For this month's meetup at Teamwork, Chris Popa will give a talk for us! Here's his summary:
Effective altruists define key cause areas based on scale, neglectedness and solvability and then identify the most effective interventions in each cause area individually. However, some interventions can have a significant impact on more than one cause area. Animal agriculture not only causes an immense amount of animal suffering, but also is a key driver in many other of the world’s most pressing problems. This talk raises awareness for the issue of intercausal impact and makes a case for reducing and eliminating animals from the global food system in order to tackle multiple cause areas at once.
Chris is a fundraiser and speaker for the EA-aligned non-profit organisation ProVeg, which aims to reduce the global consumption of animals by replacing animal products with plant-based and cultivated foods.
