Attendees

Note that this conference is aimed at people who:

  • Are familiar with the ideas of effective altruism (EA)
  • Share EA core values (commitment to help others, scientific mindset, openness, integrity, collaborative spirit)
  • Want to implement the EA philosophy to do the most good

If you are new to effective altruism, we recommend reading up on the core ideas and (if possible) join local meetups first.

We are looking forward to an inspiring conference with you!
