The EA Hub was relaunched in April and is now home to over 700 profiles of Effective Altruists and over 200 local groups in more than 50 countries all over the world. We await around 2000 more of our former users to reactivate their accounts by changing their password (you can do this here), and welcome new users to create a profile here.
Connecting ideas with talent, resources, and support is one of the biggest bottlenecks of high potential individuals and a cause of promising ideas not reaching fruition.
The vision for the Hub is to enable and inspire collaboration between EAs by making it easier for people to learn, network, and work together on promising initiatives. By synchronising projects, individuals, and groups, initiatives can build traction more effectively. The EA Hub also links to other resources and platforms in the EA space, including the Effective Altruism Forum, job and volunteering opportunities, Donation Swap, and Effective Thesis.
We’ve recently added new features, including listing job candidates, volunteers, people willing to give presentations. At the time of writing this post, we list 159 job candidates, 171 volunteers, and 117 speakers awaiting engagement on new altruistic initiatives.
We’ve also implemented features allowing you to link your social media profiles and a personal website.
We manually approve each new account to make sure that no spam gets through and you are only served the useful and true information posted by fellow EAs and EA-friendly people.
The resources section is an extensive and up to date collection of written guides and resources, answering the need of local group leaders and regular EAs alike. Look out for an upcoming Forum post about the resources.
The Hub team continues to work with the Centre for Effective Altruism (CEA) on curating http://eahub.org/groups, the golden source of information on local chapters of Effective Altruism around the world, having recently updated our listing with the results of the 2019 Local Group Organizers Survey.
In 2020, we aim to deliver on our promise to keep the platform useful, stable, secure and growing.
See you on the EA Hub!
