“The challenge for us is this: How can we ensure that, when we try to help others, we do so as effectively as possible?”– William MacAskill
What is Effective Altruism?
Effective Altruism (often referred to as EA) is a social movement and intellectual project that uses evidence and careful reasoning to determine the most effective ways of doing good. It’s a large and diverse community spread around the globe, taking action on various causes such as improving global health and animal welfare and reducing existential risks in order to alleviate suffering and improve lives effectively.
What does EA Tübingen do?
EA Tübingen, as one of many EA local groups around the globe, serves as an entry point to the community. We are also an official student group of our local university. Our goal is to offer a platform to meet and discuss topics related to Effective Altruism and spread those ideas. For this we have weekly meet-ups, discussions and informal social meetings each Friday at 18:00 (Currently on Zoom. Check the schedule for access links). Everyone is invited to join. No prior knowledge of Effective Altruism is required. If that sounds interesting to you, just check out the schedule and we will be happy to welcome you the next time we meet. You can also find out more on our Facebook page or join our Facebook group (Here you will also find links to our WhatsApp groups).
