How can you make a positive difference in the world? Which causes should you support? Which charities are the most effective? Which careers have the greatest potential for doing good?

Effective altruism is about using evidence and reason to find out how to answer questions like these.

In this event, we'll explore some key topics in effective altruism: 
- What is effective altruism? The research, tools and results
We will then explore two focus areas:

- Existential risks, what are they and what can we do about them?
- Animal rights from an effective altruism-perspective - an example of how effective altruism-ideas can be applied to reach greater results

Doors open at 17.30 for mingle, the first talk starts at 18.00. Please contact gabriella@effektivaltruism.org if you have any questions.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
