Europe is about to get significantly warmer and lighter[1]. People like warmth[2] and light[3], so we (CEA) have been busy organising several EA conferences in Europe over the next few months in partnership with local community-builders and EA groups:

You can apply to all of these events using the same application details, bar a few small questions specific to each event.

Which events should I apply to?

(mostly pulled from our FAQ page)

EA Global is mostly aimed at people who have a solid understanding of the core ideas of EA and who are taking significant actions based on those ideas. Many EA Global attendees are already professionally working on effective-altruism-inspired projects or working out how best to work on such projects. EA Global is for EAs around the world and has no location restrictions (though we recommend applying ASAP if you will need a visa to enter the UK).

EAGx conferences have a lower bar. They are for people who are:

  • Familiar with the core ideas of effective altruism;
  • Interested in learning more about what to do with these ideas.

EAGx events also have a more regional focus:

  • EAGxCambridge is for people who are based in the UK or Ireland, or have plans to move to the UK within the next year;
  • EAGxNordics is primarily for people in the Nordics, but also welcomes international applications;
  • EAGxWarsaw is primarily for people based in Eastern Europe but also welcomes international applications.

If you want to attend but are unsure about whether to apply, please err on the side of applying!

Hi all, Stian from the EAGxNordics team here!

If you have any questions at all, you can reply to this message, shoot us an email at nordics@eaglobalx.org, or send me a dm here and we'll get to them shortly!

Hope to see you in Stockholm!

Good luck with the conference :)

Love it nice one! EA Cambridge was hugely influential for me a few years ago, although we didn't have a conference like this the year I was there.

But I must say if you really want warmth and light, come here to Uganda ;).

OK, but we should legit have an EAGxKampala.  (Or possibly Kigali or Nairobi or Dar, but EAGxEast Africa.)

Good footnotes. See y'all in London.

Heya, we at EAGxCambridge are super excited to see you in a couple of weeks, and we're doing everything we can to ensure sunny weather.

Get those applications in before the deadline Friday 11.59pm to secure your place!

Drop us a line at cambridge@eaglobalx.org for questions (we're unlikely to see Forum DMs).
