Everyday Longtermism

by Ivan BurdukNo comments


We meet every second Tuesday to discuss topics relating to effective altruism and get to know each other better.

TOPIC: This week we will discuss Everyday Longtermism, as outlined in this forum post: https://forum.effectivealtruism.org/.../everyday-longtermism

Sometimes there is a particular theme that we'll be committed to discussing, but generally, the members named here will always be eager to discuss any of their listed research interests: https://roamresearch.com/#/app/EAAKL/page/CDU1L3w-Q

If there is a particular EA topic that you're in the mood to discuss, remember to mention it to an organizer so that we can list it here.

We consider scale, neglectedness, and tractability ( https://concepts.effectivealtruism.org/.../importance.../) to look for underrated opportunities to make the world a better place, and then we support each other in pursuing those opportunities. We plan for the long term: building, not burnout.

OPEN TO ALL: Our group is open to people from all stages and walks of life including working professionals, students, retirees, and any other people interested in effective altruism are warmly invited to attend.

We strive to ensure a diverse set of voices are heard, and we emphasize that women and non-binary people, tangata whenua and other people of colour, and people of all religions, belief systems, and political perspectives conservative and liberal are welcome at our meetings to share in our common interest in effective altruism.

TIME: Don't worry if you can't make it on time. It's fine to turn up late. If you're later than 20:00 though, we may have finished up or moved. Give us a call to find out if we are still around.

READ UP: Discussion goes better when you come informed. At the same time, if you don't get a chance to read up, we'd rather you still come along than not!

FOOD: Vegan snacks and drinks are provided and any cost-obligations at commercial venues are covered. If we are meeting at a non-commercial venue we are open to anyone contributing snacks of their own. We sometimes go for dinner at a vegan place, or a vegan-friendly place, at around 20:00.

PARKING: There is street parking available around Union St/Drake St, or you can park at Victoria Park. Alternatively you could try the Wilson parking at Victoria Park Market Carpark.

MOBILITY PARKING: There are some mobility parking spaces on Union St.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT ACCESS: Check AT.govt.nz for the route - there are generally great public transport links from most parts of the city.See Less
