The largest of the EA Global conferences, this event will place a special emphasis on effective altruism as a community and will feature an array of workshops, discussions and smaller talks in the style of an "unconference." Programming will focus on the effective altruism community itself, with potential tracks including:

  • How can the EA community find important causes we might be overlooking? How has this happened in the past?
  • How can we make people and projects in the EA community more effective?
  • Can we help others become more empathetic / altruistic? What makes people motivated to do good?
