Seminar: Intro to Effective Altruism
Effective Altruism Geneva, 14. März, 18:30 – 20:30
Thinking about what to do with your life? Want to contribute to a better future?
Our seminar lets you discover the challenges of world-improvement and will give you ideas on how you can contribute effectively.
We will cover:
– Tools, concepts and methods to do more good
– The psychology and philosophy of doing good
– Open opportunities for you to do the most good you can
Together, we will work through and discuss a variety of issues related to trade-offs, crucial considerations and prioritisation in a complex world with limited resources. Places are limited to 20 people.
Effective Altruism is a toolkit for impact, collectively developed by a growing community of dedicated individuals. Our focus lies on identifying the big and neglected problems of our time. If a problem is solvable, we promote effective solutions to it. If an issue seems unsolvable, we seek to understand why. Sometimes, it is impossible to advance, but sometimes, it only takes more people who conduct research to develop better solutions.
The problem with systematically doing good is that our minds did not evolve to primarily improve the world. This seminar ranges from actionable career advice, to tools for clearer thinking, to reflections on the long-term future of our civilisation. It will help you find your own way into a network of people and organisations who are serious about creating a better tomorrow.
The three sessions will take place on Wednesdays from 6:30pm to 8:30pm at Uni Mail. We offer the series once a month in March, April and May. Every third Saturday of the month we are also offering a one-day version of this course – get in touch if you are interested as places are limited for that one.
