Doing Good Better: With Effective Altruism

Description
Have you been thinking about how you can do good better?

Effective Altruism (EA) might be your answer.

Effective Altruism is about using our limited resources effectively to create a much greater impact. As part of the global movement, EA SG is bringing to you the ideas, research and community network that you need. We want to support you in figuring out how you can do the most good that you can in the world.

Effective Altruism will lead you to discover causes that you might not have thought of in the first place. Learn about cause prioritisation and impact evaluation — concepts that make you view the world’s greatest problems differently.

Our speakers will be sharing with you:
  1. Giving What We Can: A Pledge That Will Change Your Life
  2. What Is Considered an Effective Charity?
  3. Artificial Intelligence (AI): Safety & Risks
  4. Future of Food: The End of Factory Farming
  5. Making Your CSR Count: Cause Prioritisation & Impact Evaluation
  6. Good Intentions: What’s the Harm in Voluntourism?
  7. Best Giving Opportunities in Southeast Asia

The best ways to do good can be counterintuitive. Rather than just doing what feels right, we use evidence and careful analysis to find the very best causes to work on.

Join us for this inaugural conference-style EA event in Singapore. We are expecting this to be the biggest EA gathering in Singapore to date. Don't miss the chance to meet those who are like-minded and impact-oriented, like you.

Doing good is simple. Doing good effectively is not. Learn how you can do good better on 18th Aug.

*As event organisers, we try to be conscious of our impact on the environment and animal welfare as much as possible. While not everyone in the community has to agree, we try to be thoughtful in how we can do good through our decision-making processes.

Organised by: Effective Altruism Singapore (EA SG)

Effective Altruism Singapore (EA SG) is part of the network of EA chapters globally.

Effective Altruism (EA) is about using evidence and and careful reasoning to figure out how we can improve the world. We ask, "With limited time and money, how can I create the greatest positive impact possible?"

We believe that with the affluence in Singapore, we have a great opportunity to use our resources more effectively to make a positive difference in the world. At EA SG, we are focused on effective giving, high impact careers as well as research.

We engage with donors, students, philanthropists, corporates, and social impact organisations to share ideas and look at ways for how to do good more effectively.
