EAGx events are community-organized conferences about effective altruism.
More information and registration for EAGx Australia is available at http://www.eagxaustralia.com
This year’s theme is Stay Curious, as sometimes the most effective ideas come from unexpected places. With a diverse line-up of speakers discussing a range of both familiar and under-explored topics, we think there’ll be something new for everyone.
This conference will dive deeper into classic topics of EA such as alleviating global poverty, safely developing artificial intelligence, improving animal welfare and EA community building, as well as explore relatively newer areas of focus within effective altruism, such as mental health, anti-aging, biotech policy, reducing power war risks, geoengineering, nuclear non-proliferation, and more.
At the conference you’ll have the opportunity to: Learn more about how you can do the most good possible Hear from EA experts Discuss the latest ideas and research in the field of effective altruism Familiarise yourself with core concepts Coordinate on global and local projects with experts in creating impact Meet like-minded, altruistic people
The conference will include a Friday night keynote event, dozens of speakers, and workshops for you to participate in, over the course of 3 days. There’ll also be a social event on the Saturday night, which is a great chance to get to know fellow effective altruists. Tickets are strictly limited – register now to avoid missing out.
Date: Friday to Sunday, 13th-15th July Location Friday night event: University of Melbourne Location Saturday and Sunday events: AMREP Education Centre, Alfred Medical Research and Education Precinct, Alfred Hospital
