What is effective altruism?

Effective altruism is an international movement that tries to answer the question ‘how can you, with the resources you have, help others as much as possible?’ And how do you know that what you do actually makes a difference? We use evidence and critical thinking to find out what efforts that have the largest positive impact in the world. It could be to find out how efficient charities are and how you can make a positive input through your career. Effective altruism is also about being generous with your time and money, and to let the insight you get influence your actions.

The scientific and industrial revolutions transformed both our understanding of the world and our ability to alter it. What we need is an ethical revolution to match - a revolution in how we think about doing good.
— Will MacAskill, Professor at Oxford University
