About this talk
Toby Ord is a philosopher at Oxford University's Future of Humanity Institute. His work focuses on the big picture questions facing humanity: What are the most important issues of our time? And how can we best address them?
Toby's earlier work explored the ethics of global health and global poverty. This led him to create an international society called Giving What We Can, whose members have pledged over $2 billion to unusually effective charities. He also co-founded the wider effective altruism movement, encouraging tens of thousands of people to use reason and evidence to help others as much as possible.
