EAGxAustralia 2017 is a conference for people who are interested in doing good better. Discuss the latest ideas in the field of effective altruism, share new research, familiarise yourself with core concepts, and coordinate on global projects with experts in creating impact.
We use evidence and careful analysis to find the very best causes to work on and then help you identify how to do the most good you can, with the time and money you have.
The event will kick-off with a dynamic panel of experts for a town-hall style night keynote, and presentations from several prominent public intellectuals and change makers. What follows will be a 2 day immersive and inspiring conference featuring a diverse set of experts all primed to help us tackle the biggest issues in Effective Altruism via practical workshops and engaging sessions. Get to grips with cause areas such as global poverty, existential risk and animal suffering and take away actionable advice for developing for-purpose business and making better life choices.
The conference hopes to help grow and equip a community of people striving to do good better.
