It’s been five years since our last EAGxPrague conference, which helped launch the Czech EA community. A lot has changed in the last five years and we are thrilled to organize this conference again— bigger and better than before!

About

The event will bring together about 400 members of the EA community to connect with each other, and to explore the best ways to improve the world. This is an in-person conference, so you will have to come to Prague to attend. (Keep in mind that Prague is arguably the most beautiful city in the world!) If the conference is canceled or postponed due to the COVID-19 situation, you will get a full refund on your ticket.

EAGxPrague is organized by the Czech Association for Effective Altruism (CZEA) with the help of many volunteers from around the world!

Travel and accommodation

The conference officially starts on Friday, December 3 at 6 p.m. and finishes on Sunday, December 5 at 6 p.m.. We encourage you to arrive a couple of days before or after for pre-meetings or to explore Prague. We will provide a coworking space during the day on Friday where you can set up meetings with attendees. You may also want to stay after the conference to explore Prague or have follow-up meetings. We will offer organized guided tours and social activities. There will also likely be an optional EA community workathon between 7-9 December, so participants might consider staying longer to attend this community event.

COVID-19

We are monitoring the current COVID situation and currently think it is unlikely that the event will be cancelled.

Here is our current COVID-19 policy. We will send a note to all registered attendees in case of any substantial changes.

The two most relevant points of the policy are:

  • We will be requiring that all our participants are fully vaccinated at the time of the event.
  • The current rules in the Czech Republic require masks to be worn at all indoors public events. You will not need to wear your mask when you are eating or drinking.

Volunteer

We are looking for volunteers who can help us with the event during the weekend. We offer a wide variety of opportunities and flexible time commitment. You get to be part of an awesome team making the event run smoothly and having a positive impact on the attendee experience!

If you would like to volunteer at EAGxPrague, please apply for the conference (mention wanting to volunteer in your application) and select the option to volunteer when you register.
