Event description

Description

This is a local live streaming event here in Melbourne of the Effective Altruism Global x Australia Conference held in Sydney over the same weekend. Come along to discover how you can do good better, discuss new ideas in Effective Altruism, coordinate on global and local projects, and meet like-minded altruistic people.


The program will include watching some introductory talks from the conference keynote speakers, followed by live streaming of the afternoon session, and ending with a group discussion accompanied by refreshments and nibbles.

Join and share the event on Facebook or MeetUp.com.

We will follow up the event by going to dinner at Madame K's Vegetarian restaurant in Fitzroy. Please feel welcome to join us whether or not you can attend the event.


Effective Altruism is a global social movement based around one simple question:

“How can I do the most good?”

Most of us want to make a difference. We see suffering, injustice and death, and are moved to do something about them. But working out what that ‘something’ is, let alone doing it, is a difficult problem.

Which cause should you support if you really want to make a difference? What career choices will help you make a significant contribution? Which charities will use your donation effectively? If you don’t choose well, you risk wasting your time and money. But if you choose wisely, you have a tremendous chance to improve the world.

Rather than just doing what feels right, we focus on using evidence and careful analysis to find the very best causes to work on.

We recommend reading more at EffectiveAltruism.org and WhatIsEffectiveAltruism.com.
