Effective AltruismInnsendt: 13. august 2015
Have you ever asked yourself how to make a difference? It has never been more possible for you to have a meaningful, positive impact on a massive scale and to have an unprecedented opportunity to save lives and prevent unnecessary suffering.
Altruism is helping others for their own sake. Most humans are wired to feel empathy and compassion. We want to help – but some ways of helping are more effective than others.
Effective Altruism is a growing social movement that combines both the heart and the head: compassion guided by data and reason, trying to answer the question: Of all possible ways to make a difference, how can I make the greatest difference?
Our resources are limited, so if we want to do the most good, we have to prioritise between different important causes. In this presentation, we’ll explore some of the surprising science behind how we can do the most good with our limited time and energy.
Please note that the event will take place in English.
Wednesday, 26th August / 18.30 / 2nd floor
