Effective Altruism is all about combining empathy, reason and evidence. If you’re ready to rethink social impact, you’re ready to join us.
Effective Altruism is a philosophical and social movement that applies evidence and reason to determine the most effective ways to improve the world. Effective Altruists aim to consider all causes and actions, and then act in the way that brings about the greatest positive impact. It is this broad evidence-based approach that distinguishes effective altruism from traditional altruism or charity. While a substantial proportion of Effective Altruists have focused on the nonprofit sector, the philosophy of Effective Altruism applies much more broadly, e.g., to prioritising the scientific projects, companies, and policy initiatives which can be estimated to save and improve the most lives.
