Getting (more) involved in Effective Altruism

  • Whitechapel, London, England United Kingdom (map)

LOCATION UPDATE: The weather, alas, is not on our side this weekend, so we will meet at Holly's place in Whitechapel instead - please email hello@ealondon.com for the exact address. Text/call 07949936212 if you can't find us on the day.

  • Inspired by the Effective Altruism (EA) community but don't know where to start?
  • Following EA online but not sure what engaging with a local community could offer?
  • Or feeling it's time to take the next step in aligning your actions with your EA values?

Then congratulations, you have clicked on the right event! We'll be exploring the various ways that you can apply EA to different areas of your life, including donations and career but also some other important areas that you may not have considered.

Please note that this event assumes an existing basic familiarity with the EA approach to trying to make the world a better place. For an introduction to Effective Altruism, check out effectivealtruism.org or the book Doing Good Better by Will MacAskill.
