The goal of EA Global is to increase attendees’ knowledge, skills and networks to enable them to do the most good possible. Content will be aimed at existing EA community members who already have a solid understanding of effective altruism, but would like to gain skills, network, master more complex problems, or move into new roles.
Given the developing situation with the coronavirus outbreak, we can’t guarantee that the London event will definitely go ahead as planned. We hope we won’t have to cancel, but we recommend that you explore refundable options when booking your travel and accommodation.
Programming will include:
- Presentations on the latest ideas at the frontiers of the EA movement
- Workshops to help improve your thinking and execution
- Meetups, networking, office hours and social activities
You can also nominate a speaker (including yourself) or share other content suggestions here.
Who is EA Global a good fit for?
We think the following kinds of attendees are particularly likely to find the conference valuable:
- People already familiar with the key ideas of effective altruism
- People further advanced in their studies or careers
- People seeking the opportunity to master more complex problems in effective altruism, learn new skills, or get help from the community
- People actively seeking work focused on high-priority global issues
- People from the groups above who are interested in mentoring other attendees
We use an application process to match our available spaces with the people we think will gain the most from the conference. Applications for EA Global: London 2020 will open a few months before the conference.
If you are new to effective altruism, we recommend attending an event hosted by your local EA Group before applying to EA Global.
Registration and the opening reception will open around 6 PM on Friday (though you can arrive and register any time during the weekend).
Saturday and Sunday will have full-day schedules with a closing reception ending around 10 PM on Sunday evening.
