What we're about

EVERYONE WELCOME - ESPECIALLY NEWCOMERS

Whether you've only just heard of Effective Altruism and are wondering what it is, or are a die-hard Effective Altruist who's asking 'how can I do as much good as possible?' and has been waiting for a local group to materialise - this meetup will be friendly and fun for everyone.

Possible topics of discussion: what is Effective Altruism? How can we most help humans? (see e.g. http://www.givewell.org/charities/top-charities ) What about systemic change? How can we most help animals? (see e.g. https://animalcharityevaluators.org/ ) How can I have the greatest impact with my career? (see e.g. https://80000hours.org/career-guide/ ) How can we best prevent existential risk (see e.g. http://cser.org/ )? How should we prioritise which causes to focus on (see e.g. https://80000hours.org/articles/cause-selection/ )? What can we do as a local group to promote Effective Altruism?
