Welcome to the first ever EAGxNordics

About the conference

Our talks and workshop program is now available here, listing all speaker names and workshop holders. All meetups, other networking activities and talk details will be added soon.

This EA Globalx conference is about taking action and doing good better, by identifying the concrete ways through which we can have the greatest positive impact. The event will bring together 150 EAs to explore the most effective and evidence-based ways to improve the world, and then create plans for how to use our resources to have the greatest positive impact. The focus of the conference is to provide a clear understanding of key EA concepts, new developments in the global community’s thinking, and what different ways of doing good can look like.

Attendees will get the chance to meet other EAs from across Europe, get to know the local EA communities, and learn how they can have a great positive impact.

The conference welcomes EAs of all backgrounds - academics, students and working professionals - to discuss theory and action to solve the world’s most pressing problems. There will be both introductory and advanced talks on various topics related to effective altruism. In addition, there will be interactive discussions, workshops and meet ups where the focus is on taking action.

EAGxNordics is organized by EA Norway and EA Sweden.
