group to discuss and promote the idea of Effective Altruism. This encompasses a wide array of groups who want to find a way to do the most good, following the general concept that donating is ethically important and that it can be done using evidence and reason to have the greatest positive impact.

Please join our Perth Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1009076385788998/) which will be used as the main discussion forum and for event promotion, and/or follow the UWA Facebook Group (https://www.facebook.com/Effective-Altruism-UWA-1650984431847754/timeline/), and make sure the Meet Up emails are not going into your junk email box :)

For an introduction to to Effective Altruism have a look at the Effective Altruism website (http://www.effectivealtruism.org/), the Wiki page (http://wiki.effectivealtruismhub.com/index.php?title=Effective_Altruism_Wiki), or anyone interested in learning more should also check out:
